The New York Giants (7-5) will host the New Orleans Saints (5-7) this coming Sunday evening at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ.
Game starts at 4:25 pm on Fox (TV) and WFAN (Radio).
Giants favorites over Saints.
Spread is -5 points.
My pick is the Giants.
It doesn't get any easy for the New York Giants as they have to take on one of the best offensive teams in all of football in the New Orleans Saints.
Also, this is where the Giants always end up in the second half of the season playing bad football and they start kicking back to high gears at this point of the season.
The Giants are one game up on the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFC East with four games to go in the season and starts with beating the Saints this coming weekend.
Here are the three things to do for the Giants in order to win:
(1) Eli Manning has to destroy the Saints defense who rank last in the NFL giving 440 yards per game this season. This shouldn't be a problem for Eli Manning or his offensive teammates.
(2) Stoping Drew Brees will be the biggest key heading into this game and to stop him, you have to force to make INT's, mistake passes and sack the guy down to the ground as soon as possible.
(3) Cut down on the penaltys from last week, when the Giants commited nine penaltys which costed them a ballgame against the Redskins and play mistake free football throughout the night if they have chance to win this game.
Out: TE Travis Beckum (Knee), S Tyler Sash (Hamstring)
Doubtful: S Kenny Phillips (Knee)
Questionable: WR Hakeem Nicks (Knee)
Out: CB Corey White (Knee), T Charles Brown (Knee)
Final score is Giants 45, Saints 24
BEST OF MAXIM

With the team set to face the Saints on Sunday, several Giants players said they find it hard to believe that Sean Payton has had no contact with the team.
Once again, the New York Giants are in the same place as always as they are at this point of the regualr season.
They are one game up on the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFC East division and they have to beat the Saints in order to stay where they are.
And beating Drew Brees is never an easy thing to do. The history of the Giants facing Drew Brees hasn't been ever that good...
If you want to play in January and February in the NFL, you have to win football games in December. The NFL season doesn’t begin in earnest until the turkey has been scarfed down on Thanksgiving, and with the first week of December just about in the rearview, it’s go time for teams on the bubble.
As is the case this time of the year, the Week 14 slate has a plethora of divisional...
JUSTICE SHALL PREVAIL
A report says the New Orleans Saints would consider suing the league if Sean Payton ended up leaving them to coach elsewhere.

The Saints will travel to New York to face the Giants on Sunday it what will pin the defending world champions against the 2009 champs.

As we all know, the New Orleans Saints' staff was tremendously effected by the "bountygate" program they had been running for the past few years. Sean Payton was probably effected the most, as he currently isn't recognized as the Saints' coach, serving a one-year ban from coaching the team. With all that happening to New Orleans in the past offseason, will Sean...
After the New York Giants 17-16 defeat to the Washington Redskins Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN that he and his teammates need to get "nasty" and show the "dog" inside them.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul agrees with Rolle.
“I'm behind Rolle 100 percent,” Pierre-Paul said via CBSSports.com. “We've been playing like we haven't. I think...
