Last week: 5 (-3) Record: 6-3 I picked the Giants to win last week, but it wasn’t confident and I only picked them because the Steelers had to travel on the day of the game because of Hurricane Sandy. In normal conditions, I would have picked the Steelers because this is right around when the Giants struggle. Under Tom Coughlin, they are 53-19 in the first 8 games of the season and 27-38 in the final 8 games of the season. If anyone in their division could give them a challenge for a playoff spot, they might not be in my top-12, but their division has been incredibly disappointing after a strong start to the season.
