MNF Pick: Giants @ Saints
Our Monday Night game of Week 12 features the 6-4 Giants going to NO to face the 7-3 Saints. This should be a great game to watch, no doubt. New Orleans will look to keep the top spot in the NFC South, while the Giants are looking to tie the Cowboys @ 7-4 for 1st place in the NFC East. A loss for either of these teams will hurt them bad, more so the Giants than Saints. The Giants have a lot of injuries which definitely will not help them against this Saints offense. Speaking of the Saints, their offense is a high-flying acrobatic showcase ready to explode at any moment. Drew Brees will most likely connect on some deep throws in this game; his offensive line will give him ample time to make those throws.
On the other side, we got Eli Manning, Brandon Jacobs and Hakeem Nicks on the Giants offense. Their offensive line is getting old and might falter against the Saints pass rush. Also, the Saints will probably force Manning to air it out by bringing extra men in the box.
Bottom line, New Orleans wins in a close one. The deficit will be within a TD.
