Close game but I like the Giants to win.  Falcons have been struggling and motivation is more on the Giants' side in this one.  But since NFL teams seem to have split personalities, I will take NY and 11 points as part of a 3 team tease.

I hope your right about this one. I'm excited to see David Wilson get his first start. I have been carrying him on my fantasy team all season waiting for this very opportunity. Lets go GMEN!!!!!

How do the Giants establish the run game with rookie Wilson's first start on road??

How will play action be effective with no run game?

Giants pass rush will be negated by hard running from burner Turner in between the tackles.

Atlanta has too many weapons for Giants secondary.

Dunta Robinson + Asante Samuel...is there a better corner tandum in the NFL???

Don't give me this "Atlanta are frauds" nonsense. 11-2 doesn't come easy.

But who have they beaten??? The teams that were put in front of them.

ML Cleveland, Atlanta, Pittsburgh. NFC East battle continues into WEEK 16.

Aside from the records (ATLs schedule has been soft), the Giants are the better team statistically. (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa-ratings)

Couple that with the Coughlin and the Giants being battle tested in these games, gotta lean NYG.  (love unders)

NYG 24 ATL 20

G-men play like girly-men on the road.  ATL lose at home? Unlikely. ATL drop two in a row? Doubt it.  ATL -1 - xmas came early this year.

true about Pats-maybe thats why they replace so many great players every year and bring in older players who haven't won yet. Of course been quite a while since they got a ring. Just think it's hard for GMEN to turn it on late every year esp now that they got some bling..plus starting rb, cb, and safety out..ATL should step up today at home where they always play better IMO..

What u said is true about the giants injuries. I think they overcome that. Plus, the Giants just always step it up during big games...Look what they did to San Fran earlier this year. And everyone thought San Fran would come out with avengence from the playoff loss last year to the Gmen. So Im sure everyone is thinking the same for this game with ATL, Gmen also knocked them out of the playoffs last year convincingly, and they wont hesitate to play full throttle against them today. Gl tho

Glad I didn't listen to your pick here. Never ever bet against Atlanta at home. Someday you'll learn about NFL 101.
