NFL: Giants vs Lions Preview


giants vs lionsThe New York Giants are set to compete in the first Monday Night Football game of the season against the Detroit Lions in the 1st game of a double header on Monday Night.

The New York Giants come into this season looking for a return to form after the simply atrocious season that they had last year in which Eli Manning struggled mightily, putting up what was one of his worst seasons as a starter. In order for the Giants to return to form, not only will Eli have to improve his performance, the Giants will once again need to be a force within the NFC East, a division that features the fast-paced, and potent Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Washington Redskins. The Giants also come into this season needing to improve defensively.

The Lions, who will open the season as the home team, are looking to improve from their performance last year and become contenders once again within the NFC North, a division that features the high powered offense of the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. The Lions are going to need to improve both offensively, and defensively if they hope to enter the conversation as true contenders within the NFC North, as they push for a spot in the playoffs this season. The Lions are going to need more on offense than just Calvin Johnson if they hope to see significant improvement.

The line for this game is in favor of the Lions by 5.5 points, while the over/under is set at 47.5.

The Lions should win this game at home, as Eli continued to struggle during the preseason, giving nothing to indicate improvement. Lions win 27-10.
