The New York?Giants are hosting the Detroit Lions in?NFL?Football action today. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on FOX. The NFL Odds for the game have the Giants favored to pick up the victory in this one.
It appears many believe Detroit has no shot to win this game today. The?Lions have trailed in the fourth quarter in all nine of their victories. While that’s not something many teams would be able to sustain, it's worked for the Lions to date. They’re also doing it without any real run game, which makes this play event better.
Both teams have 9-4 records here. The Giants defense has been pretty good and they have victories in six of the team’s seven home games to date as well. Historically Detroit has not been a good road team but they have gone 3-3 to date. Eli Manning and Matt Stafford should make for an interesting contest.
Stafford is playing with a glove on his hand after his middle finer on the throwing hand was beat up last week. Detroit absolutely needs Stafford on the field and playing well in order to win here. The Lions have been in every game this season and they need the defense to play well in this one.
If Manning is able to have a huge game and put Detroit in a bad spot, this could be the one game that the Lions really struggle in.
But with a lot of weapons and the second overall seed on the line, Detroit finds a way.
