The G-Men are a 3-point favorite and will go into the contest with a new offensive coordinator, and without star DE Michael Strahan.

With the way the Giants have been playing, having lost 6 of 7 games, to even still be in the hunt for the postseason is a miracle. If they should lose, it's Green Bay who could be next in line for a playoff berth.
