Week 3 of the NFL kicked off on Thursday night with the Niners politely disposing of the injured Giants 30-12. To get you ready for Sunday's action, 'Intern Mike' Giarraputo has put together his 'Hot Picks.'
New York football was riding high after Week 9 of the NFL season ended. All three franchises, the Bills, the Jets and the Giants were securely playing into the playoff picture, much to the surprise of Big Blue and some Gang Green fans. In Detroit, going into Week 9 was, unfortunately, more of the same for Lions. Head coach Dan Campbell's team was 1-6 and fans were beginning to lose patience. Oh, what a difference a few weeks make.
New York Giants fans are enjoying their team's incredible turnaround. With a 6-2 record coming out of the bye week, Big Blue fans realize that a playoff birth is more than within reach. That is if the Giants can continue to play above expectations and win the games they "should" win, like against the Texans and then the Lions. If head coach Brian Daboll and company continue to hold serve, Thanksgiving Day at 4:30pm could be an epic holiday battle in Dallas. Who would have thought that at the start of the season??
