The New York Giants aren't playing football today. We know, though, that you will be watching. So, here is a little rooting guide to today's action for you.
Games You Need To Care About
(and who you should be rooting for)
Detroit Lions (5-2) at Atlanta Falcons (2-5) -- Hey, this one is on at 9: 30 a.m. (FOX) thanks to the game being held in London. Here is your built-in excuse to tell the missus that you can't go to church on Sunday morning. Root For: The Lions, Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears are all in the Giants' way right now. Gotta root for the Falcons to pull an upset across the pond.
Chicago Bears (3-4) at New England Patriots (5-2) -- To help the Giants, the Bears need to fall off the map. The Lions and Packers are already 5-2 in the NFC North. Root For: It isn't easy to do, but you have to hope the Pats can help the Giants out here
Green Bay Packers (5-2) at New Orleans Saints (2-4) -- It probably helps the Giants more if the Saints fall out of the playoff picture than anything. Root For: Aaron Rodgers and the Pack.
At Least These Are Interesting
(but they make no difference to the Giants)
Why Watch, Or Care?
