The 3-6 New York Giants try to snap a four-game losing streak and win for the first time in seven tries this season against a team with a winning record when they host the 5-4 San Francisco 49ers Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Kickoff is 1 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on FOX.

Can the Giants pull off the upset, which would put a huge dent in the 49ers' playoff hopes? Your Big Blue View staff members are split on that idea.

The Giants, who are 4.5-point underdogs, will try to defeat San Francisco without two starting members of a defense that is already ranked last in the NFL in yardage allowed. Linebacker Jacquian Williams (concussion) and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf) are out. The rest of the inactive list for the Giants is as follows: OL Adam Snyder, OL James Brewer, OL Brandon Mosley, DE Kerry Wynn, CB Mike Harris.

The Giants do get leading rusher Rashad Jennings back for the first time since he suffered an MCL sprain Week 5 vs. the Atlanta Falcons.

Still looking for some pre-game reading material? We took a lengthy look today at what has gone wrong with the Giants, and how to fix it. On Saturday, we speculated on whether or not the Giants and Jason Pierre-Paul, a free agent at the end of the season, have a future together.

Our Giants-49ers Hub Page has all of our coverage from throughout the week.

Enjoy the game, folks!
