Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines for November 11th, don't forget to make a wish!

New England can define Giants as contenders or pretenders

This season, the New England Patriots are 8-0 and have been a locomotive on offense. They're led by MVP frontrunner Tom Brady, who has accounted for 24 touchdowns to just two interceptions this season. The Giants come in at 5-4, also leading their division, but the team has played inconsistently throughout the year, especially struggling in the fourth quarter of games. But the Giants, who are no stranger to beating the Patriots when New England is at its best, have won as the underdog before against Bill Belichick and company. And if they can win again on Sunday against New England, it could solidify their status as a playoff threat in the NFC.
