One of the best things about the New York Giants already being in the playoffs is that no Giants fans has to stomach rooting for the Dallas Cowboys when they host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football (8:30 p.m. ET/ESPN).

Tonight, though, you can just watch and enjoy. Will the Lions become the first team other than the Giants to defeat the 12-2 Cowboys this season? Will Detroit move closer to the NFC North title and a possible first-round playoff meeting with the Giants? The Lions can clinch a playoff berth with a victory. Will the Cowboys, with home-field advantage throughout the playoffs already locked up, play hard or coast this evening? Will Tony Romo get to play some?

The Cowboys are a 6.5-point favorite.

Enjoy the game, Giants fans. Use this as your open thread for the evening to discuss the action. And don’t forget to let us know which team you would like to see the Giants face in the first round of the playoffs.
