The second game on tap today is the Giants on the road to take on the 49ers and it should be pretty obvious who we'll all be pulling for. No one wants to see the Giants run continue and the 49ers are actually a very good team to end it. The Giants got a soft opening round game with the dome dwelling Falcons coming north. In the second round they had a tough opponent, but the Packers uncharacteristically turned the ball over at a mind boggling rate. Certainly you can give some of the credit for that to the Giants D, but part of it was a fluke too.
The Giants offense also carved up a very poor Packers D. Today against the Niners, they could see both of those advantages neutralized. The 49ers have one of the best defenses in the NFL and never turn the ball over. They led the NFL in turnover differential.
San Fran has already beaten the Giants this season back in week 10 at Candlestick Park 27-20.
The Niners are slight favorites at -1.5.
