Lions and Giants face each other Sunday morning, which marks the first time Detroit will play outside since October 2nd, so it will be an interesting change for them. To add to things, Lions QB Matthew Stafford will be playing with a torn ligament in his throwing hand. The Giants are coming off of a thrilling victory against the rival Cowboys, so they are feeling pretty confident. However, ranking wise the teams match up pretty well, so we think it will be a close game but the Giants will snag the victory.
Lions vs. Giants Score Prediction: Lions 23, Giants 24
If Detroit wants to stay in control of NFC’s number 2 seed, they’re going to have to win on Sunday against the Giants. This is obviously a task that is easier said than done, as the Giants are one of the better potential wild-card teams in the NFL.
Aside from the fact that the Lions will be playing outside for the first time since October 2nd, where they lost to the bears, their quarterback, Matthew Stafford, will be playing in this game with a torn ligament in the middle finger on his throwing hand, which feels a little too risky. However, the team has made a habit of winning close games late this season, so if they can keep the score close they have a chance to steal the victory.
New York is coming off of an exciting win against their rival Cowboys last weekend, so we can expect them to come into this game with high energy. We think the Giants can keep themselves on track and get a win here. However, we also expect a close and exciting contest that comes down to the final few plays.
We are predicting the Giants 24-23 over the Lions.
Tune into the game this Sunday at 1pm ET.
