New York leads the division again, with a 7-4 record overall. Washington has won two straight games, including a Thanksgiving Day win over the Cowboys. The Redskins have moved to within two games of the Giants for the divisional lead, and just a game back of the wildcard spot in the NFC.

This should be a really good football game. The Giants know that with a win they have a chance to really put some distance between them and the division. Tom Coughlin will have his team ready to play. Do not underestimate Mike Shanahan and the Redskins though. They will be good to go, and are coming off two big wins. In the end, we expect the more veteran group to come away with the win. We are betting the New York Giants by a field goal.

Prediction: New York Giants 27-24

The Giants come into the game as just under a field goal favorite in the game. We look for New York to score points early, and then cruise for a while, only to let Washington get back into the end. After that, the Giants defense will take over, and the quarterback – Eli Manning will guide his team down the field enough for the win. We are betting the New York Giants -2.5.

Pick: New York Giants -2.5
