Giants vs Chargers: GMEN HQ Staff Predictions


As you might have noticed, we took the week off last week from the predictions post due to Thanksgiving. Also, let’s be serious, that was a pretty pathetic Monday night match-up between the Giants and Redskins. We are going to be back for two more weeks, before calling it a season with the Christmas and New Years coming up and the Giants likely being eliminated from playoff contention by then, so good luck to all the competitors over the next two weeks!

Here is a look at the answers to the questions from the Giants vs Cowboys match-up:

1. Over/Under 10.5 carries for Brandon Jacobs? Just under (9)
2. Over/Under 3 touchdowns by Eli? Under (2)
3. Who will lead the Giants in receptions? Andre Brown (4)
4. Over/Under 1.5 sacks for DeMarcus Ware? Under (0)
5. Who will win the turnover battle (Giants, Cowboys or Push)? Push (1 each)
6. Will the GMEN actually win 5 in a row and officially put themselves back in the NFC East division race or will their hopes and dreams of a playoff push be crushed?(Final Score) Nope, their playoff hopes are pretty much shot with this loss bad loss, Cowboys 24, Giants 21.
Bonus Question: Will Tony Romo have a classic Romo melt down in the fourth quarter? Nope, quite the opposite.

Here is a look at the scoreboard:

1 T Kaz –36 + 3 = 39
2 Ricky – 32 + 3 = 35
3 JT – 26 + 1 = 27
4 (T) Me – 23 + 3 = 26
4 (T) Adam – 21 + 5 = 26
6 Cousin Matt – 18 + 1 = 19
7 Josh – 15
8 James F – 13
9 Tom – 10

T Kaz continues his strong season, but Ricky is still right behind him. Adam and myself are right on JT’s heels it what will become a tight race for third. Season long commenter, Cousin Matt, moves up to 6th and with two strong weeks could move into the top 5.

And finally, here are this week’s questions:

1. Over/under .5 TDs for Andre Brown?
2. Who will have more yards, Philip Rivers or Eli Manning?
3. Who will lead the Giants in tackles?
4. Over/Under 3.5 sacks for the Giants defense?
5. Who will lead the Giants in receptions?
6.Will the GMEN continue their push back to .500 with a win in San Diego or officially eliminate themselves from the NFC playoff picture with a loss (Final Score)?
Bonus Question: Will Eli still get booed in San Diego?
