Giants @ Browns Preview


Well what is there left to say about the game tonight? The Giants are 4-0. The Browns are 1-3. There is no reason that the New York Giants should lose this game tonight considering they are the most well-rounded team in the NFL and they are playing a team whose only win this year came against a team that is currently 0-6.

The Giants have been slaughtering their opponents and tonight should be no different. The predictions everywhere are calling for a Giant win in the form of a blowout by double digits and I am not sure if that is a good thing or not, but that is what should happen. Everyone seems to believe that Giants will 5-0 after tonight except for Chris Mortensen, but then again this is the same guy who reported that Eli Manning would miss weeks due to a shoulder injury after opening night last season. So take what “Mort” says with a grain of salt.

I don’t think I need to go into the specifics of how the Giants can win and how the Browns can win. It’s pretty simple. If the Giants play the way they have been playing, many people will be turning the channel to the Dodgers/Phillies game before the end of the first half. But if the Giants take the night off or for some reason cough the ball up on turnovers then the game will be a lot tighter than expected.

Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News reported on his blog today that the Giants magic number to win the division is 11. For those of you who don’t know what the magic number means, it means any combination of Giants win and Redskins/Cowboys (second place teams) that equals 11 will clinch the NFC East for the Giants.

So, the Giants have a chance to drop that number down to 10 tonight and take a very commanding lead of the NFC East. And with the 49ers waiting on the Giants schedule, the G-Men have a chance to distance themselves greatly from Washington and Dallas.

Tonight the Giants prove themselves for the second time this season on national TV and further prove that they are far and away the best team in the NFL.

Giants 38, Browns 13
