The biggest game of the weekend is the battle between the undefeated New England Patriots and the 5-4 New York Giants. The Giants are looking to prove that they are legitimate contenders. Beating the Patriots, a team that many have pegged for the Super Bowl would be a good way to earn some respect.

This is the kind of game you just can’t wait for. In the quarterback battle you have two of the best to ever do it. Tom Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history. He has the most Super Bowl appearances and he has four rings to back the argument. Eli Manning has two rings himself. It is a battle between two Super Bowl MVPs. How is this not the Sunday Night Football game?

The 4:25 kickoff will still be a huge stage. It is an opportunity for the Giants to show how good they are at their best. When you consider the situation both teams are in, the history between these teams and the amount of offensive star power in this game it is hard to argue that it is a big game.
