3. NY Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams in Week 17

It'd be hard to take a recent Super Bowl winning team for granted, but it's not something out of the realm of possibility for the Giants in 2023. The Los Angeles Rams are not the same team that won the Super Bowl just two years ago, and it's not really even close.

They lost Jalen Ramsey to Miami, who knows if Matthew Stafford will be fully healthy at this point in the year and their head coach Sean McVay might be halfway out the door. So, this should be an easy win for the Giants, right?

Not exactly. This Rams matchup is sandwiched between the two Eagles games. Depending on how the season shakes out, those two matchups against Philadelphia will have the Giants attention. And, if there is a healthy Stafford, he'll have one of the best receivers in the league in Cooper Kupp at the ready.

Not to mention, the Rams still employ one of the greatest defensive players ever, Aaron Donald. The Giants are favored to win, and not only should they win the game but they should do so in convicing fashion. However, if they aren't careful, this game will end in disappointing fashion.
