Manning, Giants Look To Take Control Of NFC East With Win Over 49ers

Posted by on 10/9/2015 10:11:33 PM

The New York Giants have fought their way back to .500 following a 0-2 start. Now they have the opportunity to create some separation at the top of their division with a win in primetime this weekend. The Giants could very well be 4-0 heading in to their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football but instead it has been an uphill battle since becoming the first team in NFL history to blow consecutive double-digit fourth-quarter leads. Fortunately for Eli Manning and company the NFC East is still wide open and now they get the opportunity to take over sole possession of top spot when they host the slumping 49ers on Sunday night.

NFL Betting Line: New York -7

The Giants are tied with the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for top spot in the NFC East at 2-2, but the Cowboys will be without Tony Romo heading in to a date with a New England Patriots team that is coming off its bye week while Washington visits the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. Manning and his teammates won’t be concerned about what the other teams though as the focus remains on improving with every start. Manning has thrown for 976 yards and seven touchdowns with only a single interception this season and he should have no problem doing some damage against a 49ers defense that has given up an average of 45.0 point in its two road losses this season. It has certainly helped that Rashad Jennings has sparked New York’s rushing attack to help take some of the pressure off of the passing game and they should give him plenty of touches again this weekend. The Giants defense has also improved in each of the last two games and that trend could very well continue against a San Francisco offense that has looked miserable. The 49ers managed to score just a single touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, only to be shut out last week by the Green Bay Packers. Colin Kaepernick has been held to 727 passing yards and just two touchdowns while throwing five interceptions with three fumbles over the first four games. Part of the problem has been poor offensive line play but it has also been clear that Kaepernick hasn’t played to his potential early on. San Francisco wants to see if Kaepernick can turn things around so look for them to stick with him no matter what happens this season. It would help the 49ers’ offense if Carlos Hyde and the run game can get going the way they did in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings but the line has really struggled in that area as well and there is only so much that Hyde can do on his own. There is a good chance the Giants defense is able to keep Hyde in check again this week and force Kaepernick to try and beat them with his arm. Meanwhile, Manning and the offense is really hitting its stride, and after a couple of collapses early on it looks like the Giants are bound for their third straight win on Sunday night.

Pick: New York-7

Total: 43

The Giants defense has played well so far this season but their offense has been their biggest strength and they should be able to put up some big numbers against this San Francisco defense. That likely means the 49ers will have to play for behind and that should mean throwing the ball more and taking more shots down the field. The New York defense probably won’t completely shut down the San Francisco offense for a full four quarters so look for the 49ers to score just enough to send this game over the total.

Pick: OVER
