It may not have been pretty. In fact, it was just plain ugly. But the Giants pulled off the most shocking win of the season last week against a Kansas City Chiefs team that keeps disintegrating. Meanwhile, the Cardiac Kids team out of Washington gave the elite Saints a run for their money down in the Bayou but fell apart in the last five minutes. Both teams are riding an emotional roller coaster. The NFC East makes little sense this year. I'm closing my eyes, taking the TD and going with the New York Giants (+7.5).

This year the Giants have had to endure a couple devastating injuries to their most talented players, coaching controversy and blowout losses. And yet somehow they've pulled off two shocking upsets (blowing up survivor pools across the nation) where their two opponents were favored by almost two touchdowns before the game. Pure insanity. Now, I'm not expecting them to win this one against a Washington squad that is desperate for a win to stay relevant in the NFC. But this season who the hell knows what will happen?

The one bright spot during an otherwise dismal season has been the play of rookie TE Evan Engram. Now, Engram holds a special place in my heart after I quickly scooped him up off waivers when both Brandon Marshall and OBJ went down. Anyone who has this kid in fantasy knows that he's paid dividends all season. Before his streak was snapped last week, Engram had a touchdown in a stunning five consecutive games on top of his 452 yards this season. Expect this kid to bounce back while Josh Norman has his hands full with WR Sterling Shepherd.

Speaking of Norman, you've got to ask yourself has this elite corner spent too much time filming (admittedly hilarious) commercials and too little time in the film room. I'm just playing. Norman is still elite and if Washington is to have a prayer at snagging the sixth seed, it'll be on the back of Norman. To be honest, I hope Norman takes his talents elsewhere eventually. No disrespect to fans in the nation's capital. I love the passion. But there's no love for team owner Dan Snyder.

This game will come down to whether the Giants' secondary can slow down Kirk Cousins and Washington's aerial attack. Washington ranks seventh in passing yards per game but just seventeenth in rushing yards. If Washington can establish the run game early, watch out for some play action bombs from Cousins. The Giants will also be hard pressed to get any sort of running game going, ranking a haggard 26th overall thus far. It looks like there's a little light at the end of the tunnel with the recent play of RB Orleans Darkwa.

It seems like the Giants have received a lot of prime time attention this season and for all the wrong reasons. Thankfully, this will be their last prime time game of the year. Let's see if they make it count and get some grub on Thanksgiving.
