What Has Eli Done For You Lately - NFL 2015 TNF 3

Eli Manning and the New York Giants are on the ropes but it truly feels like Ali's rope-a-dope strategy gone wrong. The Giants should be 2-0 going into tonight's matchup against the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins should have the same record, instead of being 1-1. At Giants (-3.5; 44), something's got to give when two NFC East stalworths that have fallen on hard times vie for a division championship.

The NFC East division will be contested until the final week of the season, partly and mainly due to the injury suffered by Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo and the Philadelphia Eagles being in a somber slumber.

The Cowboys will patch holes. The Eagles will rise. For the Redskins to keep pace, they have to maintain their conservative, ball control approach.

The Giants, on the other hand, have to put it all on the line and open up the offense even more, relying on their star Quarterback Eli Manning.

The Defensive edge goes to the Redskins, though they have faced two lesser offenses, both games at Home. This is a tough pick no matter how you slice it.

The Giants won both meetings last season, which keeps them as a Home favorite, where the Redskins can lose by 7 points or the Giants lose by 1 point.

So, I go with Giants (Under).  Pick wisely, come back for Sunday's picks and enjoy this playlist.
