Giants stomp Packers 38-10. NFL Week 12 highlights

In our opinion, if the NY Giants come to play, they’re the best team in the NFL. After losing two straight, their bye obviously came at the right time as Big Blue ran the Green Bay Packers right out of Giants Stadium 38-10. After not throwing a touchdown pass in three games, Eli Manning bounced back with an 18-30, 24, 3-0 night. Andre Brown and Ahmad Bradshaw split the rushing load with 64 and 58 yards respectively, each with a score. The G-Men had Aaron Rodgers running for his life eventually sacking five official times but hitting him hard countless others.

At the betting window, it was a pretty mixed bag across the board. Including the Thursday Thanksgiving triple header, favorites were 8-7 with the under winning the day at 9-6. The away teams held a 9-6 straight advantage with Cleveland and Jacksonville getting the money as straight up home dogs. SP3 will have a complete NFL Week 12 recap on Tuesday.

Tonight on Monday night football, Carolina travels to Philadelphia to face the Eagles. The Panthers are currently three-point road favorites with the over/under steady at 41 flat. Not much to chose from here as Carolina has lost seven of eight and Philly six straight and both teams are playing with lame duck coaches. Carolina is 3-0 this year as a road dog with their last win coming at Washington. The Eagles are giving up 31.8 ppg and 0-4 since firing DC during the bye. NFC East dogs are 13-3 against the points, 8-2 at home.
