The New York Giants are riding a two-game winning streak, and they are looking to win a third consecutive game at home against the Atlanta Falcons.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning returned to Super Bowl form as he threw for 300 yards and four touchdowns with one interception on 28-of-39 passing.
Rookie running back Andre Williams became more involved in the offense as he rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Wide receiver Victor Cruz caught six passes for 108 yards, and the defense shined with four interceptions and two recovered fumbles.
The Giants defense will face a bigger challenge from the Falcons though, as quarterback Matt Ryan is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career. However, he threw two interceptions in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings despite throwing three touchdowns.
Starting wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White will present a challenge for Giants cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
The Falcons also have an explosive weapon in wide receiver Devin Hester, who has scored at least one touchdown in his last two games.
The Giants have an offense that can take advantage of a weak Falcons defense and stick around in a shootout, and they also have momentum and home-field advantage on their side.
Prediction: Giants 28, Falcons 24
