Giants vs. Steelers preview:
Talk about a streaky season for the Giants. New York started out the season 2-0 and then dropped three straight games. Never fear for the Giants though, as they have racked up six straight wins and are now well-positioned in the NFC for a solid playoff spot.
Where to being with the Steelers? After a promising 4-1 start to the season that looked like the Steelers were Super Bowl contenders, Pittsburgh lost four in a row. With a favorable schedule the rest of the way, the Steelers still have a chance to make the playoffs. After an ugly win against the Browns two weeks ago, Pittsburgh dominated a depleted Indianapolis Colts team on Thanksgiving Day. Now comes the Steelers toughest test of the season, not named the New England Patriots or Dallas Cowboys.
The Giants and Steelers have played 76 times in history. The Giants have dominated the matchup and has the series lead by a 15-game margin (44-29-3).
Giants vs. Steelers prediction:
It's interesting to see a 6-5 team be a touchdown favorite against an 8-3 team. The Steelers do have on of the most potent offenses in the NFL, but the Giants can strike back as well.
This one will come down to which defense can make some key stops against two incredible wide receivers in Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr.
