The Giants have won each of the past three head-to-head games with the Patriots, including two last-minute wins in Super Bowls. New England this season is averaging 34.5 points per games, which leads the NFL and is three games in front of the second place New York Jets.

Last week New York defeated Tampa Bay 32-18 after losing the prior week to New Orleans 52-49. The Giants lead Philadelphia by a half game in the NFC East. Eli Manning has been up and down thus far for the Giants. The talented quarterback has thrown for 213 yards or less in four of his past six games.

Tom Brady, the New England signal caller has five games of 300 yards or more passing this season and one of 299 yards. Last week the Patriots beat Washington 27-10. Brady on the season has 22 touchdown passes and just 2 interceptions. He leads the NFL with a passer rating of 113.5.

On defense, the Patriots are giving up less than 18 points per game and are tied for second in the league with St. Louis with 27 quarterback sacks.

Odell Beckham Jr. has 7 catches or more in six of his nine New York starts this season and has two straight games of over 100 yards receiving.

The Giants defense is dead last in sacks and total yards given up while they are next to last in yards passing allowed.
