Sunday, 4:15 pm Eastern – FOX
SBG Global Opening Line: Giants – 3 , Total 48.5
Two teams that are almost assuredly headed for the playoffs meet on Sunday as the Arizona Cardinals host the New York Giants. New York is running away with the NFC East while the Cardinals have virtually clinched the NFC West. Both teams come into the game on a roll as the Giants routed Baltimore last week for their fifth straight win while Arizona took out Seattle. The Giants come into the game with the NFL’s best running attack while the Cardinals have the league’s second best passing attack. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Giants on the Road.
The game on Sunday could come down to the New York secondary against the receiving corps of Arizona. The Cardinals are averaging 305.8 passing yards per game. Larry Fitzgerald has 939 yards and Anquan Boldin has 792 yards. New York will try and contain those receivers and put some kind of pressure on quarterback Kurt Warner. “They have a great quarterback and a lot of great guys at the skill positions so it is going to be all hands on deck, and anything that we can possibly do to stay close to their skill positions and know where they are at all times is going to be a plus for us,” New York cornerback Corey Webster said.
