The Giants have won seven of their last eight games including a big win last week against the Cowboys. Detroit has won five straight games and come into this matchup leading the NFC North.

While the Lions are riding a hot streak, it is difficult to go with Detroit as quarterback Matthew Stafford is batting a hand injury. He will be throwing with a glove in what will likely be cold and wet conditions in East Rutherford.

Heavy likes the Giants to come away with the victory in a low scoring slugfest.
