NFL Bargain Bets: Week 5
October 3rd 2008
by Old Man Winner

N.Y. Giants (-7) vs Seattle Seahawks    

I love this game. The Giants are healthy and have been playing very confident, smart football. Their turnovers are low, they have a great offensive line that can both run and pass block, and their defensive front seven are brutal. They should be able to run the ball fairly well against a very average defense and get a couple of nice plays down the field. However, its not this side of the ball that excites me.

Seattle has been able to stay in games with their running game, which has been a big shock considering a very average back in Julius Jones and coming off of several years where their passing game has led the charge. Give Holmgren some credit. He has done well adjusting to a ton of injuries, most noticeably at the WR position. They are projecting to get both Bobby Engram and Deion Branch back this week and that has given some prognosticators hope. I believe it is just the opposite. I think trying to install previously injured players (who are aging significantly) into a line-up mid season often requires several games to get their timing back.

Both teams have had two weeks to scheme, but I think the Giants defensive line owns this game and thus the Giants own this game. I foresee them winning by at least two touchdowns.
