Thursday Night Football - Giants at Patriots
NYG (+17) at NE - Yellowzone
Danny Dimes Jones will be in the spotlight tonight as the 2-3 Giants head to Foxborough to take on the undefeated Patriots. Unfortunately for Danny, he will be facing a Patriots team that has a DVOA which is 5th best of all time dating back to 1986. But man, 17 points is a lot. Under normal circumstances, that many points would put a game in the GreenZone. However, the GMen are really banged up. As you can see below, majority of this year’s production will be standing on the sideline tonight.
When healthy, this Giants team is probably slightly below average and the Patriots are the best defense in the league. There is just too much noise in the data to ride the dogs in this one. If you NEED that action tonight, our recommendation would be on the Giants, but we are officially placing this one in the YellowZone as a 0-unit lean.
