Out of all the games to choose from on Sunday, we are going with this blockbuster of 0-2 teams that have a tendency to shoot themselves in the foot.

Flashback to last week, where the Giants gave the Redskins a second chance at a game winning field goal by jumping offsides.

Think that is bad? Look at Matt Ryan “Matty Ice” two pick 6’s in the second half against the Buccaneers.

Both these teams are playing terrible football, but the Giants should be able to get their first win at home against this Falcons team that is horrible on both sides of the ball.

With a few extra days of rest for the Giants, we believe that Saquon Barkley will be healthier this week.

If he is, he should have a field day against one of the worst defences in the NFL. The Falcons are horrible against dual threat quarterbacks and we expect Daniel Jones to put up huge numbers as long as he is careful with the football.

If the Giants lose this game, they will be looking at a 0-6 start most likely due to the fact that they have the Saints, Cowboys and Rams next up on their schedule.

Defensively, the Giants should be able to control the line of scrimmage and keep this Falcons offense at bay.

Guys, this isn’t the same Falcons offensive team that we’ve seen in the past.

Matty Ice has had quarterback ratings of 20.8 and 36.6 to start off the season. With Julio Jones long gone and an offensive line that is terrible, we expect Matty Ice and the Falcons to melt away against the Giants.

Verdict

We are backing the Giants to cover the spread in this game.
