Eli Manning And New York Giants Set As Asserted Favorite Over Detroit Lions
October 12th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

Two teams enter Week six of the 2010 NFL Season in a match up coming off of blowout victories.  The Detroit Lions and the New York Giants looked impressive on both sides of the ball this past Sunday, and come into this week confident, despite the Lions tabbing just their first win of the season.

Typically, the first win of the season in Week five is not necessarily something to cheer for, but when the team wins 44-6, it’s a bit more noteworthy.  The Lions will try and build off of their recent success in momentum this week against the Giants, after quarterback Shaun Hill threw for three touchdowns and no interceptions in the runaway victory.

On the other side of the ball, three weeks ago no one was counting the Giants as a contender.  Now, after two-straight weeks with big wins, New York is back in the picture at 3-2 and tied atop the NFC East division.  Quarterback Eli Manning has found a way to throw touchdown passes and making correct decisions.  While he threw two interceptions against the Texans on Sunday, Manning still looked solid.  The defense continues to play well, a week after tabbing nine sacks in the first half against Chicago two weeks ago.

Looking ahead at this one for the Giants on offense, Manning continues to look improved from the beginning of the season, and running back Ahmad Bradshaw continues to be productive with Brandon Jacobs providing a power punch.
For the Lions on defense, they completely shut down a Rams offense last week in the blowout victory over a Rams team that came in executing their game plans in recent weeks.  Detroit allowed more yards then they gained despite the lopsided victory, which could be a cause for concern.  The Giants offense is seemingly firing on most cylinders in the last two weeks and Detroit could have their hands full.

For the Lions on offense, Hill threw three touchdowns passes and Detroit put up 44 points.  Judging by that, there aren’t many negative things to say from last week, but the Lions only have one win on the season and have not looked sharp in the other weeks.  Hill will continue to have to produce, and has done a solid job in place of Matthew Stafford.

Defensively for the Giants, there aren’t too many teams that have played better the last couple of weeks, with the sack-fest against the Bears in week four, and surrendering just 171 yards against the Texans.  If the defense continues to play like they are now, New York will be a very difficult team to beat.
