Other than home filed advantage, there
isn't anything else going on in the Falcons favor this week and
with a 1-4 record there is less and less cheering at Turner
Field to interrupt the Giants communication. Veteran tackles
Todd Weiner and Wayne Gandy are out of this game, Gandy
for the season, Weiner for at least two weeks, after a knee
surgery, and will be replaced by rookie Renardo Foster and
second-year Tyson Clabo. Another rookie, Justin Blalock, will
cover the left guard duties for his first start with the team.
Even when Michael Vick was playing things always went wrong for
the Falcons, Vick getting sacked seven times in the last matchup
with the Giants in Atlanta. The Giants may not have much going
on, but they have the sack-master Osi Umenyiora, who will make
the game miserable for Joey Harrington (or Byron Leftwich).
On the Giants side we have Eli Manning
in excellent shape, RB Brandon Jacobs is back with the team
after an injury and, of course, veteran WR Plaxico Burress has
shown an amazing performance, despite playing with sprained
right ankle. Statistically, the defenses match, but the Giants
offense is leading almost twofold on average points scored with
24.6, compared to Atlanta's 13.8, throw in a bunch of rookies
and you got yourself a bog point spread. You can take advantage
of the current -4.5 spread at
