Pigskin Predictions

I went 11-2 last week. It was an easy one. This week may be tougher as I seem to be good every other week.

The New York Giants are home against Green Bay on Sunday night. I think I figured out the Giants. They play well against good teams and stink against bad teams. I’ll take them to win.

New York 31, Green Bay 28
