Detroit Lions vS New York Giants live
After an exhilarating comeback win in Week 1 over the Arizona Cardinals, the Detroit Lions face a test on the road Monday night against the New York Giants (8:30 p.m., ESPN).
The two teams played last December, with the Giants earning a 17-6 victory. It was the first of four straight losses to end the season for the Lions, as they squandered the NFC North division lead and a chance to host a playoff game for the first time since the 1993 season.
So how will the Lions fare this time, with a healthier Matthew Stafford? We asked our experts for their predictions:
Giants 17, Lions 16: This pick is largely dependent on Beckham’s health. He’s a dynamic presence on the field, and the Giants need his energy to succeed. If he doesn’t play or is used primarily as a decoy, it’ll be a long night for New York. If he does, well, the Giants are at home, on Monday night, desperate to avoid 0-2 – a situation that screams win
The Lions need to run the ball effectively to have a chance against a stout Giants defense. Both Abdullah and Riddick are pass-catching threats out of the backfield, and they may be the Lions’ best hope to keep the Giants’ pass rush at bay. Given the defensive makeup of both teams, this should be a low-scoring game. And in a primetime home opener, the Giants have the edge.
