I agree for the most part. I think that the Panthers are playing slightly better and have better talent on offense, but the Giants have a better defense, along with homefield advantage. Both teams have some key injuries, so that should be a wash. I think the Giants will win a close one.
But I think the Panthers will win next week, and sew up at least one home game and a by week in the playoffs.
I am in the same boat as you.....I would be very surprised if Coughlin does not have these guys really fired up coming into this one.
I normally feel one way or the other, but this week truely is an even game in my book. They have homefield, we are playing better football......even.
