3 weeks away from the end of the NFL season and the playoff race is heating up in the NFC. But the Giants who have their division locked up experienced their second defeat on the season to their divsion rival. Oh boy!
The Giants are not the best team in NFL - That title is reserved for the Tennessee Titans and after that - of course the Carolina Panthers who will open a can of whup **** on Monday Night Football.
And of course... they did. Carolina advanced to 10-3 while taking the division lead. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart combined for 4 TDs and over 300 yards against one of the NFL's Top 5 Defenses (Tampa Bay). And before this game they have managed to only give up 1 Rushing TD... AMAZING!
