2012 Week 10 5* NFL Pick: Giants -4

Having done so after the Eagles upset, the Giants will have another chance to bounce back. and to stretch their lead in the NFC East. With the CINCINNATI BENGALS averaging 23.6 points per game, this will be another test for the Giants defense, who continues to allow 20.6 points per game on over 375 yards per game. The good news for the Giants is that the Bengals struggle at Home; 1-4 SU, 0-4-1 ATS, in their last 5 Home games. The good news for the Giants, who are 8-1 SU in their last nine Road games, in outscoring their opponents by over 8 points per game in their last five games, is that the Bengals arrive with the 28th ranked rushing attack. This will force Dalton, 86.7 rating, to the air where the Giants continue to find their luck with key interceptions. Better news for the Giants crew is that the Bengals are powering the 25th ranked defense as well as the 25th ranked passing defense who will be on its heels from a Giants offense powering over 263 passing yards per game; sporting one of the worst second half defenses, the Bengals should find themselves giving this one away when the teams return from halftime.

  1. LOSER>>Giants 13 – BENGALS 31>>Andy Dalton threw four touchdown passes to four different receivers, as the Cincinnati Bengals hammered the New York Giants, 31-13, at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals (4-5) had their way with the reigning Super Bowl champions right from the opening possession, which saw Dalton fire a 56-yard pass to A.J. Green for a quick touchdown. Dalton played mistake-free for the first time this season, hitting 21-of-30 passes for 199 yards to help Cincinnati snap a four-game skid. Eli Manning threw two interceptions and lost a fumble for the NFC East-leading Giants (6-4), who head into their bye week on a two-game losing streak. Manning finished with just 215 yards on 29-of-46 attempts and did not throw a touchdown pass for a third straight game — his longest drought since his 2004 rookie season.
