Giants at Broncos on Thanksgiving Night

Quote:
The New York Giants will spend Thanksgiving in Denver and face the Broncos Nov. 26 at Invesco Field at Mile High.

It's an 8:30 p.m. nationally televised game (on the NFL Network) and the Giants first Thanksgiving Day game since 1992.

The Giants are 7-6 playing on Thanksgiving.

Earlier that day, the Packers will play at Detroit and the Raiders will play at Dallas. The remainder of the regular-season schedule will be announced in April

THANK ****ING GOD

Finally a football game worth watching on Thanksgiving.

Too bad we'll probably all have to PAY to watch it though.

The Giants will be on TV in New York. It'll probably be on MY9.

Yeah, but it seems the Raiders have been there a few times recently.

Either way, my point is they can do better than Lions & Raiders.

He doesn't mean the match-up between the Lions and Raiders, he means the NFL can do better than including those two individual teams.

I don't mind the Lions being on national TV. It's tradition and it's only for 3 hours. They won't be on national TV any other times and eventually they will be better...maybe. I say stick with Detroit and Dallas early in the day. I am surprised they didn't go with the Chargers vs. Cowboys though, that's a much better matchup. This means that before the schedule has even been released, the Raiders have TWO national appearances. Awesome.

Anyway, as for the G-Men, it'll be interesting. Last year I was not able to see any of the Thanksgiving games since I was at my aunt's, so I'll need to work out something this year. I'm interested to see who we close out Giants Stadium against.

The Jets-Pats game was televised last year. They have to televise all games in the local market, calm down Giants fans.

What I want to know is... how in the hell do the Raiders get prime time games EVERY YEAR?! I know they have a big following around the country, but come on.

Anyways, decent match-up for Thanksgiving night. Should be a good game for the G-Men.

Go Niners.

You just answered your own question, no use complaining about it. If the networks are going to get better ratings by showing a certain team, can you really blame for taking advantage of it?

The only reason I don't want the Giants playing on Thanksgiving is the negative effect that it may have on the team due to a short week of rest followed by a long one. But whatever, Giants on Thanksgiving, cool.

The Giants should absolutely slaughter that team. Even in Denver.

I smell a homer. Without Burress, the Giants are an average at best football team. Everyone said it was Umenyiora, Strahan or Shockey, but Burress is the key to that team.

With the attention he draws from the opponent's defense, it opens up the running game, and that's how it's so effective. Why do you think Philadelphia beat them in the playoffs? They're not paying attention to Hixon, Smith and the rest of the average wideouts and instead stack 8 in the box to shut down Jacobs and Ward.

Burress coming back is possible, but he still has legal issues he has to deal with, although he won't go to jail I'm sure because celebrities always get off easy. Still, the Giants may not want the trouble he brings. Better hope they make a huge push for Edwards or Boldin.

Regardless, you say they should "kill" Denver, why? The Broncos problem was their defense, which they addressed pretty well in the off-season. Bringing in a guy like Brian Dawkins will do wonders for their defense. With the amount of leadership he brings it'll raise everybody's game every single week. They'll play harder because Dawkins won't let them not give 100% every single play. They also brought in Reid, Hill, Goodman and Fields to help them out.

Now someone's going to say to me 'Well, the Giants brought in Canty, Bernard and Boley, you're not accounting for that', when in reality, DL isn't the Giants big need. Boley is a decent player, but is he really the answer at LB?

I see the teams as pretty even. The Giants are not a top 5 football team, but keep looking back at the Super Bowl a year ago and telling yourself that they are.
