Sunday Night Football open thread: Browns at Giants

Can Colt McCoy lead the Giants to a win against his former team?

Who would have expected a Colt McCoy revenge game being in the spotlight on Sunday Night Football?

With Daniel Jones injured, the former Browns quarterback will get another start. The Giants have won two of three games with McCoy at quarterback: his relief appearance against the Bengals and an upset against the Seahawks. However, the credit for those wins goes to the defense. Prior to last week’s loss to the Cardinals, New York had allowed 20 or fewer points during their four game win streak. Even their 26-7 loss to Arizona wasn’t a blowout—the team has surrendered over 30 points just twice this season, an admirable feat for a fairly lackluster team. With the NFC East struggling as a whole, the Giants could sneak into the playoffs.

Standing in their way, however, is a red-hot team despite a recent loss. The Browns and Ravens duked it out on Monday Night Football for arguably the best game of the season. The 47-42 affair was an exciting spectacle, although Cleveland ended up on the losing side. The Browns are on the cusp of a playoff berth, and a win tonight would help make up for a loss to Baltimore. The Ravens, Browns, and Dolphins each have nine wins entering tonight in a hotly contested Wild Card battle.
