The Giants (3-2) travel to San Francisco to play the 4-1 49ers. The Niners are favored by 6 1/2 points. The over/under is 46.

The last time these two met, the Giants took advantage of the Niners' special teams failures and advanced to the Super Bowl on a FG in OT. They also played in early November, with the Niners stopping the Giants int he red zone in final seconds, 27-20.

Before we get into the numbers, let's review a few things that we know. The Giants need to be at critical mass to play their best football. They also play better on the road. They really play their best when no one gives them a chance.

Yes, we are back and ready to stake our ante for the 2012 NFL season. We never play Week One, opting to sit on the sidelines and check the league's temperature before plucking down any capital.

We loved Green Bay (-5 1/2) last night, because everyone fell in love with the Bears after they dominated the sorry Colts in Week One. We knew the Bears' OL still stinks and they proved it once again by leaving Jay Cutler to fend for himself. ?We won't count this as a win, so we will still owe you three for this week.

Some quick advice.....

The Giants and Falcons are both under pressure to win a playoff game. The Giants have not won a playoff game since Super Bowl XLII and have not won a home playoff game since January 14, 2001 when they shut out the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.

The Falcons have not won a playoff game under head coach Mike Smith (0-2). Their last playoff win was January 15, 2005 - a 47-17 thrashing of the St.Louis Rams in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.

When the Giants host the Falcons today, quarterbacks Eli Manning of New York (4,933) and Matt Ryan of Atlanta (4,177) will have the second-most combined passing yards (9,110) by opposing starting quarterbacks in a playoff game. The mark was set last night by New Orleans? Drew Brees (5,476) and Detroit's Matthew Stafford (5,038), who combined for 10,514 yards on 2011.
