Each week during the regular season, I took at look at the Giants' media notes for the upcoming opponent.

With one week of footbal to go, here is a look at the Super Bowl media notes for both the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks,

The Broncos were hand down the best offense in the NFL this year, and the Seahawks were hands down the best defense. That should make for a great game Sunday.

If only I had results like last week every week?

I won with the Giants, Seahawks and Cardinals but came up short with the Chiefs. I still have a few weeks to try to at least get back to .500 for the season.

Here are this week?s picks. I?ll be using the point spreads from Yahoo! Sports. Feel free to include your picks for these or any other of the week?s games in the comments section. Good luck!

Was it perfect? No.

But the Giants found a way to win their fourth straight game in a 27-13 contest over the Packers, and unlike some of the recent wins, there were at least a good chunk of positives to take away from Big Blue?s offensive performance.

Victor Cruz was again at the top of his game, catching eight passes for 110 yards. Everyone else was efficient enough in helping the Giants get the win.

Looks like I?m back into my early season trend with a 1-3 showing in Week 10?

The Ravens beat the Bengals; the Cowboys got embarrassed; the Giants won but did not cover; but I got the win with the Panthers over the 49ers.

Kevin Gilbride said on Thursday that he wasn?t sure how Andre Brown would factor into Sunday?s game against the Oakland Raiders.

Well, let?s just say he was factor?a huge factor at that.

Brown rushed a career-high 30 times for a career-high 115 yards in the Giants? 24-20 win over the Raiders.

I can?t seem to shake the 2-2 week, but at least it?s better than 1-3 or 0-4

The Colts mounted a late comeback and the Chiefs took care of the Bills for my two wins. The Seahawks relied on a late comeback and therefore did not cover, and the Ravens were a complete disappointment against the Browns.

Another 2-2 week after the Giants and Saints came through. But the Seahawks and especially the Jets disappointed.

No Giants? pick this week since they?re on a bye, so I will substitute with another game.

All it will take is a few good weeks in a row to get right back to the .500 mark ? or even better. I have to say though, it?s been very difficult to pick games this season, as there have been plenty of surprises.

The Chiefs and Bears came up short for me last week, but I earned wins with the Giants and Packers.

I?m coming up as empty at the Giants are this season. Another 0-4 week for me after I lost with the Dolphins, Broncos, Lions and Giants.

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

The Giants (0-5) are still searching for their first win of the season as they travel to the Windy City Thursday night to take on the Chicago Bears (3-2).

The Giants are 19-27-2 all-time against the Bears but won the last matchup between the two teams, 17-3, on Oct. 3, 2010.

We thought this season couldn?t get any worse for the 0-4 New York Football Giants. But I guess they still found a way to surprise us.

Big Blue dropped to 0-5 Sunday with a 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but the worst thing about this game was the Giants were actually alive for most of the way and totally blew it late.

However, three Eli Manning interceptions in the fourth quarter sealed the Giants? losing fate. He continued to add to his league-lead in interceptions with now 12.

Upset wins by the Browns and Bills coupled with the Redskins covering the spread cast a pall on my Week 4.

But at least I have a better overall winning percentage than the Giants.

Wow, that 19-point Seahawks spread was such a trap!

I did get victories with the Colts and Bears last week, but of course, I was disappointed by the Giants.

After the 0-4 Week 1 start, I?m finally on the board after a solid week.

The Falcons, Seahawks and (unfortunately) the Broncos all won and covered, but I came up short with the Colts.

Week 1 felt like I got punched in the face four straight times. That?s right, an 0-4 week to start the season!

The Patriots should have buried the Bills, the Buccaneers had so many chances against the Jets, the Vikings kept the game close until the end and the Giants gave the game to the Cowboys.

Every NFL team has a challenging schedule. It?s certainly a grind week-in and week-out, and when Sunday finally comes, teams only get one shot at their opponents ? regardless of if the team is ready or not.

It always seems the Giants have a particularly difficult schedule, and this year is no different. Big Blue will play five primetime games, but I guess that just comes with the territory of Super Bowl expectations.

But one scheduling factor that might work in the Giants? favor is having their bye during Week 9 ? the exact middle of the season.

As we enter into Week 16, the Giants are facing their annual season-defining game - the one we'll be referring to for years to come when quantifying 2012.

It could be simply "The Ravens game," going forward if they win. If they lose it could take on a personality of it's own, such as 1978's "The Fumble", "The Music City Meltdown" of 2006 or The Implosion" vs the Eagles in 2010.

With the Ravens tanking right now, the game could go either way. It may be a case of who plays worse rather than who plays better. Baltimore was 9-2 and flying high in the AFC North before losing their last three. QB Joe Flacco has likened them to an "0-14 team" rather than one that is headed toward the playoffs - which they are.

Working on a Monday night schedule is a bit strange for the Giants. Thursday is the Wednesday, Friday is Thursday, etc. Tom Coughlin held his presser yesterday and outlined what the team's plans were: take one game at a time but this next one vs Washington was the "most important game of the season" for his team. He is under no illusions. The Redskins are one of the league's hottest clubs right now:

"We?re excited. In the division, against the Washington Redskins, obviously a team that?s won two games in a row in the division, and feel very good about themselves. Following our game with them, they lost a couple of tough games to Pittsburgh and to Carolina, and they bounced back and scored 69 points in the last two weeks, so obviously they do have the ability to score. They?re 12, they?re offense is seventh overall, 26.8 points per game. They do an outstanding job of that. Defensively, they?re third in the league against the run. They?ve always been a very difficult, sticky, team against the run. Their pressure package has been turned up a little bit in the last couple weeks; that?s how we remember them playing. They?ve forced 22 turnovers. They have 14 interceptions. They?ve done an outstanding job along those lines. As I said, they?re 12, we?re 13. They?re 11th in kickoff coverage. They?re sixth in punt coverage. They have Banks as the outstanding returner. They have a well-rounded football team and we?re anxious to get back out on the field and start to work against this Washington Redskin team."

The Giants defeated the Redskins 27-23 in their first meeting in Week 7. They needed last-minute heroics from QB Eli Manning and WR Victor Cruz to pull out the win. Yesterday, Manning was asked what he needs to do better this time around:

The Giants seemed like the logical pick last week but were instead embarrassed. The Chargers also looked bad against the Buccaneers, while the Seahawks and Rams both covered.

There's been a little bit of a shake-up in the power rankings from last week thanks to wins from the Vikings and the Saints. Here are the rankings for Week 8:

1. Atlanta Falcons 6-0 (Last week, 1): The Falcons had their bye this past week, so they remain in the No. 1 spot. They?ll travel to Philadelphia this Sunday to face the Eagles.

2. New York Giants 5-2 (Last week, 2): Eli Manning fueled yet another fourth quarter comeback victory, but this defense needs to figure itself out if the Giants are going to make another deep playoff run. But even with the two interceptions Sunday, Manning is an elite quarterback.

In addition to my weekly NFC power rankings, I?ll also be picking four games each week against the spread every Thursday: three at large games and of course each week?s Giants game. I?ll keep a running tally of the results, and I?ll be using the point spreads from Yahoo! Sports.

Feel free to include your picks for these or any other of the week?s games in the comments section. Good luck!

The Giants are off today as they transition their preseason training from UAlbany back to the Timex Performance Center where practices resume tomorrow. Practices will not be open to the public.

With the upstate portion of training camp officially over, the Giants are back in New Jersey where they can sleep tight in their own beds for the rest of the year. The mattresses at UAlbany were being blamed for just about everything, from being too small to even being the cause of back injuries.

?We?re big humans. Every bed is small,? TE Martellus Bennett told reporters yesterday. ?You can?t put a damn dinosaur in a twin-sized bed. ... A normal-sized human jumps into a regular-sized bed and it fits perfectly. Large, big humans jump in a regular-sized bed, the bed?s too small. My back doesn't hurt. My back feels great. I have a great back."
