Ravens 27, Giants 24
This one was a coin-flip. The Ravens defense is ridiculously banged-up, but the offense can't play as badly as it did last week, can it? Plus the Giants struggle to stop the run. Ray Rice should have a big day.
Giants 33, Ravens 20
The Giants have been way too inconsistent to convince observers as legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but they're still a dangerous threat, especially with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks running through the secondary. A loss Sunday will make the Ravens' regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals even more interesting.
Giants 21, Ravens 17
The Giants will be embarassed after last week and they have a great front four on defense. As for the Ravens, it's hard to win games when the backups to your backups are starting games.
Giants 23, Ravens 20
Eli Manning won't have as much success against the Ravens as his brother did, but the Giants are smarting from that lopsided loss in Atlanta and they are better-equipped to deal with that kind of embarrassment than the Ravens at the moment.
Giants 27, Ravens 20
The offense will perform better, but the Giants are the more desperate team. They will find a way to hand the Ravens their fourth straight loss.
Ravens 24, Giants 21
The Ravens' losing streak will be halted as Ray Rice and the running game are revived and the defense stymies a reeling Eli Manning.
Giants 26, Ravens 24
These are two of the harder teams to figure out in the NFL, but the Giants have the more accomplished and confident quarterback and the healthier defense. They also have been at their best in these types of games.
