MONDAY NIGHT

GIANTS (7-4) at REDSKINS (5-6), 8:30 p.m.

TV: ESPN, Ch. 9. Radio: WFAN (660/101.9).

Giants by 21/2; O/U: 51

It's been a lot more quiet on the blogosphere and airwaves lately after the Giants put together an impressive performance vs. the Packers last week. Funny, I haven't seen the words "swoon," "letdown" or "choke" within a city block of the G-Men this week. The Giants can keep their two-game lead in the NFC East with a win here (Dallas should beat Philly) with four games left. Washington has talent, but I think the young Redskins will be a bit overmatched in this spot. Big Blue is 0-4 ATS in their last four vs. the 'Skins, but they're 4-1 ATS in their last five Monday nighters and 38-16-1 ATS in their last 55 road games overall.

THE PICK: Giants
