New York Giants
New England and Baltimore are developing an impressive postseason rivalry.
Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry. The 49ers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Silver & Black just need something to forget that beating they just took from the St. Louis Rams. The Sunday game at the Coliseum promises to be quite interesting.
Right now, the Oakland Raiders are 1-10, and if the season ended today, they’d get the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. There’s not a clear-cut stud or even a lot of depth at the top of the draft next year, so the Silver & Black need to be very smart about their next draft.
The 49ers went on the road for the second straight week, and earned their second straight win. It took a last stand by the defense, but it was important for San Francisco to win this game, and they did due to the play of their defense and running game.
The 49ers and Giants have to game plan for some missing players this week, but none that they can’t overcome. There will be several game time decisions, but no big name is really in danger of sitting this one out, other than Patrick Willis.
The 49ers go on the road for the second straight week, but this time the opponent should not be quite as difficult. If they can play as well as they did a week ago the 49ers will beat the Giants this week and keep their winning streak intact.
The New York Giants have played with a ton of questions this season, but after losing their best wide receiver, things look rough heading into their game with the Dallas Cowboys.
Next up for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: the Arizona Cardinals, the team currently leading the tough NFC West with a 4-1 record this season. The Cardinals aren’t a dominating team, however, and if the Silver & Black can play well for a second week in a row for once, they may have a shot at the upset at the Coliseum.
