Giants Passing Offense vs. Lions Pass Defense

The Lions are hopeful that Chris Houston and rookie Darius Slay are healthy enough to return for week 16. The Giants lead the NFL in turnovers and Detroit should have opportunity to force Eli Manning into some more interceptions. The Giants average just under 230 passing yards per game, while Detroit allows just over 250. If the Lions play with any sort of purpose and desperation, I think they’ll be able to shut down the Giants (who will play without receiver Victor Cruz) and intercept Eli twice. Advantage – Detroit
