The Detroit Lions are on the verge of missing the playoffs if they don’t get help and beat the New York Giants in their NFL week 16 game. It’s an absolutely must-win scenario for Detroit as we watch Giants vs Lions online free live streaming on Fox by following the links offered below.
Detroit (7-7) can only make the postseason if they win the NFC North and those hopes sustained a major blow on Monday Night Football when the Ravens kicked a 61-yard field with seconds remaining to secure a 18-16 win in a game where field goals where the score of the day. Now the Lions are a game back of Green Bay and Chicago after losing four of five, but they do hold the tie-breaker against the Bears.
While the Lions were cruising atop the NFC North for much of the season, now their playoff hopes look rather bleak. It’s a given they have to win out starting by beating a miserable Giants team today. In addition to that, they have to hope both the Bears and the Packers each lose at least one of their final two football games. It’s not an impossible scenario, but it is a tough one to play out.
Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford continues to struggle and he threw three interceptions against the Ravens in that pivotal divisional game. He wasn’t the only issue as all of his receivers were having trouble holding onto the football, including usually reliable Calvin Johnson who dropped a pair of what would have been big gains and only ended up with six receptions and less than 100 yards in the game. Watch Giants vs Lions online streaming live free on Fox today to see if Stafford can get back on track with Megatron catching touchdowns.
New York (5-9) hit yet another low last week in a season full of nothing but lows. The Seahawks came into their home, where the Super Bowl will be played, and blanked them by a score of 23-0. It was more of the same for the Giants as Eli Manning set a career worst record with five interceptions to aid the Giants in losing their third game in their past four.
At one point in the season the Giants had won four in a row and were close to challenging the Cowboys for the NFC East. Those days are long gone as the Giants are guaranteed a losing season and one would have to think coach Tom Coughlin’s job will be in jeopardy this offseason with neither the offense or defense responding to him or his staff. Adding insult to injury, Victor Cruz might sit today after suffering a concussion last week.
