The Saints had a bye last week so they are technically one game behind the Giants but I would say the Saints are doing better. Drew Brees has had outstanding season with over 1000 passing yards and 9 touchdowns, 3 of them to Marques Colston.
The Giants and Saints are both very close in rushing yards, passing yards, and overall yards so it should be a very close game also. Last week the Giants crushed the Raiders 44-7 but then again they were playing the Raiders.
I think that the Giants will fall with their first loss on Sunday to the Saints. This game will be a very close game that could possibly end in a late fourth quarter field goal or overtime field goal which would have a final score of 31-28.
Last weekend Peyton Manning threw for over 300 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Colts win against the Titans. Peyton has been having a great season so far and will probably do the same throughout the season but the Colts have a bye this weekend so he won't be playing.
Michael Turner also had a great game with only 97 yards rushed but 3 touchdowns and led the Falcons to a 45-10 win over the 49ers. The Falcons are playing the Bears next week so there defense should shut down Turner and he won't have another good game.
