The New York Giants host the Indianapolis Colts tonight on Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 9. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT on ESPN, and will feature the usual crew of Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and Lisa Salters. The Colts are a field goal favorite and looking to rebound from a horrific defensive performance against the Steelers in Week 8. The Giants are coming off two straight division losses, at Philadelphia and at Dallas.
This game is plenty huge for both teams, but for 49ers purposes, we'll be keeping a close eye on the Giants. The Giants are 3-4, and a win would move them into a tie with the 49ers in the wild card race. And with the 49ers and Giants squaring off in two weeks at Met Life Stadium, that game could suddenly be a lot more interesting for both teams.
