Down to one week left in the 2012-13 NFL regular season and New York Giants are playing at Baltimore Ravens in this week 16 crucial must win game for both teams.

The New York Giants need this win in order to make it into the NFL playoffs or they season will come to an end at the hands of Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens have clinched the AFC North division, so they need this win in order to have home field advantage in the NFL playoffs. Its “do or die” time for both teams.

Quick Summary: I recommend betting on Baltimore Ravens at Bovada.

NFL Team Match Up Stats and Key Football Players

New York Giants (8-6) is coming off a major blow out 34-0 by the Atlanta Falcons last week. Where Eli Manning turned over the ball by throwing two interceptions. If the Giants are going to have a fighting chance against the Ravens. Eli Manning . They have to watch those turnovers, Eli Manning need to make sure he gets the ball into the hands of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, and Ahmad Bradshaw will need to put his 4.4 yard average per rush to good use.

Baltimore Ravens (9-5) is also coming off a 34-17 lost last week at the hands of  Denver Broncos. Joe Flacco also made mistakes like throwing interceptions. If the Ravens have any chance of winning this game they will need the offense will need to step it up this game by Joe Flacco getting the ball to Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. While Ray Rice will need to make sure he score touchdowns.

The offense will truly need to play good, don’t let up on the Giants defense, and not rely on the Ravens defense to take control of this game. Although, it looks like Baltimore Ravens defense leader Ray Lewis may be returning to the field against the New York Giants this week. If Ray Lewis can get his defense in order then maybe the offense will step it up as well.

Overall New York Giants has a better offense base on the average rushing and passing yards. However, New York Giants on average allow more passing and while Baltimore Ravens allow more rushing yards. Both teams allow 21 points per game on average. I believe this game will come down to taking advantage of the other teams defense weakness and not turning over the ball on offense. Whichever team’s quarterback take control of his offense and attack the other teams defense weakness early in the game will win this game.
