Welcome to Monday Night Football! Tonight's game features Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts against Eli Manning and the New York Giants. I am going to go bold tonight with my prediction based on both my gut and one historical fact centered around Eli Manning.

FACT: Eli Manning is a beast coming off a Bye Week. Six years running.

YEAR OPP. SCORE CMP ATT YARDS TD INT
2008 Seattle Seahawks 44-6 (W) 19 25 267 2 0
2009 Atlanta Falcons 34-31 (W) 25 39 384 3 1
2010 Seattle Seahawks 41-7 (W) 21 32 290 3 0
2011 Miami Dolphins 20-17 (W) 31 45 349 2 0
2012 Green Bay Packers 38-10 (W) 16 30 249 3 0
2013 Oakland Raiders 24-20 (W) 12 22 140 1 1

Look at that? How can I not go with Eli Manning and the Giants tonight?! I know, that Oakland game last year is a blip. It's just a blip people! Go Giants!

I might be hyping myself up due to another fact that has me currently in a three-way tie for first place in my Yahoo Pick'em league, which means a win by the underdog Giants tonight could net me some major financial windfalls and I'm licking my chops! Prediction: Giants 31, Colts 27.

Only 11% of Yahoo users picked the Giants to win tonight, do any of you give them a chance?
