If the Giants didn't draft a QB in the first round, what would they draft for? Right now they'd pick #2 overall after the Browns and ahead of the 49ers due to the Niners getting the head to head win a few weeks ago.
In sunnier news, what about the Vikings? They are 10-2 and have tiebreakers over the Rams, Saints, and Falcons should it come to that and can add another if they beat the Panthers this coming Sunday. Even before Sam Bradford went down, this was unexpected. The schedule looked tough and people figured if they could be 10-6 or 9-7 in the wildcard race, it would be enough. To be the #1 seed in the NFC right now is off the charts.
The remaining slate is At Panthers, Bengals, At Packers, Bears. My big hope is the Packers will be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs by week 16 so they'll consider sitting down Aaron Rodgers for the season by the time the Vikes get to Lambeau. The Packers are 6-6 and will be 7-6 most likely after playing the Browns in Cleveland this coming Sunday. The following Sunday sees them go to Carolina. A 7-7 record may have them on the outside looking in by week 15. The Packers are a different team with Rodgers at the helm and they seem to have the Vikes' number at Lambeau Field. Given the Vikings' schedule, they should win both home games to be at least 12-4. The two road games are winnable, so I'm hopeful for 13-3 or even 14-2. The big thing is staying #1 in the NFC and not having to go to Philly if it comes to that.
You forgot to mention 'home field advantage in the Super Bowl'
