Who would have thought a pick 6 with 6 minutes left in the first quarter could make a team give up like this....

Shurmur mailed this game in. I hope the Giants absolutely implode next year.

I thought I had learned long ago that my second premonition always served me better than my first. Would have been 4-0 on my picks today.

They Viking weren't favorites at New York in 2001/01

It was Giants -2.5.

Well, the Philly fans are letting the so-called "experts" have it.

The underdog masks are out!

Three of us bet that game at Giants +1 and another acquaintance got Minnesota at -1-1/2. That's an odd line and despite I know that site is pretty reliable, I think it's wrong. Unless there was a lot of line movement, but I don't recall that being the case.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.... Scott Peterson? That's the guy who murdered his pregnant wife years ago.

Doug Pederson.... not Scott.
