The 2011 NFL Monday Night Football game between the St. Louis Rams and New York Giants is set for September 19 (8:30 PM EST) at MetLife Stadium. ESPN will provide TV coverage for this contest. This article offers predictions for the 2011 MNF game between the Rams and Giants.

Monday’s game features two winless teams in the St. Louis Rams and New York Giants. Both teams suffered a lopsided defeat last weekend. Since 2001, the non-division foes have met five times with New York enjoying a 4-1 advantage. In their last meeting (2008), the Giants crushed the Rams 41-13.

St. Louis and New York come into this game having been hit hard by the injury bug. Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson are among key Rams’ players questionable for Monday Night’s game. The injury list for the Giants is even more glaring. These injuries come at the absolutely worst time for both teams as one more loss could mean the end of one team’s playoff hope.

Both the Rams and Giants are facing an equal amount of pressure. This contest may be the best opportunity for either team to notch its first victory of the season. As both teams were comprehensively beaten in their openers, there isn’t much we could draw from those lopsided defeats. What we can really draw from are their performances in the pre-season. The Rams, with their undefeated record, certainly had looked better than the Giants.

When two struggling teams meet, the home team typically has the edge. New York is hoping the home crowd will give the team a big morale boost. The Giants also has an experienced coach in Tom Coughlin, who definitely knows a thing or two on how to get his team ready for a big game. It will be a close contest, but New York should escape with a narrow victory.

My prediction – The New York Giants defeat the St. Louis Rams 27-23; Eli Manning throws 2 TDs.
