New York Football Giants fans, on the other hand, have somehow convinced themselves in the Trifecta of Miracles - believing that this middling 2016 team is destined to win the Super Bowl, because two past toothless Giants teams did it under the ancient Zen wizard, Tom Coughlin. I've even heard fans claim the Giants will win in the same way as before: by beating mighty New England and Tom Brady. This is ridiculous - magical thinking at its worst.
The Giants will beat Oakland with Derek Carr.
The Raiders are younger than the Pats, who have lost Rob Gronkowski. Clearly, this magical, mirthfully enchanted miracle team will win because
a) it has no rushing game,
b) its offensive line is in tatters and
c) Eli Manning hands out interceptions like Christmas candy.
Obviously, the Giants are Super Bowl bound.
But but BUT... there is a threat to this. Last week, the Manhattan Miracles beat Dallas, the NFC's top team. If the Giants enter the playoffs as favorites, the magic dust will wear off. To win, they must look horrible in the season's final weeks.
Thus, they shall lose today at home to Detroit.
Bet the house.
