Giants – Colts Tonight On WIBX 950
The New York Giants hope to get back on the winning track tonight as they host the Indianapolis Colts in a Monday Night matchup at MetLife Stadium.
New York is coming off a bye week that followed consecutive losses to NFC East rivals.
Eli Manning hasn't been intercepted in his last three games, but looks to right an offense that is missing some key assets: Victor Cruz will not return this season (knee) and RB Rashad Jennings is not expected to play again tonight as he continues to rehab a sprained MCL.
On the defensive end, the Giants have lost linebacker Jon Beason since their last game (a loss to Dallas 31-21) with a foot injury that required surgery. He's out for the rest of the year, as well.
The Colts roll into New York featuring two familiar faces to Giants fans: WR Hakeem Nicks and RB Ahmad Bradshaw.
However, their cornerstone, of course, is quarterback Andrew Luck who will look to avoid a two game losing streak. While Luck is coming off a 400-yard, three touchdown and two pick performance - Indy was taken behind the woodshed in Pittsburgh last week as the Steelers put up 51 points.
