Things To Look For

For the first time since Week 10 of 2004, the New York Giants’ starting quarterback will not be Eli Manning. And the veteran’s benching doesn’t appear to be going over well with numerous people. The Oakland Raiders find themselves right back in the AFC West title picture and have a chance to get back to the .500 mark with a win here.
