The 2017 Week 2 NFL season schedule will conclude tonight when the Detroit Lions travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The Giants came into the 2017 NFL season with high expectations. However, a loss tonight against the Lions would send the G-men to 0-2 in the early-season, mathematically giving them just a 33% chance of making the postseason. If the Giants offense plays like they did in Week 1, they could be staring a second straight loss in the face.

Stafford, Manning looking to improve

In Week 1 of the 2017 Nfl Season, neither Eli Manning or Matt Stafford had what they would call a game to remember.

While the Lions did roll to a 35-20 victory at home against the Arizona Cardinals, it was the defense who carried Detroit to that victory.

Stafford once again was captain comeback in the 4th quarter in Week 1 as he threw two of his four touchdown passes to rookie Kenny Golladay during the final period. The problem was the Lions lack of offense during the first three-quarters. Nevertheless, Detroit earned the win in the end.

The Giants, on the other hand, stumbled out of the gate last week as well, but unlike Detroit, they never recovered. New York was outgained in the first half by a whopping 265-49, with just two first downs, while falling behind 16-0. They lost the game 19-3.

New York quarterback Eli Manning didn't have his number one option in Dallas in Week 1 and isn’t sure if he will tonight as well.

Odell Beckham has been one of the best wide receivers for the Giants over the past two seasons, and adding pieces like Brandon Marshall to the offense during the offseason were supposed to help the Giants become a force in the NFC East. In Marshall’s debut, he caught one pass from Eli Manning for 10 yards.

How to watch, odds and prediction

Las Vegas oddsmakers have the New York Giants listed as a 3-point favorite in tonight's game against the Detroit Lions, with the over/under point total set at 42. This game is really a tough one to call. Will Odell Beckham play or will he not? Can the Lions or Giants finally get off to a good start?

Will Manning and Stafford look more like their old selves in Week 2? Fans will know all of the answers later tonight.

This game looks like it could be dominated by the defenses and maybe a bit more low scoring than expected.
