Last week it seemed that Princess the Camel may have been a little to confident in picking the Giants to beat the Falcons in their NFC Wildcard playoff game, but she and the Giants pulled it off rather impressively, the Giants beat the Falcons 24 – 2.
Being the Giants fan that she is, Princess hopes to continue her amazing winning streak and once again has chosen the Eli manning and the Giants to win this weeks NFC Divisional playoff game against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
Ever optimistic Princess stated, “…stranger things have happened. Not too long ago the Giants went to Green Bay as a big underdog, played the game in zero degrees, and beat the Packers on their way to beating an 18 and 0 New England Patriots.”, when explaining her choice for picking the currently 9 point underdogs NY Giants over the Packers.
It’s going to be a tough game this week for the Giants, I don’t know if they can really pull it off but as Princess stated, anything can happen. Win or loss the Giants have exceeded expectations this year and I’ll be cheering for them either way.
The Houston Texans will square off against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium while the New York Giants will travel to Lambeau Field to take on the defending champion Green Bay Packers after a big win over the Falcons last week.

I don’t have to tell everyone what a huge win last weeks victory over the Dallas Cowboys was for the NY Giants, it was huge. The win sealed the division title for the G-men and propelled them into the NFL playoffs. And if you remember back to last week, Princess the Camel predicted the outcome correctly!
For those keeping track thus far of Princess’s prognostications for the year, she finished up the regular season with an impressive 11(W)-5(L)record with last weeks win, she is now looking to extend her winning ways into the playoffs.
In the opening round of this years playoffs, the Giants will be facing the Atlanta Falcons at home on Suday in MetLife Stadium. It will be the very first playoff game held in the Giants the new stadium.
So who does Princess the Camel favor in this historic game? The Giants of course!
“…the Giants defense is finally healthy now. Did you see what they did to Romo last week? I felt bad for him and I feel sorry for the Falcons quarterback. Eli to Cruz unstoppable!!! They ought to call it “The Cruz Missile”.”, said Princess, not at all trying to hide her glee over the resurgent Giants.
Do the Giants and Princess have what it take to continue their winning ways (until at least next week)? I think so, the Falcons are a team built to play indoors and while the weather may not a big factor (temps in the mid 40’s with a chance of rain and possible wind), it may come into play at some point and turn the game in favor of the Giants.
Last week’s game between the NY Giants and the NY Jets was a must win for both teams in order to keep their playoff hopes alive (more so for the Giants). In all reality, the game was sloppily played by both but should have been won by the Jets if they would have stuck by their game plan to run the ball more and not pass it over 60 times. In the end however, a win is a win and Princess the Camel picked the winner when the Giants shutdown the Jets last Saturday and silencing the mouth of Head Coach Rex Ryan.
“…Jets coach Ryan said he didn’t come to New York to be anybody’s little brother and he was going to prove that last Saturday. I guess that didn’t work out for him!…” commented Princess
This week it all comes down to the last game of the season for both the Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, the winner of this game takes the NFC East Division crown and marches(more likes limps) into the playoffs, while the loser goes home and watches the playoffs from their easy chairs.
From her sanctuary at Popcorn Park Zoo, in Lacy Township NJ, Princess the Camel has made her final NFL game prediction of the regular season and has chosen the Giants to beat the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night at MetLife Stadium.
“…The Giants and Cowboys, you never know with both of them, good one week bad another, with the Giants it’s bad one quarter and good the next…if the Giants can play a whole game of defense like they did in the 2nd half last week they should be okay.”, Princess said about the game.
I happen to agree but it won’t be easy. It’s tough to beat an NFL team twice in one season, especially a division rival that you played only a couple of weeks earlier.
Like any other game, this one will come down to who makes the fewest mistakes and which QB, Manning or Romo, rallies their team more successfully.
It’s Christmas Eve and week 16 of the NFL season is upon us, with all the holiday happenings swirling around the past few day, I lost track of the days. I thought I had an extra day to get ready for the big NY showdown between the Giants and the Jets today. Luckily Princess the Camel didn’t.
Both the Giants and the Jets are playng for their playoff lives today. If the Giants lose to the Jets today they’re done and might as well go home and spend New Years Day with their families instead of with the Cowboys in MetLife Stadium. If the Jets lose to the Giants, mathematically they’re not finished, they still have a chance of making the playoffs with a lot of help from others, which is unlikely.
So who does Princess like today? Well she is sticking with her favorite and picking the Giants over the Jets today.
“…This is a tough one, anything can happen. It’s almost like one of them is going to win by accident. I know Rex is going to have his defense psyched for the game but somehow I think the Giants defense is going to be better and if Eli can get his game together the Giants should win!…”
Well, we’ll see. Princess (and I) thought that last week the Giants were going to prevail against the Redskins and we know how that turned out.
For those keeping track, Princess’s pick record stands at 9(W) – 6(L) thus far this year.
NFL week 15 is upon us and you know what that means, it’s time for Princess the Camel to make her choice for this weeks game.
Last weeks correct pick of the Giants over the Cowboys made it 3 wins in a row, will this week’s pick extend the winning streak to 4 games ? We’ll have to wait and see.
For this week’s pick, Princess goes back to the well and is taking the NY Giants to beat the Washington Redskins at home in MetLife Stadium. It’s a game that the Giants should we handedly but as we all know the Giants haven’t had too many easy games of late. And even thought the Redskins have been a disappointment this season they are still a dangerous team, What I posted about them when the faced the Jets in week 13 still holds true.
Here’s what Princess had to say about the game:
“…the pressure’s on, they (the Giants) have to win out the remaining 3 games. They’ve got to play their cross-town rivals Rex Ryan and his circus after this week and then the Cowboys again. So barring a let down from last week, which is always possible with the Giants, Eli should have a good game.”
Princess’s records stands at an impressive 9(W)-5(L) thus far this season, if either the Giants or the Jets had an equivalent record at this point of the season they would both be virtually assured playoff spots this season. I think Princess got this weeks pick right and in doing so, both her and the Giants record will for the season will improve.
