We've got two Monday Night Football games for this week's NFL TV schedule. The Minnesota Vikings will "host" the New York Giants in Detroit -- yes, you read that right -- and the Baltimore Ravens will head to Houston to play the Texans.
Giants-Vikings, FOX, 6:20 p.m. - This will be an interesting game for a number of reasons. First, it won't be broadcast nationally (see here if you get it) because it was originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon. That means the only people watching this game will be in the New York and Minneapolis as well as DirecTV Sunday Ticket subscribers. I think the Giants win this one, especially with Brett Favre expected to sit. The Giants are 8-4 and needing a win to stay tied with the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. The Giants play the Eagles next week as well.
Ravens-Texans, ESPN, 7:30 p.m. - This one has some Chiefs playoff implications involved. The Chiefs currently hold the No. 3 spot in the playoffs. It looks like that's probably the best they'll do with the Pittsburgh Steelers leading them for the No. 2 spot by two games with three to play. If the Ravens win this game tonight, they will move ahead of the New York Jets into the fifth wildcard spot. That means if the playoffs started today, the Jets would then travel to Kansas City. A Ravens loss means they would be traveling to Kansas City.
