    LONDON - JANUARY 04: A man walks to work in freezing conditions on January 4, 2010 in London, England. Much of the UK is in the grip of freezing weather with snow and ice disrupting transport across the country as people return to work after the Christmas break. The MET office confirmed that the Christmas period has been the coldest for 25 years with temperatures as low as -17C being recorded in Scotland. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)

    It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and an entire isolated section of the country will come to revere you as a God. An icon. A shaper of young men. They’ll love you so much, they’ll totally look the other way when they find out you’ve been part of a illegal cockfighting ring all these years. Here we go:

    Peter King: Giants 30, Eagles 28. “I'm assuming Mike Vick plays here, and I'm assuming he becomes more of a pocket guy with two broken ribs." I don’t see how that helps keep the score close.

    Ten of Ten ESPN Experts: Giants.

    Yahoo! Users: Giants. (no score)

    Mike Silver: Giants. (no score)

    Pete Prisco (CBS): Giants.

    AJ Daulerio: No pick. I saw him at the bar last night and I don’t think he cares for the Eagles any longer.

    Index Card I Threw Up in the Air With the Name of Each Team on Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Eagles. (Card Record: 4-5)

    The Wife: Eagles.

    Me: Last week, I told you not to be surprised if the Eagles laid another egg (I still picked them anyway, because I’m weak and I go with the crowd). This week, I think we’ll all be surprised if the Eagles DON’T lay an egg. They look very much like a team that’s packed it in for the season. Frankly, I don’t know why they’d even let Mike Vick out there for this game with two broken ribs. If he plays, it’s just another sign to me that things have slipped out of Andy Reid’s control. Giants 36, Eagles 16 (2011 picks: 5-4)
