Now, several weekends a year, the family packs up and heads to the airport on Friday, flies to Cleveland — usually with a layover in Dallas, Houston or Atlanta and a trip through customs — and spends Friday night and Saturday seeing the sights. They’ll go to an Indians or Cavs game, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the zoo or other attractions and find new restaurants and return to favorites. Sunday is game day, with everyone wearing Browns jerseys and hats, and the flight home is Monday.

Their offense continues to sputter. The Giants haven’t been able to run the ball, whether it has been Rashad Jennings, Paul Perkins or someone else in the backfield.
They’re 31st in the NFL in rushing offense. That might be manageable if the passing game was clicking. But it isn’t. Manning has struggled in recent weeks and the Giants’ offense has evolved into a Beckham-or-bust proposition. They will fall short against a good Lions team if they can’t string together first downs and move the ball consistently.

Both the Giants and Lions are used to playing tight games. They’ve had 12 games combined decided by three points or less. The Giants are 4-1 and the Lions are 5-2. The deciding factor in this one is that the Giants are at home, have the better defense and Stafford is dealing with a hand injury that could affect how he throws the football on a rainy December afternoon. The Giants improve to 5-1 in games decided by three points or less.
