Next Monday the St. Louis Rams get to play their first Monday Night game in ages. They get to play Spagnuolo's old team, the New York Giants.  The Giants along with the Rams are the two most injured teams in the NFL right now.  The Rams will play without Steven Jackson, Danny Amendola and Ron Bartell on Monday Night Football, with Bradley Fletcher  and Jason Smith iffy as of now.  The Giants are without their two best corners, Terrell Thomas and Prince Amukamara, as well as their MLB, Jonathan Goff.  Also Hakeem Knicks, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck are iffy for the Monday Night game.  Also two more corners, Bruce Johnson and Brian Witherspoon are iffy for the Giants Monday.  For any questions on the Giants ask them on this post.  Members of the SBNation blog for the New York Giants, Big Blue View, will be happy to answer your questions.

Giants Record: 0-1

Their record doesn't say much, only been one game this season.

Last Weeks Result: Loss to the Redskins 28-14

The Giants loss a tough road game to the Redskins.  Their offense never seemed to get into sync, much like the Rams last week.  Rex Grossman, on the other hand, had an absolutely terrific day for the Redskins with over 300 yards passing, two TDs, and most importantly no turnovers.  Rookie Ryan Kerrigan had a very nice INT for a TD.  

 The Giants had a bad game and like the Rams are looking to rebound next week.

The Giants seem to be a team on the downward trend.  They have had really bad luck with injuries this season, but they also just seem to be getting worse and worse since they played in the Super Bowl and shocked the Patroits.  They will have a tough time this year competing in the NFC East with the Eagles, Cowboys and the Redskins.  

Overall the Rams and the Giants seem to be two very evenly matched teams and teams in very similar situations.  Both have similar play at QB, both can run the ball well, and both teams have solid defenses who can rush the QB.  It looks like it will be a great game on Monday Night.
