The storyline
You've got to feel sorry for Lions backup quarterback Shaun Hill. In what will likely be his last start before Matthew Stafford comes back, he gets to face a Giants defense that has racked up 13 sacks in two weeks.

Why you should watch
Nobody backs New York coach Tom Coughlin into a corner. The G-men take care of business in this one and they'll remain well positioned heading toward the halfway pole. There is a good chance they will flirt with six-plus sacks again, too.
