Our Free NFL Pick: With the Giants’ loss last Sunday, we can pretty much officially write them off now. Their loss to the 49ers doesn’t end their season chances for the playoffs or anything – since those ended quite some time ago – but it does make it abundantly clear just where the team stands whenever they do not have Odell Beckham Jr. playing. Even if the Chiefs have been staggering a bit ever since their loss to the Steelers, there’s no way imaginable that they’re losing to the Giants who gave the 49ers their first win of the season. Take the Chiefs to cover.
