Experts share their picks for the Patriots Week 12 matchup against the New York Giants, presented by SERVPRO.

Mike Reiss, ESPN:

Pick: Patriots 24, Giants 17

Rhamondre Stevenson, Ezekiel Elliott and the running game will provide a much-needed spark coming off the bye, and the defense should have opportunities to create turnovers against Tommy DeVito and Co.

Ali Bhanpuri, NFL.com: Patriots 18, Giants 13

Brooke Cersosimo, NFL.com: Giants 17, Patriots 16

Dan Parr, NFL.com: Patriots 19, Giants 15

Gennaro Filice, NFL.com: Giants 16, Patriots 13

Tom Blair, NFL.com: Giants 17, Patriots 14

Why Ali is taking the Patriots: There is a legitimate chance the Patriots are in possession of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft after this weekend. If you thought the noise around who's playing QB for New England was loud now, just imagine the rancor that scenario would generate. Now, the Giants have their own set of questions under center, the most immediate being how Tommy DeVito will fare against a Bill Belichick-led defense notorious for befuddling rookie passers (24-6 as Pats HC). Despite all of New England's shortcomings -- and the team has many -- I'll take the G.O.A.T. coach over the kid QB eight times out of 10.

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:

Pick: Patriots 21, Giants 17

These are two of the bottom teams in the league, both with quarterback issues. Tommy DeVito did play well for the Giants last week, but Bill Belichick has had great success against rookie quarterbacks. The Patriots quarterback situation isn't good either, but I think the Patriots will find a way to win this one.

Mike Florio: Patriots 14, Giants 10

Chris Simms: Giants 16, Patriots 13

Paul Perillo, Patriots.com:

Pick: Patriots 19, Giants 16

Lots of field goals for two struggling offenses.

Mike Dussault, Patriots.com:

Pick: Giants 17, Patriots 13

The Giants are coming off a big win over Washington, while New England isn't sure who their starting quarterback will be yet. There's a lot of uncertainty facing the Patriots are they return from the bye week, enough to give the Giants the prediction edge.

Evan Lazar, Patriots.com:

Pick: Giants 16, Patriots 10

The Patriots should find a way to win this game against a third-string rookie quarterback. But with a messy quarterback situation of their own and a team on the brink of letting go of the rope at 2-8, I don't see how you can pick them to win a game right now. I see a similar game as we saw in Germany, where the Patriots have opportunities but can't make enough winning plays in the end.
