Giants Saints Game Sunday?

Looking for good chow place to watch the Giants Saints game Sunday.
Any ideas welcome.
Not positive, but Grevey's at the intersection of 50 and Gallows in Merrifield area of Fairfax, I think used to be a Giants bar.
i believe washingtonian.com has a list of sports bars that cater to particular teams...there are a few Giants bars in there I think. but they arent organized by good food or anything.
Also....Thirsty Bernie's in arlington has decent food...nothing to write home about, but more interesting than most places.
Grevey's is a Bills bar and the food isnt that great.
Bailey's in Ballston is crowded and crazy on sundays, but there will be plenty of TVs with the game on. The food is mediocre at best.
That's gonna be a sick game though!
If theoneontheleft is right, there's a hard times in Clarendon, but I don't remember enough screens to show all games there.
I would call Bungalow Billiards in Shirlington, or Mr. Days in Clarendon.
I'm now out of tune with much in DC or even Arlington (despite my recs) for this sort of thing over the past few years. I'd imagine you could call or go by a few places and they'd set you up if they have the right package. Stetson's, Big Hunt, those few places on Cap Hill by Tune Inn (there's the one that features soccer, but maybe on a Sun afternoon?).
Hell - if nothing else, ESPN - eat somewhere else before/after?
Okay, and actually - http://www.dccityblog.com/best-place-...

The places on the Hill by the Tune Inn won't be good for the Giants / Saints game. The Hawk & Dove is a Packer bar. The Pour House (which does feature soccer on other days) is packed to the gills with Steelers fans. And I wouldn't call either of those a chow spot (and that's generous). Cap Lounge a bit further up the street should probably have it on.
Best place might be the Ugly Mug. Or on the other side of the Hill -- H Street NE -- is the Argonaut, which has terrific pub food and does show NFL games.
The big Giants bar in town (allegedly) is the 51st State in the West End. (but I have no idea what their food is like)
