Jacobs finished the season with 238 yards rushing and four touchdowns — most among Giants running backs — and two receptions for 13 yards in seven games.
Pete Carroll is never going to talk about it publicly, but he wants his players to get used to their surroundings in this game because he hopes to return in less than two month when the Super Bowl is contested at MetLife Stadium.
“To be honest with you, I don’t care,” the captain told WFAN radio. “Whoever wins, wins. Whoever wins, they deserve to win. To me, to be honest with you, I don’t care who is the better of the two.”
Giants QB Eli Manning is known to be mellow and unassuming. Heck, even his nickname is “Easy.” But Archie Manning says losing is anything but that for his youngest son.
Maybe the New York Football Giants are not used to playing the role of spoiler, but that’s all they have left after an uninspired loss to the San Diego Chargers signaled the death knell for the team’s 2013 playoff chances. Now the visiting Seattle Seahawks come to town, looking to cement the first overall seed in the NFC, and hopefully a return trip to MetLife Stadium in February.
“We’ve gotta finish this year,” Manning said. “No one knows what’s gonna happen next year, who’s gonna be around or not. That’s the game of football. Things can change quickly.”
“You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car,” Al Kelly said. “And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car.”

To say that the New York Giants have had an inconsistent season is to be kind. In fact, at times, New York has performed downright poorly, as penalties and poor execution have plagued the G-men all year. Not surprisingly, these same themes reared their ugly head as Big Blue fell to the San Diego Chargers 37-14 on Sunday. Coupled with wins by the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, the loss dropped New York out of playoff contention.
The conditions in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh and Denver didn’t set back the Eagles, Ravens, Chiefs, Dolphins and Broncos on Sunday.
Tom Coughlin felt the Giants were regaining some respectability. That is until they got off to a terrible start and went on to a 37-14 loss to the Chargers on Sunday and were eliminated from the playoff picture.
The San Diego Chargers ended the Giants’ playoff hopes by defeating New York 37-14 on Sunday.
Eli Manning claims he can’t even remember why Archie Manning told the Chargers not to take his son with the No. 1 pick overall in 2004.
The Giants and San Diego Chargers own identical 5-7 records, although San Diego’s postseason chances are a bit better than those of the Giants. Regardless, this season will be considered a disappointment for both organizations.
It’s a shame there won’t be more on the line when Eli Manning and the Giants take on Philip Rivers and the Chargers 10 years later.
