As revered as New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is in the Big Apple, he is equally disliked in San Diego. This week Manning gets to face the franchise that he slighted when drafted in 2004 and faces the quarterback, Philip Rivers, who was part of the franchise-altering trade on draft day almost a decade ago.
The playoffs are likely a long shot for the Giants, but Eli Manning says his team will play like it has a chance right up until the moment the math says otherwise.
We are giving out three defensive game balls for the first time ever. How can you leave out Justin Tuck with a career-high four sacks or Jon Beason for his 17 tackles or Will Hill for stealing the ball from Pierre Garcon on fourth down at the Giants 49 with 1:19 left?
The Giants are soldiering on with postseason hopes alive in December, having won five of six, while the Washington Redskins are officially going nowhere.
The New York Giants remained in the playoff hunt with a come from behind victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football. Robert Griffin III started hot, but cooled off as Justin Tuck rattled the Redskins quarterback with four sacks. Meanwhile Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards and one touchdown, as New York improved to 5-7 on the season.
CBS announced on Monday that beginning in January 2014, CBS Sports Network will simulcast “Boomer & Carton,” the popular morning show broadcast on CBS RADIO’s WFAN-AM/FM.
Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards, and Justin Tuck had four sacks to help shut down Robert Griffin III in the second half Sunday night, leading the New York Giants to a 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins.
Coach Tom Coughlin announced after practice Friday that backup running back Brandon Jacobs and cornerback Corey Webster also will miss the game.
Washington coach Mike Shanahan already has thrown down the gauntlet in threatening some of his players’ future employment.
The New York Giants collectively bruised their egos last week by losing a critical match-up to Dallas, 24-21, at MetLife Stadium. This week, New York added backup center Jim Cordle to the injury list and will shuffle its offensive line yet again. The Redskins were pummeled by the San Francisco 49ers in prime time, but Washington also has a limited injury list in this battle of also-rans.
He has a patella tendon injury that he sustained Sunday in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Cordle joins fellow offensive linemen Chris Snee and David Baas on injured reserve.
In the metropolitan area, we have teams that did well and not so well over the past year, but all of them have something to smile about.
We New York fans love our teams through thick and thin, and there are actually a few things that give us hope for a better 2014.
While Rex Ryan continues to thwart the ever-growing (and ever-silly) notion that Matt Simms is some kind of answer to the Jets’ quarterback question, we turn now to the Giants and their problems.
