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.
Giants QB Eli Manning is known to be mellow and unassuming. Heck, even his nickname is "Easy." But Archie Manning says losing is...
“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.”
The loud thud you just heard should not come as any surprise. The Giants, who lost any realistic hope of making the playoffs two weeks ago against Dallas, sealed their fate with a dismal 37-14 loss to the Chargers.
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.
