When the New York Giants (6-9) and Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) met the first time this season, they were two teams going in opposite directions. They still are, but the roles have been reversed. The Giants are looking to end their campaign on a four-game winning streak, while the Eagles are limping to the finish line, hoping to snap a three-game losing streak.
They have offered hope for 2015, either as starters or quality depth pieces. That’s a lot more than the Giants had coming out of training camp.
Odell Beckham Jr., Andre Williams, Kerry Wynn and Orleans Darkwa each contributed in a big way to the 37-27 road victory over the St. Louis Rams.
It has definitely been a disappointing season for the New York Giants, evidenced by their 5-9 record. If there is a highlight for 2014, it would have to be the overall play of their rookie class.
The Rams (6-8) present a difficult challenge in St. Louis, specifically because they own the NFL’s most aggressive defense.
It’s been a long time since Tom Coughlin had a chance to enjoy the day after a game — a real long time.
This was the way the Giants should have played all season. Had they done so, they still would be in the playoff picture. Instead, they have to settle for the end of a seven-game losing streak.
The New York Giants (4-9) were finally able to shake the dry spell that saw the team drop its last seven contests. After last week’s disappointment against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Big Blue kept the pedal to the metal in the 36-7 win over the hapless Tennessee Titans (2-12).
The Giants had gone so long between wins they had started dreaming of what it might feel like. After beating the woeful Titans, they don’t need to dream anymore.
It’s impossible to predict which Giants will show up Sunday in Seattle. But we know one thing for sure – coach Tom Coughlin is bringing a wounded roster to the West Coast.
The time is now. The Giants (3-4) can’t wait any longer to make a move to get back into the NFC playoff picture. That brings us to tonight’s game against Indianapolis.
Unless the Giants can find at least two wins in the next four games against Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas, their collective gooses will be fricasseed for a third straight season.
The front seven — specifically LBs Jameel McClain, Jon Beason and Jacquian Williams — must hold their ground and fill those rushing lanes in order to contain DeMarco Murray.
The New York Football Giants (3-2) travel down to the City of Brotherly Love to battle the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) in a Sunday Night Football match-up. The Giants started out winless after two weeks, but have since won three games in a row. The Eagles have walked the tightrope more than once this season, yet are still atop the NFC East with a 4-1 record.
The Giants are relatively healthy and appear to be in a good frame of mind heading into Sunday night’s game at Philadelphia (4-1), with a trip to Dallas (4-1) on deck.
