New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has endured a season that he would like to forget, and the former All-Pro defensive end will miss his third straight contest with an injured shoulder this week. The G-men also placed veteran running back Brandon Jacobs on injured reserve on Wednesday, ending his season. The visiting Seattle Seahawks will be missing starting linebacker K.J. Wright as they seek to cement the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
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.
Victor Cruz went from hero to goat in Week 5 but Giants fans should be patient. The young receiver will be a terrific weapon once he adds consistency to his game.
