Two wins do not make a playoff contender, unless you’re in the NFC East. Despite opening the season with six straight losses, the Giants remarkably are still in the playoff hunt heading into their bye week.
It’s been a humbling season for the Giants and punter Steve Weatherford. But somehow, after starting 0-6, they’re still in the playoff conversation.
For all of Calvin Johnson’s 329 yards, the Detroit Lions needed another foot or so. Matthew Stafford provided it, capping a stunning comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The New York Football Giants had been a perfect 4-0 in Arlington, TX, where the Dallas Cowboys moved in 2009. But New York struggled mightily offensively,turning the ball over three times in the first six minutes of the game, en route to a sloppy 36-31 loss to the Cowboys in prime time on Sunday night.
New York started the game with turnovers on their first three drives, all in the first 6½ minutes. There were two INTs by Eli Manning, including his first pass. That’s not how you want to start a season.
