“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.”
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.
Tom Coughlin felt the Giants were regaining some respectability. That is until they got off to a terrible start and went on to a 37-14 loss to the Chargers on Sunday and were eliminated from the playoff picture.

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.
