New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning hurt his left ankle late in the first half against the Washington Redskins. He will not return.
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin refused to address questions about his future.
The Giants lost quarterback Eli Manning (ankle), receivers Rueben Randle (knee), Hakeem Nicks (ankle) and offensive tackle Will Beatty (broken leg) in the regular-season finale.
Both have ample hardware. If winning is still the quintessential QB metric, then Ben Roethlisberger is indeed better than Eli Manning, says Jason Keidel.
Tom Coughlin is seemingly on secure footing, unless the 67-year-old decides to call it quits. His 2014 roster could be overhauled.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz expects to recover from knee surgery in time to take part in offseason workouts in the spring.
“He’s done great things, but he doesn’t do it consistently … What makes someone great in the history, in the annals of an organization or a league? It’s consistency.”
Here’s a rundown of what some of our area sports figures found under the tree this morning; that is, if ole Santa didn’t change his mind.
The actor, best known for his roles in The Usual Suspects, A Bronx Tale, Analyze This and Bullets Over Broadway, had just been on Arthur Avenue doing some Christmas shopping when he gave the WFAN host a ring.
Eli Manning and Antrel Rolle won’t make excuses for the Giants failing to make the playoffs this season. But they do like the fact that the team is playing hard with nothing to play for.
Coming off an embarrassing home shutout against the Seattle Seahawks last week, no one knew what to expect from the New York Giants this week. But New York hung on through a second-half swoon, and Big Blue defeated the Detroit Lions 23-20 in overtime at Ford Field.
Josh Brown’s 45-yard overtime field goal lifted the Giants to a 23-20 win over Detroit. The Lions are now eliminated from postseason contention.
Jim Schwartz started the season on the hot seat and it might be scalding after another collapse. Losing four of five has likely hurt his job security.
The Lions have taken more undisciplined penalties than any other team in football throughout Schwartz’s tenure. Whether it’s a motion or offside penalty before the snap or an unnecessary roughness or a late hit call after the play, Schwartz’s team never seems to learn.
For the third straight week, the Giants are playing an opponent who faces a must-win situation to either remain in playoff contention or while attempting to enhance its postseason seeding.
