The Monday Night contest between the New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts figured to be a tough test for the host team. But after Indy was thrashed to the tune of 51 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the visiting Colts may have gotten a loud wake-up call.

You have to admire Cruz for his willingness to subject himself to the rigors of backfield work, even if it’s just for the sake of gimmickry. But there’s no way the kid should play even a snap at running back.
The 26-year-old is set to become a free agent in a few weeks, and there’s a very good possibility that he’ll sign with another team.
The New York Giants missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, compiling a 7-9 record in 2013. It was only the second losing record under the leadership of Tom Coughlin as Giants head coach, who took command of the team in 2004.
