Giants Miss Playoffs, Coughlin Likely To Return In 2014

The New York Giants missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, compiling a 7-9 record in 2013.

Giants Lose Manning, Beat Redskins 20-6 In Season Finale

The New York Giants limped past the lifeless Washington Redskins 20-6 in the rainy Meadowlands. New York lost quarterback Eli Manning to an ankle injury late in the first half, but rode two Jerrel Jernigan touchdowns to the victory. The loss likely ends the Mike Shanahan-era in Washington.

Chargers Knock Giants Out Of Playoff Contention

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.
