Tampa Bay Bucs players Carl Nicks and Lawrence Tynes are being treated for MRSA infections
A year ago, the New York Giants failed miserably in their bid to get back to the Super Bowl and defend their title. This year, the Giants just want to stay home — and become the first NFL team to play the Super Bowl in their backyard.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth will miss the upcoming season with a torn Achilles tendon, and the team has signed two-time Super Bowl winner Lawrence Tynes as his replacement.
The Giants signed free-agent kicker Josh Brown to a one-year deal on Wednesday. The signing means that the Lawrence Tynes era in East Rutherford is likely over.
Former Dallas Cowboys placekicker David Buehler has signed with the New York Giants. The team announced the move on Wednesday.
There is an obvious reason why the Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs. It’s consistency.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz, guard Chris Snee and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul have been selected to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl team.
As Manning goes, the Giants go. And lately, Manning hasn’t been going so great.
Where does one begin? The Giants were horrible in every facet of their 34-0 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. How bad was it? The Giants suffered their first regular-season shutout since a 24-0 defeat to Philadelphia on December 1, 1996.
The Giants failed to answer the bell as they were steamrolled by the Falcons 34-0.
One down, three to go – thanks to the type of performance that will get the Giants to where they want to go.
“Obviously it’s not the situation you want to put yourself in, but that’s football,” Manning said. …”It’s all going to come down to, ‘How do you play these next four games?’”
In some ways the rematch with the Washington Redskins turned out to be a reverse of their first meeting. The Giants will be looking hard in the mirror after this one, as they were penalized nine times for 73 yards.
“This is not real complicated. I don’t know what happened in the second half. We certainly didn’t come out and play,” coach Tom Coughlin said.
Eli Manning threw for 249 yards, tossed three touchdowns and — most importantly — didn’t throw an interception.
