“When you’re in this spot, when you’re in this position, you’ve got to take advantage of it because you don’t know if you’re going to get another chance,” Manning said. “…It’s tough to make it and you’ve got to win big games.”
With three games left, the Giants (8-5) have a one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington (7-6) and Dallas (7-6). If they win their final three games, they’ll win the division title for a second straight year.
One down, three to go – thanks to the type of performance that will get the Giants to where they want to go.
He could have beaten up his team over their up-and-down play. Rather he’s told the Giants, who hold a one-game lead in the NFC East at 7-5, they have to win their final four games.
“I’m behind Rolle a 100 percent,” Pierre-Paul said. “I think we’re a little soft. We haven’t played our best game this year. As a defense, we have to make a statement.”
“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?’”
Word of the remark made its way to the Giants’ locker room after Monday’s loss, where Chris Snee was none too pleased.
“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.
The New York Giants present a good test case. On Monday, they become the first team to face Griffin a second time.
Eli Manning threw for 249 yards, tossed three touchdowns and — most importantly — didn’t throw an interception.
No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Manning threw for three touchdowns, giving him 200 for his career, and the New York Giants sacked Aaron Rodgers five times Sunday night in a 38-10 rout.
Coming off a bye week and despite a two-game losing streak, the New York Giants have a chance to open a two-game lead in the NFC East with a win over the streaking Green Bay Packers.
Tom Coughlin doesn’t like the line of questioning now? If the Giants lose Sunday, those whispers of a second-half swoon will once again turn into roars. But if they win…
The Giants returned to practice with a point to prove after their bye week.
