Eli Manning told Mike Francesa: “We feel if we take care of our business — if we win these games, we’ll be in a good spot to make the playoffs.”
Andre Brown set career highs with 30 carries and 115 yards while running for the go-ahead 1-yard TD late in the third quarter — and he wasn’t activated until this past week.
After an 0-6 start to the season, the Giants (3-6) are suddenly only 1½ games behind Dallas and Philadelphia in the division, and only one back in the loss column.
It certainly was not pretty, but at this point in the season, style points do not matter.

The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.
This grand unveiling Jason Pierre-Paul has planned for Sunday could turn out to be a big fizzle. But let’s take the optimistic route because, hey, the 2-6 Giants need all the good vibes that come their way.
Fresh off their bye week, the New York Giants play host to the visiting Oakland Raiders at the Meadowlands this week. New York, winners of two straight games, was off this past Sunday, but lost ground in the division standings, since all of the other NFC East teams won their games.
