Palladino: Ugly Giants Keep Season Alive Against Raiders

Giants Wilson & Rogers Go To IR, Kuhn & Brown Activated

A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. 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.

New York Giants: 5 Players That Need To Improve In Second Half Of Season

The New York Football Giants had their worst start since 1976, and the team did not get its first win until Week 7 of the regular season. After beating the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, the G-men went down to Philadelphia and defeated the Eagles 15-7 to complete their first half at 2-6. With eight games remaining, including three with division rivals, Dallas and Washington, New York still has eyes on a division title. Here are five players who will need to be productive in order for the Giants to compete.

Believe It Or Not, NFC East Within Reach For 2-6 Giants

Two wins do not make a playoff contender, unless you’re in the NFC East. Despite opening the season with six straight losses, the Giants remarkably are still in the playoff hunt heading into their bye week.

Oh, the possibilities of what might have been had the Giants received similar efforts from the get-go. Instead, they head into the bye at 2-6, thinking about how they might scrape their way to .500.

Giants Head To Philadelphia Amidst More Changes Along Offensive Line

The New York Football Giants seek to extend their winning streak to a modest two games as the team faces the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fluid offensive line situation changed again this week, after starting center David Baas was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Eagles enter the contest relatively healthy, although last week’s starting quarterback, Nick Foles, is likely out with a concussion.

Wilson Is Out, Jacobs To Start As Giants Face Off Against Bears

Injuries have been mounting for the 0-5 New York Giants; it seems that each game a different starter goes down with a serious injury. This week starting running back David Wilson has been ruled out with a neck injury. For the Bears, starting cornerback Charles Tillman may miss Thursday’s game with a knee injury, and linebacker Lance Briggs is nursing injuries to his foot and hip. Both Tillman and Briggs will be game-time decisions for the Bears.
