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.

Giants Contain Peterson, Top Vikings 23-7 For First Win

Josh Freeman’s debut as a Viking was the boost that the New York Football Giants needed as the G-men snapped their six game losing streak with a 23-7 victory over Minnesota. New York’s initial victory of the 2013 campaign was not a thing of beauty, but the Giants were able to hold Adrian Peterson to a mere 28 yards rushing, requiring Freeman to raise the level of his play to a level that the league had not seen in several years. Freeman was not able to come through; completing only 38 percent of his passes on the evening.
