For whatever reason, the New York Giants seem to fall asleep in the month of November and into early December every season. Fortunately, they tend to turn things on at the end of the regular season and during the playoffs. After losing three out of their last four — including a game to the Washington Redskins that has made the NFC East race incredibly tight — Tom Coughlin will need his players to be their usual selves in December.

Antrel Rolle wants to see a little more of the dog from the New York Giants, and not just the defense.
This dog isn't a blitz though.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul agrees with Rolle.
“I'm behind Rolle 100 percent,” Pierre-Paul said via CBSSports.com. “We've been playing like we haven't. I think...

A suburban New York mother who pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution says she plans to write a book that will disclose names.
Following a court appearance Wednesday, Anna Gristina said football fans in particular will be interested in the book. The New York Post reported an NFL executive will be the first name she discloses, possibly in an upcoming interview with TV host psychologist...
The New York Giants know better than to underestimate a Steve Spagnuolo defense, even one that currently ranks at the bottom of the NFL.
When the Saints' defensive coordinator was in New York, the Giants not only won a Super Bowl, but they saw how Spagnuolo could adapt when things went wrong and improve his unit over time.
Giants guard Kevin Boothe says the thing he remembers...
If you want to play in January and February in the NFL, you have to win football games in December. The NFL season doesn’t begin in earnest until the turkey has been scarfed down on Thanksgiving, and with the first week of December just about in the rearview, it’s go time for teams on the bubble.
As is the case this time of the year, the Week 14 slate has a plethora of divisional...
