One week after routing the Saints, the Giants were given a taste of their own medicine. Big Blue was blown out by the Falcons on Sunday, 34-0, the team's first shutout loss since 1996.
To defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, the defeat goes far beyond the box score.
"That's embarrassing not just to us," Kiwanuka said, via Newsday, "but to anybody who's ever worn a Giant decal on their hat or shirt or anything like that."
Head coach Tom Coughlin echoed those thoughts, calling the outcome "devastating."
And it was.
At 8-6, the Giants are now muddled in a three-way tie for first in the NFC East. Technically, they've been overtaken by the white-hot Redskins, and are another loss away from blowing a wildcard spot to the surging Cowboys.
While they still control their own destroy over the final two weeks -- win and they're in -- New York's path to the postseason isn't going to be easy.
In Week 16, they'll hit the road...

If the Giants (8-6) win their final two games, they will be back in the playoffs either as the NFC East champion or a wild card.
While it sounds simple, Coughlin admitted Monday that...

If you’ve followed the career of New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, you would know that he has had to constantly work on his angry issues. He can change from being a grumpy old man to a lovable Grandpa, in a split second. His players have expressed that they enjoy playing for the kinder and gentler Coughlin but as a fan, I love angry Tom.
Below is Coughlin having a mini...

Jay Cutler Juan?
People can say what they want about Eli. The guy has 2 Super Bowl rings with 2 Super Bowl MVP awards. The Giants are starting their late season run again and I can’t imagine many teams in the NFC wanting to see these guys in the playoffs.

New York Giants (8-5) at Atlanta Falcons (11-2)
Every year in the Tom Coughlin era, the Giants have a 2nd half slide. Since he took over in 2004, they are 53-19 in the first 8 games of the season and 29-40 in the second 8 games of the season. This year has been no different as they started 6-2, but thanks to a 2-3 stretch, they are now 8-5, not bad, but not as good as it once looked...
There's nothing the Jacksonville Jaguars can do to prevent the worst season in franchise history.
It's on coach Mike Mularkey's resume now.
It also could lead to his ouster, along with general manager Gene Smith.
The Jaguars (2-12) clinched their spot in history with a 24-3 loss at Miami on Sunday, the team's seventh defeat this season by 16 points or more.

I love Total Wine…good stuff, good prices. Close a little too early if you are running out for late night run, but it’s worth the trip. Looks like Morris was looking for a tasty beverage on his own when I fan recognized him.

"Get the BLEEP off my field!!!" Those words were uttered by QB Matt Ryan in an earlier Atlanta Falcons win this season over the Carolina Panthers in the Georgia Dome. "Matty Ice" would have been well within his rights to utter that same statement again Sunday afternoon after the 34-0 beat-down they handed Eli Manning and the New York Giants. The Giants now...
