Last week: 13 (+0) Record: 8-6 Net points per drive: 0.42 (8th) DVOA: 13.3% (7th) Weighted DVOA: 10.5% (8th) I went back and forth on Chicago/NY Giants for the final playoff spot. The Giants control their own destiny, but the Bears have very winnable games against Arizona and the team who lost to Arizona (Detroit) to finish their season, while the Giants have to go to Baltimore. If they can win in Baltimore, they should make the playoffs, only needing to win at home against the Eagles week 17 to get in, but that game isn’t easy. It’s a tossup for me, but I’m leading towards Baltimore (and Chicago for the final playoff spot) because the Giants always struggle when they’re expected to win and as road favorites with all the public action on them, that’s the case. Baltimore, meanwhile, is being overlooked after 3 straight losses and once won 16 straight at home. If the Ravens had won last week and the Giants had been dogs and not heavily backed by the public, I’d be all over them, but B...

Former Giant Antonio Pierce says Justin Tuck isn’t the same player

Former New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce told ESPN Radio in New York that he believes Giants defensive end Justin Tuck isn’t the  player that he once was. “I played with Justin Tuck and have a tremendous respect for him.

Bradshaw on track to play on Sunday

Ahmad Bradshaw took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, and New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was encouraged about having the running back for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Antonio Pierce has doubts about Giants' mental toughness

The New York Giants are coming off one of their worst losses in recent memory — a humiliating 34-0 beatdown by the Atlanta Falcons — and have fallen into a three-way tie looking up at the Cowboys and Redskins for first place in the NFC East. Nevertheless, the team still insists it is at its best when their backs against the wall.  At least that's what they publicly say...

Bradshaw, Smith questionable for Giants-Ravens

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith were both listed as questionable after taking part in limited practice Friday in advance of Sunday's game.

Raskin of CBS calls it for Ravens over Giants...

Alex Raskin of CBS Sports.com is a respected analyst who is unbiased toward New York sports teams. Still, I didn't expect Raskin to get on the Ravens bus for this one. This game to me is a pick'em. Both teams match up evenly across the board. Even their injury counts are eerily similar. I would even argue that the Giants have more motivation and need to win than the Ravens...
