The New York Giants have collapsed toward the end of the 2012 NFL regular season, leaving them barely alive in the battle for the final wild card spot in this season’ NFC Playoffs. New York needs a win against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17, as well as losses by the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.
The Cowboys face the Washington Redskins for the NFC East. The Vikings will battle it out with the Green Bay Packers. The Bears will take on the Detroit Lions. While it is certainly possible that all three of them could lose on Sunday, it is not all that likely.
Of course, the results of the those three teams mean nothing if the Giants cannot get past the Eagles. It may sound like an easy game but, considering how poorly New York has played over the past couple of weeks, a win is far from a lock, even against lowly Philadelphia in Week 17.
If you listen to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, he is not sure that the defending Super Bowl champs even belong in the...

Another week, another blowout loss for the suddenly sinking G-Men, who've went from first to finished in the span of two games.
The postseason is now a pipe-dream for New York, and a furious Jason Pierre-Paul believes his team doesn't belong in the tournament.
“Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?” Pierre-Paul said, via the Daily News. “I don’t think so...
SAME OLD SHENANIGANS
Despite being advised by Justin Tuck to stop celebrating with backflips, David Wilson went with his usual antics against the Ravens.
Are the Giants are trying to miss the playoffs?
Here are my Power Rankings and a quick note about each team.
1) San Francisco - Don't panic, Seattle doesn't lose at home.
2) Texans - They are solid on both sides of the ball.
3) Patriots - Suspect defense keep them from the top spot.
4) Denver - On the rise, are they a Super Bowl sleeper?
5) Falcons - They need...
The New York Giants won't go down without a fight despite throwing away control of their playoff destiny with lopsided losses the past two weeks.
Coach Tom Coughlin was perplexed Monday when asked about the embarrassing losses to Atlanta and Baltimore that have left the defending Super Bowl champions needing a ton of help to get back to the postseason.
New York (8-7) has to...
What a difference a year has made for the New York Giants. Much like this time last year, the Giants entered the final week of the season looking to secure a postseason berth, which they did with a win over the Cowboys at home. This year, the Giants have a similar chance to get into the postseason, albeit as a wild card, if they win their season finale against the Eagles and...
With the Giants on the brink of seeing their playoff hopes completely vanish -– New York is still mathematically alive but will need a lot of help to get in -- defensive end Osi Umenyiora said he's reflected a bit over his career with the NFL team that drafted him, and has come to accept that there is a "very real possibility" that this is his final season as a Giant...
After this years disappointing performance the New York Giants are going to need to make some wholesale changes, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Many complain about the secondary but one of the main problems is that their defensive line has gotten old and bad, very fast and that’s the strength of the defense. Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com suggests that the team could...
The New York Giants could still be a playoff team even after a 33-14 setback to the Baltimore Ravens.
It's a complex (and unlikely) scenario, but one thing was settled at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The only resemblance this Giants team has to last season's championship squad or the one in 2007 that also won a Super Bowl is the "NY" on the side of their helmets...
The New York Football Giants look like they once again forgot that nothing is handed to you, especially in the NFL! This time it looks to be too late, needing a win against Philly, a Cowboy loss to Wash, Green Bay to beat Minnesota, and the Bears to fall to a Lions team that cannot get out of it’s own way, just to make the playoffs. It was just last season where they were...
The finals have come and gone in most leagues. Hopefully many of you are celebrating championships. Inevitably, most aren’t. After looking at what happened in Week 16, we’ve put together the Fantasy Football Lumps of Coal Team.
This team could very well have been a legitimate starting team in the championships…and completely fell on its face. Without further delay, let’s...
Eli Manning might want to change his nickname from "Easy" to "Woozy" after the consecutive beatdowns the New York Giants quarterback has gone through over the past two weeks.
Last Sunday's 34-0 blowout by the Atlanta Falcons was compounded by yesterday's ugly 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens which left the Giants signal caller looking for more than...

The Giants played as badly as they did in Atlanta a week ago, to the point where I wondered why they bothered to make the trip. A forfeit would have been more dignified and honest.
It's hard to fathom how Eli Manning became one of the worst quarterbacks in the league over the last 11 weeks and an absolute killer in fantasy (h/t Scott Pianowski). And the defense is even...
