The New York Giants are in the midst of a modest one-game win streak and — considering the team's history of second half season swoons — they'll take it.
Better yet, if it's because of Osi Umenyiora's new good luck charm — Miss Universe Leila Lopes — we'll take it.
The Giants defensive end was seen "hiding out" in the back of Manhattan's Empire steakhouse with the world-class beauty on Monday during a party to say farewell to her title.
Lopes, the first Angolan to ever win the title, was seen with the Giants two-time Pro-Bowler the night after Osi's team pounded the Green Bay Packers at MetLife Stadium.
Insiders are hoping she sticks around New York until after the playoffs "to keep his good luck coming," reports Page Six of the New York Post.
Giants fans might just want the 25-year-old Lopes to hang around anyway.

With the rest of the football world watching their every movement: the New York Giants did what they did best on Sunday night.
On the heels of a two-game losing skid, many people believed the Giants simply didn’t have that mojo they had a year ago when they won the super bowl. In a wide open NFC East, some thought the Giants wouldn’t even make the playoffs this...
Justin Tuck has a great deal of respect for Robert Griffin III, but thinks the Redskins offense is doomed if Griffin goes down.
As the NFL moves closer to college style offenses, some of the attributes call for quarterbacks to be a little more than just passers.
That also means they are exposed to big hits and could get knocked out of a game in a blink of an eye.
Chasing both a Pro Bowl dream and a new contract at season's end, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is orchestrating another fine season.
Cruz, New York's leading receiver, has 63 catches, 779 yards and eight touchdowns, and the Giants are in first place in the NFC East. Indeed, life is good ... on and off the field.
In fact, Cruz recently corralled a football dropped from...
When Mathias Kiwanuka signed a contract extension with the New York Giants earlier this year, he understood his job was to be a wild card in the defense.
Kiwanuka is somewhat of a rarity in the NFL. A two-position player, the seven-year veteran is listed on the roster as a linebacker, but he plays as much on the defensive line, his natural position.
This past week in the Giants...
The New York Giants have one of the better offenses in the NFL. They score more than 27 points per game, which is the fifth-highest total in the league. On Monday night, the Washington Redskins will have their hands full trying to stop Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Ahmad Bradshaw and the rest of New York’s offensive weapons. If by some miracle the Redskins can keep them off the board...
After a two game skid that had people thinking that maybe the New York Giants were vulnerable, they came out Sunday night and put in a performance to speak to the contrary by beating the Green Bay Packers 38-10. It seems that everytime the Giants are perceived to be on the ropes they rise to the occasion and make a statement that says, "everyone put the shovels down , don'...
The New York Giants had a ton of trouble with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III when they faced him over a month ago, and they will have to step up to the challenge again on Monday night. It doesn’t sound like Justin Tuck is looking forward to it very much.
“Until I exit stage right, it seems like (Griffin is) going to be a fixture in my dreams and nightmares...
Let the trash talking begin between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins who will play against each other on Monday night football.
This is a big game for both teams as the Giants will look to extend their lead as the first place team in the NFC East division and the Redskins will try to extend their push to the playoffs.
Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told the media...
Here we go again. It hasn’t even been a full week since jeweler offered to refund money on sales to customers if Auburn was shutout by Alabama, and now we have a car salesman in Washington, DC offering a similar to deal to patrons if the Washington Redskins are able to shutout the New York [...]
The Miami Dolphins signed former Giants cornerback Michael Coe. Coe spent the previous three seasons with the New York Giants where he played in 21 games with one start. He was originally selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the fifth round of the NFL draft. Coe played two seasons at Arkansas before transferring to Alabama State to play for his father, Charles.
