Did Sunday cost the New York Giants the playoffs?
With the Dallas Cowboys winning Saturday, the G-Men had to keep pace. Fortunately the Giants were playing a weak 4-9 Redskin team…or not. The Giants only put up 10 and the Skins threw up 23. Even with the Giants having the leading passer (Eli Manning, 257 yards) and the leading rusher (Ahmad Bradshaw, 58 yards); they still tanked. Maybe they gave everything they had to the Cowboys last week, but they definitely weren’t ready to play this Sunday.So with the New York Giants coming out flat, did Sunday cost the New York Giants the playoffs?What’s going on with Philadelphia?
Although Denver might be more tantalizing, no team is more of a question mark than the Eagles. With all of the offseason moves adding to a playoff roster, Philly was in for Indy. However they ended up being 4-8 and dead to rights. Now they are clinging to the hope of a playoff birth (although needing a miracle) and facing the Dallas Cowboys next week in Jerryland. B...

The stars are aligning for Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning to be able to dictate terms to the Colts to ensure their individual and mutual interests are addressed due to the likelihood that they'll be represented by the same agency:
The plan between Peyton and Andrew, if there is one, remains unknown. Peyton could try to force his way out of Indianapolis, for example by refusing...
The Colts will have to win their last two games the same way they tried to win their first 14 -- without Peyton Manning.
The health of Peyton Manning's neck is improving, but the Colts star won't participate in team practices the rest of the season.
Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow -- now, who got a vote of confidence and who didn't? "Tim Tebow's not going anywhere," John Elway told the Associated Press. "I mean, he's going to be a Bronco and we're going to do everything we can and hopefully he's that guy."
It is a Jets fan’s worst nightmare, and should be: Jets 14, Giants 10, two minutes left, Eli Manning with the ball, and the season, and very possibly two seasons, and very possibly his coach’s job, in his hands.
Super Bowl XLII all over again. This one for...
Over the last decade or so, an effective way to spot a lazy editor or writer has been if they use the phrase “Peyton’s Place” when referring to Peyton Manning. It’s lazy because it was a bad metaphor. See, the original Peyton Place was a novel, movie, then TV show (all of them spectacularly popular) that portrayed the countless wild and sordid goings-on in a seemingly normal...
Peyton Manning confirmed a report by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports that he threw to Colts running backs and receivers last week after practice and that he still wants to play this year.
In Week 15, the Washington Redskins visited the New York Giants and appeared to be the team playing for a playoff spot. The defense flustered Giants quarterback Eli Manning all day, intercepting him three times as his receivers made a number of key drops. The offense also made enough plays ...
Face it, Jets fans. If this comes down to a battle of quarterbacks, Eli Manning is going to outduel Mark Sanchez. He has had a remarkable season, carrying the Giants to dramatic victories with crunch-time heroics while masking the team’s weaknesses.
Reggie Wayne was set to join NFL receiving royalty with another 1,000 yard season. That all changed with Manning's injury:
The string of 1,000-yard seasons, though, is in serious jeopardy. The absence of Peyton Manning and resulting revolving door and inconsistency at quarterback too often has rendered the passing game impotent.
Overall, the Colts have run the fewest offensive...
