Giants receiver Victor Cruz set a new career high with his 10th touchdown of the season Sunday against the Eagles.Fantasy Spin:Cruz had four catches for 52 yards Sunday, giving him 1,092 yards on 87 catches for the year.

Giants frustrated but hopeful after 9-7 mark

There is an obvious reason why the New York Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs. It's consistency. Tom Coughlin's team lacked it in 2012 despite finishing with the same 9-7 record as a year ago when a late rush took them to their second title in five seasons. This year there was no late rush. Just two bad games against Atlanta...

Giants Injury Report: Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw, Justin Tuck

While New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is probable to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and defensive lineman Justin Tuck are questionable to suit up, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
