NFL PLAYOFFS Check out the game recaps and current headlines.
Feb 20 Michael Thomas has already left his stamp on the National Football League both on and off the field. And he's just getting started. An undrafted rookie out of Stanford University in 2012, Thomas got his start in the National Football League with the San Francisco 49ers.
Feb 19 There
are many inadequacies, front to back, within the Giants defense and, if that
defense moves forward without Landon Collins, there will be another gaping hole
Feb 16 Should the Giants pass on a QB again at the top of 1st round? Shaun O'Hara says yes, but not for reason you think. But O'Hara isn't suggesting the Giants pass on Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray for offensive tackle Jonah Williams or another top blocking prospect.
Feb 14 Giants
offensive line during Eli Manning's career: Here is a closer look at the revolving
door of offensive linemen, including all draft picks since Manning arrived in
2004 (which includes only two first-round picks and one Pro Bowler) and the notable
free agents added since the Giants' Old Guard needed replacing, beginning in 2011.
Feb 12 Kareem Martin eager to see defense in Year 2 under Bettcher. Kareem Martin played in James Bettcher's defensive system in Arizona in each of his first three NFL seasons. The Cardinals' defense ranked fifth, second and sixth in yards allowed over those three years from 2015 to 2017.
Feb 11 Here's why NY Giants could open 2019 NFL season against Super Bowl champion Patriots. We already know the Super Bowl LIII champion New England Patriots and the New York Giants will play each other in the regular season, and now here's something to consider: could Big Blue open the 2019 campaign in Foxborough as New England raises the banner to celebrate its sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy?
Feb 9 How can Giants' Saquon Barkley improve after winning Rookie of the Year? Pass protection? Insticts?
Feb 8 When the Giants' chief decision-makers are asked about quarterback Kyler Murray for the first time, they almost surely will be complimentary. But will their words be merely tall tales?
Feb 7 With his New York Giants looking to turn their 5-11 2018 season into a playoff spot in 2019, general manager Dave Gettleman has to avoid making the mistakes he made in his inaugural season on the job.
Feb 6 Eli Manning now has another great Super Bowl Sunday memory to add the bank. Manning and his wife Abby welcomed son Charles "Charlie" Elisha Manning just after midnight on Sunday morning, as first reported by Newsday. He is the couple's fourth child and Charlie will grow up with three older sisters.
Feb 5 Just as it took multiple years of personnel mismanagement to send the New York Giants to the bottom of the NFC East, it's going to take multiple years for the tandem of general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur to fix.
Feb 4 Not long after the confetti stopped falling on the Patriots, Saquon Barkley took to Twitter to post a simple message. "One day ...," he wrote and added the emoji of two hands clasped together in prayer. Do his Giants have a prayer to get to Super Bowl LIV in Miami?
Feb 3 Saquon
Barkley named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. What the Giants speculated
was true before the 2018 NFL Draft and what they believe was validated during
this past season was made official Saturday night: Saquon Barkley was the best.
Feb 2 Over the next several weeks, the Giants are expected to make some decisions regarding some of their biggest cap eaters for 2019. In determining whom to cut and whom to retain, general manager Dave Gettleman is certain to review everything, including injury history and production.
Feb 1 Giants quarterback Eli Manning already has as many Super Bowl rings as his older brother Peyton Manning, but one of his former teammates thinks it might be time for Eli to follow his older brother's path, if he wants to finally get bragging rights.
Jan 31 Saquon Barkley's popularity continues to soar. Another example: the Giants' sensational running back is the Pepsi Rookie of the Year, a source confirmed.
Jan 30 Connor Barwin's first season with the Giants will be his only season with the Giants. He had little impact in 2018, which is why he will be officially released in the coming days.
Jan 27 Eli Manning is not expected to go anywhere. It is believed Gettleman and Shurmur are convinced the 38-year-old can function as a more-than-competent NFL quarterback.
Manning TD passes: Here are all the Giants who have caught at least 1.
Jan 25 The Giants quietly have added 12 players to their roster -- some of whom were on the practice squad during the regular season -- since putting a bow on a disappointing 5-11 season.
Saquon Barkley was in a familiar situation during the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge - at least for one game. He was great, without a lot of help from his teammates.
Jan 22 Eli Manning's agent speaks: I think he'll return to Giants. Where the Giants go at quarterback is the decision of the offseason for a team that finished 5-11 in 2018 and again failed to make the playoffs. Manning started all 16 games and compiled a passer rating of 92.4, completing a career-high 66 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Jan 21 The controversial outcome of the NFC Championship Game sent two Michael Thomases to the Pro Bowl. For Giants safety Michael Thomas, who was selected as a first alternate to the Rams' Cory Littleton in the one roster spot per conference reserved for a special teams standout, it will be the fulfillment of a career-long individual goal.
Jan 18 By the time next season begins, the Giants have to either replace Eli Manning, or know exactly how they're going to do it. They've known this was coming for years, but in each of the last two drafts, they still failed to select a replacement for Manning despite a plethora of franchise quarterbacks taken in each of the last two first rounds.
Jan 16 General manager Dave Gettleman and the Giants still have plenty of work to do, if this team plans on returning to the playoffs for the second time in the past three years in 2019, but last year's rookie class showed plenty of potential. While Gettleman's moves in free agency last offseason were a mixed bag, at best, the Giants significantly increased the talent pool of the roster during NFL Draft weekend last April.
Jan 12 Much like his team, Evan Engram played his best football after the bye week. Engram caught 22 passes for 320 yards and touchdown in the final quarter of the season. In the first three, he had 23 receptions for 257 and two scores. Engram couldn't deny his satisfaction with the way the 5-11 season ended for him individually.
Early in the spring drills, Will Hernandez was installed as the starting left guard. He might well stay in that position for the next decade. Hernandez is a rugged run blocker and sturdy pass protector who has started every game and has improved significantly from early in the season to now.
Jan 11 Special Report - The basic facts are that out of 16 games on their schedule, the Giants had eight games against 2018 Playoff teams. Given such a poor record, one might intuit that New York would have gotten "smoked" in the great majority of these games, but that just wasn't the case, in general: Here is a brief summary of their games against eventual 2018 Playoffs teams, rating each game for how competitive it was.
Before the Giants give up on quarterback Eli Manning, they might want to take another stab at improving his offensive line. At least that's how one of Manning's longtime NFC East rivals, former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, sees it.
The NFL announced that linebacker Olivier Vernon has been named to the NFC Pro Bowl team. He will replace Chicago's Khalil Mack, who is unable to participate due to injury. Vernon will join two Giants teammates - rookie running back Saquon Barkley and kicker Aldrick Rosas - at the game.
Jan 9 Although the Giants did make progress in some areas, there is still a lot more work to be done by general manager Dave Gettleman and the rest of the front office if they are to continue building on the foundation they laid in 2018.
Jan 8 Ever since the Giants 2018 season ended, there have been any number of opinions put forth regarding what went wrong. Let's peel back some more layers on some of the most common theories behind the Giants 2018 struggles to see if those arguments actually hold water.
If Giants general manager Dave Gettleman wants to maneuver his way up or down in the 2019 draft, it looks as if he will have plenty of options to use as bargaining chips at his disposal.
Jan 6 If Eli Manning's Giants run is over, he leaves an unforgettable mark. Nothing lasts forever, and he will be fine no matter how this turns out. But the Giants will never see the likes of him again.
Dave Gettleman can talk all he wants about defense as root of Giants' deficiencies, but it's a false narrative. How can a GM trade talent in the name of a belated rebuild and then blame the unit that suffered from its reduction in talent for his team's losing, while excusing the offense of blame?
conditions may Eli Manning accept in order to return with Giants? Giants may
want Manning back, but on certain terms.
Jan 4 What's next for Eli Manning and the Giants? "We believe in Eli. As we move forward here I think the plans here will reveal themselves," head coach Pat Shurmur said. "He can still play. He can still make the throws. He can still lead the offense."
Gettleman knows how to make 35 minutes fly by. The dominant storyline was
the future of Eli Manning and the quarterback position for the Giants, but unpacking
Gettleman's 35 minutes of wisecracks and namedrops revealed some interesting perspective
on a 5-11 season.
Jan 2 Eli
Manning could become the first Giant to celebrate a Sweet 16. No player in
the franchise's 94-season history of the Giants has worn the uniform for 16 seasons.
If Manning is back as the starting quarterback in 2019, it will be his 16th season
in a career that includes being the No. 1 NFL pick in the draft and winning two
Super Bowl MVPs.
Jan 1 The Eli Manning-Giants marriage sure doesn't look like it's headed for divorce. "Everyone thinks I'm nuts, but I've seen the good in Eli," head coach Pat Shurmur said. "I believe everyone around him has to do their job as well. I believe in Eli. I believe in him."
Landon Collins wouldn't fight Giants' franchise tag. Landon Collins wants to return to the Giants, the team that moved up in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft to take him out of Alabama then made him a fixture in their defensive backfield.Dec 31 Giants lose to the Cowboys 36-35

(5-10) vs Cowboys (9-6) Game Preview
Dec 30 The Cowboys are locked into the No. 4 slot in the NFC postseason tournament and will play a home playoff game during wild-card weekend. Win or lose, it does not matter much to the Cowboys. That does not mean the Giants, at least their longest-tenured player, are looking to give the Cowboys a free pass.
If there is one position at which the Giants can feel good about their depth from top to bottom going into the offseason, it's tight end. Evan Engram shared his thoughts on his own roller-coaster season, the Giants-Cowboys rivalry and what his offseason will be like.
Dec 29 Odell
Beckham Jr.'s season has ended in frustration again, but not without the Giants'
star wide receiver promising to make 2019 his best. Beckham was asked Friday if
he wants Eli Manning to return as quarterback.
Dec 28 Sterling Shepard has been the Giants' No. 1 wide receiver by default for the past few weeks, and it increasingly looks like he will serve in that capacity again if Odell Beckham Jr. misses his fourth straight game to end the season Sunday against Dallas.
Giants' big free agent Nate Solder: Portrayal as answer to all problems was a 'set up' | 'No superhuman people'. Solder is one of two players on the Giants who has played every snap on their side of the ball this season. The other is his parter on the left side of the offensive line, rookie guard Will Hernandez.
Dec 27 Despite the Giants (5-10) being out of postseason contention and the Cowboys (9-6) locked into the fourth seed as the NFC East champions, Pat Shurmur and Jason Garrett are playing to win Sunday's meeting at MetLife Stadium.
This is not the first time around for Eli Manning, but it remains an uncomfortable conversation, one he was forced to engage in at this time last year. That was the first time, Manning acknowledged, he ever felt he might not return to quarterback the Giants.
Eli Manning isn't sure he will be a Giants quarterback in 2019 but he isn't going to act like he won't be. "I don't know," Manning said when asked if he expects to be with the Giants next season. "I didn't know last year either, so we'll figure it out. Whenever you get to Year 15, these things come up."
Dec 26 Is the soon-to-be (Jan. 3) 38-year-old quarterback the main reason this franchise has regressed and will finish with a losing record for the fifth time in the last six years? Has Eli Manning been worse than his offensive line in that span? Has Manning been worse than the Giants defense that takes the field when a lead is there to be protected?
Dec 25 For many Giants fans (you know who you are), the thought of Eli Manning starting in 2019 is as popular as finding coal in your Christmas stocking. What happens with Manning and the Giants' starting quarterback position next season is up for debate - even though it shouldn't be based on the way he has performed this season, which is good enough to stay on for another year.
Giants should think twice before dumping Evan Engram. Just when it appeared the Giants were phasing Engram out of the offense in favor of better blockers, the second-year pro has 17 catches for 239 yards -- with a bulk of the damage coming after the catch -- combined over the last three games.Dec 24 Giants lose to the Colts 28-27

(5-9) vs Colts (8-6) Game Preview
Dec 23 The Giants had trouble getting their defense off the field last week. They were unable to contain Titans running back Derrick Henry and, as a result, the Titans controlled the ball for 35:21 while the Giants had it for only 24:39. Now, they face the Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, and no team in the NFL has been more difficult to get off the field.
Dec 22 Are the Giants a 40-point team without Odell Beckham? Or are they a zero-point team? The Giants ruled out Beckham for a third straight game with a bruised quad, and it is possible he has played for the final time this season, with only the season finale against the Cowboys still looming.
Dec 21 Joe Flacco and Eli Manning have enjoyed very similar careers -- from rising to the big moment to their per game averages -- but their organizations are taking very different approaches to the future. And it's not what you would objectively expect.
There are apparently no boundaries to the Giants' search for a quarterback. Bo Levi Mitchell, a two-time MVP in the Canadian Football League, is headed to the Meadowlands to work out for the Giants, a move first reported by GiantsWire.
The Giants defense failed its last test miserably, when Tennessee's Derrick Henry ran roughshod over them in Sunday's loss. Defensive coordinator James Bettcher had a pretty simple explanation for what happened.
Dec 20 Three Giants players - one each from the offense, defense and special teams - were selected to the NFC Pro Bowl team announced today. Rookie running back Saquon Barkley, safety Landon Collins and kicker Aldrick Rosas were elected in voting by fans, players and coaches.
Will Giants be on HBO's Hard Knocks in 2019? They have Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham and no easy out. The only out is by fitting one of three exceptions. The Giants had had an out in 2016 based on hiring Ben McAdoo, an out in 2017 based on their last playoff appearance and an out in 2018 based on hiring Pat Shurmur and their playoff trip. But they don't fall into any of those three categories this season.
So what would you like to do about seeing that this doesn't happen again next year, and the next year, and the year after that? The sticking point seems to be quarterback Eli Manning, who will be the subject of intense focus starting now. Should he return? Should he be led gently into retirement? Should the Giants entertain queries to trade him (yeah, like that's going to happen).
Dec 18 Why Eli Manning is the best option the Giants have at QB next year. A look at the Giants' QB options show sticking with Manning makes most sense.
Giants won't win again until they find their next Eli Manning. The Giants have made their bed and will continue to sleep in it until they find their young franchise quarterback.

Dec 16 Look, it's still a pipe dream's pipe dream, a crazy notion, a fantasy that exists, and should exist, only on the fringes of our imagination. OK? We haven't all lost our minds or our sense of order. Still, these are two absolute realities as Sunday dawns: 1. It is Dec. 15. 2. The Giants are not eliminated from the NFL playoffs. And that is a reality that didn't seem remotely possible five weeks ago.
Dec 15 With Giants' playoff hopes alive, here's your rooting guide for this weekend The 5-8 Giants need to keep winning and get lots of help. It's not even impossible for them to get in at 7-9, which is how crazy -- or perhaps awful -- this race is. Still, the Giants probably need to win their final three games, beginning on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
doubt the news that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will miss his second straight
game with a quad injury was a bummer. Still, from the front office to the locker
room, the Giants are starting to gain a bit of much-needed swagger heading into
Sunday's game against the Titans at MetLife Stadium.
Dec 14 Odell Beckham Jr. was not exactly sure what to call the injury to his quadriceps -- a bruise or a contusion -- and instead wanted to leave the precise diagnosis to the experts. But he was certain of one thing. "S-t ain't right," Beckham said Thursday in his first extended comments since the injury was revealed last Friday.
A game of tags: The story behind Giants wide receiver Russell Shepard and his backpack. Shepard could wind up starting at wide receiver Sunday in place of his college teammate, Odell Beckham Jr., who continues to nurse a quad injury and missed last Sunday's 40-16 victory over the Redskins. He's also a special teams stalwart.
Dec 13 The Giants have a narrow path to the NFL Playoffs, even after rattling off four wins in their last five games following a 1-7 start to the season. However, it isn't completely unrealistic that they will be playing in January.
With two games beginning less than 21 hours apart and inclement weather in the forecast, MetLife Stadium, the Giants and the Jets announced today that neutral end zones will be used for the teams games this weekend.
Dec 12 Majority of Giants' 2019 roster already in place: 8 players who will be hardest to keep | Evan Engram? Landon Collins? The Giants were left scrambling after a self-evaluation in the preseason, with a NFL-high six waiver wire additions before Week 1. It should have been the first sign of trouble brewing. The Giants were left scrambling after a self-evaluation in the preseason, with a NFL-high six waiver wire additions before Week 1. It should have been the first sign of trouble brewing.

Dec 11 Here is how Giants make playoffs | These 6 things need to happen, but it's not THAT crazy.
Eli Manning should remain Giants QB - with a concession. The intrigue is whether Manning is the best option at quarterback next season for John Mara and Steve Tisch, for Dave Gettleman, for Pat Shurmur. He is. He is still Your Mann. Just not a $23 Million Mann.Dec 10 Giants win over the Redskins 40-16

Dec 9 Here's scheme adjustment Giants should make with Odell Beckham out vs. Redskins. With Evan Engram off the injury report and the Giants having success using Rhett Ellison and Scott Simonson together at tight end, coach and play-caller Pat Shumur must decide how to distribute reps. One option is to play all three together in what is called '13' personnel, with one running back, one wide receiver and three tight ends.
Dec 8 For the third time in the last four weeks, the Giants will face a backup quarterback on Sunday afternoon, when Washington trots out Mark Sanchez at FedEx Field in the absence of both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy, who were lost for the season with broken legs.
Will Hernandez starting to show why Giants drafted him so high. The overhaul the Giants attempted this season with their offensive line didn't take right away, but the unit's drastic improvement has been a key factor in the team winning three of its past four games.
Dec 7 Giants not overlooking Mark Sanchez in matchup vs. Redskins. The Giant who probably knows the most about Sanchez is head coach Pat Shurmur. He was the Eagles' offensive coordinator when Sanchez was there.
With Mark Sanchez under center, the Redskins' quarterback carousel is spinning again. Before signing with the Vikings in March, Kirk Cousins became the first Redskins quarterback to start every game in three consecutive seasons since Joe Theismann from 1981 to 1984.
Giants safety battled homeless childhood to live out a dream. with Landon Collins on IR, this is Chandler's real chance, starting Sunday against the Redskins, to open eyes and convince the Giants that he does not deserve to be homeless in the NFL.
Dec 6 Just
a few weeks ago, Mark Sanchez was sitting on the unemployment line. Improbably,
he'll be a starting quarterback for the rest of this season. The Redskins have
no other options left now that Colt McCoy will likely join Smith on injured reserve.
The Giants must decide whether to sign Collins to a long-term extension, let him go in free agency or apply the franchise tag, which would give him a high-paying one-year contract in the neighborhood of $12 million for 2019. Only one player per team per season can be tagged.
Dec 5 Is Giants' Odell Beckham destined to be like Calvin Johnson? Records and 0 playoff wins 'can add up' to take a toll. Beckham is setting individual records but piling up team losses, which sounds a lot like another great NFL receiver from earlier this century.
Landon Collins has played 804 snaps this season, but the New York Giants will be without their most decorated defensive player heading into Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins in Landover, Maryland. Whether the two-time Pro Bowl safety will play another snap in 2018 - or another in a Giants' uniform again - remains uncertain moving forward.
Dec 4 Giants' offensive line faces changes in 2019 but it's stabilized now. What was billed as one of the great game-within-the-game mismatches of the NFL season - the Giants offensive line against the Bears defensive front seven - was anything but after coach and play-caller Pat Shurmur learned from the previous week's mistake and stuck to running Saquon Barkley.
Odds are against Kyle Lauletta playing for Giants this season. At this moment in time, as you attempt to interpret Shurmur-ese, it appears more likely than not Manning will start the rest of the way unless and until it is determined by Shurmur that he does not give the Giants the best chance to win.Dec 3 Giants win over the Bears 30-27

(3-8) vs Chicago (8-3) Game Preview
Dec 2 Scoring continues to be up, up and away in the NFL, and the Giants continue to try, usually unsuccessfully, to keep up. The league has never seen anything like it.
Eli Manning's INTs are way down over 27 games, but will ballhawk Bears, Eddie Jackson change that? Interceptions have not been a problem because Manning is on pace to match his 2008 career-low of 10 interceptions in a season.
Dec 1 It took awhile, but Giants' O-line isn't the worst anymore. The Giants have been burned for the second-most sacks in the NFL this season, but coach Pat Shurmur believes their overhauled offensive line has put together three solid games in a row entering Sunday's test against Khalil Mack and the Bears.
It's unlikely the Giants can pull off the upset without rookie running back Saquon Barkley having a big night. The Penn State product has been as good as advertised as a rusher and a receiver. The 5-11, 233-pound Barkley has an NFL-high seven carries of 25 or more yards, including rushes of 68, 51, 50 and 46 yards. He also has pass receptions of 57 and 55 yards.
