NFL Playoffs Schedule: Updated with all the current results.  

Jan 22 Giants, forget the success of Ezekiel Elliott ... and don't pick a running back in first round of NFL Draft. In Sunday afternoon's NFC title game, we'll watch the Green Bay Packers trot out a converted wide receiver, Ty Montgomery, at running back, while the Atlanta Falcons rely on 2014 fourth-round pick Devonta Freeman and 2015 third-rounder Tevin Coleman.

Jan 20 Adrian Peterson makes pitch to sign with Giants. The Giants' struggling ground game could be a thing of the past.
He said he has "five strong years" left and hinted at other teams he'd like to play for if Minnesota decides to cut him loose - one of which is the Giants.
But dig deeper, and you'll see Peterson isn't the right fit with the Giants. Start with his age and his health. He turns 32 in March, a time when most running backs have retired or are close to being done.

Jan 19 The Giants have to grapple with many questions regarding their disappointing offense over the next few months. A less obvious one: What to make of the fact their leading receiver in the final two weeks of the season was inactive the previous six games?

Ben McAdoo at 39 years old took a Giants organization that had floundered for four years missing the postseason and turned Big Blue into a confident, 11-win playoff qualifier. The arrow has to point up on McAdoo's hiring for now given those facts alone.

Ben McAdoo needs to take a page from Mike Tomlin's playbook and learn how to punish his players. Ben McAdoo, make some room on that giant diner menu of yours for a few notes, because it's time to learn the lesson that Tom Coughlin forgot to teach you.

Odell Beckham Jr. failed to leave a mark on Lambeau Field, so he left one underneath it. The already-infamous hole in the wall in the bowels of Lambeau caused by a Beckham punch following the Giants' 38-13 playoff loss to the Packers on Jan. 8 has been repaired, according to ESPN.

The Giants wide receivers weren't the only ones invited to Miami for the infamous boat trip with Trey Songz and Justin Bieber. The defensive backs were, too, according to safety Landon Collins. But they opted to pass.
That doesn't mean the defensive backs were choir boys necessarily, though. Asked what the secondary did on their off day instead, Collins said, "I can't say on the air." Collins said he didn't mind the receivers flying down to Miami and partying with the Biebs until at least 6 a.m.

Jan 18 Special Report - While four teams get ready to play for Super Bowl invitations on Sunday (two will get letters in the mail, two others will be nothing but good wishes), the Giants are taking all the time they need to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. Problem is, they don't know what went wrong, because it started to go wrong prior to the beginning of the 2016 season.
No, this doesn't have anything to do with the replacing of head coach Tom Coughlin with Ben McAdoo. In the mind of co-owner John Mara, it was time to make that move. Coughlin, despite the two Super Bowl championships and a 110-93 overall regular season record, had put together four consecutive non-playoff seasons and his final two years were identical 6-10 twins.

Jan 12 Ben McAdoo looking for answers to fix Giants' offense. The Giants brought back most of the same offensive personnel - they even added pieces with Sterling Shepard, the return of Victor Cruz, and rookie running back Paul Perkins - yet stumbled throughout the entire season.

How does Giants' Victor Cruz stack up to other No. 3 receivers? Cruz finished the regular season with 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown. That ranked Cruz seventh in catches, fourth in yards and tied for ninth in touchdowns among the No. 3 receivers from the 12 playoff teams.

Odell Beckham knows he has a problem: close Giants friend. Beckham had a miserable game - he nearly dropped as many passes (three) as he caught (four, for just 28 yards) and punctuated his frustration by punching a hole in a wall outside the visiting-team locker room at Lambeau Field.

Keep JPP? Rework Odell's deal? Now comes hard part for Giants. The salary cap is expected to expand to around $155 million. The Giants, at the moment, are projected to be about $32 million under the cap - around the middle of the pack in the league.

Can the Giants afford to bring Johnathan Hankins back? Should they? The Giants had one of the best defensive lines in the NFL this season. Finances will make it a challenge to repeat that next season.

Rashad Jennings got his first taste of the playoffs Sunday, and he said he believes the Giants have the pieces to get back there next season. Jennings is slated to earn slightly more than $3 million next season, so the Giants will have a decision to make.

Games to circle on the Giants' 2017 schedule. With that in mind and the Giants holding the 23rd pick in the draft, has taken a look at the 2017 slate of opponents, first previewing the most intriguing non-divisional games and then breaking down the state of the NFC East.

Jan 11 A day after GM Jerry Reese indicated he wants Odell Beckham Jr. to grow up, teammate Victor Cruz said he wasn't worried about his fellow wideout but does think Beckham's tantrums could hold the receiver back.
Cruz spoke about him lifting other players' spirits in the locker room, whether they are going through on- or off-field issues. The rest of the world, though, sees only the amazing catches and the angry outbursts.

Victor Cruz "absolutely" wants to return to the Giants. The Giants' brass doesn't seem as enthusiastic. Cruz has two years remaining on the five-year, $43 million extension he signed in 2013. But is due $7.4 million next season, so the only way he'll return is he takes another pay cut.

Jerry Reese has never had to worry about the high-stakes world of finding a franchise quarterback. Eli Manning was there when he took over as Giants general manager in 2007, and Manning is still there now, with two Super Bowl titles in-between.
Reese acknowledged that with Manning now 36 years old, the Giants have begun thinking about the successor at starting quarterback. Even if his decline continues in 2017, the Giants are slated to pay Manning over $22 million in 2018.

Former Giants
Rueben Randle signed a futures/reserve contract with the Chicago Bears Tuesday.

Jan 10 Fans may think the Giants played like trash in Green Bay, but the team says it didn't trash their return flight home.
The Giants took out their frustrations at blowing their first shot at the Super Bowl in five years by trashing the jumbo jet that carried them home - leaving it reeking of booze and forcing a major clean-up at Newark Airport.

Jerry Reese tells Odell Beckham it's time to grow up. That was the message that Giants general manager Jerry Reese had for Odell Beckham Jr. as the talented and tumultuous wide receiver heads into the offseason.
Eli Manning on Odell Beckham Jr.: 'You do things, you've got to back it up'. Simply put, Beckham didn't do that against the Packers. The star wideout was awful in the Giants' playoff-eliminating loss. He managed just four catches for 28 yards, despite Manning targeting him 11 times.
Packer on Giants' Odell Beckham Jr.: 'Maybe the stage is too big for him'. How could a player so good and so explosive only post 28 yards receiving against a Packers secondary missing key players?

Giants GM Jerry Reese speaks out on Odell Beckham, Ereck Flowers, Eli Manning. On Day 1 of the Giants' offseason, general manager Jerry Reese could not have been more forceful and thought-provoking on three salient issues. Reese addressed the team's most pressing areas with language that couldn't have been clearer.
The Giants still believe Ereck Flowers has a future with them. They just are not sure where that is any longer. After a shaky second season as the starting left tackle by the former first-round pick, Jerry Reese admitted Monday that Flowers might better serve the Giants at right tackle.

Jason Pierre-Paul is ready for a massive payday. The pending free agent said Monday he will sign a multi-year deal this offseason and hopes to return to the Giants, but his decision will be based on what's best for his family.
Jason Pierre-Paul says he won't sign one-year deal. Jason Pierre-Paul believes he did enough on the field this season to command a long-term contract. Now the defensive end will discover if the Giants feel the same way.

Former Giants
Tom Coughlin, who twice took the Jaguars to the AFC Championship Game as their first coach and led the Giants to two Super Bowl championships in 12 seasons, is back in Jacksonville.
Tom Coughlin seemed uncertain when he spoke to people close to him in recent weeks. What did he really want at age 70? To coach an NFL team again? To be an executive?

Giants (11-5) vs Packers (10-6) Game Preview
The Packers won their Sunday night game with the Detroit Lions 31-24. Both teams knew going in they would be in the playoffs, but the division title and home field advantage was on the line.
The Giants finished up with an 11-5 record. They fought hard for a win in their last game of the season with the Redskins 19-10, even though the results would have no impact on their playoff standing.
Giants - Redskins Wrap-Up

Jan 8 Ben McAdoo has won over the Giants by being one of them. Vince Lombardi could be growling at him from across the field and Ben McAdoo wouldn't blink. The Russians could have jammed his walkie talkie and Ben McAdoo wouldn't have flinched.
McAdoo's going home - to pals who miss him and want to crush him. Ben McAdoo won't be your ordinary visiting NFL head coach Sunday. Not here, at least, and still not yet.

The Giants' and Packers' Sunday afternoon Wild Card showdown at Lambeau Field will be a matchup of Best-on-Best: The Giants' defense, one of the league's top shutdown units, against Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback playing at the highest level right now.

Giants believe Playoff Eli will be be superhero against Packers. They have heard he is not the same quarterback, not at 36. They know he has trouble putting 20 points on the scoreboard, and yet the memory of how this quarterback left Brett Favre frozen in despair nine years ago, then discount double-checked Rodgers five years ago haunts them.

Robbie Gould not worried if Giants-Packers comes down to late kick. Gould, who is in his 12th NFL season but first with the Giants, spent more than a decade as the Bears kicker. Twice a year, every year, he'd kick against the Packers. One of those matchups would be in Lambeau.

Pressure's on Odell Beckham to sink or swim in Green Bay If OBJ doesn't come up with a couple of explosive plays, if he drops an important pass, if he gets a personal foul, if he goes all Josh Norman mode on the Packers, it's going to be blamed on the Miami trip.
Immediately after helping the Giants to their 11th win last Sunday, Beckham flew to Miami, partied into the wee hours with Justin Bieber at a nightclub, partied some more on a yacht in Biscayne Bay and returned home in time for Tuesday's team meetings.

Giants expected to make offensive line change vs. Packers. The Giants are going back to their opening day offensive line to start the second season. Veteran Marshall Newhouse is expected to start at right tackle over Bobby Hart in Sunday's NFC Wild-Card game against the Packers, .

Jan 7 Aaron Rodgers does not scare Landon Collins and the Giants' defense. It's not that they don't respect Rodgers. Damon "Snacks" Harrison called him "one of the greats" on Friday.
As anyone paying attention since 1925 knows, when it comes to the Giants it almost always comes down to defense. The last time the Giants had a first-team All Pro was defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in 2011. That also was the last season in which they won a Super Bowl.

The dream scenario for the Giants is Aaron Rodgers on the sidelines, frozen with helplessness and anxiety, watching the kid run the rock over and over and over again.
On Sunday, the Giants will likely need Paul Perkins and Rashad Jennings to provide another 1-2 punch on the ground in the NFC Wild Card Game in Lambeau Field. They're confident they will.

Eli Manning is tougher than you. He may pull odd faces and inspire unflattering memes, but while other QBs fall by the wayside the Giants' stalwart hasn't missed a start since 2004.

Before the Giants and Packers meet again in a win-or-go-home setting, a look back at the 2007 NFC Championship Game through the eyes of the players who tried not to freeze during it.

The story behind how mini-Ben McAdoo was born. A few months ago, 12-year-old Peter Costigan came home after getting a haircut. The part in his hair, usually on the side, had shifted to the middle.

Jan 6 Mission Impossible? How the Giants plan to defend Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in NFL Playoffs rematch. Limiting the damage inflicted by Aaron Rodgers must be the defense's top priority.
There are worse jobs in the world than being the guy in charge of stopping the Packers' Aaron Rodgers, who has thrown 18 touchdown passes in his past seven games without an interception. But none comes immediately to mind.

A day after Landon Collins said the team's corners started calling themselves the "NYPD" - New York Pass Defense - Green Bay players basically shrugged off the whole thing. "Well, we're in Wisconsin, so we don't have to worry about that," Packers receiver Davante Adams told ESPN.

Damon "Snacks" Harrison is turning to video games to get an upper hand on Aaron Rodgers. The Giants defensive tackle said Thursday he's been playing with the Packers on Madden this week in the lead-up to Big Blue's Wild Card round matchup in Green Bay this weekend.

To hear Bart Scott tell it, Aaron Rodgers will have his way with the Giants' defense - an overrated defense, according to Scott - and lead the Packers to an easy win in their NFC wild-card matchup on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Rashad Jennings and rookie running back Paul Perkins combined for 39 carries for 153 yards and a touchdown in the season finale. With temperatures expected to hover around zero degrees, the running game will likely be a critical component of the Giants' game-plan.

The Giants' coaches preach offensive balance against Green Bay's defense for this Sunday's NFC wild card game, but rookie wide receiver Sterling Shepard wonders aloud if they should throw more against a depleted secondary that was ranked 31st in the league against the pass.

Former Giants
Perry Fewell out of a job again as Redskins overhaul staff. Fewell was fired Thursday by the Redskins along with defensive coordinator Joe Barry, defensive line coach Robb Akey and strength and conditioning coach Mike Clark.n

Jan 5 Frozen balls, AC: Giants going all-out to prepare for Green Bay. The forecast says there should be a high of 14 and a low of 7, practically balmy compared with the minus-1 temperature the Giants and Packers experienced in the NFC Championship game on Jan. 20, 2008.
It will be cold Sunday at Lambeau Field. Not Ice Bowl cold, or even 2008 versus the Giants cold, but cold enough to advise caution to fans attending the game. The normal temperature for this time of year, which will return briefly Monday, is 25 degrees.

The Giants would not be here without Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who, technically, is not a starting cornerback and yet Wednesday was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his two-interception, one-sack performance in the 19-10 victory over the Redskins. Rodgers-Cromartie is in his ninth NFL season and is not thinking about leaving any time soon.

Five years ago Victor Cruz was the toast of Giants nation. The last time the Giants were in the playoffs, Cruz caught two passes for 28 yards in a 28-2 victory over the Falcons on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2012, the first (and still only) playoff game he ever has played at MetLife Stadium.

It's unlikely Giants' defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul will play in Sunday's Wild Card playoff game against the Packers. But Pierre-Paul made a small and encouraging step on Wednesday, when he appeared at practice for the first time since undergoing sports hernia surgery on Dec. 7.
Rookie Romeo Okwara has filled in admirably for Pierre-Paul at the left defensive end position, but JPP was a man possessed in the Giants' Week 12 win in Cleveland, making seven tackles, three sacks, forcing a fumble, and returning a 43-yard fumble for a touchdown.

Jan 4 The Giants' search for an identity is over. They are a low-scoring team with a monstrous defense and a knack for winning close games. But will that be good enough to win it all?
It's no secret that Eli had a subpar season this year, or that the Giants' offense never came close to maximizing its high-octane potential. It's something even Eli himself has publicly conceded.

The Giants are coming off their best rushing game of the season, 166 yards in their regular season finale, a 19-10 victory over Washington.
Rashad Jennings, the starter for most of this season other than the games he missed with injury, was the second running back used in Washington last Sunday. He could not have cared less.

For one very obvious pregnant pause, it seemed as if Eli Manning was about to take his teammates to task for their impromptu visit to Miami. It sounded as if he was ready to express an opinion diametrically opposed to what his coach said a day earlier.
The wide receivers have taken some criticism for flying to Miami Sunday night and hitting the club until at least 6 a.m., risking an encounter with Justin Bieber, before hopping on a boat with Trey Songz on Monday, six days before the team's wild-card game against the Packers.

Jan 3 No opposing head coach is as familiar with Aaron Rodgers as Ben McAdoo is, but the Giants coach says he doesn't have a secret formula to stop the star quarterback. "I don't have any kryptonite," McAdoo said Monday.
Manning has a reputation for being able to perform well in playoff games. Hey, it's been almost eight full calendar years since he's lost one! While the Giants players and coaches who were here in '07 and '11 recognize that, Ben McAdoo has a slightly different perspective.
McAdoo was on the wrong end of Manning's 37-20 victory over the defending Super Bowl champion Packers in the 2011 divisional round in Green Bay, but he would prefer not to ask the 2016 Manning to fight fire with fire against Rodgers.

The Giants' search for an identity is over. They are a low-scoring team with a monstrous defense and a knack for winning close games. But will that be good enough to win it all?
As confident as every Patriots fan you know is, as grand as their swagger might be, offer them a shot of sodium pentothal alongside this question: Would you like taking a third shot at the Giants this time around? Still, that's a long ways off.

On The Game: Game 16
Gamegirl ---"The Giants defense had 3 sacks in the first half and had held the Redskins to zero points. I guess that factored into Ben McAdoo's decision to go for a 4th-and-2 at the Washington 16 yard line on the Giants opening drive in the 3rd quarter..."
Mikefan. ---"Who would have thought, as this long season moved along, at the very end the strength of the Giants offense would be with their running game? All year Eli Manning has had his three healthy talented receivers at his disposal, and today he threw for only 180 yards and no touchdowns...

Giants (10-5) vs Redskins (8-6-1) Game Preview
The Washington Redskins notched another win last Saturday in Chicago. That 41-21 victory kept them on pace for a possible playoff spot.
The Giants could have qualified for the playoffs last week with a Thursday night win in Philadelphia. A 24-19 loss kept that from happening until other teams playing on the weekend gave them that opportunity.
Giants - Eagles Wrap-Up

Jan 1 The secret to Eli Manning's playoff success during his championship runs is not really a secret. There are no drastic differences between Manning's regular season and postseason numbers in almost every relevant statistical measure - except for interceptions, particularly away from the Meadowlands.

Josh Johnson has not thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2011, back when he was with the Buccaneers. His right arm might get dusted off on Sunday, though, if Ben McAdoo decides to pull Eli Manning from the game with the Redskins before the finish.

About all the Giants have left to prove this season is that they can score, and this is their last chance to do so in the regular season. That undoubtedly plays into Ben McAdoo's decision to play his starters and build some momentum in a game in which he could easily and without argument rest them for next weekend's much more important wild-card game.

Brad Wing on living with Odell Beckham, beating the odds - "You just think of the strict numbers - there's 32 jobs in the world for the job that I've been going for for the last six years. The American population is up there, and then you add the Australian population, too, so for me to kind of work my way up through college and then to finally grasp one of those 32 jobs."

The Giants tuned in on Christmas Eve to see the New Orleans Saints beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and clinch Big Blue's first playoff berth in five years. And on Sunday night there is again a good chance Ben McAdoo's players will be glued to their smartphones on the return trip from outside Washington D.C.

Dec 31 Victor Cruz does not need to be told stories about the legend of "Postseason Eli." The Giants' veteran wide receiver is one of the few on the current roster who has lived it.
Eli Manning is mentioned often these days as one of the Giants' liabilities approaching the NFL playoffs due to his shortcomings this season, despite his two-time Super Bowl-winning pedigree.

Ben McAdoo hasn't changed his mind. On Friday he said the same thing he said on Wednesday. He's bringing the Giants to Washington this weekend to win the game.
Janoris Jenkins could be game-time decision vs. Redskins. With Jenkins' status still up in the air, it seems like holding the Pro Bowler out until next week for the playoffs would be a prudent move.

Sterling Shepard has been everything the Giants hoped for - and then some. Shepard enters the finale of his first NFL regular season Sunday in Washington with coach Ben McAdoo raving publicly about him. And that never happens.
Before Shepard ever stepped onto the field, Odell Beckham Jr. was touting him as the next great receiver. He tweeted him (or was it tweaked him?) with a simple number - "1,306" - to signify how many receiving yards he wanted Shepard to have in 2016 to break his own NFL rookie record.

His first NFL game could have been his last. Andrew Adams is aware of how tenuous a football life can be and is living proof what does not get you fired can make you stronger.
Brett Jones has won the Grey Cup. Jones, the Giants' reserve interior offensive lineman, hopes to join a select group of players who have won championships in the CFL and NFL this season.

Dec 30 Special Report - All right, let's file some things under facts we know for sure ... First of all, we know that Giants' head coach Ben McAdoo is going to play his regulars Sunday in Washington, regardless of the fact that his team is cemented in the No. 5 seed (first wild card) and the result of the game won't make any difference.
What we don't know is how long he'll play them - will it depend on the score, on the tenor of the game, on the ferocity which with it's being played? He knows that his regulars are going to be even more important the next week, the first round of the playoffs.

The Giants broke from their typical practice routine on Thursday. After stretching, players usually break up by position groups for drills. But on Thursday, the players were summoned to midfield where captain Jonathan Casillas delivered an impassioned speech.
It was the moment when the regular-season ended and the postseason began for the Giants. Technically that happens on Sunday in Washington after the Giants finish their 16th game on the schedule. But Casillas made sure everyone understood how important this game is to their future, that preparations for the wild-card round - and possibly beyond - cannot be crammed into the space of one week.

Dec 29 They're playing to win the game. Giants coach Ben McAdoo left no doubt Wednesday, adamantly declaring his team will go all out Sunday in Washington and play to beat the Redskins.
Ben McAdoo channeled his inner Herm Edwards Wednesday, saying he will play to win the game on Sunday even though the contest against Washington means nothing.
At no point, however, did McAdoo say that his starters would play the entire game. He was especially vague when it came to questions about quarterback Eli Manning, who has thrown the ball 91 times in his last two games.

Dec 28 Giants starters waiting to hear from Ben McAdoo if they're playing vs. Washington. For now, the players are operating under the assumption that it will be a full go against Washington.

Giants describe how they learned of clinching a playoff berth. Victor Cruz was in a restaurant on Christmas Eve when he found out the Giants made the playoffs.
The Giants, who clinched their postseason berth when the Saints beat the Bucs on Saturday, will return to the playoffs for the first time since their last Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.

The sweetest sound of Rashad Jennings' NFL career was his phone "blowing up with calls and texts" on Saturday. That sound signified the Giants had made the playoffs.
For the first time in his career, Jennings is going to the playoffs. The eight-year veteran has never been there - never even been on a winning team until this season.
