They started early
Don't miss out!

Nov 25 The Giants' path to nine wins and an NFC East crown. the playoffs are sitting in front of them like a moist, plump, Big Blue turkey. You bet it is time for Coughlin and the Giants to give their fans a team they can give thanks to after three consecutive seasons out of the postseason. The Big Blueprint: Win nine games.

What do the Giants need to do in order to stave off challenges from the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys? Let's use this week's "Five things I think I think" to look at five things the Giants have to do in order to win the NFC East.

Chase Blackburn's advice for a successful Hakeem Nicks return: Know your role. In the last few years, the Giants have given a handful of former players opportunities to come back and help the team after they bolted elsewhere only to find the contracts were often greener than the grass. Brandon Jacobs, Aaron Ross, Mario Manningham, they've all come back for a Giants encore only to find they had no more tunes to sing.

Former Giants
Quincy Monk, a former Giants linebacker, died on Tuesday, at age 36. He began his career with the Giants as a seventh-round draft pick in 2002, and played in 13 games with Big Blue.

Nov 24 Special Report - As long as the Giants get a weekend off, things will look better and better in their attempt to win the NFC East. They didn't play Sunday, but the Washington Redskins did and the Philadelphia Eagles did. And both not only lost but were shredded.
Only the Dallas Cowboys, the fourth member of this under-achieving division, managed to win, but they are now 3-7 and still must play Carolina, Green Bay and Buffalo. Fortunately for them, they also have Washington twice.

Examining Hakeem Nicks' potential role and what the Giants think he can contribute. Nicks is back in the NFL. What can he do with this new opportunity? Recent history says not much.
Nicks is not the player he was as a first-round pick in 2009 and as a key member of the Giants' 2011 Super Bowl champs. But the Giants like the prospects of Nicks, who battled foot and knee injuries when his production dropped in 2013.
Nicks has caught more passes for more yards from Eli Manning than any other player, but this is a new offense. Monday was his first practice in the system. While the rest of the team was on a bye, Nicks said he stayed at the team facility to get a jump on the new playbook.

NFL News
A Player Concussed, and a Policy Questioned. Only after the game did the Rams give Keenum a test to see if he had sustained a concussion, which he had.

Nov 23 Tom Coughlin, Jerry Reese's jobs depend on Giants making playoffs. Maybe that's harsh or unfair, especially considering Reese and Coughlin share two Super Bowl rings. It's even mind-boggling to think their fates could come down to a dropped pass or missed kick when the Giants play host to the Eagles in the season finale on Jan 3.

The Giants had to be pleased with what they saw Sunday as they enjoyed the final day of their bye week before reporting back to work on Monday. The Redskins coughed the ball up five times in their blowout loss, while the Eagles officially achieved dumpster fire status with their 45-17 loss at home to the Buccaneers.

NFC East News
Eagles - Only faint boos could be heard at the end of the Eagles' 45-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. There weren't many devotees left to voice displeasure.
Redskins - After a 44-16 loss to Carolina, the Redskins are 0-5 on the road this season and have won just one road game under Coach Jay Gruden.
Cowboys - Romo threw two touchdowns, was intercepted twice and mostly lifted this team by his presence, and that was enough to allow Dallas to dismiss the Miami Dolphins, 24-14, Sunday.

Nov 22 Five things Giants must do to end playoff drought. The potential of Giants running back Orleans Darkwa is just one of the elements to success the rest of the season if Big Blue wants to snap long playoff drought.
Giants seek consistency from tight end Will Tye. Tye has made some nice plays for the Giants. They want more. Overall, though, the Giants are pleased with Tye's development.

Evaluating Giants' vital rookies: Troubling stats justify concerns. Giants general manager Jerry Reese says it every season: The first- and second-round draft picks have to come in and play. They have to contribute. They have to make a difference, as rookies. How did his top picks do?
In some ways, the issues that created concern for the Giants at the start of the season with both of those players -- technique for Ereck Flowers at left tackle, communicating the defense at safety for Landon Collins -- still are the main roadblocks in their development.

Nov 21 Viewer's Guide: Impact games to watch during bye week. Keep an eye on these NFL games that could impact the Giants while the team is on their bye week.

At the conclusion of week 10 there are only 11 NFL teams with a record over 500, the fewest this far into the season since 1990. With a win from the Eagles and the Redskins, there could be a 3 way log jam a top the NFC East.

The Giants have big decisions to make not only on Victor Cruz, but also on three other players whose futures are complicated by injury issues: defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, cornerback Prince Amukamara and linebacker Jon Beason.

Nov 20 With middle linebacker Jon Beason out for the season, Giants linebackers coach Jim Herrmann said he feels the rest of his charges "have stepped up their game because of that, they all take leadership." One player who has definitely done that, Herrmann said, is second-year linebacker Devon Kennard.

Will Tye couldn't get off the bench at Florida State and wasn't even invited to the NFL Scouting Combine last winter. Last Sunday, the Stony Brook University product was catching key passes in a close game against the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Giants started the season using a three-man committee at running back. In recent weeks, with Orleans Darkwa forcing his way into the picture, the Giants used a four-man committee. Here are the basic numbers for Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen, Andre Williams and Darkwa thus far.

Nov 19 Tom Coughlin still miffed about Odell Beckham Jr. touchdown catch that wasn't vs. Patriots. With the Giants on their bye week, head coach Tom Coughlin called in to WFAN on Wednesday afternoon to break bread with Mike Francesa.
In real-time, it was hard to discern whether or not the play was a score, and the refs took a few seconds to deliberate. They initially ruled it a touchdown only to overturn that on instant replay.

On Sunday, in the Giants' 27-26 loss to the undefeated Patriots, they sacked Tom Brady three times, hit him five times, and collapsed his pocket more than they've done to any quarterback all year. The defense seemed fast, aggressive and surprisingly effective. And yes, they believe a lot of that has to do with the return of JPP.

Four months after mangling his own right hand in that well-chronicled Fourth of July fireworks accident, Jason Pierre-Paul is giving back to those who have endured similar experiences.

Damontre Moore didn't get called for roughing the passer in Sunday's game, which stands as a major victory for the New York Giants' beleaguered defensive end. That broke a streak of three straight games in which Moore played and was flagged for roughing the passer.

Nov 18 The Giants will replace one star from the 2011 Super Bowl run with another. On Tuesday, one day after officially losing Victor Cruz for the season, the Giants signed receiver Hakeem Nicks.
Nicks reunited with the team that drafted him in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft on Tuesday, hoping to revive a once-promising career and give the Giants a boost as they prepare for a six-game stretch run with the goal of their first NFC East title and playoff berth since 2011 in sight
Nicks had workouts this season for various teams, including the Giants back in September, when they took a look at Nicks and Wes Welker and passed on both of them.
Nicks has caught more passes (306) for more yards (4,538) from Eli Manning than any other receiver. He also had 28 postseason receptions for 444 yards and four scores. The 28 catches place him third on the Giants' postseason list and he is second in both yards and touchdown catches.


Nov 17 Another Giants season ended for Victor Cruz on Monday, this one before it ever started, when the wide receiver announced he is having surgery on his left calf muscle.
The Giants hoped Cruz would be back for the stretch run, but when he did some route-running Saturday with trainers, he reinjured the muscle.
The Giants wished Cruz the best and are hopeful he can return to play in 2016. But if he does play on opening day next year, it will be almost 23 months between games, an NFL eternity.
Victor Cruz will have season-ending surgery and his Giants career could end. Victor Cruz timeline: A look at the Giant receiver's career.

For as many times as the Giants have fallen this season, they have plenty of time to get up. Six games remain, and the club is still in position to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

As searing as those two recent defeats and the close losses to Dallas and Atlanta in the season's first two weeks were, coach Tom Coughlin believes the immediate future could be fruitful.

On The Game: Game 10
Gamegirl - "You know the Giants always rise to the occasion when they play the Patriots, and at the half the score was 17-10 in their favor. They came so very close in this game and almost got the win. It was such a disappointment when they didn't."
Mikefan.   - "
You knew the Patriots were going to target Odell Beckham Jr., but from the start Eli Manning made it known he was going to throw it to him anyway. In all, Manning threw for 361 yards and 104 went to Beckham. Manning targeted him twelve times and Beckham pulled in four, including an 87 yard touchdown. Beckham just needed to hang onto the last one to make it five and to help give the Giants a win over New England."

Giants (5-4) vs Patriots (8-0)
Last Sunday the Patriots won 27-10 playing against the Redskins in New England. They led the whole game by a wide margin and only a touchdown in the last few seconds made the score look slightly better.
The Giants played their game in Tampa Bay and came away with a 32-18 win. That victory insured they'd lead the division for at least one more week.

Nov 15 Giants in a familiar spot, with undefeated Patriots coming to MetLife Stadium. Odell Beckham has seen all the pictures around the Giants' practice facility in his year-and-a-half with the team, mementos of some of the greatest moments in franchise history.

The task of stopping the Patriots' best pass-rusher goes to Ereck Flowers. Rookie left tackle Ereck Flowers figured to have his hands full with defensive end Chandler Jones, who leads the NFL with 9.5 sacks in eight games. The Giants, as a team, have just nine sacks in nine games.

Nov 14 It is a tired football cliche, but the Giants' best defense on Sunday could be a good offense. Stopping the Patriots' high-powered offensive attack will be a tall task. But if the Giants' offense can keep quarterback Tom Brady on the sideline, it can only help the cause.

Linebacker Jonathan Casillas played in eight games for the Pats and all three playoff games, ending in their Super Bowl victory. But he wasn't there long enough to figure things out, and signed with the Giants this past offseason. He wasn't privy to a New England playbook. Ever.

How the Giants attempt to get Odell Beckham Jr. the football Sunday afternoon despite the extra attention paid to him will be a fascinating plot in the latest Giants-Patriots showdown. When the Giants have been at their best, Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris have stepped up.

Nov 13 Reminders of the past were inevitable this week leading up to Sunday's Giants-Patriots duel, but those brutal losses are not something Rob Gronkowski prefers to dwell on.
Would you look at that, an undefeated Patriots team facing the Giants. Where have we seen that before? This game won't end up like those two famous matchups from the 2007 season, though.

Nov 12 The Patriots will be wearing the bull's eye of an unbeaten opponent when they come to the Meadowlands Sunday, and the Giants know the standard they must meet if they are to take down the defending Super Bowl champions.
The Giants are about to face their most dangerous and explosive opponent, a near-unstoppable force overflowing with quickstrike ability. And so are the New England Patriots, who are about to face Odell Beckham Jr.

Super Bowl losses to Giants still haunt Patriots QB Tom Brady. The second Super Bowl loss to the Giants hurt, it hurt a lot, but the pain from the first one will never go away for Tom Brady.
Tom Brady has won four Super Bowls and is eyeing a fifth. But it's the two he almost won that he keeps getting asked about as the Patriots prepare to play the Giants on Sunday. The Giants are responsible for two of the lowest points in the future Hall of Fame quarterback's career.

Nov 11 Eli Manning never wore a Patriots uniform, but he knows a thing or two about their defense - and how to beat them. Manning is 3-1 against the Patriots, with three fourth-quarter comebacks, two in the Super Bowl.
Since the start of the 2008 season, the Patriots have beaten every team in the league at least once - except the Giants.Of course, this does not have the feel of a battle of first-place teams, even if that is precisely what the NFL standings declare it to be.

The Patriots are 8-0 and putting together one of those beat-us-if-you-dare seasons, where winning the AFC East is a mere formality, gaining the No. 1 seed in the AFC only a matter of time and the only real drama is whether they can match their 2007 results and finish the regular season 16-0..
The historical implications may be lost on the current generation of Giants, but the future is very clear. Beating the Patriots not only would allow them to head into their bye in first place in the NFC East (they have a half-game lead over the Eagles, who will host Miami on Sunday) and vandalize another unblemished Patriots season but would send a message throughout the league that the Giants are for real.

Nov 10 Rueben Randle felt like doing jumping jacks his TD was so easy. He barely had to move in the end zone as he hauled in an 8-yard pass from Eli Manning. Randle was able to play 65 of 75 offensive snaps, despite again dealing with a tender hamstring.

It was a good start for Jason Pierre-Paul. Now the Giants want more. Pierre-Paul made two tackles and had two quarterback hits. He also was one of the few Giants defensive linemen who were able to apply pressure on Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston.

Tackle Johnathan Hankins, a productive and complete player, tore a pectoral muscle in the Giants' victory at Tampa Bay and must undergo surgery.
Johnathan Hankins' season is over. The defensive tackle will need to have season-ending surgery on his torn left pectoral, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said on Monday.

Nov 9 Giants win over the Buccaneers 32-18  | Video |  Photos
On The Game: Game 9
Gamegirl - "I can't believe things started with Eli Manning throwing an interception on the very first play of the game. Manning's pass to Odell Beckham Jr. bounced off his hands and was immediately grabbed up by a Tampa Bay defender. Luckily, Dwayne Harris shoved him out of bounds and that helped save a touchdown, but before the game was even two minutes old, the Giants were already down 3-0."
Mikefan.   -
"Jason Pierre-Paul looked good in his first game back. He was in for most of the plays and although he didn't have a sack, you could see he was generating some real good pressure up front."

Giants (4-4) vs Buccaneers (3-4) - Preview
Last Sunday in Atlanta the Bucs had a nice 20-3 lead going for them in the third quarter. They allowed the Falcons to come back and take the game into overtime, but still managed an upset 23-20 win.
The Giants duked it out with the Saints in a wild shoot out of a game in New Orleans. Somehow 49 points wasn't enough to win in this game as they ended up with a 52-49 loss.
Giants - Saints Wrap-Up

Nov 8 Grateful JPP escaped hell for this hazy shot with Giants. He comes back to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, better late than never, because there were legitimate fears that never was a real possibility.
No one truly knows what is going to happen once the ball is snapped and the Giants defensive end takes aim at Buccaneers rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. Until then, Pierre-Paul and the Giants are relegated to playing a guessing game.

Jon Beason placed on injured reserve ending season and possibly Giants' career. When Jon Beason arrived three years ago, he seemed so much like the final stabilizing piece in the Giants defense, a vocal middle linebacker and a strong leader. But Beason's body never could stay stable.
The Giants placed the veteran linebacker on season-ending injured reserve in order to free up a roster spot to activate defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul prior to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Beason, 30, will play five or fewer games for the second straight year. He only played four in 2014. Beason has only played more than five games once in the last four seasons.

Nov 7 Special Report - Five keys to beating Tampa Bay: Press a rookie quarterback, attack a weak pass defense and maybe welcome back an old friend. There were no real lessons learned last week in the aftermath of the 52-49 soul-crushing defeat in New Orleans. Everything was already clear: the Giants' offense can score with the best, but the defense can't stop anyone, and neither unit seems capable of putting the other team away when the opportunity is at hand.

The lashing from the Saints left the Giants with what is statistically the worst defense in the NFL, allowing 427.5 yards per game. They also have the worst pass defense (315.4 yards) in the league even though they lead the NFL with nine interceptions. Those numbers were bad before last week's performance. Now they are not only worse, they are the worst.

Jason Pierre-Paul decision coming Saturday, expectations among teammates is he'll play vs. Bucs. Nothing has been made official about the playing status of Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. All signs point to Pierre-Paul playing, just over four months following a Fourth of July weekend fireworks accident. Pierre-Paul lost his right index finger, and parts of his thumb and middle finger. He practiced this week without incident.
Actually, the surprise will be if he isn't activated. Coach Tom Coughlin said he has been "pleased" with what he has seen from Pierre-Paul this week. But even if Pierre-Paul returns, the Giants will be playing without two important pieces. Middle linebacker Jon Beason will miss his second straight game with ankle and knee injuries and cornerback Prince Amukamara will miss his fourth straight with a partially torn pectoral muscle.

Through eight weeks this season, over half of all passing yards have come from quarterbacks who are on the "wrong" side of 30. The same is true of passing touchdowns.

Nov 6 The question looming over the Giants all week has been about how will the defense bounce back from its performance against New Orleans. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie knows the answer. During training camp, Cullen Jenkins said one of the issues that has hindered the Giants the last few seasons was their inability to deliver the knockout punch. He said they lacked a killer instinct and couldn't close out wins.

It wasn't long ago that Victor Cruz was counting down the days to the start of the season in anticipation of his return. Now he's keeping an eye on the end of the season, which is looming with each passing day he spends sidelined.
Cruz demurred when asked if it's reasonable to think he would return after the Giants' bye, Nov. 29 at Washington. The Giants will have six games remaining after their bye. Cruz conceded he is well aware the clock is ticking..

Undrafted free agent Will Tye is on track for his first NFL start Sunday, mainly because the Giants are running out of tight ends.
Tye has 77 yards on eight receptions this season, and Coughlin likes the improvements that he has made in recent weeks.

Nov 5 On Wednesday, after just one week back with the Giants, Pierre-Paul hinted that he expects to suit up for Sunday's showdown against in Tampa Bay. And then, he dared the Bucs to test him and his damaged right hand.
If Jason Pierre-Paul makes his season debut this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a week earlier than expected, many will see it as a desperation move by the Giants to aid their woeful defense.
That Giants medical staff - and the franchise as a whole - is known for being cautious and methodical, but Coughlin turned that reputation on its head with his go-for-broke comments on Pierre-Paul.

A Jameis Winston stat that should worry the Giants, 9 other things fans need to know about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jameis Winston is a rookie, but he has been sensational over the past three games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who the Giants will take on this Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Will Tye began the season on the Giants' practice squad. This week he'll be much more than that. "We feel like he's got to be the guy," Tom Coughlin said of the rookie tight end from Stony Brook University. Of course, there aren't many other choices.

Nov 4 This is what it's come down to for the struggling Giants defense: This Sunday in Tampa Bay, Big Blue will face a work-in-progress rookie QB who has few offensive weapons - and there's no guarantee that they'll be able to stop him.

The Giants did something in the first half of this season that they were unable to do the last two years: survive. They are 4-4 and in first place in the NFC East at a time when most recently they have been facing must-win games and starting to figure out formulas to avoid mathematical elimination. But there are still eight games remaining.

No team in the division - not even the Cowboys with the return of Tony Romo, still two weeks away - can look forward to the possible stash of riches the Giants might soon unveil. Adding Jason Pierre-Paul and Prince Amukamara to a defense that just allowed 52 points to the Saints could be Cespedes-like in terms of impact. Adding Victor Cruz and Will Beatty to an offense that just scored 49 points on the Saints could fine-tune specific areas of need and provide that extra something to put the attack over the top.

Nov 3 Is it possible Jason Pierre-Paul will make his season debut on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
Pierre-Paul's physical readiness seems to have shocked the Giants and - along with allowing 52 points and 511 passing yards to a virtually untouched Drew Brees - spurred the earlier ETA for JPP.
He took the field for the first time Wednesday, and worked with the scout team on Thursday. This week, the Giants will place more demands on him to gauge his readiness for game action.

The only thing worse than giving up 52 points and 608 yards to the Saints on Sunday? Reliving it on Monday. That's what the Giants had to do as they broke down their breakdowns and rehashed their horrors during the traditional day-after video session.

On The Game: Game 8
Gamegirl - "It shouldn't have ended the way it did. It just shouldn't. I don't know that the Giants deserved to win after giving up 52 points, but it shouldn't have come down to a last minute 50 yard field goal made possible by a penalty on a punt return with 5 seconds left. How do you lose a game where Eli Manning throws six touchdowns and no interceptions"
Mikefan.   -
"This was a game that will be hard to forget for the fans of both teams and the players. It was more like a video game where the teenage brothers control the offense and the younger siblings are on defense unaware their controllers were set to the highest difficulty level. Yes, older brothers will do that, and that's how you end up with a 52-49 score when the time runs out"
