Dec 6 Even if the Giants had beaten Washington on Sunday, their game in two weeks at Fed Ex field still would have been a virtual must-win due to the in-division tiebreaker situation. Washington already has a win against Philadelphia on their ledger, while the Giants have not yet beaten an NFC East team.Dec 5 Giants tie with Washington 20-20

Dec 3 The Giants need to get slumping running back Saquon Barkley going in Sunday's hugely important home game against the Commanders. That much you know. And this much you should know, too: Washington's pass rush - eighth in Pro Football Focus' ratings - will pose a major challenge for the Giants' offensive line. But on the other side of the ball, this reality lingers: If the Giants can't stop the run against the Commanders - who they play again in two weeks - their playoff hopes could be toast.
Dec 2 The Washington Commanders have a gigantic matchup against the New York Giants this weekend at MetLife Stadium. Not only is this a huge NFC East rivalry game, but both teams are currently in the playoffs as NFC wildcard teams, and fighting to keep their spots. Three bold predictions for Commanders huge game vs NY Giants in Week 13.
Dec 1 Giants hope to get more from Daniel Jones as a runner Much like Saquon Barkley, Jones has found the going tougher on the ground in recent week. Jones is fifth among quarterbacks with 451 rushing yards. Kafka knows the Giants need more from the quarterback portion of the run game down the stretch.
Nov 30 Daniel Bellinger hopes to play in a game on Sunday, when the Giants host the Washington Commanders in a key NFC East clash in MetLife Stadium. Bellinger said the biggest challenge in returning to the field is "just getting back into a rhythm. Getting back into getting speed and I feel good about it. The biggest step was obviously hitting and hitting hard with my helmet and pads on, and it felt good today." He also had an adjustment to make with the visor, which is part of his equipment for the first time.
Nov 29 The injury-depleted New York Giants should be getting back some much-needed help at positions where they have been depleted by injury. The team announced Monday that they have designated outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari (calf), offensive lineman Ben Bredeson (knee), and defensive back Tony Jefferson (foot) for return from the injured reserve list.
Nov 28 Following the team's second loss in a row, it is becoming very clear that the NY Giants need some guys back from injury as soon as possible. Forget the horrible officiating and poor execution by the few starters that are healthy, the lack of depth at certain positions hurt the Giants more than anything else against the Cowboys. However, it seems as if the Giants could be getting some very important players back in the coming weeks.
Nov 27 The
skies have darkened around the Giants this week and the long-range forecast
is suddenly not as bright as it was earlier. But after two defeats in five days,
they believe the personnel, the plan and the positive attitude are in place to
weather the storm. A 28-20 loss in Dallas, coupled with their 31-18 defeat to
Detroit, dropped the Giants' record to 7-4.
Nov 26 Injuries have caught up to the Giants' defense, and Wink Martindale's unit has hit a wall. The Giants have allowed an average of 28.6 points per game in their three losses the past four games. They hadn't allowed 25 points to an opponent in their first seven games, and in the past four games, they've surrendered 27 to Seattle, 31 to Detroit and 28 to Dallas.Nov 25 Giants lose to the Cowboys 28-20

Nov 24 At first Darius Slayton was buried on the depth chart. He started out behind Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, Wan'Dale Robinson, David Sills, and Richie James. But as attrition and poor performance whittled away the Giants' depth chart, Slayton got his chance. He's emerged as one of the team's main offensive threats over the last four weeks, averaging 6.5 targets and 76.25 yards.
Nov 23 Giants' offensive line a major concern with Cowboys' fierce defense on Thanksgiving menu. The Giants had eight different guys play offensive line Sunday and it wasn't because they were running one of those heavy packages that offensive coordinator Mike Kafka installed. This time, it was because of injuries and ineffectiveness, a combustible combination that could destroy the Giants' season.
Nov 22 One day after enduring their most unpleasant afternoon of the season, the Giants today have neither the time nor the inclination to host a pity party. Their Sunday included the trifecta of a 31-18 loss to the Detroit Lions, injuries to six players, including a season-ending torn ACL suffered by rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson - who was placed on injured reserve -and victories by their three competitors in the NFC East, including a 37-point road victory by their next opponent.Nov 21 Giants lose to the Lions 31-18

Report - It is now time to reflect. The Giants have played nine games of their
17-game season and they have won seven of those nine, which gives them a 7-2 record.
Go figure. However, there are people who sit in small, cramped rooms all season
and figure out all kinds of things, and one of them just announced that the Giants
have the most difficult second half of the season among all the teams in the NFL.
Nov 18 MetLife Stadium replacing field in 2023, but not to grass. Giants player rep Julian Love told NJ Advance Media Wednesday the turf would be changed next season. Love and the players were hoping the playing surface at MetLife would be replaced by natural grass. That does not appear to be the case. Love told NJ Advance Media Wednesday that "the stats have shown we are on one of the worst fields in the league." The topic came up most recently when wide receiver Sterling Shepard tore his ACL earlier this year.
Nov 17 Jason Pinnock on a mission to prove he's 'not just a special teams guy'. Pinnock, on a blindside blitz, forced Davis Mills out of the pocket and got credit for a half sack with the other half going to star defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence to end Houston's first offensive series. Pinnock's first career solo sack came on the Texans' final offensive play as he dropped Mills for a 10-yard loss that forced Houston to kick a field goal before trying an onside kick.
Nov 16 The Giants have gravitated more toward being a one-dimensional offense, one that primarily rides on the legs of running back Saquon Barkley while passing the ball more or less on an "as-needed basis." Outside of their two losses to Dallas and Seattle, and, technically, their Week 2 win over Carolina, the Giants' run-pass play distribution has been heavily tipped toward the run, and all of those games have been victories.
Nov 15 As
Saquon Barkley continues to display the All-Pro-caliber form he did during
the late 2010s, the Giants are quickly warming up to the prospect of keeping him
around beyond his rookie contract. A franchise tag presents a complicated situation,
with Daniel Jones also having played better under Brian Daboll than he did for
most of his first three seasons.
