Check the current results and recaps of past years.
Having trouble finding an easy to read-and-print playoff schedule
that takes you from the wildcard games to the Super Bowl? Try ours.

Jan 14 Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the No. 1 candidate for the Giants and Lions. This is the easiest decision Patricia will make in his head coaching career. Indications are Patricia and the Giants want each other with the Lions hoping his long-time association and friendship with Detroit GM Bob Quinn when they were together in New England for 12 years will be enough to attract him to the Motor City and keep him away from the bright lights of Broadway.

Giants can't be left at the coaching altar this time. Do not under any circumstance be left standing in this high-stakes game of musical chairs by Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia taking the Lions job and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels taking the Colts job and Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur taking the Cardinals job.

Jan 13 Devon Kennard is entering an offseason full of uncertainty. The Giants linebacker is set to become a free agent after completing his rookie contract. Kennard wants to return to the Giants, even though he knows the team will be much different after general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo were fired in December.

Matt Patricia could be coordinating his final defensive game plan for the New England Patriots on Saturday night, before relocating four hours south to be the Giants' new head coach. It is unlikely, of course, that the AFC's top-seeded Patriots (13-3) will lose to the fifth-seeded Tennessee Titans (9-7) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in a prime-time NFL divisional round clash (8:15 p.m.).

Jan 12 Giants' coaching search is down to three. The next head coach of the Giants will be Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia or Pat Shurmur, with no surprise candidate looming, and at this point all three are very much in the mix.
All three of the remaining candidates are part of coaching staffs that are participating in playoff games this weekend: Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Of the three finalists for the Giants' head coaching job, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has generated considerably less buzz than Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia. But Shurmur shouldn't be dismissed as a candidate.

Jan 10 You are a general manager, and you are searching for a new head coach. And Bill Belichick is not available. And then you look at the records of those who branched out on their own from the Belichick tree, and you gasp. And so you begin reminding yourself that there is only one Belichick.

Giants' next head coach needs to fix broken offense - or bring on someone who can. The most important question arguably is one of the simplest: If you are our head coach, how will we score points?

Giants Head Coach Interview Tracker. A recap of the New York Giants' head coach interviews to-date: Steve Wilks, Panthers Defensive Coordinator - Pat Shurmur, Vikings Offensive Coordinator - Josh McDaniels, Patriots Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach - Matt Patricia, Patriots Defensive Coordinator - Steve Spagnuolo, Giants Interim Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator.

Jan 9 Odell Beckham pleads with Eli Apple to stop arguing with angry Giants fans on Twitter: 'Stop bro, ur better than that'. Beckham, 25, to his credit, told Apple that neither Beckham nor Apple was "good enough" this season and cautioned it's not "worth it" to respond to the nasty critics on Twitter.

Jan 6 Can Bill Belichick, yes Bill Belichick, be the next coach of the Giants? With a report of turmoil in New England involving him, Tom Brady and Robert Kraft, it certainly seems feasible.
The possibility of Belichick, who was a Giants assistant from 1979-90, returning to the Meadowlands is tantalizing. But is it realistic?

Jan 5 Mike Sullivan left quite the impression with his play-calling Week 6 in Denver. The Broncos on Thursday reached an agreement with Sullivan, the Giants' offensive coordinator the past two seasons, to be Denver's new quarterbacks coach.
Sullivan surfacing in Denver could make the Broncos a more appealing destination for Eli Manning if the Giants cut ties with the 37-year-old quarterback. Sullivan and Manning have developed a strong bond after working together for over a decade.

Dave Gettleman talks Giants rebuild, GM influences and the QB issue, what it means to be a New York Giant: "I'd tell 'em: "You gotta understand: You're playing for a flagship NFL franchise. You're representing a tradition of winning, a tradition of Super Bowls. You've gotta live up to that. This isn't just some place. And you gotta understand that right now."
Gettleman doesn't miss much. The Giants' new GM described how he stayed sharp in the five months between jobs, how he intends to proceed with trying to resurrect the franchise, and dove into subjects ranging from Eli Manning to Eli Apple, to the NFL Draft, the coaching search, to eating elephants, and the personal side of his transition.
Dave Gettleman will be looking for the next Shaun O'Hara. He wants the version of O'Hara before he came to the Giants. The undrafted player who was unheralded and relatively unproven in four seasons with the Browns.

Jan 4 The Giants' coaching search continues to pick up steam. The first interview took place on Wednesday, and there will be more to come in the next five days.
No introductions were necessary Wednesday when Steve Spagnuolo interviewed for the Giants head-coaching job, a position he held on an interim basis for the final four games this season.
Tom Brady sometimes is caught screaming at Josh McDaniels on the sideline. On Wednesday, Brady was singing his praises, providing at least one Giants coaching possibility with the No. 12 Seal of Approval.

Dave Gettleman wasn't only meeting with Steve Spagnuolo as the first candidate to interview for the Giants' head coach vacancy on Wednesday. He also had his first sit-down with cornerback Eli Apple, who was suspended for the final game of the season.
Eli Apple's mother is ready to fight back. Annie Apple was the main subject of a lengthy NJ.com story about the tumultuous season her son has had with the Giants. She was also the focus of a Black Sports Online story about the family's strife. She threatened legal action against both Monday on Twitter.

Giants have no choice: It's time to grab Eli Manning's successor. Gettleman will meet soon with Manning and the summit will likely result in a resolution. Here's hoping Manning will be on board with mentoring one of the young guns along with Davis Webb - if given the chance.
Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold? Either way, Giants have an NFL Draft opportunity they can't pass up. They'll both be available, along with Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield and Wyoming wildcard Josh Allen, setting up the possibility that four quarterbacks could go in the first few picks.

Former Giants
Ben McAdoo once said if the Packers "put a lifetime contract in front of me, I'd probably sign it." The former Giants coach's potential path back to Green Bay has emerged.

Jan 3 New Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made his first local media appearance Tuesday since his introductory press conference last week. Gettleman discussed Eli Manning, Eli Apple, Odell Beckham and more. Some quick takeaways.
Giants new GM Dave Gettleman said last week he plans to move forward with Eli Manning as the quarterback, but on Tuesday he left a little bit of doubt in the air.
It's a marriage that hasn't yet reached its expiration date: Eli Manning and the Giants need each other for one more year. It's been 14 years and unlike a lot of old married couples, the thrill is not yet gone.
Gettleman reiterated that he had not seen much of Manning this season, and that the only game he watched closely was the 434-yard passing performance against the Eagles. "The guy I saw that day was the guy who put two rings on my fingers," Gettleman said.

Who has most attractive coach opening? Giants fans know. It is easily the best destination on the market. Come to New York, dare to be great in a place where if you make it here, you can make it anywhere. The Post's ranking of the best franchises for a head coach with Super Bowl ambitions:.

Ben McAdoo may have to settle for next NFL job

Jan 2 Dave Gettleman walked into the final team meeting of the season, introduced himself to the Giants players and proceeded to tell them this franchise needs to get back to winning.
Some players will stick around the area, but most will disperse after the Giants' dismal 3-13 season. They will do so knowing there's a new sheriff in town. "Change is coming," Gettleman warned.

Manning faces an offseason of uncertainty, and despite receiving initial assurances from newly hired general manager Dave Gettleman that he goes into 2018 as the starter, there are no guarantees.
The veteran sidestepped a direct question about the possibility of accepting a pay cut or reworking his contract in order to ensure there's a place for him on the roster and in the Giants' plans for 2018.

Center Weston Richburg wanted to return and play for the Giants this season, but said the team did not want him to do so.
Richburg said he was medically cleared from a concussion about a month ago. But that clearance meant little because Richburg had been placed on injured reserve on Nov. 4.

Giants (2-13) vs Redskins (7-8) Game Preview
Last Sunday the Washington Redskins treated their fans to a final season home game win. Kirk Cousins threw three touchdowns, and they beat the Denver Broncos 27-11.
The Giants traveled to Arizona last week. They failed to put any points up on the board and took yet another loss, falling to the Cardinals 23-0.
Giants - Cardinals Wrap-Up

Dec 31 Dave Gettleman has started his Giants' house cleaning. He fired Marc Ross, the team's vice president of player evaluation, part of a Saturday blood-letting that also included the cutting of Bobby Hart, the starting right tackle, and the benching of Ereck Flowers, the left tackle.

Dec 30 New Giants GM Dave Gettleman said Friday that he intends to go into 2018 with Eli Manning as the Giants' starting quarterback for next season.
Dave Gettleman is certainly not being paid by Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch to win press conferences. If he were, consider the Giants' new general manager's first one a victory.
He promised to come in and "kick ass" and sign guys who "don't love to win, [but] hate to lose." Here are important takeaways from Gettleman's first press conference.

One of the reasons why Giants team ownership made the decision to hire Dave Gettleman in place now and not to wait to interview more general manager candidates is because they didn't want to waste time in commencing their head coaching search.

The "Giants" will play their 16th and final game of the season on Sunday. The team name is in quotes because, for the most part, the guys on the field for the contest against Washington were never expected to be there.

Giants co-owner John Mara claimed the team never had a plan to play rookie quarterback Davis Webb this season on Friday, even though they clearly did, and communicated as much.
Steve Spagnuolo has shown no inclination to play Webb in the game. Webb is a hard worker and a smart young quarterback but his limited reps in practice can't show a team enough.

Brandon Marshall: Turnaround starts with the players. Marshall pointed to guys such as Damon Harrison and Landon Collins as potential leaders for the team moving forward. But he also wants to be part of it, too.

Retracing the signs of Eli Apple's 'immature but good kid' duality. Should the Giants have suspected this might happen? Warning signs were scattered across the landscape during the buildup to the 2016 NFL Draft.

Dec 29 Special Report - They only interviewed four candidates when at least seven were prominently named, and they reached a decision before the end of the season, but nevertheless, the Giants have a new general manager. His name is Dave Gettleman and he has been here before.
In fact, he spent 15 years with the Giants in a previous stint, first in 1998 as assistant to pro personnel director Tim Rooney. Then in 1969 to replace Rooney, and he spent the next 13 years in that position, scouting the team's upcoming opponent and developing a strong knowledge of every player in the NFL.

The result might work, but this Giants process was bad. If Dave Gettleman uses all his experience and his knowledge and figures out how to get one or two more playoff appearances out of Eli Manning, then he'll have done what is expected.

Nothing went right for the Giants in the first-round of the 2016 NFL Draft when they ended up with Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple. And it all started with Laremy Tunsil's gas-mask bong. That was the catalyst for how the Giants ended up with Apple, whom they suspended on Wednesday.

Brandon Marshall says his best is yet to come. Brandon Marshall had an unproductive 2017 season that was abbreviated because of an injury that required surgery. He will be 34 years old when the 2018 season begins. But that hasn't diminished his desire to continue playing.

Geno Smith says he learned a lot from watching Eli Manning. Geno Smith's time with the Giants seems to have expired. He'll be inactive on Sunday because the Giants promoted rookie Davis Webb to the backup job. Smith said he understands that decision has nothing to do with him.

The Giants and the Washington Redskins are closing out disappointing campaigns for both inside MetLife Stadium on New Year's Eve. Here are five questions for the Giants as they prepare to bid farewell to a season they'd all wish to forget.

Dec 28 Giants have failed Eli Manning, no matter what comes next. Giants have failed Eli Manning, no matter what comes next.

Giants' Davis Webb will be backup QB in Week 17. The Giants' rookie quarterback will be the team's No. 2 signal caller for Sunday's season finale against the Redskins at MetLife Stadium.
After 16 weeks of preparation in the shadows of practices and pregame warmups, Webb may finally get his chance to play in a game that counts.
Geno Smith was demoted on the Giants' quarterback depth chart on Wednesday. Smith sent out a series of tweets suggesting he is less than thrilled with the way things turned out this season.

The Giants have finally had enough of their Bad Apple. Eli Apple, the second-year cornerback mired myriad on-the-field and off-the-field issues, was suspended for the final week of the season.
The last straw: Apple refused to join the scout team during practice and yelled at cornerbacks coach Tim Walton, according to a source familiar with the situation.
The Giants swiftly suspended cornerback Eli Apple after Apple offered a disgusting no-comment by announcing, "I gotta take a s--t," in front of reporters, and chuckling as he walked away.

Dec 27 The Giants may be the second-worst team in the NFL this season, but Eli Manning thinks it's a short trip back to the top. And he hopes he can make that journey with the team.

The "Giants" will play their 16th and final game of the season on Sunday. Most of the actual guys on the field for the upcoming contest against Washington, though, will not have been part of all 16 of those games. Many of them weren't expected to be there starting and playing larger roles, and a good number of them weren't even affiliated with the team when this season of woe began.

Landon Collins wants Eli Apple to ship out. The Giants' two-time Pro Bowl safety blasted his embattled teammate,calling Apple "a cancer" and making it clear he believes the Giants need to get rid of the 2016 first-round pick in the offseason.
Collins underwent surgery Christmas Day to repair a fractured right forearm but he is assured of returning to the Giants in 2018, as he is a marquee player the team wants to build around. Collins, though, is through with Apple.

Dec 26 One more game to go. That might be the best news the Giants have gotten all season, an acknowledgment that this forsaken season is coming to a close.

This has been the most trying season of Manning's football life, with no Odell Beckham Jr. to take one to the house for him, with no one to keep him comfortable in the pocket or even upright.

To some eyes, Sunday's game against Washington is a must-lose situation for the Giants. If they fall to the Redskins, they will secure the No. 2 pick in the upcoming draft.

Jason Pierre-Paul challenges 'true fans' to show up as Giants look to close out dismal season on high note. Coaches and players presumably find it as difficult to come to work during seasons this dreadful as fans find it to watch their team lose constantly.

Giants (2-12) vs Cardinals (6-8) Game Preview
Last week the Cardinals lost to the Redskins 20-15. Kirk Cousins threw two touchdowns in the game for Washington, and Arizona struggled on offense, with all their points coming off five field goals.
The Giants got off to a good start last Sunday against the Eagles, but they couldn't keep it going. Leading at one point in the second quarter 20-7, they saw things turn in the second half, and took a 34-29 loss.
Giants - Eagles Wrap-Up

Dec 24 Giants' desert trip can prove last week wasn't a mirage. Can a hot finish change the way Manning's future is viewed inside the building?

Go ahead and just try to take the ball out of running back Wayne Gallman's hands. You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than you would wrestling the ball free.

What's wrong with Eli Apple? That's one of the prevailing questions from a chaotic Giants season rife with drama. Apple has clashed with the coaching staff, sniped at teammates and nearly bolted from the team's facility after he was criticized in a film session.
It has been a disaster of a season for Eli Apple, a first-round pick in 2016 whose career is careening towards bust territory. He's been benched, made inactive, embarrassed in a team film session and sparred with a teammate through the media.

Dec 23 Jason Pierre-Paul's right hand has been a source of concern and fascination since he severely injured it in a fireworks accident in 2015.The Giants defensive end practiced on a limited basis Friday while wearing a protective club, then told reporters he plans to play against the Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday despite having a broken finger.
Jason Pierre-Paul said he doesn't want to shut himself down for the final two games of this lost Giants season in order to rest. "At this point in the season, probably everybody is hurting," he said. "We've just got to fight through it and motivate yourself to keep on going."

Rookie quarterback Davis Webb is third on the depth chart, and he will be on the outside looking in once again after Steve Spagnuolo confirmed Friday that Webb will be inactive Sunday.
Giants teammates who know Davis Webb best say he has 'it' factor. Three young receivers have worked closely with Webb, who has spent the entire season as the Giants' third-string quarterback.

Antonio Pierce expected to join Herm Edwards' staff at ASU.

Dec 22 Every Giants general manager candidate will likely be asked for his thoughts on quarterback Eli Manning when they interview for the job. Louis Riddick was part of an "NFL Live" panel that discussed how the Giants should handle Manning on Dec. 11, a day after he made his return to the starting lineup against the Cowboys in a 30-10 loss.
If the Giants loved what they saw and heard from Louis Riddick in his Thursday interview for the GM vacancy - which included lunch with Giants co-owner John Mara - that likely would mean replacing the fired Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo with a tantalizing new pair at GM and head coach.

Is Davis Webb a franchise quarterback? Who knows. But he certainly has the poise part of the formula squared away. This nightmarish Giants season has put the rookie in an unenviable position.
Another day, another six snaps with the first team for rookie quarterback Davis Webb on Thursday. And another day closer to the season ending without him taking any in a game situation.

Giants hoping to hit 30-point mark before this season ends. It's not that difficult. "It's not that easy, either," Sterling Shepard said. Shepard knows this because during his two years in the league the Giants have never scored 30 points or more in any game. They've won 13 times in that span, they went to the playoffs. But when it comes to scoring 30-something, they are 30-nothings.

NFL News
The $14 billion league with the $40 million commissioner is using five-cent index cards to measure first downs in a game with playoff implications. The NFL is sure a hi-tech league that leaves nothing to chance.

Dec 21 Davis Webb took six snaps with the first-team offense of the New York Giants in practice Wednesday afternoon.
Interim coach Steve Spagnuolo said ex-coach Ben McAdoo had done a little bit of that but then "got away from it" and now the Giants are bringing it back.

Two Giants on QB future: Stick with Webb, pass on the draft. Landon Collins told The Post, "Don't draft him. Don't do it. Davis is gonna be really good in the league when it's his time, I promise you.
With the Giants undoubtedly getting ready to make a high first-round pick in next spring's draft, some find it imperative for Webb to get some snaps in these final pair of games.

Steve Spagnuolo's orders are clear. At least in his mind. As interim coach, he's being asked to help the Giants win games. Not next year. Not for the years down the road. Now. Which is why, he said, Davis Webb is taking practice reps with the first offensive unit this week but likely won't see the field on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Landon Collins knows what probably needs to happen. "I shouldn't play," he said of the rest of the season while dealing with a sore left ankle injury that he aggravated in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Dec 20 Landon Collins did not have the season he hoped for - personally or as a member of the Giants team - but it will end the same as last year's. With a Pro Bowl nod.

Giants bring back young pass-rusher for a two-game look. Okwara on Tuesday was activated from the reserve/injured; designated for return list.

Compiling Giants' long Christmas wish list: Next franchise QB, new offensive line, and more. With all that has gone wrong, the Giants are probably going to be asking for a lot this holiday season as they try to restore stability and a winning culture back within the organization.

There are maybe five to 10 current Giants players who can be confident they'll have a role on the 2018 team. Another five to 10 can be fairly certain. Beyond that, there isn't much security.

Dec 19 The Giants began their interview process for general manager, keeping things in house by speaking Monday with Marc Ross, their vice president of player evaluation.

After solid outing, Eli Manning will start for Giants Sunday against Cardinals. Steve Spagnuolo said he has no idea why the Giants offense that was stagnant for most of the season came roaring to life on Sunday against the Eagles. But he'd like to see more of it.

What happens if the Eli Manning everyone saw slinging it 57 times in a tight 34-29 loss to the Eagles, the best team in the NFC, is once again starting at quarterback for the Giants in 2018?

The Giants were victimized by the same rule at least once earlier this season, so Eli Manning hardly was surprised while watching the ending of the Pittsburgh-New England game on Sunday.

Giants (2-11) vs Eagles (11-2) Game Preview
Last week the Eagles clinched the NFC East first division title with a 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Unfortunately they lost starting quarterback Carson Wentz in the process to a knee injury. Nick Foles took over and guided the team to two field goals to take the lead. Philadelphia's defense added to the score on the game's last play with a 16-yard fumble return.
The Giants came off their two game road trip and played in front of their home town crowd. While they looked good in the first half going toe to toe with the Cowboys, the Giants weren't able to score any more points. The defense gave up a few big fourth quarter plays that led to a 30-10 win for the Cowboys.
Giants - Cowboys Wrap-Up

Dec 17 If Steve Spagnuolo doesn't play Davis Webb on Christmas Eve in Arizona or in the New Year's Eve season finale at home against Washington, then John Mara compounded his mistake of signing off on Eli Manning's unceremonial benching by hiring the wrong man to coach the Giants' meaningless final four games.

Want to see more of a young Giants player other than Davis Webb as this brutal season comes to a close? Rookie running back Wayne Gallman qualifies. Gallman is coming off his most productive game, with season-highs in rushing attempts (12) and yards (59) in the 30-10 loss to the Cowboys.
