Mar 23 Kevin Zeitler learned from Browns' Joe Thomas but falls in line with Nate Solder, Will Hernandez. Since winning Super Bowl XLVI, the Giants have swung and missed almost annually at building an offensive line. Zeitler's job is to solidify the right side of the line of scrimmage.

Mar 22 Pat Shurmur loves new Giants, especially his offensive lineman. Shurmur now sees an answer for at least four of the five starting spots on the line. From left to right, the Giants have Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, either Jon Halapio (coming back from ankle surgery) or Spencer Pulley at center and Kevin Zeitler at right guard.

Former Giants
Landon Collins admits he would have held out had Giants franchised him.

Mar 19 Giants general manager Dave Gettleman continues to insist that he has a plan to make the Giants into a contender sooner than later. Just don't expect him to share any details. "Really and truly, very honestly, it's not my responsibility to tell you guys what I'm doing," Gettleman said Monday during a conference call.
Gettleman is trusting in an upgraded offensive line, a Saquon Barkley-centric offense and Good 'Ole Eli being forced to play catch-up because Landon Collins and Olivier Vernon are gone from a decimated defense. With no Beckham to bail him out. The good news is Manning isn't higher than the middle-of-the-contract pack for quarterbacks. "You can win while you're building," Gettleman said. Again: He's rebuilding.

Mar 18 Having traded away Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns last week, the Giants need to restock their receiver corps. Cody Latimer, will be re-signed. Latimer announced his return Sunday night on Twitter, posting: "Back for seconds!!!. Let's go big blue!!!" Latimer, 26, made an impression early last season before a hamstring strain in Week 6 put him on injured reserve.

Mar 17 Eli Manning gets $5M bonus from Giants and surest sign yet he is 2019 starter. Manning is due a $5 million bonus just for being on the roster on the fifth day of the 2019 NFL calendar (Sunday) under the terms of his contract. The bonus went into effect at 4 p.m. Saturday, according to ESPN. That is the close-of-business for NFL transactions, so Manning will be on the roster when Sunday begins and there is no wire on Sunday so any move wouldn't be official until Monday.

Mar 16 Grading the Giants' offseason moves so far Giants trying to replace Beckham, Collins and Vernon. Just 15 months ago, the Giants hired Dave Gettleman to fix the franchise. He earned praise for a series of early housecleaning moves.Now, suddenly, his new title is "embattled GM".

Former Giants
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie wasn't ready to ride off into the sunset and enjoy the retirement life. A week after being reinstated, Rodgers-Cromartie signed with the Washington Redskins.

Mar 15 Giants sign veteran safety Antoine Bethea. He has won a Super Bowl, played in three Pro Bowls, and amassed almost 1,500 tackles in 13 NFL seasons.
The Giants are back in the pass-rushing business, after they agreed to terms Thursday with Markus Golden, an outside linebacker with the ability to get to the quarterback.
Golden Tate's four-year, $37.5 million contract, with $23 million guaranteed, proves that the Giants aren't rebuilding. It also reinforces that Odell Beckham Jr. was traded primarily not to rebuild the roster, but because the club's brass didn't want him on the team anymore.

Mar 14 Former New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham is gone, but certainly his impact on the franchise won't be forgotten. Beckham, traded Tuesday to the Cleveland Browns, posted a message Thursday on Instagram to say goodbye to the Giants
There is an Odell-ness to Odell Beckham Jr. and, after five years, it eventually ran its course for the Giants. Some inside the building feel a sense of relief that the superstar receiver will no longer bring unwanted attention to a franchise that did not necessarily grow sick of him but grew increasingly exhausted trying to keep up with the issues.

Mar 13 The Giants are sending Beckham to the Browns in exchange for a first-round pick and a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, plus safety Jabrill Peppers - an East Orange native.
After five seasons, Odell Beckham Jr.'s career with the Giants is over, but what a five years it was. Here's a look at the many highs and lows.

Mar 12 Lose-lose for Giants: They don't keep Landon Collins, and now he agrees with rival Redskins. Where Giants general manager Dave Gettleman saw little value in paying big for Collins, the Redskins wasted no time in making spending lavishly on him and making Collins a centerpiece for the Giants' NFC East rivals.
Collins signing a blockbuster six-year, $84 million deal with $45 million guaranteed over the first three years from the Redskins is the worst possible nightmare for Giants fans still up in arms that Dave Gettleman allowed him to walk out the Big Blue door.

Mar 10 Special Report - So the Giants have unloaded another horrifically expensive commodity, linebacker Olivier Vernon, and obtained a useable, productive right guard from the Cleveland Browns, Kevin Zeitler. The trade, which includes a fifth-round draft pick going to the Giants and a fourth to the Browns, was unofficially announced Friday, but since the NFL's trading period doesn't start until next Wednesday, it couldn't be termed official.
But Zeitler, who graded out as the best pass-blocking guard in the NFL last season (he allowed just three sacks over the last two years) should automatically become a fixture at right guard, and along with last year's rookie, Will Hernandez, provide quarterback Eli Manning with some long-needed relief from the demons of defense. It would surprise no one if we heard that Eli bought him a car or a house or something of significant value to welcome him to the team. He might even be able to acquire cheaper health insurance, you know?

Mar 9 Dave Gettleman got off the canvas following the Landon Collins follies and made a good deal unloading Olivier Vernon for Kevin Zeitler, a quality bookend guard for Will Hernandez on an offensive line he vowed to upgrade when he arrived and a godsend for Saquon Barkley, Eli Manning and the quarterback's unidentified successor.

NFL Draft 2019: Where do Giants pick in all 7 rounds? | Enough assets to trade for Cardinals' Josh Rosen? With needs for starters at right tackle, cornerback, free safety, outside linebacker and possibly more, the Giants need to be active when free-agent negotiations begin Monday because they cannot rely on the draft to fill too many holes.

Mar 7 Separating fact from fiction in Landon Collins' departure from Giants What's Dave Gettleman's plan? Is this Eli's fault?

Mar 6 Giants blew it not trading Landon Collins and buying 2018 playoff delusions | Olivier Vernon next? Where's the foresight? Why are the Giants in this spot?
Gettleman has vowed to (re)build the Giants one brick at a time, but the foundation of his house isn't nearly as sturdy today without a brick such as Collins entering his prime.
These decisions are not made in a vacuum. That's what Giants general manager Dave Gettleman told us in Indianapolis last week when, truth be told, he was pretty up front about Landon Collins' uncertain future with the franchise.

Mar 3 Giants scoping out defensive lineman who can make an impact. The top two in this draft, Nick Bosa of Ohio State and Josh Allen of Kentucky, figure to be off the board in the first five picks, even if quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray are taken that high.

Mar 1 The Giants will always try to win. The faces change, but the expectations remain the same. But do not be fooled by thinking that they are a win-now team just because they're riding one more time with 38-year-old Eli Manning. Which brings us to The Case For Trading Odell Beckham Jr.

Feb 28 It's finding a franchise QB or bust for Dave Gettleman. Gettleman reminded us a year ago when he passed on Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and Rosen with the second-overall pick that you better not draft a quarterback unless you have a conviction on him, because you risk finding yourself in Quarterback Hell if you swing and miss.
Dave Gettleman has a dream: 'I would love to drop a franchise quarterback in this place' Gettleman wants to follow 'the Kansas City model' in Manning's case. The situations are different, of course, but the philosophy is the same. He insisted "you can not reach," especially for a quarterback. The position is too important. The pick is too big.

Feb 27 Will Giants be blown away at combine, like they were with Saquon? Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur have no buyers' remorse for taking Barkley when they did.

Feb 25 Five free agents the New York Giants should consider. The NFL calendar is about to move away from its dead period into the annual scouting combine and soon after that, into free agency.

Feb 24 These five teams would likely pursue Landon Collins if Giants let him walk Two division rivals could be on the Pro Bowler's radar. If the Giants do use the franchise tag on Landon Collins, he'll have little realistic choice but to eventually sign it.

The significant front-office, coaching and scouting personal of all 32 NFL teams gather this week in Indianapolis for the Scouting Combine, and it would be appropriate for the teams to form two lines: one for franchises searching for a quarterback, and one for those that are not. The Giants could stand in both lines.

Feb 23 The NFL awarded the Giants a fifth-round pick Friday as part of its compensatory formula. The additional pick gives the Giants 10 selections in next month's draft.

Feb 22 Pat Shurmur will need to find a new defensive backs coach. His now former one, valued assistant coach Lou Anarumo, is leaving to be the Bengals' defensive coordinator.

NFL News
NFL should adopt these intriguing rules from Alliance of American Football.

Feb 21 Special Report - There are two major subjects..., namely the situation with the quarterback Eli Manning and the immediate future of safety Landon Collins. Both could go, or both might stay. Eli may become the victim of the salary cap, since he makes nearly $17 million a year and the cap can use a little less pressure, especially from a 38-year-old athlete.
Collins just completed his fourth season in the NFL and is perhaps one of the top three safeties in the league. He is also without a contract, and as a free agent the Giants have only a few choices - put the Franchise tag on him to freeze his mobility for one full season or negotiate a new contract.

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 to fill.
Despite a torn labrum in his left shoulder cutting his 2018 season four games short, Collins still logged 96 total tackles, five tackles for loss, four pass breakups, and one forced fumble. However, Collins has never been an elite defender in coverage, and that has been evident over the past two seasons.

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.
Nate Solder sees 2018 as 'good starting point' for OL. The key is to improve from Week 1 to Week 17, and while they still have a long way to go, there is no denying the Giants did that in 2018 under a new regime. After a 1-7 start, they went 4-4 in the second half, losing their final two games by one point apiece to playoff teams.

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?

NFL News
Is Kyler Murray tall enough to play QB in the NFL? A look inside the history of height (or lack thereof) at the position.

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.
Saquon Barkley was a human life raft for the struggling NY Giants in 2018. He's been honored for his efforts by the writers who cover the NFL, earning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Saquon Barkley capped his extraordinary debut season here tonight when he was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year, matching the achievement of wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. in 2014. Fittingly, Beckham presented Barkley with the award at the eighth annual NFL Honors.

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.

Former Giants
Jim Fassel set to watch son coach in Super Bowl LIII. "In 2000, he was the head coach and I was on the sideline," John Fassel said. "Now the roles have reversed."
Phil Simms said Tuesday that the Giants should bring back Eli Manning in 2019 but also draft his successor, and draft him now. And the former Giants legend believes they will do exactly that.

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.

Jan 26 Eli Manning TD passes: Here are all the Giants who have caught at least 1.
Recognize them all?

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.

Former Giants
Plaxico Burress, who caught the Super Bowl XLII-winning touchdown from Manning in the upset of the then-undefeated Patriots in 2008, endorsed the idea of the Giants drafting Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the 2019 NFL Draft.

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.

Former Giants
Eli Apple - NFL Playoffs 2019: Will Eagles target Saints' Eli Apple?

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?

Jan 5 What conditions may Eli Manning accept in order to return with Giants? Giants may want Manning back, but on certain terms.
If the Giants truly want him back but at a reduced price, here is what likely has to happen: Manning has to bet on himself and the improvement he says he sees in the offense and accept less money.

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."

Jan 3 Dave 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.
When Gettleman was asked if he would commit to Manning in 2019: "I'm committed to making the best decision in the interest of the New York Football Giants. We're in the evaluation process." And: "Everything is on the table for us."
Manning had a productive season statistically. He completed a career-high 66 percent of his passes (380 of 576), exceeded 4,000 yards for the seventh time (4,299) and threw 21 touchdown passes against 11 interceptions, the latter figure his lowest total in 10 years.

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.
Make no mistake about it: The end of Giants quarterback Eli Manning's career is coming sooner than later. But with all apologies to those who are rooting with all their might for that end to happen sooner, as in after the 2018 season, it doesn't look very promising.

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.

Giants (5-10) vs Cowboys (9-6) Game Preview
On Sunday the Cowboys allowed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to score an opening drive field goal. The Cowboys came right back with a touchdown, and kept the lead for the rest of the game. The 27-20 win gave the Cowboys claim to the NFC East division title.
Last week the Giants were on their way to pulling off an upset over the Indianapolis Colts. They held the lead for the entire game, right up until the last minute. The Colts needed to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they did so with their 28-27 win over the Giants.
Giants - Colts Wrap-Up

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.
Odell Beckham has a vision for how Eli Manning's career ends and it is not in a meaningless regular-season finale like the one set for 1 p.m. Sunday between the Giants and Cowboys with the star receiver not even in uniform.

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.

Giants (5-9) vs Colts (8-6) Game Preview
Last Sunday the Indianapolis Colts came up with an impressive shutout win over the Cowboys. They ended the Cowboys five game wining streak, and left town with a 23-0 victory.
On Sunday the Giants' fans were hit with a bad weather day. That, coupled with some poor play by their home team, resulted in a 17-0 loss to the visiting Tennessee Titans.
Giants - Titans Wrap-Up

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.

Former Giants
Eli Apple is thriving away from the Giants. Since joining the Saints, Apple, 23, has two interceptions, including one against Carolina in Monday's 12-9 win over the Panthers.

Dec 19 Special Report - All right, the Giants have nothing tangible to play for in these last two weeks of the NFL season. Oh, sure, there's all that stuff about pride and continuing to improve and like that, but they are definitely out of the playoffs and that won't change. Other teams will make post-season appearances, a few of them will win, perhaps even two of them will meet for the Super Bowl title - but not the Giants.
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).

On Sunday the Giants traveled to Washington and things went their way. The Giants built up a big lead, while the Redskins were held scoreless until the fourth quarter. The final score was 40-16 in favor of the Giants.
Giants - Redskins Wrap-Up

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.

No 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.
Shurmur hopes the team responds as well as it did last Sunday. With their top wideout watching the game in New Jersey, they enjoyed their largest offensive explosion in more than four years in a 40-16 rout of the Redskins in Washington

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.

New York Giants backup quarterback Kyle Lauletta has applied for a "conditional dismissal" of charges related to an October traffic stop in Weehawken, court officials said Tuesday at the same time he had been scheduled to appear before a judge.

The Washington Redskins played their game in Philadelphia on Monday night. It was a costly 28-13 loss as their quarterback, Colt McCoy, was injured during the game. It was only the second game McCoy started as a replacement for Alex Smith, who was the original season starter for the Redskins.
A day earlier than that on Sunday, the Giants came up with a surprise win over the Chicago Bears. A last second trick play by the Bears tied the game and forced an overtime period. The Giants scored first with a field goal, and when their defense held up, the Giants had a 30-27 win.
