The Giants (5-7) look to make it six wins in their past seven as they visit the Chargers (5-7) in San Diego on Sunday. Here are three keys to the matchup.
Justin Tuck (4.0 sacks) and the Giants pass rush finally put it all together last week against the Redskins. But Robert Griffin III has been more prone to sacks this season than Chargers QB Philip Rivers. Rivers has... » more
Hakeem Nicks, who missed Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Cowboys, returned to practice on Wednesday.
The Giants receiver is recovering from a strained abdominal muscle, but a return to the practice field could be viewed as a good sign for his availability Sunday night at Washington against the Redskins.
Nicks is second on the team in receptions (42) and receiving yards (620) but has not scored... » more
All of the trouble started in Dallas. That's where the Giants lost their season opener to the Cowboys, 36-31. After that, the Giants (4-6) lost five more in a row, followed by their current four-game winning streak. A win Sunday at MetLife Stadium against those same Cowboys (5-5) would move them into a tie for second place in the NFC East with Dallas. Here are three things that must go differently... » more
John Mara, president, CEO and co-owner of the Giants, will accept the Hometown Hall of Famers award on behalf of his late father, Wellington Mara, on Friday.
He spoke with amNewYork about the award and the Giants' up-and-down season.
What do you think it would have meant to your father to receive the award?
I think it's certainly something he would have been quite... » more
As optimistic Giants fans are quick to point out, Big Blue sits just 1 1/2 games out of first place in the NFC East. Two teams — the Cowboys and Eagles — are tied at 5-5, so it’s not as if Eli Manning and the Giants (3-6) are knocking on the door of a division title. If do manage to become the first team to start a season 0-6 and make the playoffs, they’ll join these past improbable postseason qualifiers.

It took until Week 10, but finally things are going right for the Giants. They're coming off a bye and carrying a two-game winning streak into Sunday afternoon's matchup against the Raiders at MetLife Stadium. There are plenty of reasons to believe the Giants (2-6) are in for another good weekend; here are three of them.

Now that the Giants have finally found their way into the win column following Monday's 23-7 victory against the Vikings, perhaps some of the pressure is off their collective shoulders. That's an especially good thing as they travel into hostile territory to take on the Eagles for the second time this season. Here are three keys to the matchup.
Nicks-ing it up
Wideout Hakeem Nicks has... » more
Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was on the receiving end of a death threat on Twitter.
Yesterday, the day after the Giants' victory over the Minnesota Vikings, Jacobs posted a screen grab of the offending messages, saying on his Twitter account, "Look at what we deal with."
The threatening Twitter posts came from a now-deactivated account @DMMeBoo, using the name Andre Rayner,... » more
Hakeem Nicks hasn't always been healthy during his professional career, but he has usually played well when at 100%.
Well, he's healthy and playing well right now, and that's why the winless Giants should look to deal the talented wideout if the price is right.
Nicks is poised to get a huge raise this offseason, and he's most likely to get that raise from another team.
It makes... » more
A pessimistic Giants fan will say the season already is over. The optimist will point out that, even at 0-5 and entering a short-week matchup against the Bears in Chicago, the team is just two games out of first place in the NFC East. A win Thursday night won't do much to change their situation overnight, but coach Tom Coughlin likely would take any signs of progress at this point. Win or lose,... » more
