Not to be....the Bucs aren't ready for prime time....fell apart late.....

Giants are about 95% in......will likely play either the Lions again, or the Packers in the 1st round....the Packers were very lucky to win their game yesterday......

Don't need to see the Seahawks at their place....even though they are struggling, a bad matchup for the Giants.

Yep, and as a FSU/Winston fan...I was not surprised to see his head butt late.
Stupid, stupid play...but not at all surprising.
Tough kid, mad skills, high "football x and o IQ", otherwise.....

He got rattled late in that game....the Dallas pass rush [where did that come from] got to him...he made some seriously bad throws.....

If the Cowboys can get pressure on opposing QB's....they will be a tough out......however if Prescott stumbles at all....you know Jerry wants Romo in there.......

Man I hope the Giants keep winning all the way to Houston...will help make up for the suckfest that is URI basketball......

Hurley knows basketball but he's not getting it across to his players...in any way......and that's 100% on him......

Speaking of Dallas D...WHERE did this David Irving dude come from??? They said last night he only plays about 40% of the D plays per game? Um...WHY??? He looked like an easy NFL D-POY last night...and I don't even remember him playing against the Giants.

Twisted, if you see this...maybe you have some Irving insight? Have they been hiding this guy? Did he just learn how to play last week? I don't get it...he was unstoppable last night...

He recently switched from DT to DE so there is some learning curves, you saw vs Tampa the potential he has. While he's at 40% for the year he's really more about 50% (didn't play much at the beginning of the year and only played 2 snaps vs Cleveland before an ejection)

Seems he basically sealed the deal for them late vs TB - serious potential. I was afraid he was going to come tackle me in my living room and cause a beer fumble. The guy was a monster out there. I rarely watch DL guys, but will be looking for that dude next time I see the cowboys play.

you should look up his stats against GB earlier this year.

in 19 snaps he had a sack, 3 tackles, 3 FF (1 he recovered and 1 recovered by the Cowboys)

Also, I believe Irving was a free agent before the start of the 2015 season. Any team could have had him.

Wasn't Irving playing against the 3rd stringer for Tampa? If so, that made him look even better than he is......

Eli has to be better in crunch time....he hasn't been this year, the D has bailed him out......

They missed Jenkins on defense.....

Also they've been good in the red zone this year....not last night though.

One too many turnovers......

Can't win all the close ones....better now than in the playoffs.

Giants only need one out of eight things to happen to make the playoffs....4 teams playing this weekend...only one needs to lose....my guess is Tampa against NO.....normally I would think Detroit would lose at Dallas, but the Cowboys don't need to win another game...so they will likely take their foot off the gas and rest guys....

And they drop to 8-3 in games decided by one score or less this year. I think I''ll take it....

Eli needs to do what Brady does......if his receivers are covered and he's out of time...throw the ball away...stop trying to force the ball.

That's why Brady doesn't turn the ball over......makes the opponent try and score on long drives instead of a short field [or worse-pick 6's].

A punt beats a pick...almost every time.

Helps the defense out big time...also why the Pat's opponents don't score a lot of points....and since the Giants have a good defense, it makes it easier for them.

It's football 101...Manning the gunslinger doesn't work...and he's not getting any younger.....he doesn't have big receivers....also if Beckham gets hurt, they're toast.....

He may not have 'big' receivers, but I'd put the quality of the Cruz, Beckham, Shepard trio up against any other three.
While Beckham may not be the biggest dude, would take my chances with him on most any 50-50 ball...

Looks like the playoff Dance card is almost set.....my guess is the Redskins will get in over the Lions, who will lose to Dallas and GB next week to miss out........the Giants have nothing to play for against the Skins while Wash will have everything to play for......

The AFC to me looks like a foregone conclusion....the Pats will waltz their way to the SB beating the Steelers in the title game.......

Giants have no easy path...either the Packers or Seahawks first...then the Cowboys again if they get there......

Detroit gagged it up big time last night......Lions fans must be sick.....I doubt they beat GB.......

Manning, Beckham, and the walking wounded need to sit this week.....no use getting hurt for nothing......the Redskins won't hold back that's for sure.....

Giants looked good in the first half today.....then it looked like they were packing it in and giving the game to the Redskins late.....then they made a play on D [where else?] and won the game......

They don't make many style points on offense...but they do just enough.....they've got to score in the 20's to beat the Packers next week though...unless it's the Lions who they should beat.

so....my only option was to watch the Giants here (Costa Rica) in Spanish...good grief...could only handle it in small doses. Announcers help...even bad ones (as long as you can understand the language). The only English spoken during the entire game was by Gene Steratore....would be like 5 minutes of Spanish...then zoom to Gene..."Holding, offense number 76...still second down"

I have my doubts the offense can play well enough to beat the Packers, Cowboys, and likely Falcons to get to Houston......

At some point you have to score points, you know?

Need some O line help for next season......and a playmaking TE would help....the D will be fine......

Not tonight....Giants had chances to build a nice early lead but didn't....then the D lets them down......nice season but they need some pieces on offense for next season.....they should be very good I think.

No pass rush as the game went on....gave Rodgers all day to throw.....can't do that. Need JPP back.....pay the man.
