Obituaries this week:
9) Here’s what the Giants need to make the playoffs after two consecutive embarrassing performances against the Falcons and Ravens:
- They need the Lions to beat the Bears at 1:00 on Sunday.
- They need the Packers to beat the Vikings at 4:30.
- They need the Redskins to beat the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
- But first, they need to take care of business against a woeful Eagles team… at home… and I’m not even sure they can do that at this point.
Last week in Baltimore, the Giants lost 33-14, but the sad thing was that the score was in no way even close to indicative of what happened in that game. The Ravens outgained the Giants 533-186. That’s the kind of thing that happens in college when a team like Alabama plays a tune-up game against a team like Florida Atlantic. It’s not the kind of thing that typically happens to the reigning Super Bowl champs.
