The New York Giants' Dec. 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks will remain at 1 p.m. ET instead of being flexed to the 4:25 p.m. ET slot. By the way, the show the Seahawks put on Monday night in routing the New Orleans Saints, 34-7, should concern Giants' fans still hoping the team will run the table and get to 9-7.
The New Orleans Saints-St. Louis Rams game and the Arizona Cardinals-Tennessee Titans game will both be played in that time slot and broadcast on FOX.
Giants still hoping for a miracle
From 0-6 to the playoffs? That has never been done and at 5-7 it looks like the Giants are likely to fall short of their goal of being the first team to accomplish that feat. It won't be for lack of effort, however, as resilience has been the primary strength of this team.
"You can't go back and look at the past and say, ‘We wish we could have did this and could have did that,'" running back Andre Brown said. "We put ourselves in a situation where we're at now, and we just have to go out there and continue to win football games and hope for a miracle."
Justin Tuck: Playing every snap was 'fun"
Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka played every snap of Sunday's game for the Giants -- the first time Tuck has done that since the 2008 season.
"It was fun last night being out there the whole time, because it allows you to get into a rhythm and I think I kind of benefitted from it in some regards. My body isn't telling me that right now, but it was fun last night," Tuck said.
