BY THE NUMBERS: Eli Manning has passed for at least 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in seven consecutive seasons. He is the fifth
quarterback in NFL history to do so. The other four quarterbacks to accomplish the feat are Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Drew Brees. ... Jason Pierre-Paul had 16.5 sacks this season and was voted All-Pro. ... Victor Cruz had a Giants record 1,536 receiving yards this season (third in the NFL). Cruz's 82 catches tied for the second-highest total in team history. He also had a franchise-record seven 100-yard receiving games this season.

Well, here it is New York Giants fans. The team's first appearance in the playoffs since 2008. Seems like forever, doesn't it? Especially since fans were getting used to winning.

The Atlanta Falcons (10-6) invade East Rutherford today trying to send the Giants into the offseason. What will happen? Your guess is as good as mine. Enjoy the game and use this for your open thread.
