What it Means
"Nine weeks of focus. Nine weeks for a season. Nine weeks of passion. All of those things. We get a chance to show the world who we are, how we finish and it’s a great opportunity for this team to prevail."
-- Linebacker Jameel McClain
For the Giants, this game largely means the difference between a second half of the season that could include meaningful games and a push to make the playoffs or one that turns into simply playing out the string and developing young players for the future. A win puts the Giants at 4-4 and gives them a pulse in the chase for a playoff berth. A loss puts them at 3-5 and puts the playoffs, and even a shot at a .500 season, in peril.
It also means another chance for the Giants to show they can beat a winning team. They are 3-0 vs. teams with winning percentages of .500 or below and 0-4 against teams with winning records this season.
" ... no one wants to be 3-4. Nobody wants to be mediocre. We're going to have to do something about that and the way to do that is to put yourself in a state of mind...believing is more than saying it, you've got to act it. You've got to act it. If you really do believe that you can win, then act like it," said Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.
