EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Will the New York Giants emerge from today's game with the New York Jets looking like they might be able to make a real run in the NFC East, or will they emerge looking headed to a third straight losing season?
The Giants are, of course, tied for the NFC East lead but have wasted a number of opportunities to take control of the division.
"It's December in the National Football League and both teams have opportunities," said Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. "Because of that, it's a big game, there's no way around it. It's an important football game for both teams."
