And that's not the worst of it.
No, if the New York Giants want any hope of wining the division and getting into the playoffs, they need to root for the Dallas Cowboys.
It's a game the Giants will be watching, even Giants' quarterback Eli Manning, who said "Yeah, of course [we pay attention]. We always pay attention to what's going on in the division. It affects us. I guess at this point we'll be rooting, got to be rooting, for the Cowboys."
Eli admits a strange situation to be rooting for a division rival -- although the Giants have nobody to thank but themselves.
"Well, it happens. I guess we've had to root for divisional teams before, but I don't think I'll be wearing a Matt Cassel jersey or anything, but we'll be hoping they can pull out a win."
So then, if the Big Blue Faithful can stomach watching this game, use this as your open thread.
