We don't know yet if Sunday was TC's last game, but it sure felt like it.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Sunday at MetLife Stadium may or may not have been a retirement party for New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin, but it certainly felt like one.

The veteran coach, under fire and expected by many to resign following a third straight losing season, had his entire family at MetLife for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.They were spotted before the game wearing "Coughlin's Crew" sweatshirts.

The Giants couldn't complete the day with a victory for their coach, falling, 35-30. They had the ball at their 20-yard line with 1:51 left and no timeouts. There hasn't been any magic around the Giants and Coughlin for a while, however, and there wasn't any Sunday. The drive stalled at the Giants' 42 when a fourth-and-10 pass to Will Tye fell incomplete.
