Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Playoffs? Giants want to talk Cowboys

Don’t ask the Giants about their playoff possibilities. They know they have to beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and that’s what they want to talk about.

“I actually met with the team last night when we got back to make sure we were set on what the plan for the week was,” head coach Joe Judge said Monday. “Our focus still needs to remain on the Cowboys. That’s the priority this week. We remain focused on improving as a team. We have a division rival coming up ahead, it’s a big game for us. Obviously, there are implications. As I’ve said all along, those games right now don’t exist. Until I can talk about any kind of opponent coming up beyond who we’re playing, there’s not a conversation to be had. Our focus remains on the Cowboys.”

Players echoed the coach.

“I’m just focused on Dallas,” said center Nick Gates. “We have to beat Dallas first to be able to even think about the playoffs. After we beat them, we have to see if Washington wins. I’m just focused on Dallas and trying to give ourselves the best opportunity.”
