Giants Seek Respectability Against Bears In Thursday Night Contest

The executives at NFL Network probably had this game circled during the summer. Two longtime NFL franchises, each with a storied past; fighting for position in the NFC playoff picture. Instead Thursday Night’s contest pits a winless New York Giants squad (0-5) against a reeling Chicago Bears team coming off two consecutive losses after starting the season 3-0.

Keidel: The Book Of Eli, Written By Peyton

You laugh now, but there was a time, very recently, when it was a debate. There was a time, when we thought the kid had commandeered the throne. There was a time when, when we thought it was the dawn of one empire, and the dusk of another.

Giants, Eagles Both Desperate For A Win

The only thing that separates the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is Philly’s surprise win over the Washington Redskins on opening day. While the G-men have dropped four straight to open the 2013 NFL campaign, the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including a 54-20 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Both teams are focused on playing 60 minutes of football in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s first tilt in the Meadowlands.

Kansas City Chiefs Rout Hapless New York Giants 31-7

The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.

New York Giants At Kansas City Chiefs: Two Teams Going In Opposite Directions

The Kansas City Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last year at 2-14, so after three weeks of the regular season, KC has already passed their win total from last year. The New York Giants were supposed to challenge for the NFC East title this year, but after Sunday’s shutout loss to the Carolina Panthers, New York has dropped to 0-3. Kansas City looks for the momentum to continue, while New York desperately looks for a “W.”

Carolina Panthers Rout Winless New York Giants 38-0

After Sunday’s shutout loss to the previously winless Carolina Panthers, no one can argue that Big Blue hasn’t earned its position at the bottom of the NFC East standings. After all, the G-men allowed the Panthers to set a team record with seven sacks of Eli Manning. Panthers quarterback tossed three touchdown passes as Carolina thoroughly embarrassed New York 38-0.

Giants, Panthers Look For Initial Win In Critical Early Season Matchup

The Carolina Panthers have been a victim of early season bad luck, while the New York Football Giants have been a victim of their own poor play. Can the Giants defense slow down the Panthers Cam Newton and Steve Smith, in order to get their first win of the young season?

Manning, Moreno Power Broncos Past Listless Giants

The New York Football Giants often refer to “Giants Football” which denotes an ability to run the ball and play intelligently. For the first two games of the NFL season, the Giants have demonstrated neither, as well as an alarming rate of turnovers. New York fell to 0-2 as Denver scored 28 second half points to put away the Giants 41-23 in the New Jersey Meadowlands on Sunday afternoon.

Giants, Broncos Nursing Key Injuries Heading Into Sunday’s Contest

The Giants will face the Denver Broncos on Sunday who, thanks to their Thursday night season opener against the Ravens, have had 10 days to rest. Both teams are nursing key injuries, but will the extra days off give Denver the leg up in the contest?
