New York Giants
Faithful fans of the New York Giants thought the team was coming of age through an early fall three game winning streak. But as the daylight grows shorter with each passing week, are we seeing the sun set on the Giants playoff chances?
The New York Football Giants (3-4) looked to restart their season against the first-Place Dallas Cowboys (6-1) after a disappointing loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles. But New York did not particularly fare well on either side of the football in another losing effort, 31-21 at AT&T Stadium.
The New York Football Giants not only lost a football game in Philadelphia, they also lost two key contributor with season-ending injuries. On Tuesday, the team officially placed wide receiver Victor Cruz and cornerback Trumaine McBride on the injured reserve list.
The New York Football Giants (3-3) jump out of the frying pan and into the fire this week as the team travels to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys (5-1).

The New York Football Giants traveled to Philadelphia for a prime time battle with the Eagles that would help determine NFC East supremacy. But New York started out poorly on defense, and the offense and special teams soon followed suit as the G-men got manhandled by the Eagles 27-0.

The New York Giants (3-2) travel down the New Jersey Turnpike to meet their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1), on Sunday night.

Odell Beckham Jr. made his NFL debut a memorable one, catching a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning with 10:02 left to lead the Giants to a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, extending their winning streak to three games.
Whatever elixir the New York Giants drank between weeks two and three of the NFL regular season should be saved for future use. Not only did the team even its record at 2-2 over the past two weeks; they also have become healthier than we have seen in several seasons. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons come into MetLife Stadium sporting the same 2-2 record but with a fistful of question marks, especially across the offensive line.
