The New York Giants (3-5) will limp across country, literally and figuratively, to face the defending world champion Seattle Seahawks (5-3) at CenturyLink Field. The Giants lost their third game in a row 40-24 at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, while the Seahawks held off the Oakland Raiders by a closer than expected 30-24 score.
Is the string of injuries for the New York Giants a case of bad luck or poor planning? This week, after Big Blue placed would-be starting middle linebacker Jon Beason on injured reserve, the team also announced that starting tailback Rashad Jennings would miss the contest due to a lingering knee injury.
Many credited linebacker Jon Beason with solidifying the New York Giants in 2013. The team allowed Beason to enter free agency, but eventually re-sgned him to a three-year, $17 million contract, that raised some eyebrows. The team announced on Monday that Beason would miss the remainder of the 2014 after aggravating a lingering foot injury.

The New York Giants have a philosophy of not negotiating contracts during the season. Why this unwritten rule remains in place is anyone’s guess.

Perhaps the reality of a 3-4 record has spurred the New York Giants into reviewing their roster, or maybe it is just a case of keeping options open. Whatever the reason, the G-men invited 15 players to workout with the team, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running backs Felix Jones and Alex Green.
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 (3-3) head into an important clash with the division leading Dallas Cowboys (5-1) with an injury report that has just three members.

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).
