The 24-17 win over Washington was not a banner one fantasy-wise for the Giants. They had just 16 first downs and 286 net yards on offense (206 passing, 80 rushing). They were, however, opportunistic and won the ballgame by tightening the screws on defense during the final three quarters.

Player snapshots courtesy of Rotoworld:

Eli Manning completed 22-of-28 passes for 235 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 13 win over the Redskins.Manning started off slow, but was able to find success in the short passing game and had only one turnover. He hit Brandon Myers on a 22-yard pass to tie the game at the end of the first half and led the Giants to a comeback win with 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter. Through 12 games, Manning has 2,995 yards, 15 touchdowns, and is behind only Geno Smith with 18 interceptions. He'll be just a QB2 option in Week 14 against the Chargers.

Back to work today for the Giants. They will practice today out at QDTC in what will be an indoor event given the wet weather.

Not much news today except the roster move placing C Jim Cordle on IR. His roster spot will be filed by Stephen Goodin, who's been a familiar figure here for the past two years or so.

Get ready for a lot of talk and a lot of promises from the Giants this week. It's been just one disappointment after another this season, and even as a member of the media who lives on quotes and news from the team, enough is enough. It's time for this team to play a complete game for the first time this year: win all three phases with no turnovers and blow somebody out. And then shut up about it. Nahhhhh....

Who would have thought the Giants would start 2013 with six straight losses? Certainly not anyone who has been covering the team for any significant amount of time. But, now that it's happened, it's easy to see how it happened and why.

The Giants have yet to figure out how to make the best of their practice time. ?Under the news CBA, there are only so many sessions in which full contact is allowed. This has flummoxed Tom Coughlin and - color me wrong - but the team looked flat, slow and meek coming into the season as a result of not having enough contact in training camp. They were outhustled, outhit and too out of synch to recover from the errors (of commission and omission) that they committed.

Last season, the Giants were the defending Super Bowl champions and the Redskins were riding a red-hot RGIII to a division title. This year, the other two teams - Dallas and Philadelphia - are positioning themselves to battle for the NFC East title.

The Eagles gained 425 total yards in today?s 31-20 win at Tampa Bay. The Eagles are one of four teams in NFL history to gain at least 400 yards in each of its first six games joining this season?s Denver Broncos, the 2007 New England Patriots and the 1983 San Diego Chargers. This is the first time in NFL history in which two teams have accomplished the feat in the same season.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin had some observations about his team's schedule this season. Compared to years past, this year's doesn't seem to be as demanding.

But the NFL prides itself on a level playing field. The schedule and the draft reward the failing teams and make it more difficult for the successful teams to sustain their success.

The Giants finished 9-7 last season and have not had sub-.500 finish since Coughlin's first season with the team in 2004. Since then, the Giants have drafted no higher than 15th and have traditionally drawn some of the league's toughest schedules.

Our man Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast examines the newly-released Giants 2013 regular season schedule. I agree, the pros do outweigh the cons.....


?Look at the stretch from Week 6 to Week 14. The Giants will arrive home in the early morning hours on Friday after facing the Bears on Thursday in Week 6. That will be October 12th. The Giants then have a home game against the Vikings, a short bus ride down the NJ Turnpike to face the Eagles, then a BYE, then 3 straight home games, then a train ride (presumably) to DC, before finally having to play in San Diego Week 14. ?They might not have to board a plane from October 12th to December 7th. That?s a stretch of 56 days

The NFL released their full 256-game regular season schedule tonight. The Giants will appear in primetime five times this season, despite not qualifying for the playoffs last year.

Outside of their required home-and-home contests vs their divisional opponents (Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins), the Giants will face the NFC North (Bears, Lions, Vikings, Packers) and the AFC West (Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers, Raiders).

By virtue of their second-place finish in 2012, the Giants drew the other NFC second-place finishers from last season (Seahawks, Panthers).
