With 14 games in the books, this year's version of the New York Giants has provided its fans with a season chock full of excitement and disappointment at the same time. For purists, it has been the most frustrating season they have ever seen.
The Giants' loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday was their sixth defeat this season after they were leading or tied with fewer than 2 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that is the most such games they've had in one season since the 1970 merger.
Those six losses were by a total of 15 points. Two of those losses were to potential top seeds in the AFC and NFC. They lost to New England by one point with 1 second remaining, and to Carolina by three points as time expired.
