Jennings on Giants loss 00:01:06
New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings talks about the team's painful loss to the Packers, and a positive future for Big Blue.

Despite not totaling 100 rushing yards in a game this season, New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings believes he still has room to grow.

"I'm confident in my talent," Jennings said Tuesday, according to the New York Post. "There's no doubt. I've got a lot of football left in me. Trust me. I've got an even bigger chip on my shoulder to prove people wrong, and I'm looking forward to it."

Jennings, 31, totaled 593 rushing yards on 181 carries with three touchdowns in the regular season. He added 201 receiving yards on 35 catches with one touchdown.

OBJ's future with Giants 00:01:58
Daily News Live attempts to find the right time for the Giants to offer Odell Beckham Jr. a contract extension.

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz said he believes teammate Odell Beckham Jr. needs to control his emotions more in order to reach his full potential as a star, he said on WFAN, according to the New York Post.

"I think he's on track to reach his full potential,'' Cruz said. "But I think having those outbursts are going to hinder him in some regard, whether it's continued negative press or whatever the case may be. He has to find a way to just control himself and not do those things in such an angry regard after games like that.''

Cruz, who joined Beckham on the wide receivers' trip to Miami following the Giants' regular-season finale, defended the trip as a day off before they returned to practice that Tuesday in preparation for the wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers.

"This isn't something that was a mystery to me or something I was shocked at," Cruz said. "I understood where we were going and what we were doing. It was all on our day off in good fun. So there is nothing with that. I think it gets really over-hyped, for whatever reason.''

Up in the heir 00:02:22
Daily News Live debates the future of Giants quarterback Eli Manning and New York's quest for a replacement if they draft a quarterback.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY

The clock is winding down on Eli Manning's career, though no one knows how quickly. It's probably safe to assume that Manning doesn't have more than three seasons left as the starting quarterback of the New York Giants. Maybe.

But even if that's true, that still doesn't mean the Giants have to start looking for his replacement. At least not right now.

New York Giants GM Jerry Reese's confidence in QB Eli Manning did not waver following Sunday's season-ending 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers or while seeing the offense struggle mightily over the course of the season.

Despite the fact Manning threw multiple touchdown passes in a game just once over the last five (including Sunday) and the Giants failed to score more than 30 points in a game all season, Reese said he was confident in his quarterback.

"Last night he was in a good rhythm and was throwing the ball well, and there were some drops that came into play and it kind of set the tone for things that happened last night," Reese said. "But overall, I thought that Eli played well."

GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Of all the things that could've gone wrong for the New York Giants this season, the last thing anyone expected to malfunction was the offense. They had brought back all their key pieces from a top-10 offense, including their play-caller, their quarterback and one of the best receivers in football.

Yet the offense was a disaster, almost right from the start.

The Giants will likely spend the next few weeks and months trying to figure out how it all disintegrated so quickly and why an offense that was ranked in the top 10 for both of Ben McAdoo's two years as offensive coordinator plummeted to 26th in his first year as head coach. The Giants scored almost a touchdown less per game in 2016 than they did one year earlier and gained about 40 yards fewer per game

Packers LB Datone Jones suggested after the Giants' season-ending loss to the Packers on Sunday that the playoff stage was too big for Odell Beckham Jr.

"Maybe the stage is too big for him," Jones told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "You can't drop passes in the end zone. You get no re-do's in this league. You work all year for this stage and you kind of have to be perfect. Odell Beckham dropped a few big passes for his team."

Beckham, who had four receptions for 28 yards on 11 targets against the Packers, dropped a would-be touchdown in the end zone in the first quarter and had several other drops -- including one on third down that would've given the Giants a first down.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who left Sunday's season-ending loss during the first defensive series due to a bruised thigh and only returned on special teams, was disappointed to not finish the season with his teammates.

"It was very disappointing," Rodgers-Cromartie said, according to Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post. "Any time your season ends like that when you can't go out there and fight with your guys, man, it makes the loss that much worse."

The Giants, who led 6-0 late in the first half, were burned for 38 points, with much of the damage coming through the air.

GEICO SportsNite: Giants react 00:02:00
Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning discuss the Giants' disappointing loss at Lambeau Field that eliminated them from the playoffs.

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. allegedly punched a hole in a Lambeau Field wall following Sunday's season-ending 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card game, according to multiple reports.

Outside of a Lambeau Field media room, where Beckham answered each question at his postgame press conference, reporters heard a huge bang while Eli Manning spoke. Grounds crew members said Beckham was responsible for punching a hole in the wall after hearing the same noise, according to ESPN.

Upon seeing Beckham standing in front of the wall next to the hole after hearing the noise, a Lambeau Field grounds crew member went out to try to calm Beckham down, to which he responded by allegedly cursing at the worker, according to the New York Post.

Quarterback Eli Manning was reportedly among three New York Giants players who were subjected to drug tests following Sunday's season-ending 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Manning, defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins and safety Andrew Adams each reported for testing by submitting a urine sample to NFL drug testers once the game ended, according to NJ.com's Dan Duggan.

In his first playoff game in five years, Manning completed 23 of 44 passes, throwing for 299 yards, one touchdown, one interception and one fumble in the game. Hankins recorded three total tackles and a sack, while Adams.did not record a tackle.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Odell Beckham Jr. wants desperately to be considered the biggest of big-time performers. He insists on being in the spotlight. He craves everyone's attention.

That's why it was so shocking -- disappointing, really -- that on the biggest stage of his life, Beckham came up so small.

Justin Pugh, Victor Cruz and Sterling Shepard react to the Giants' lopsided defeat to the Green Bay Packers.

The New York Giants were outscored 24-0 over the final 18 minutes and were eliminated from the playoffs with a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's wild-card game at Lambeau Field.

Eli Manning threw for 299 yards with one touchdown, one interception and one fumble, while the Packers held Odell Beckham Jr. to four catches for 28 yards on 11 targets.

Aaron Rodgers threw three of his four touchdown passes to Randall Cobb, including a 42-yard Hail Mary right before halftime that turned a one-point Packers lead into a 14-6 game.

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin -- This will likely be the coldest game most of the Giants have ever played. It'll be the kind of weather that makes players wish for the game to be over. It can leave coaches red-faced for something other than screaming at the refs.

It's dangerous. It's uncomfortable. It can even be disruptive.

There's a lot more to the playoff history between the Giants and Packers than a scarlet-faced Tom Coughlin standing on a frigid sideline in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Jan. 20, 2008, in New York's numbing overtime win in the NFC championship game.

The win in temperatures that felt like minus-23 with the wind-chill factor catapulted the Giants to their third Super Bowl title two weeks later. A fourth would follow after the 2011 season, with New York again stunning the Lambeau Field faithful with a 37-20 win in a second-round playoff game over a Packers team that went 15-1 in the regular season.

That's recent history. The postseason story between two of the NFL's oldest franchises dates to 1938, and the annals of the seven playoff games between them is rich.

Despite the Giants beating the Packers in the playoffs twice in the last decade, Green Bay is not concerned with those efforts as it heads into the Wild Card round this year, according to head coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. 

McCarthy said Eli Manning had great performances in those games at Lambeau Field, but reiterated that this year's Giants are what he's paying more attention to. Manning was 18-of-35 for 199 yards against the Packers in a 23-16 Giants loss on Oct. 9.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The New York Giants' road to Super Bowl LI begins in Green Bay, the site of two of the greatest triumphs of Eli Manning's career.

Their trip to Lambeau Field became official hours after the Giants finished up their 11-5 season with an impressive 19-10 win in Washington on Sunday afternoon. When the Packers (10-6) defeated the Detroit Lions 31-24 Sunday night, they clinched the NFC North title and the No. 4 seed in the NFC. That set up a date with the fifth-seeded Giants in the wild-card round Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET.

The Packers, who have won six in a row, finished 10-6 and are the No. 4 seed following their 31-24 win over the Lions on Sunday at Ford Field.

The NFL made it even simpler. The Giants can clinch a playoff spot in Week 16 if any of these five things happen:

The NFL is looking into the situation involving Giants OT Ereck Flowers pushing a reporter after Sunday night's game, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

It is unclear if Flowers' shove of ESPN's Jordan Raanan is punishable under the league's personal conduct policy. The policy states that players can be subject to discipline for "violent or threatening behavior toward another employee or third party in any workplace setting."

Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdowns passes in an otherwise choppy night for the Green Bay offense, and the Packers' defense rattled the New York Giants and limited Odell Beckham Jr. in a 23-16 victory Sunday night.

Rodgers was 23 of 45 for 259 yards and also threw two interceptions. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams each had highlight-reel touchdown catches to help the Packers build an 11-point halftime lead.

But the offense was mired by uncharacteristic drops, and couple of big plays were called back by penalties. Mason Crosby kicked three field goals, including two in the fourth quarter.

It appears the Giants will be facing backup QB Scott Tolzien vs the Packers this week. Last Sunday vs the Eagles, Tolzien went 24/39 for 280 yards with a TD and two INTs. It was his first regular-season action as a pro.

For those interested, Tolzien was signed by the San Diego Chargers in 2011 as a UDFA out of Wisconsin. He was cut after preseason and signed by the 49ers, where for the next two seasons served as their third QB behind Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick. The Packers scooped him up after the Niners released him this past August. He was elevated from the practice squad on Nov 5.

At Wisconsin, Tolzien was the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given annually to the nation's outstanding senior or fourth year quarterback in college football. He was chosen over Andy Dalton, Kaepernick and Christian Ponder, so he appears to be capable enough.

On third and fourth down plays, Manning was 7-of-9, and all three of his touchdown passes came on third downs. Manning had been 0-3 against the Packers in the regular season before this win.

Kel Dansby: The Giants will return from this bye week refreshed and refocused but it wont be enough to pull out the win over the Packers. Eli will find a way to make the game close late in the 4th quarter but the defense will give up points on the last drive and the Giants will fall short at home.

The Giants dusted off the 15-1 Packers last January in the NFC Playoffs en route to the Super Bowl. Green Bay called that win lucky. This past summer, in an interview with YaHoo Sports, Packers LB Clay Matthews said:

"We picked the most inopportune time to play our worst ball. The fact is, they didn?t beat us; we beat ourselves. We need to play our best ball when it counts. This year, I expect us to be right back where we should be.?
The Giants, naturally didn't really buy into Matthews' assessment. At the time, DE Justin Tuck simply said the matter would be settled on the field. Yesterday, Tom Coughlin was asked the difference between last year's road playoff win and the regular season home loss to Green Bay:

"Well, I think we were playing better. Obviously, we played very, very well that day and quite frankly we were plus-three in Green Bay. We were minus-one here and plus-three in Green Bay."
Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy was asked if losing to the Giants in the playoffs last year has anything to do with this year"
"I don?t think so. It?s part of our preparation. I think it?s only natural when you play a team the prior year, and obviously we played the Giants twice last year, it?s part of our video study. That?s really about as far as it goes. We?ve had the offseason to deal with how our season ended and we?re really just focused on the video study and what they?ve done to date. We?re going to come out and play our game."

This is a case of me connecting the dots. Former Giant RB Ryan Grant, who was traded to the Green Bay Packers before the 2007 season for a sixth-round draft pick, is reportedly ready to switch teams.

The Giants turned the tables on the Packers tonight, playing a clean game and not allowing the Packers to do what they do best - create turnovers and cash them in for points. Instead, it was the Giants who did the cashing in.

Had the officials done their job better, this would have been a shocking blowout in the Blue's favor. The Giants still dominated the action in lieu of it all.

Aaron Rodgers may be the league MVP this year, but Eli Manning was the top dog in this game, registering a 114.5 QB rating to Rodgers' 78.5. ?He threw three TDs to Rodgers' two and his Giants had five plays of 20 yards or more. The Packers, famous for their quick strikes that go for big yardage, only had two plays of 20 or more yards.

The Giants are well aware of QB Aaron Rodgers' improvisational skills and his legendary escapability. They know about how players like LB Clay Matthews and WR Jordy Nelson have to be accounted for at all times. They know that WR Donald Driver still has gas in that old tank of his and that RB John Kuhn can hurt them by catching the ball out of the backfield.
