Comments: “Say this about the Giants: they don't fold their tents. Nor do they take their football and go home. Big Blue might ultimately be going nowhere, but to come back from 14-zip, on the road, after playing like crap, in a season they'll be lucky to finish 7-9? That says much about Tom Coughlin and the character in the Mara family's organization.” - Elliot Harrison
NFC East: No. 12 Cowboys (12), No. 13 Eagles (13), No. 21 Giants (23), No. 29 Redskins (28)
