The New York Giants needed a win to stay in the NFC playoff race, and they got it. The Giants imposed their will on the Redskins last night, winning yet another ugly and unimpressive prime time football game, 45-12.
“We felt we can play at that caliber that we were playing at the beginning of the year,” said Ahmad Bradshaw, who ran for two first-half touchdowns. “We came out fired up. This was a must-win. I told everybody before we went out: `I need the whole team to come with us.’ And that’s how we played—together.”
The Giants (8-6) don’t control their destiny, but they moved one game behind Dallas and Green Bay in the race for wild-card spots with two weeks remaining in the regular season. –Y! Sports.
I maintain that, top to bottom, the Giants are one of the most talented teams in the league and really have potential to do some damage in the playoffs. Even as a 6-seed. And really, are there two teams more primed for failure in December than Dallas and Green Bay?
