Monday Morning Links: Giants still in mix

The win in Washington last night leaves the Giants at 5-7 this morning, two games behind Dallas and Washington in the NFC East divisional race. Their chances of getting to the postseason are razor-thin, but they aren’t about to give up. They want to at least make a statement before they exit.

“I think we’ve won five of the last six games,” said QB Eli Manning. “We obviously had a tough loss last week, and we’re right there in there. There’s no quit on this team. We’re going to keep giving it our best shot and enjoy preparing and getting better, enjoying the games and try going out there and win and have something to smile about.”

WR Victor Cruz: “It’s going to come down to the very end. It’s going to come down to that last play and it’s going to come down to whoever wants it more. I think, in this division, it’s definitely indicative of the types of players that are playing in it and how difficult it is week in and week out to play in the division.”
