The New York Giants (8-6) are in jeopardy of reaching the playoffs this year. They have made the playoffs the last five consecutive seasons and can help themselves with a win over the visiting Carolina Panthers this Sunday. Carolina has no chance of making the playoffs and is looking to play spoilers and close their season on a positive note. In order for the Giants to make the playoffs they will need to win their next two weeks and need Dallas or Green Bay to lose at least once in their final two games. Carolina (6-8) is coming off a solid win over Brett Farve and the Minnesota Vikings last week with backup quarterback Matt Moore throwing for 299 yards and three TDs, both career highs. Aside from personal statistics and possibly Coach Fox’s job, the Panthers have virtually nothing to play for, unlike the Giants who are in a must win situation and will play Minnesota in the season finale. New York quarterback Eli Manning his 2-0 in the regular season versus Carolina and has thrown for six scores and no interceptions in the last two games. This will be the last game at home for the Giants as they are moving, along with the Jets to a new $1.6 billion Meadowlands stadium scheduled to open in April. Carolina is looking to avoid its first four-game road-losing streak since its stretch September 29 – November 27, 2002.
