Giants back in playoff hunt with 27-13 win


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Dec. 10, 2006) -- Chris Weinke couldn't turn around Carolina's disappointing season. Tiki Barber and Eli Manning helped revive the New York Giants' playoff hopes.


Barber rushed for 112 yards, Manning threw three touchdown passes and the Giants snapped a four-game losing streak with a 27-13 win over the banged-up Panthers.


Weinke, making his first start in more than four years in place of the injured Jake Delhomme, threw for a team-record 423 yards, but had three second-half interceptions. He also was undone by drops and a nonexistent running game as the Panthers (6-7) lost their third straight.


While most of the attention was on Delhomme's sprained right thumb that forced him to miss his first game in four seasons, the Panthers' injury-plagued defense proved to be no match for the Giants (7-6), who remained in the top spot in the NFC wild-card race.


Barber went over 10,000 career yards rushing in the second quarter on the way to his fifth 100-yard game of the season.


Manning had his second solid outing in a row, throwing a 2-yard touchdown pass to David Tyree midway through the third quarter to make it 27-10.


The touchdown was set up after the first of Gibril Wilson's two interceptions of Weinke. The 34-year-old former Heisman Trophy winner, who hasn't been a full-time starter since Carolina's 1-15 season in 2001, completed 34 of 61 passes, but struggled with his accuracy in the second half.


Kevin Dockery picked off Weinke in the fourth quarter, sending most of the crowd home.


Weinke, who had thrown 13 passes in the past four seasons, had at least six different players drop passes. He surpassed Steve Beuerlein's record of 373 yards passing against Green Bay in 1999, but it didn't stop the downward spiral of Carolina's once promising season.

Last two games, Manning has 5 TD, 0 INT. He also tied the game last week late. So there's nothing wrong with him. There IS something wrong with the Giant WRs who keep dropping catchable passes. Discussion?

Next week versus the Eagles is another big game. The Giants must win every game from here on out. The Giants are getting healthy, Osi had a very well played game, and Eli has been playing better. Eli always had incredible long passing abilities, though he has strugged with the short to medium range passes in his career. I agree that the wide receivers need to help out, but the most important aspect of the Giants has and always will be the defense. The Giants offense doesn't seem to have much of a problem, only the occassional dropped passes, as you have pointed out Jonah, and a few bone-head turnovers. If the defense continues to rush the passer, as they did tody, and MAKE PLAYS as Gibril Wilson did today, the Giants should be in excellent shape to make the playoffs and possibly make noise in the playoffs. Having key tie-breakers really helped out the Giants in this recent slump.

Now this is interesting: if (a big if) the Saints win tonight, the Giants only trail by 1 in the division, and they're currently in possession of the 2nd tiebreaker (win pct. in division). If NO beats Dallas tonight, the Giants still have a shot at the division. If not, the WC is their only hope.

The Eagles game, consequently, is big for 2 reasons. A victory against PHI basically locks up a WC for the Giants barring a catastrophe. The second reason is that it would give the Giants 4 wins in the NFC East, officially clinching the tiebreaker over Dallas (who cannot have a better than 3-3 record in the division).

I'm not banking on the division, but it is still winnable (but not if Dallas wins tonight).

Hopefully, the Giants continue to face Chris Weinke, because the Giants DBs kept begging him to beat him. A lot of bad throws (especially that one to an open Keyshawn Johnson... and that dropped TD pass by Brown...) helped the Giants today.

Well I didn't actually get the game up here today so I can't comment on that.

That said, I'll just restate the obvious: tonight's NO/DAL game has HUGE implications for the NFC East.

The Giants could catch a huge break here if NO wins.

The Saints offense looks pretty dang sharp.
