The Giants have a massive injury list for the game tonight:

WR 1 Slayton
WR 2 James
WR 3 mix of Hodgins & Golladay
Unless it’s a garbage time TD I can’t see it happening.

Giants entire starting OL out except Thomas he’s still down as a game time decision. Jones won’t have any time to throw the ball.
The Giants are now down:

-Evan Neal
-Azeez Ojulari
-Wan'Dale Robinson
-Sterling Shepard
-Xavier McKinney
-Ben Bredeson
-Tyre Phillips (2nd string RT)
-Aaron Robinson
-Fabian Moreau
-Adoree Jackson
-Daniel Bellinger
-Jon Feliciano
Both starting CB’s out too.

Yep, dunno how we've limped this far tbh. Cowboys flying after smashing the Vikings too, it could get ugly but I'll try to enjoy a sensibly timed standalone Giants game!

I think it'll be a horrible first half with the Cowboys resting a few of theirs with knocks for the 2nd half. The spread is -10 Dallas. They'll probably be 14-21 up at the half but not sure they maintain that until the end.

I was thinking earlier that the Cowboys seem to always beat the Giants, and the games are often in primetime so I have the 'pleasure' of watching them... I'd say I was a casual fan from 2012 but became an avid fan in 2017, Giants have only beaten the Cowboys once since then!

3 good Thanksgiving games, all could have gone either way. The Lions were unlucky, the Giants will want to snap this losing streak and the Vikings/Patriots was a score fest with 5 tied scores I think.

Wishing Justin Fields a healthy recovery and kind of hope he doesn't play v the Jets. We're not making the playoffs so give him time to recover fully!

As it stands, of the 7 playoff berths in the NFC, 4 of them are from the NFC East. Some turn around in 2 seasons where it was the laughing stock of the league

Brock Purdy is now the 9ers starting QB. That defence gonna have to stay healthy if we are to have a shot. Baker has hit the waivers but don't think we'll get him or go for him. If there wasn't so much of a circus still following him I'd take him as backup for some specific scenarios. He's got a decent deep shot on him but you couldn't make it too obvious that it would be that play type.

The Lions are getting tremendous value from that Stafford trade. Goff has been really good and also 100% in terms of health. If the Rams stayed where they are they get next years 3rd overall draft pick. The Rams future is bleak but you'd imagine it will be a complete clearout to get picks in the off-season.

The goddamn Seahawks could do with being less good :lol:

I might be missing something but I don't see the point at all in the Rams going for Mayfield. I know there's little point in them tanking but it's not even a positive enough move to signal an intent/expectation to win, it's just... pointless?

I actually think he could've helped the 49ers, maybe they knew he was never falling to them so pretended they had no interest.

Been meaning to ask my Rams pal how he sees their whole situation going - surely they have to trade away any saleable assets (e.g. Kupp, Ramsey), and I can't see McVay signing up for a full rebuild. Could be really bleak for them for a long time, I know they sold their future to pay for the Super Bowl but didn't see it falling apart so rapidly.

Mayfield will be the fall guy whilst they clear house I think. Only reason I can think of. Being on opposite side of country to Browns will help. The man nearly broke himself in half trying to play injured for them and then they cut him. Think it's messed with his head. There's still a solid QB in there imo but there's an ego to contend with also. I think that's too much downside to a fairly tight group in terms of the 9ers. Wouldn't have minded him to be honest.

Yep, no chance McVay stays. He nearly went to CBS after SuperBowl so he'll hit media and never coach again after this year. Aaron Donald was talked out of retirement so he'll retire or move to a contender where he can rotate out a bit more often. Ramsey will 100% go. Kupp will play 4 weeks or so and then get traded, just to get his trade value up. Stafford could just retire too (too many concussions and currently out will bruised spine).

Not a bad impact from Baker, especially the game winning drive the length of the field in no time 😮

I didn't think they'd snap a 6 game losing streak, especially with the Raiders on a 3 game winning streak but Baker believed!

Could've really done with Dermo's 9ers laying an egg against the Seahawks so that the Giants (I'm starting to believe haha) take on the winner of Buccs/Cowboys... but it's looking pretty pedestrian for SF, 10-0 up with 5 mins to play in the 1st quarter, so Eagles it is for the Giants after they beat the Vikings tomorrow night :P

What? :lol:

Think we suffered from complacency in 1st half. Without a doubt the players are thinking on Championship game already. Hopefully going in behind at the half is a reminder for next game.

Chargers are some clowns

After declaring the game dead at 10-0, I was feeling bad when Seahawks were 17-16 up at half time ha. Went to bed when Geno fumbled in the redzone in the third quarter, was surprised to see that the 49ers ran away with it after that!

And yeah even for the Chargers that's a pretty special collapse, 25 pass plays and only 8 run plays after going 27-0 up!

I don't even care that this is the end of the road, this franchise is going somewhere :D :D :D

And I don't have to watch the fraudulent Vikings next week, bonus.

Danny Dimes > Vanilla Vick

Cousins throwing a 3 yrd slant on a 4th & 8th to end the season. He's in that list of serviceable QB's you can never rely in the crunch moments - Cousins, Jimmy G, Tannehill, Carr and Mac Jones. Put up good numbers, make the right plays but disappear when the pressure is on.

The Cowboys win tonight it's 49ers Vs the NFC East :D Some turn around from being a laughing stock of a divison 2 years ago.

Great games so far in the playoffs, can't but also can believe the Chargers collapse. They were my pick in that game in the Superbowl challenge, only one wrong so far as did pick the Giants to 'upset' the Vikings. I've got the Bucs to also 'upset' the Cowboys tonight even though of course they're the higher seed.

Great news to see Damar Hamlin recovering well, I've picked the Bills to beat the 49'ers in the Superbowl but that's definitely heart ruling head. After their struggle against the Dolphins and the 49'ers second half performance, I'd now say the 49'ers revenge over the Chiefs.

Disappointing that the Giants didn't put up a fight last night, but ultimately there's little shame in losing to this Eagles team. As much as I hate to say it.

This season was certainly the most fun I've had as a Giants fan, looking forward to next season for once!

49ers better win tonight cos there's no way in hell I'm watching Eagles-Cowboys in the NFC Championship game.

Going down early was going to put Danny Dimes and Giants right where Eagles wanted them

Well... this could turn into a bye for the Eagles, 49ers down to their fourth QB.
