So Long, New York Giants!

Continuing the trend of home teams in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs, the Giants lost to the Eagles Sunday, just like the Panthers and Titans lost on Saturday. The Eagles took care of Eli Manning’s crew 23-11.

Eli Manning finished 15-29 for 169 yards and zero touchdowns. Manning was touched for two interceptions, with one of them landing in the hands of former Patriots corner Asante Samuel.

It’s a bittersweet feeling to see the New York Giants knocked out of the playoffs today, because it was at the expense of Asante Samuel’s Eagles. The problem with that is that Samuel couldn’t come down with an interception in the waning moments of last year’s Super Bowl, which would’ve ensured perfection for the Patriots.

Anyway, congrats to the Giants for last year’s win, but I don’t know if I could’ve endured watching the Giants celebrate once again.

To be honest, it kind of makes you appreciate the Patriots winning three Super Bowls in four years earlier this decade. When no recent Super Bowl winners (Giants, Colts, Steelers) made it back to the big game the next season, it really shows the parody in the NFL.
