Giants enter critical stretch of season

NFL Notes

November 28, 2009|By From Sun news services

The New York Giants have reached a crossroads in their season after losing five of six games.

Following a 26-6 loss at Denver on Thursday, the Giants are 6-5, with three NFC East opponents up next on the schedule, two at home.

"We have a five-game schedule," coach Tom Coughlin said Friday. "It's one game at a time with these divisional games coming up. We have got to see how we come back now and rally back from a loss which none of us is proud of."

But with New York having lost to nearly every winning team it has faced this season, a turnaround might not be within reach.

Defensive tackle Barry Cofield said it was "good to know you have control over what happens" because the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles come to Giants Stadium, then New York is at Washington. A sweep of those games would make the Giants contenders again.

COLTS: Chris Polian, the son of team president Bill Polian, was promoted to vice president and general manager.
