Things to look for:

Neither the New York Giants nor the Washington Redskins are headed for more football this season. In fact, the former has already set a team record for losses in a season. The good news is that Big Blue has already settled on a general manager in Dave Gettleman. But will Eli Manning be with the organization come next September? It’s the end of a very disappointing season for New York, but it will all be over soon…hang in there, guys.
