Thats where we are right now.Manning made the biggest mistake Sunday, trying to squeeze a pass to tight end Larry Donnell on second-and-4 from the Steelers 9-yard line with New York down 5-0. Linebacker Lawrence Timmons intercepted the pass and returned it 58 yards to set up another Pittsburgh touchdown.It was a big mistake and New York never recovered. The Giants defense gave the offense chances, but it failed to capitalize.Right now we believe we have the players and the scheme to make a run at this thing, McAdoo said. We know we need to get back to work, we need to get some pads on this week if thats the smart thing and the right thing to do based on the injury report and player health, well do that. We need to play good football on Sunday.The Giants have a huge game this weekend with Dallas (11-1) coming to MetLife Stadium. If the Cowboys win, they clinch the NFC East.New York still has the best record in the race for the wild-card spot, but Tampa Bay (7-5), Washington (6-5-1), Minnesota (6-6) and Green Bay (6-6) are close with four games left.In addition to Dallas, the Giants also havve games with Detroit (8-4), Philadelphia (5-7) and Washington.

There were two other drives between 50 and 60 yards.Against the Steelers, the Giants rushed for 56 yards, and their 178 net passing yards were a season low.
