Behind one of the league’s best offenses — the Giants (11-5) finished with the third most points scored in the regular season — Tom Coughlin orchestrated a five-game turnaround in his second season as head coach and won the NFC East.
Wild Card: That same offense fell flat in the first round of the playoffs. Carolina held Eli Manning to 113 yards passing, picking him off three times, and Tiki Barber finished with just 41 yards rushing on 13 carries in a 13-0 shutout loss.
