Giants WR Darius Slayton enjoyed the Cowboys’ and Eagles’ collapses

Fans of the New York Giants have had little to root for in this NFL postseason, but many have reveled in the blowout losses suffered by their hated rivals — the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles — in the Super Wild Card round this weekend.

Dallas was overrun by the young Green Bay Packers, 48-32, at home on Sunday, while the Eagles were outpaced by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 32-9, down in Florida on Monday night.

Even some Giants players chimed in on their rivals’ misfortune.

The Giants finished at 6-11 and in third place in the NFC East and were never considered playoff timber this season. Dallas won the division with a 12-5 record and earned the second seed in the NFC.

Philly began the season with a 10-1 record, but then the wheels came off the wagon, losing five of their last six games to fall to the fifth seed in the NFC.


  • Nine of the Giants’ 17 games on their 2023 schedule were against teams that qualified for the playoffs this season.

  • Of the teams remaining in the playoffs, the Giants have faced San Francisco, Green Bay and Buffalo this year with one victory — a 24-22 Monday night win over the Packers at MetLife Stadium in Week 14.

  • The Giants fell to the 49ers, 30-12, in a Thursday matchup at Levi’s Stadium in Week 3. On Sunday night in Week 6, the Giants dropped a close one to the Bills on the road, 14-9.
