Antrel Rolle guarantees playoff spot for Giants
Mark Antrel Rolle’s words – the New York Giants will be in the playoffs.
It’s easier for the defensive back to say coming off his team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday because the Dallas Cowboys stumbled themselves. The Giants are just a game back of the Cowboys with four games to play and the NFC East rivals face each other twice, including this Sunday.
As rocky and unbalanced as this season has been, the Giants control their own destiny in the final month of the season.
“You ask will we make the playoffs? Without a doubt,” Rolle said Tuesday on WFAN, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “Without a doubt. We will be in that postseason.”
The Giants have lost four straight games but they battled the Packers, only to lose on a field goal at the very end. Rolle’s talk won’t mean anything if New York cannot step up and handle the Cowboys on Sunday night in Dallas.
