Underachievers of NFC East vie for at least pride

The Giants can hope for a miracle while the Eagles may have to settle for Andy Reid's last hurrah.

"Andy had a hand in bringing everybody here in," Jenkins said. "Obviously he put faith in us and had a lot of trust in us. We haven't been able to live up to the expectations of the coaches or the fans. We still have to try and give whatever else we can give right now. The only thing we can do is to try and get a win in the last game."

The Giants also want to end the season on a high note, especially after losing 5 of 7 in the second half of the season.

"We're not defeated," safety Antrel Rolle said. "We still have one game to go in the season and we know no matter what the outcome will be after that game, we're going to go out there and fight extremely hard. Like you said, we're playing against the Eagles. We're playing against a division rival, we're going out there and playing a game and trying to be as effective as we can."

Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka still believes.

"It's not all gone yet," he said. "We're still looking forward. At the end of the season we'll reflect and see where things went wrong. But for right now, it's about getting a win and doing what we have to do so if things happen to fall how we want them, we're still in a position to get to the playoffs."
