The guys then move on to some local football, as both the Jets and Giants look to rebound from tough Week 12 losses on Sunday. Eric Mollo brings us his weekly Giants report, as Mack and Shaun discuss how monumental the Giants loss to the Cowboys was, and how now even running the table may not be enough for the G-Men to make it to the postseason.
