Four-game losing streak has Giants playoffs hopes almost gone with 7 games to go

With their playoff hopes dimmed by a four-game losing streak, coach Tom Coughlin says the New York Giants need to stick together and find a way a win a game.

Despite four straight lopsided losses, Coughlin said Monday that the Giants (3-6) are close to winning, but they have failed to finish games in the past month.

The latest example was a 38-17 loss to the Super Bowl champion Seahawks in Seattle. New York led 17-14 at halftime, went into the fourth quarter tied and then got run off the field on a day that the Seahawks ran for an amazing 350 yards, 26 more yards than the Giants had in total offense.

It was an embarrassing beat down that has the Giants facing the prospect of missing the playoffs for a third straight year.
