Tabs on 45: Henry Hynoski
Up next: Southern Columbia graduate Henry Hynoski and his New York Giants teammates will close out the regular season at home with a 1 p.m. start Sunday against NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles. The game will be broadcast on Fox TV. The Eagles (4-11) have little to play for in what is expected to be their last game under head coach Andy Reid. For the Giants, with their slim playoff hopes on the line, a victory is necessary. Either the Washington Redskins or Dallas Cowboys will win the East title with a victory in their season-ending head-to-head matchup. For the Giants to be a wild card playoff entry, they need to defeat the Eagles, then have the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears and Cowboys all lose. The Vikings play the Green Bay Packers and the Bears meet the Detroit Lions.
Last week: The Giants followed up a 34-0 shutout loss to the Atlanta Falcons with a 33-14 setback to the Ravens in Baltimore. In that game, Hynoski rushed one time for three yards and caught one pass for eight yards. On the season, he has five rushes for 20 yards and 10 receptions for 49 yards.
