EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Zay Jones Jersey .J. - Cleaning out their lockers and heading home for the off-season is going to be a very different experience for the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants.Neither team made the post-season. The similarity ends there.The Eagles (10-6) are walking away frustrated after closing out the season with a 34-26 win over the Giants on Sunday. The defending NFC East champions had a game lead in the division after beating Dallas on Thanksgiving and blew it with consecutive losses to Seattle, the Cowboys and Washington, ending their playoff hopes and making Sundays game meaningless.Overall, its bad, Eagles centre Jason Kelce said regarding the season that saw Philadelphia match its win total of a year ago. Were upset we didnt make the playoffs. Were happy to get a win today. The only thing we can take away is that were close to being a very, very good team. The Giants (6-10) are not a very good team. They have missed the playoffs three straight seasons and their win total is one less than a year ago.Its has many wondering whether coach Tom Coughlin is going to be fired. While the 68-year-old has led New York to two Super Bowl titles in 11 seasons — the last in February 2012 — missing the playoffs repeatedly tends to cost people their jobs.Were going to evaluate our team, just like we always do, said Coughlin, who has a year left on his contract. Well present our information of the pro personnel to the owners and if theres anything else, itll be initiated by ownership. Im going to go about my business until Im told otherwise.Eagles and Giants players are scheduled to meet on Monday for the final time this season.Its bittersweet, said Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, who will be a free agent after this season. It is frustrating that we are not going to be in the playoffs. We had every opportunity to get there. Its over. We cant go back in time.On Sunday, Mark Sanchez threw touchdowns to Jordan Matthews and Brent Celek, Trey Burton returned a blocked punt 27 yards for a score to lead the Eagles. Chris Polk also scored on a 1-yard run and Cody Parkey kicked two field goals.Odell Beckham Jr. capped a phenomenal rookie season for the Giants with 12 catches for a career-best 185 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown. Andre Williams scored on a 1-yard run and Josh Brown kicked four field goals for New York, which had a three-game winning streak snapped.Five things we learned from this meaningless game:SPECIAL EAGLES: The return of the blocked punt was the seventh touchdown by the Eagles special teams this season. It was their third return of a blocked punt for a TD. They also had two kickoff returns and two punt returns for TDs. Prior to this year the Eagles never had more than one blocked punt returned for a touchdown in a season. The last NFL team to have three blocked punt return touchdowns in the same season was the Rams in 1987.MORE BECKHAM: Beckham finished with team highs of 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in only 12 games. He missed the first four with a hamstring injury. The receptions and yards were rookie team records and the TD total tied the franchise rookie mark set by Bill Paschal in 1943. The first-round pick also tied Hall of Famer Michael Irvin (1995) as the only players in NFL history with at least 90 receiving yards in nine consecutive games. Imagine a full season.MANNING IMPROVES: A year after throwing a career-high 27 interceptions, Manning had 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The 11-year veteran completed 28 of 53 for 429 yards, a touchdown and an interception on Sunday, finishing the year with 4,410 yards, his fourth 4,000-yard season.EAGLES OFFENSE: Chip Kellys offence broke a team record scoring 474 points, 32 more than last years mark. The Eagles also set team records with 54 touchdowns, 390 completions, 4,581 gross passing yards, eight 300-yard passing games and 356 first downs. What probably kept them out of the playoffs were 35 turnovers.JPP: Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul had two sacks and finished the season with 12 1/2, the highest total by a Giant since he had 16 1/2 in 2011. He is set to become a free agent after this season. While the 25-year-old said he would like to return, he isnt going to give the Giants a break.Do you get discounts? Pierre-Paul said. Do you get discounts when you go to Macys? You do if you have a discount coupon. I dont know. We will see what happens.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Andre Holmes Jersey . The move - the latest twist in Greeces nearly three-year financial freefall -- is the first such action by any of the countrys major sports bodies.

Louis Cardinals won the World Series last season, but after losing first baseman Albert Pujols to free agency and manager Tony LaRussa to retirement, they opened the 2012 season in 12th spot in the TSN.CALGARY -- The unbeaten Calgary Stampeders appear to have a favourable matchup this Friday when they host a winless Hamilton Tiger-Cats team missing its starting quarterback, but middle linebacker Juwan Simpson is taking nothing for granted. Watch the Stampeders vs. Tiger-Cats live tonight on TSN and TSN GO at 10pm et/7pm pt. "Everybody asks us if were going to take this game lightly and we cant because its the field of unknown," said Simpson in regards to the Ticats (0-2), who will be without several key starters including quarterback Zach Collaros. Jeremiah Masoli will make his first career CFL start at quarterback for the Ticats in place of Collaros, whos out of the lineup with head and back injuries after being flattened by a helmet hit to the chin by Eskimos linebacker Odell Willis in the second quarter of Hamiltons 28-24 road loss to Edmonton on July 4. "I dont feel like Im just being thrown in there," said Masoli, whos in his second CFL season. "Ive been preparing for this for a while now. I feel prepared and confident." Hamilton coach Kent Austin has confidence that Masoli can get the job done. "Hes excited," Austin said. "We have really high expectations for our quarterbacks like other teams do, and Jeremiah knows that and understands that and he embraces that. Its not like he hasnt been in big situations before. Hes a pretty laid back player and has a great perspective. Hes very endearing to his teammates." Masoli took over for Collaros in Edmonton and completed 5-of-15 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown to go with three turnovers -- an interception and two fumbles. "He had a tough outing, but hes a very accurate thrower, can move in the pocket, has good vision down the field, can extend plays - all the things you want in a quarterback," said Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "They do have changes especially at the quarterback position, but they have done creative things with their quarterbacks in the past and theyve substituted in and out." Hufnagel praised his defensive co-ordinator Rich Stubler for doing his homework to prepare the Stamps (2-0) for whatever the Ticats will throw at them. "Hes tried to prepare the football team defensively to see all kinds of things," Hufnagel said. "You just have to play your scheme and react to what they present to you." Both teams have key injuries as Hamiltton will be without linebackers Simoni Lawrence and Rico Murray along with left tackle Joel Figueroa (all lower body), while running back Jon Cornish is still out of Calgarys lineup with a concussion along with linebacker Deron Mayo (groin strain), defensive back Keon Raymond (thigh bruise) and receiver Maurice Price (broken hand). Siran Neal Jersey. "You just fill in and reload," Simpson said. "When you get to this level, everybodys capable no matter how deep you go on the depth chart. Its not like high school where if one player goes down, thats it for the team. Were very fortunate to have depth." Due to the injuries to Raymond and Mayo, Lin-J Shell and Glenn Love will be elevated to starter status for the Stamps. "I expect good things from both of them," Simpson said. "Theyre both smart guys and good football players." Receiver Jeff Fuller is coming off his best outing with Stamps during Calgarys 34-15 win over the Argonauts in Toronto and hes looking forward to continuing his progress against Hamilton. "It was a good win, but weve just got to keep building on it," said Fuller, who hauled in a pair of touchdown passes from quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell against the Argos. "Im looking forward to a big game this week. I felt like we had a good week of preparation, even though it was a short week." Mitchell commended offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson for getting the Stamps ready to take on the Ticats. "Dicky is one of those guys whos not going to hold anything back," said Mitchell, who had an impressive outing in Toronto when he threw four TD passes. "He makes sure that were all ready to do anything that we can do on offence. We have a lot of things that we can do - a lot of misdirection. We have a lot of guys to throw to. We dont ever focus on one person." For the Ticats to be successful against the Stamps, theyll have to concentrate on stopping Mitchell, who completed 16-of-24 passes for 267 yards against the Argos. "Bo definitely brings some energy to the field," said Hamilton nose tackle Brian Bulcke, who played two years for the Stamps before signing with the Ticats prior to last season. "Thats something I noted my years here. As a defensive line, having guys like (Eric) Norwood and (Brandon) Boudreaux on the edge to chase him down I think is really important, so were just trying to get those guys fired up."
