When will Giants finally win?
They lost by only six -- and after four straight defeats by two-plus touchdowns, it's a step. They also had the ball with a chance to win in the last three minutes. But the New York Giants still couldn't get in the win column, with an Eli Manning interception against the Chicago Bears dooming Gotham's team to a 27-21 loss and an 0-6 start. When will the Giants finally get a victory? Should they even try to win anymore?

NFL Week 4: Giants at Chiefs
The Giants -- well, the Giants haven't looked this bad since 1996. The Chiefs, on the other hand, haven't looked this good since 2010. Sunday's matchup of two teams heading in completely opposite directions has whispers of "Tom Coughlin shouldn't last the entire season" in New York (remember how fans wanted him out after a tough stretch in 2001?), and "We've seen this before" in Kansas City. Are the G-Men more likely to bounce back from a dismal start to the season, or are the Chiefs destined to blow a good thing?
Power shift in the NFC East?
Before the season, experts and voters alike liked either the Washington Redskins or New York Giants to claim the NFC East title. Three weeks in, neither has won a game. Washington fell 27-20 to the Detroit Lions at home Sunday. The Giants were embarrassed by the Carolina Panthers 38-0. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys hammered the St. Louis Rams 31-7, meaning America's Team owns twice as many victories as the rest of its division combined. Will the current standings hold?
What does Manning Bowl mean?
Peyton 3, Eli 0. That's the Manning Bowl tally after the older brother's Denver Broncos handled the New York Giants 41-23 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Peyton continued his hot start; although he didn't throw seven touchdowns, his 30-for-43, 307-yard, two-score performance was plenty against Eli, who tossed four interceptions for the turnover-prone Giants. Denver is now 2-0, and New York 0-2. How will the season play out?
