Scratching and clawing their way into the postseason last year, the Giants are doing everything they can to avoid another thrilling ending. Victor Cruz would be just fine with a less dramatic NFC East finish.
With the Giants holding a two-game lead in the division, a win Monday night over the second-place Redskins would go a long way toward lessening the drama.
“I feel great about this team,” Cruz told Mike Francesa on his weekly spot on WFAN. “I think we’re hitting our stride once again at the perfect time, and we just have to continue it. We understand exactly where we’re at. We understand where a win on Monday night would put us as far as the division, and we want to take advantage of it. We want to take advantage of that opportunity and not make it a nail-biter at the end of the season so Giants fans can kind of relax a little bit.”
Cruz knows nothing will come easy for the Giants against quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“He’s a unique player,” Cruz said. “He’s special. We saw that the first time we played them – how special he is – and it’s going to be tough not just for this upcoming Monday night but for years to come. We’re going to have to see him for a long time, and we’re going to have to be ready to play.”
