Manning throws 5 TDs against Eagles, but Giants out of playoffs
By Tom Canavan, AP Sports Writer

There will be no repeat for the New York Giants. Not even a playoff berth.

The Giants (9-7) saw their playoff hopes end minutes after posting a 42-7 win over the Philadelphia Eagles when Chicago beat Detroit 26-24 to eliminate the defending Super Bowl champions from playoff contention.

It marks seven straight seasons the Super Bowl champion has failed to win a playoff game the following year.

The Giants came into the regular-season finale needing to beat the Eagles (4-12), have Chicago and Minnesota lose and have Dallas either lose or tie against Washington to advance to the postseason.

The Bears ended the Giants' hopes on a day Eli Manning threw a career-high five touchdown passes.
