Eagles vs. Giants: What We Learned from Big Blue's 42-7 Blowout over Philly

The 2012 season is officially in the books for the New York Giants.

The good news after Week 17 was that they finished on a winning note by demolishing the Philadelphia Eagles 42-7 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

The bad news was that just after the game, the Chicago Bears defeated the Detroit Lions 26-24, which ended the Giants' quest to get back to the playoffs and defend their Super Bowl title.

Even if the Lions had prevailed in their game, the Minnesota Vikings had defeated the Green Bay Packers 37-34, so that would have blocked the Giants anyway from getting to the playoffs.

The Giants finished again at 9-7, but in second place in the NFC East. The Washington Redskins won the NFC East for the first time since 1999 with a record of 10-6.

What did we learn from the Giants' 2012 season finale against the Eagles?
