The New York Giants narrowed their coaching search to Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia and Pat Shurmur, according to a report by the New York Post on Thursday. According to the newspaper, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks did get past the first round of interviews. The report also said former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville and Steve Spagnuolo, who finished the season as the team's interim coach are not being considered for the position. All three remaining candidates are currently preparing for playoff games and are linked to other openings. Shurmur, who is the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, is considered a candidate for the Arizona Cardinals opening. McDaniels, who is the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, also may be a candid...

Feeding America's most vulnerable childrenNew York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants each state college to have a food pantry for students. It's one of many proposals he included in his annual State of the State report. The plan would require all public colleges to either provide food pantries on campus, or come up with a "stigma-free" way for students to consistently have access to healthy foods. Cuomo is asking state lawmakers to provide $ 1 million to the State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) systems to implement the program. Chancellors at both schools applauded the proposal, which could help expand their existing efforts. A 2015 survey done by CUNY indicated that nearly 15% of its students go hungry at some point because they can't afford to buy enou...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Quarterback Nick Foles threw four touchdown passes as the Philadelphia Eagles held off the New York Giants 34-29 at MetLife Stadium. Foles, who was 24 of 38 for 237, took over as the Eagles starting quarterback after they lost Carson Wentz last week to a season-ending knee injury. Foles helped his team clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs. Meanwhile, Giants quarterback Eli Manning finished 35 of 54 for 427 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. The Giants, who haven't scored more than 20 points in a game since Nov. 12 against the San Francisco 49ers when they recorded 21 points, scored touchdowns on their first three drives of the game. Those included a 1-yard run by Orleans Darkwa, a 13-yard pass from Manning to wide receiver Tavarres King and a 67-...

Thursday Night Football: New York Jets run past Buffalo Bills, 34-21

Sports
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- You could almost hear Al Pacino reciting the line he made famous in "The Godfather: Part III" if he were a Jets fan: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." Even the Jets couldn't blow this one. Losers of three straight in which they gave up 14-point leads in the first two and fourth-quarter advantages in the second two, the Jets put together a complete performance, dominating the Buffalo Bills 34-21 on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium. New York (4-5) is still in last place in the AFC East, so talk of a playoff push would be premature. However, the Jets showed surprising signs of improvement in two areas where they previously struggled -- running the ball and rushing the passer. Running back Matt Forte complained after Sunday's loss to the Atlanta F...
