EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Philadelphia Eagles can only wonder what might have been this season. They led the NFC East with four games to go and blew it.
The New York Giants head into the offseason simply wondering what's going to happen after missing the playoffs for the third straight year.
The Eagles (10-6) snapped a three-game losing streak that knocked them out of playoff contention last week. The 10 wins matched their total last season when they won the NFC East, and they had a one-game lead in the division before losses to Seattle, Dallas and Washington made Sunday's finale meaningless.
"We're going to evaluate our team, just like we always do," Coughlin said. "We'll present our information of the pro personnel to the owners and if there's anything else, it'll be initiated by ownership. I'm going to go about my business until I'm told otherwise."
Coughlin refused to say whether he intends to make changes if he returns after a season that he described as disappointing.
"How else do you want me to say it?" the 68-year-old coach said. "Not enough wins, too many losses."
Sanchez was 23 of 36 for 292 yards, including touchdowns of 44 yards to rookie Jordan Matthews and 1 yard to tight end Brent Celek on the Eagles' first two possessions. Cody Parkey made two field goals, with the last giving the Eagles an eight-point lead after Beckham's latest dazzling play got New York within five. Chris Polk also scored on a 1-yard run.
NOTES: Beckham finished with team highs of 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in only 12 games. He missed the first four with a hamstring injury. The receptions and yards were rookie team records and the TD total tied the franchise rookie mark set by Bill Pascal in 1943. ... Manning finished with 4,410 yards, his fourth 4,000-yard season. He also had 30 TD passes and 14 interceptions. ... Eagles RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 99 yards and had 1,319 this season, making him the first Eagles back to rush for 1,300 yards three times. ... Coughlin and several Giants coaches wore NYPD baseball caps to show their support for two New York City officers killed in the line of duty.
