"I definitely see us winning these last four and getting into the playoffs," wide receiver Victor Cruz told the New York Daily News on Friday.
"Hey, we're not in the playoffs yet," Ryan told the New York Daily News. "But if we get in the playoffs, they're gonna be talking about four teams. I mean, if we get in, how can you not talk about us? ... If we get in, look out."
One major sticking point for these two fast-talking teams? They face each other on Christmas Eve at MetLife, the home they share. It remains a date on the horizon for now -- perhaps meaningless by then -- but it could go a long way to making truth-tellers, or liars, out of these natural rivals.
