EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Getting off to an 0-2 start in the NFC East isn't causing the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants to hit the panic button.

Far from it.

While being either 3-1 or 4-0 would obviously have been better, the Giants can deal with 2-2 after their 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) on Sunday night. There are still 12 games left in the regular season, including four in the division.

Don't' forget this was a team that started the 2007 season 0-2 and went on the win the Super Bowl.

''I'm not concerned about any of that,'' running back Ahmad Bradshaw said. ''We have a great team and we believe in each other. We've been down this road before. There's nothing we can't handle. There's nothing we're not preparing for. Like I said, we played a great game. It's just how it ended, we didn't finish.''

If there is a concern, it's the schedule. Besides the Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins, the rest of the Giants' slate features games with the 49ers, Packers, Saints, Ravens, Steelers and Falcons. comments
