Playoff Path

The Giants’ path to the playoffs is now clear. Their only hope is to get the last wild card spot in the NFC. To do that will require all of the following things to happen-

1- The Giants have to beat Philadelphia (with the Bears and Vikings already 9-6, the 8-7 Giants have to win)

2- The Vikings and Bears have to lose. (see above)

3- The Cowboys have to lose to Washington. (This one is a bit more complicated. If the Giants and Cowboys win, they and Washington would finish with a 9-7 record. And, all three teams would finish with a win and a loss against each other, negating the first tiebreaker. The problem is the second tiebreaker is record within the division and the Giants are the only team that has lost to Philly this year. So, the Giants would lose the tiebreaker at that point to both Dallas and Washington. One for the division and one for the wild card spot.)

The Giants game against Philly and the Bears game against Detroit kickoff at 1pm EST. The Vikings play the Packers at 4pm and the Cowboys face Washington at 8:20pm. New York will need plenty of luck to pull off a playoff spot this year.
