Here is a quick look at the games that mean the most to the GIANTS this weekend (these games will be updated at halftime and conclusion):
The Dallas Cowboys won last night. With that win, they are half of a game ahead of the GIANTS for the lead in the NFC East. Atlanta won on Thursday night. They are in solid position for the fifth play-off spot and one and half games ahead of the GIANTS. The following games impact WILD CARD play-off chances only for the GIANTS. The Giants loose tie breakers to the Bears, Lions, and Falcons.
Seattle at Chicago (1pm start). Bears lead 14-7. The Bears are ahead of the GIANTS by one game, but neither team is in the play-offs if the Wild Card round started today. We want Seattle to win this game.
Detroit at Oakland (4pm start). Very simple, we need Oakland to win. The lions are currently the sixth and final play-off seed and are one game ahead of the GIANTS.
However, NONE of this matters if the GIANTS win today. A win today and we are the leaders of the NFC East going into next Saturday’s game against that “other” NY team.
