Magic Number: 9


With another Giants win yesterday, the magic number for them to clinch the division has dropped to single digits and sits at nine.

For those of you who don’t know what the magic number is, it represents any combination of Giants wins and Redskins losses (since they are the 2nd place team) that it takes to eliminate the second place team from winning the division. So any number of Giants win and Redskins losses that equals nine will give the NFC East crown to the New York Giants.
