After starting 0-5, the NY Giants have clawed their way back to relevance in the NFC East but there is still much work to be done. We break down the team’s remaining games here.
If the NY Giants want to return to the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2016, they will need to continue their improved play they’ve shown in recent weeks. There is very little room for mistakes and the improved play won’t matter if their future games don’t end in wins.
The Giants have had the good fortune of playing in the historically weak NFC East in 2020. The NY Giants are 3-2 in the division with one game remaining at home versus Dallas. They have won two consecutive games for the first time in 2020 and both have been within the division. The team must continue its strong play on defense along with continuing to develop and improve their offense.
New York is currently 3-7. They are 1.5 games out of 1st place in the NFC East, only trailing the 3-5-1 Eagles. The Giants’ two easiest games remaining on the schedule are their next game vs Cincinnati and their Week 17 finale against Dallas. The four games sandwiched between those two games are all against teams with winning records and playoff aspirations. The schedule has provided Big Blue little-to-no relief all year and the sledding won’t get any easier over the last six games.
Here, we breakdown the six remaining games starting from easiest to hardest games remaining.
