Thursday’s Thanksgiving games could not have gone better for the NY Giants
The NY Giants’ path to the NFC East division championship got significantly easier following Thursday afternoon’s games.
Because the NY Giants have already swept the season series against the Washington Football Team, seeing Washington dismantle the Dallas Cowboys in the Turkey Day nightcap significantly boosted New York’s chances at securing the division crown.
If the NY Giants beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night, Joe Judge’s team will wake up Tuesday morning atop the NFC East division standings – with a 4-7 record.
The NY Giants only have one remaining division game, Week 17 against the Cowboys, who look like a team about to fold up the tent for the season in the wake of Thursday’s defeat. Meanwhile, the Eagles have a pair of division games (at Dallas, vs. Washington) remaining and Washington’s lone NFC East clash is the season finale in Philadelphia.
Here are the remaining games for the NY Giants, Eagles, and Football Team, along with the current standings:
NFC East standings:
Washington Football Team: 4-7
