The NY Giants win and sneak their way into the playoffs.
Call it destiny, call it undeserved, call it whatever you want.
Short and simple: The NY Giants will be NFC East champions.
Someway, somehow, this team will find a way to claw its way to victory. It may not be pretty, and it certainly won’t be impressive. But this team seems due for a playoff spot.
I expect a 60-minute dogfight with the Giants playing their most physical game all season. They will need to show heart, passion, and a sense of urgency and desire to pull off the win.
Add in the Philadelphia-Washington game and the NFC East is one of the NFL’s most fascinating and dubious divisions around right now.
It won’t come as a surprise to see either result go the other way for New York. If the Giants lose and miss out on the playoffs, they have nobody but themselves to blame. If they win and Washington loses, they still have nobody to blame but credit to the team for a weird season, for gutsing out a win against the hated Dallas Cowboys, and for finishing 4-2 in the NFC East.
The Giants haven’t beat the Cowboys since 2016. It has been three straight years, seven games of frustrating and disappointing losses.
The tide turns tomorrow and the Giants will wake up Monday as NFC East champs.
