The Giants are hanging on by a thread
Even though the New York Giants are currently sitting with a 5-9 record with two games remaining in the regular season they still have a chance at winning the NFC East and making the playoffs.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network posted the week 16 playoffs scenarios.
As you can see above, the Giants can’t win their division this week, but the Washington Football Team can. They need to defeat the Carolina Panthers, have the Giants lose or tie in their game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Washington can also clinch with a tie, Giants loss and a Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys tie.
If I had to make a bet, it would be that Washington will come away with a win this week and the Giants will lose, which will give them the NFC East.
Of course the NFL is unpredictable and anything can happen. But right now I think Washington is the best team in the NFC East and deserve to make the playoffs under head coach Ron Rivera.
