Road to the NFC East title is simple for the New York Giants
With both the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Football Team losing on Sunday, the New York Giants can still win the NFC East and clinch a spot in the 2020 playoffs this season. By the way, the Eagles have now been eliminated from a chance at making the playoffs.
Looking at the standings below, Washington will win the division outright with a win over the Eagles next week. they have the easiest road to the postseason.
If Washington loses, the winner of the Giants, Cowboys game will win the NFC East.
- Washington 6-9
- Dallas 6-9
- NY Giants 5-10
- Philadelphia 4-10-1
So Giants’ fans not only need their team to beat the Cowboys but they need a Washington loss. They will of course then have to cheer on the Eagles in week 17.
With how poorly the Giants have been playing this season, I’m not sure if they really need to make the playoffs and get embarrassed by a much better team in the Wild Card round. It looks like opposing defenses know how to shut down their offense and teams have figured out how to neutralize their defensive strengths.
