The Giants Are in a Must-Win Situation: Will They Make the Playoffs?

The New York Football Giants spent most of the NFL season on top of the NFC East division. Now with just two games to play as of press time, the defending Super Bowl Champions find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture. After an embarrassing 34-0 loss to the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday, the Giants are in a must-win situation the rest of the season.

Big Blue plays the Baltimore Ravens, who are sputtering out of control, and the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that has all but given up on its season. Those final two games are winnable, but the Giants have lacked consistency the last six games. Should the Washington Redskins stumble in their final two games, the Giants can claim the NFC East and at least one home game. The problem is the Dallas Cowboys play the Redskins and are still alive as well.

Either way, as long as the Giants do nothing but win the rest of the season, they'll be in the NFL Playoffs. And recent history has shown when they get hot down the stretch, they're usually Super Bowl bound. However, there's no guarantee last year's magic will be with this team. What do you think: Will they make the playoffs?

    Giants are an embarrassment if by some mathematical miracle they get a wild card they should trade it and miss Bradshaw for some draft picks and save face

    I am a huge Giants fan and will be wearing my magic Giant underwear Sunday all day... However to many things need to happen for them to make it and they really don't deserve it anyway!

    They shouldn't. After the embarrassing loss to the Falcons (HAHAHA!! GO FALCONS!), they really don't belong in the playoffs, and God forbid if they go to the superbowl..

    BUT, on a happy note, Atlanta looks like they'll be going :)

    ATLANTA FALCONS

    2 wins since the beginning of November....no way they make the playoffs. They look horrible. The Redskins will take the division.

    In my opinion it's better they lose the last two games, one now after today and get some better draft picks. They have alot of holes to fill. Offensve line, defensive tackles, line backers, db's and a speed reciever.

    The Eagles will be an easy win and it'll be an embarrassment if they lost to them, but the cowboys will post a challenge. Dallas is dead tied with NY in the standings. They could easily win or lose and I'd say they are evenly matched. If the Redskins come near NY then their season is done, the Redskins will railroad them. I don't see it happening but there's a possibility.
