NFL Playoff Picture, Week 15: Giants Must Win NFC East

Sunday’s 23-10 loss to the Washington Redskins, combined with Detroit’s 28-27 victory over the Oakland Raiders, leaves the New York Giants with only one path to the playoffs. The Giants must win the NFC East.

At 7-7, the Giants no longer have an opportunity to earn a wild-card berth. The Atlanta Falcons and the Lions are both 9-5 and even if they both lose their last two games and the Giants win their last two the Giants would fall short based on tie-breakers.

If the Giants lose to the New York Jets on Saturday and the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys defeat the Philadelphia Eagles the Giants would be eliminated from playoff contention.

If the Giants win both of their remaining games, defeating the Jets and then the Cowboys on the Jan. 1 the Giants would win the NFC East.
