The New York Giants are actually hot right now, winners of four of their last five games as they continue to try and pull themselves out of the basement in the NFC East.
You would think with the team being 1-7 as they entered the bye week would have them eliminated from playoff contention, but the team actually has an outside chance to sneak into the postseason.
After the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in overtime, the Giants JUST need 11 more things to happen and they will do the improbable. Which is definitely a huge reach but the Giants will make the playoffs if:
Giants most likely path to playoffs:
DAL over PHI
SEA over MIN
CAR loses 2 of 3 to NO, ATL, NO
PHI loses 2 of 3 to LAR, HOU, WAS
MIN loses 2 of 3 to MIA, DET, CHI
GB loses 1 of 3 to CHI, NYJ, DET
NYG beats TEN, IND, and DAL
Giants would travel to CHI for WC game
