All roads do not lead to the playoffs for the Giants. In fact, almost none of them get them there. Still, the Giants, at 5-8, are not mathematically eliminated from the postseason, even though they have no chance to win the NFC East and would have to get in via an NFC wild-card berth.
At first, the Giants must win their remaining three games, against the Titans, at Indianapolis and in the home regular-season finale against the Cowboys. They also need loads and loads of help. Here is their “best” path to the playoffs:
— The Giants win their last three games to get to 8-8.
— The Seahawks beat the Vikings on Monday night.
— The Panthers lose two of their last three games (Saints, Falcons, Saints).
— The Eagles lose two of their last three games (Rams, Texans, Redskins).
— The Vikings lose two of their last three games (Dolphins, Lions, Bears).
— The Packers lose one of their last three games (Bears, Jets, Lions).
