Giants have opportunity to clinch playoff spot this weekend

The 9-4 Giants remained tied atop the NFC East alongside the Philadelphia Eagles, and they have a chance to clinch a playoff spot heading into this weekend’s showdown at the Meadowlands. The Eagles and Giants faced each other in Philadelphia last month, where the Eagles overcame a second half Giants lead and came out on top. This time the game will be in New York, where the Giants are 4-2 this season.

In order for New York to clinch a playoff spot this weekend, they will need the Bears, Packers, and Buccaneers to lose. They will also need to defeat the Eagles as well, which would put the Giants in prime position to win the NFC East division title and host a playoff game in the postseason. The Giants are also currently tied for a first round bye with the Eagles and Bears, but a loss this week would send New York back to wild card position.
