According to this link, a win by the Giants ends the Eagles playoff chances.

But, I've read elsewhere that the Eagles get in if all 3 teams finish 8-8.

EDIT.....Just realized, if the Giants beat Jets, that would guarantee that either they or the Cowboys would finish at worst 9-7....so that answers my own question.

Yeah, they need the Giants to lose against the Jets. They need the Giants to go 1-1 and Cowboys to go 0-2. For the Boys to go 0-2, they need to lose to us. That means we have to lose the only other game, vs the Jets. Make sense?

Ya know it would just be like the Giants (and Dallas) to find a way to let the Eagles into the playoffs .... again.

Bottom line is we got 2 games left and must win them both. What everyone else does then doesn't matter
