I've been concentrating on the NFCE, but who do I need to start rooting against to get the wild card spot? Bears and Seattle?

If the bears lose to the packers or Seattle loses later, we control our own destiny for the wildcard (Correct me if im wrong)

We need to win out against the ravens and eagles and will need a little bit of help. Officially we are out of the playoff race if you count the scores now.

really? If we win the next 2 we're in without help as at least the wild card?

Bears, Seattle, Minnesota, Dallas/Redskins (whoever doesn't win the division). Sure enough, those divisional losses are now coming into play. Not all regular season games have equal importance.

Ok, so I'm rooting for Buffalo in the late game and if GB holds on, do we have the tie-break over those 2?

the only thing is Chicago is looking like they will lose today as well!

Seattle, Viking Skins and possibly cowboys may go ahead of us!

Basically, it's going to be a lot of praying. That Redskins game proved too pivotal to lose.

At 10-6 we get in, we're still in the wild card hunt guys

If we win the next 2 we are 10-6. The cowboys or redskins can only go 9-7 and 10-6 wither way so we can still win the division but its more possible to get a willdcard.

At 10-6 we get in, we're still in the wild card hunt guysits a week to week league..Win big one week and get whipped the next or the other way around... Carolina whips Atlanta last week while we whip saints. Atlanta whips us. Saints whip TB. We also have come back with a bad loss after all three of our huge wins over SF, GB and Saints in the following week

Just like other guy said... We win out we get in just like last yr. even if bears win out. We get WC and even have shot at 5th seed depending on what Seattle does..

I ran espn playoff machine. Dallas or skins can win out and as long as we win both we get WC

If we win out we get a WC spot. Redskins need dallas to lose and they can win the division. We can chalk that up right now. Bears are going downhill like we are.

We could technically make the wildcard at 9-7 if bears and vikings end up 9-7 as well. This aint over

It's over.

its been over for you since the week 1 loss..srsly you're a miserable ****, why do you continue to post miserable bull****...watch soccer or something else...I could see if you a little about this game but you do not, you are just a miserable *** clown.

We could technically make the wildcard at 9-7 if bears and vikings end up 9-7 as well. This aint overnope and as bad as we looked today is the reason why the league hates the giants. We had bad losses in both SB winning seasons. We got clobbered in 07 by GB.. 35-13, by Vikings 41-17. Lost to Dallas 45-35 & 31-20 and lost 22-10 to a bad redskins team the same week as we lost to them in 2011 and same week we just lost to Atlanta. In 2011 we lost twice to Rex. We were destroyed by the saints 49-24. We lost to Seattle. Yet in both those seasons we managed to finish strong in final weeks (even though we didn't beat NE in final game of 07 it was a win win) of both seasons.. Got in by skin of our teeth and then??? Rolled in playoffs...... Can lighting strike 3 times?

we control our own destiny right now. If we win the next 2 games, we're in the playoffs via wild card.

Doesn't matter how we get in, lets just focus on these 2 games now

At this moment the Giants have the 6th seed but Dallas just scored and went up on the Steelers 10-17. Romo is on fire.

Giants still control their own destiny. Dallas winning doesn't change that.

Its actually better to win the wild card b/c then we'll have to play at GB instead of Seattle
Say what you want but Seattle is looking dangerous especially at home with their gimmick running game, defense and loud arena.

We'll let the Redskins and Seattle duel it out in the first round.

If Dallas loses today we still have the wild card.

Looks like we have the 6th seed right now. We just have to win our last two games, and lower the expectations. Every time people pick the Giants, they seriously underwhelm. 10-6 is the magic record and we still control our destiny. That's probably good that we lost today because it's too much to ask the Giants to have a very long winning streak. I would rather that we hit the bump now than hit it later because we'd be due for one anyway. Looks like if we end up the 6th seed, we are playing the Packers.

Pitt/Dal are tied right now.

Here are the teams that we are going to compete against for the final berths:
Seahawks (9-5) Remaining opp: 49ers and Rams
Redskins (8-6) Remaining opp: Eagles and Cowboys
Vikings (8-6) Remaining opp: Texans and Packers
Bears (8-6) Remaining opp: Cards and Lions
Cowboys (8-6) (if they win against Pitt) Remaining opp: Saints and Redskins

So it's going to be really tight. Bears and Redskins probably have the easiest schedules. So we're going to need to win out and probably get a little help.

No, if we win out we're in, no help needed.

What don't people get that if the Giants Win out no matter what their in.
Dosen't matter if the Cowboys or Redskins win out.
Either the Cowboys or Redskins would drop to 9-7 and the Giants would be 10-6.
We have tiebreakers over Chicago and Minesota!!!!

It seems that some People don't seem to understand that the Cowboys and redskins can't both win out. The play each other in the last week. S one of them is going at best 9-7. If we win out its 10 wins. Sill control our own playoff destiny for the wild card.

miked1958
12-16-2012, 08:09 PM
Yes ....I ran all possible scenarios with all the teams listed above through the ESPN Playoff Machine. And as was said if we win both games we are in. As a matter of fact if Seattle loses one we can get 5th seed

miked1958
12-16-2012, 08:11 PM
Also if Dallas beats skins and we win out we win division providing Dallas loses once prior to that ..

miked1958
12-16-2012, 08:17 PM
TD steelers!dallas just tied it.. I'd like them to lose but it doesn't matter. If we get them or skins to lose one prior to final week we have shot at div. if not we can get WC as good as 5th seed with two wins and 1 Seattle loss
