  • Must win in week 7

    If we lose this game, I don't see us making the playoffs. We'll be 0-3 in the division, and a wild card team's probably gonna need 11 wins to make it in. If we lose this game, it may be time to start playing for a good draft pick.

    Weren't we 3 - 3 in the Division last season?

        did you not watch last season? ... we lost 7 must win games by your assessment

        now none of us want to go thru that experience again ... well the 1st 14 game part of it ... but you cant just throw out must win ... we are not even at the halfway mark

          No one wants to start 0-3 in the division - but if we lose, we're not out. By definition, not a must win.

            I still have my eye on the playoffs with or without a win tomorrow.

              Not agreeing or disagreeing but it would be fantastic to start to put the proverbial cleat on the throats of lesser clubs. I wonder what it feels like to actually know you're going to win a game you should

                Nope. We've had "must-win" games already this season (IMO), and we won them.

                This would be a pride-diminishing loss, as it would put us in with the pack of "decent" NFC teams.

                  I agree its not a must win but I don't think we want to fall to 0-3
                  Football has been very, very good to us.
                  After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                  But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                  # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                  1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                  2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                  3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                  4-New York Giants!!!
                  5-NE
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    My understanding is that "division record" means nothing. What matters is our record vs. individual teams. So if we go 2-4 in the division, but beat the 'Skins twice, we'll have the tiebreaker over them. It also means that if we beat the Cowboys/Eagles next matchup, then that tiebreaker will be a wash.

                    When it comes to WildCard significance, it's CONFERANCE records that makes the difference.

                    Don't get me wrong, it's very important to win your division games. But I don't think this is "must-win" territory here. In fact, I suspect TC might just keep a little in reserve, rather than tip our entire hand in this matchup.

                      I kinda think it is pretty close to a must win game in that it may well determine the difference between div winner & having to scoreboard watch in Dec & hope other teams win/lose for us to get in. NE wins their div just about every yr cuz they always prioritize winning at least 4-5 or all 6 of their games vs the Jets/Miami/Buffalo. NE never has to scoreboard watch in Dec cuz they already have a div lead of at least 3 games.

                      We lose tomorrow & God forbid Dallas sweeps us, the playoffs could well be in jeopardy. So with 2 div games coming up. it is imperative that the G-men win these next 2 games to not only get to 2-2 in the div, but start creating a gap between us & the other 3 teams in our div.

                        It seems like every week we see "this is a must win game"... while I do agree that winning this game makes the path to the playoffs much easier, I don't know that I would call it a must win. For me, this game is a statement game however, the Giants need to show that they can win the games they are supposed to win, and that they can keep up the intensity they have had the past few weeks.

                        This game is going to be a good one, the Skins are a good team that will bring their best game tomorrow. The Giants have been steadily improving however, and they are getting relatively healthy. It think they pull this one out and win by double digits.
                        My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

                          i agree i wouldnt classify this as a must win but we sure dont want to be 0 n 3 in the div. as a pride factor, however no need to make it any harder to make playoffs its already hard enough to make it there.

                            The Giants rewrite the rule books all of the time. I wouldn't be surprised if the Giants lose all 6 divisional games, go 10-6 and still make the playoffs and win it all again.

                            I'd really like the Giants to have a dominant season. We had one in in '08 when they went 12-4, but lost against Philly. This is a better team than that one.
                            I'd like to see them run the table on the rest of the divisional games and go at least 12-4, and go on to win the SB. I want one of those sit-back-and-enjoy-the-entire-season seasons.

                              It's important game, not must win, but certianly may make things easier on us if we don't go 3-3 like last season. Def not out by any strectch if we lose though.
