    GIANTS' SCENARIOS TO WIN NFC EAST AFTER VICTORY OVER COWBOYS

    GIANTS' SCENARIOS TO WIN NFC EAST AFTER VICTORY OVER COWBOYS

    "So after Sunday
    night’s victory
    , what do the Giants need the rest of the way to win the NFC
    East? Here’s the breakdown:


    -- A better record than the Cowboys over the final three weeks.
    Obviously.




    -- The same record as Dallas the rest of the way AND a victory over
    the Cowboys on Jan. 1. That would give the Giants the head-to-head
    tiebreaker.




    -- Wins over the Redskins and Jets AND, should the Cowboys beat
    Tampa Bay and the Giants, a loss by Dallas to the Eagles on Christmas Eve. The
    Giants would win the tiebreaker because of a better record in common games.




    -- Any other scenario except the ones listed above would mean the Cowboys win
    the NFC East. Tiebreakers in division record and conference record would favor
    Dallas in a few scenarios.






    -- Now, the one caveat to all of this is if the Eagles tie the Giants,
    Cowboys or both at 8-8. Philly would win the division because of a better
    divisional record than the Giants and the head-to-head tiebreaker over
    Dallas."

    From What I heard we need to beat the Redskins, can lose to the Jets and then beat the Cowboys and we are still in as NFC East Champs

    sad it had to come to this.....we lost soooooooooo many close games this year and we beat the Packers as Ballards knee was IN, on a photo from the back of the end zone that was in the NY post..........clearly in, and not touching the white line

    thanks for this! I hope the GIANTS don't sleep on the Redskins, Jets, or Cowboys. This team has a real bad habit of playing down to their opponents.

    Yea, I ran that espn playoff machine over and over and that's the way it comes out. We need Philly to beat Dallas
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Wonder what I am missing dont like second guessing yo, But.
    Giants conf record= 4-6 would finish 5-7
    Dallas conf record 5-4 would finish 7-5 they would get the tie breaker

    If we beat the Foreskins, the Jets game doesn't matter at all. But the Dallas game becomes like a playoff game that we host. So I wonder how Coughlin will treat the Jets game. I'm sure we will play all our healthy starters but we don't want anybody injured or any injuries made worse.
