The Giants still control their postseason fate.

A road victory over the Washington Redskins in the finale on New Year's Day would clinch their first berth since winning it all in 2011. However, Big Blue might already have a Wild Card spot locked up by the time kickoff rolls around at FedEx Field. There's still a full slate of games this weekend that could ensure Ben McAdoo's first season as head coach doesn't end in Week 17.

"That's the most important thing, it's in our hands," wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said. "We know we had a couple of opportunities in the end to make some plays and we just didn't come up with it [against the Eagles]. It's not the end of the season. We still have another game left to play. We just have to wait and see how things play out this weekend and go take care of business next weekend."
