How the Giants can clinch a playoff spot tonight

COWBOYS

The chance for a division title was on the line when the New York Giants hosted the Dallas Cowboys in the regular-season finale at MetLife Stadium, and Big Blue did its job with a 23-19 victory.

Now they have to wait.

The Giants can clinch their first NFC East championship since 2011 if Washington loses to Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football. With the Eagles already eliminated, the NFC East will continue its streak of producing no repeat champions since Philadelphia won four in a row from 2001-04.

Here is a look at the 2020 NFL playoff scenarios heading into Week 17:
