Giants Now: Updated NFC Playoff Picture


Updated NFC Playoff Picture heading into Week 17

Do you know what's better than meaningful December football?

Meaningful January football.

With two games remaining, the Giants are in full control of their playoff destiny. A win in either of their final two contests would secure them the No. 6 seed in the NFC. If they go 0-2, they will need some help in order to secure their first playoff berth since 2016.

"I think we just try to control our own destiny each week by trying to win a game. The goal is always to try to go 1-0, and that'll be no different this week..." coach Brian Daboll told the media Monday. "I think the best thing you can do is just control what you can control, which is the things you need to control this week. All the other things, there's no real sense. Everybody knows what the game is this week. I think what's the most important is, 'How do we improve our blocking, our decision making, getting off blocks, our tackling, our units?' Everything. All that stuff is really what matters, and that's where our focus needs to be."
