The New York Giants may still control their own fate as a victory over Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens and a win the following week over the Philadelphia Eagles guarantees a playoff berth…but a loss this week could also result in the Giants being eliminated from playoff contention.
Let's take a look at that and what else is going on as the Giants gear up for a must-win game.
The Sword Cuts Both Ways
Of course, a win this weekend and the following week versus the Philadelphia Eagles and the Giants are guaranteed at least a wild card. Dan Graziano of ESPN.com lays out the entire NFC East playoff scenario, but most importantly, says the Giants need to stop leaning on the past if they are going to do anything. Great read there.
Redskins on the rise
You know who is? Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. Along with the Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
Part of us thinks they may be right about the Giants looking up at the Redskins…but part of us thinks this is the exact kind of talk Big Blue needs to hear.
Andre Brown has big dreams
Brown is still holding out hope that he can make a return for Big Blue. One problem: he can't return until the Super Bowl.
The News' Ebenezer Samuel has the great quote from Brown: "I was just like, ‘Hey, I want to ******* play,’” Brown said. “That’s it. Get me there, and I’ll take care of the rest."
All of these story lines have one thing in common: the Giants can up or down, they might be looking up at the Redskins and that just might be a fad, and Andre Brown may or may not get to play in the Super Bowl.
The Giants have two games to show which way they're going.
