giants would have to lose 1 more besides us
Someone ran a playoff scenario and found the Giants have to lose 3 games, and finish 8-8. Even after beating them head to head we lose on some tiebreak with them.
There is a way we get in at 8-8 with losing to the Giants. But it involves Chicago losing out, and getting CHI, NYG, and DAL all at 8-8. The 4 way tie would cancel out head-to-head tiebreakers and the Saints would get it.
Scenarios for the Playoffs
edit: there is one outside chance
Washington losses 2 and Giants win division
we must win out (dallas must lose one more game )
Minnesota must only win 1
SEA doesn't matter we can't finish in front of them
STL must lose two (no tie break possible)
Chicago must lose out
I think that's it.
not looking good, but there is a chance.
