In week 17, the Giants faced many challenges.
It is worth noting that even if they lose 27-13 against the Ravens in Week 16, they can still win the NFC East.
They may also get the third overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Yes, you read that right: In some cases, the Giants may win the division and enter the playoffs, or fall far enough to not be ranked third in the April draft. In short, this is NFC East.
The Giants are the first NFC East team to play on Sunday. They left the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, not sure if their playoff hopes are over after falling to 5-1
Of course, both teams lost, and none of the games were particularly close. Therefore, the Giants who lost 10 points can still enter the playoffs, and for some reason, they can also significantly increase their draft picks.
It’s fair to want to know what is better for the organization-a 6-10 season ended with the playoffs once and for all, or the top 3 picks. But this is not about this. This is the relevant plan.
Let’s look at both, starting with the department.
It’s simple: If the Giants can beat the Cowboys (average 36 points per game in their three consecutive victories) and Washington loses to the Hawks, then the Giants will win the NFC East.
The draft plan for the Giants to get the third overall pick is somewhat complicated.
First of all, it is important to note that in the draft order, when the team ends the game with the same record, the tie will break the rule.Which team has easier The power of the schedule (essentially referring to the team they played worse but still lost) won the tiebreaker.
Of all the teams currently in the top ten, only the Lions (.502) have an easier timetable than the Giants (.506), which bodes well for them.
So this is the situation where the Giants will finally get the third overall pick:
1. The giant loses to the cowboys.
2. The Lion (5-9) defeated the Vikings (6-9).
3. The Texans (4-11) defeated the Titans (10-4).
4. Falcons (4-11) defeated the pirates (10-5)
5. Bengal (4-10-1) defeated the Ravens (10-5)
6. The Eagles (4-10-1) beat Washington (6-9).
Therefore, although it is confusing and requires many bad teams to overthrow good teams, it is not impossible.
In any case, if the giants lose, they will be locked in the top ten. If they win and win the division, they will drop all the way to the 19th overall pick.
What a strange season.
