If they won this game, I figured they were pretty much in.

Now we're in a 50-50 fight. Its never, never easy with the Giants. We're looking at having to go 3-1 in all likelihood. 2-2 doesn't give us much of a shot. Dallas and Washington will both have tiebreakers over us.

Then perhaps you should've watched the penalties called in the game. I am in the same boat normally, but this game was clearly extraordinary.

Then, it doesn't even out.

I'm sorry but when one team routinely gets the penalties on offense while the other one doesn't (But Redskins got a PI penalty, whoopity-doo!), hard to say this game was fair all around.

New Orleans has the worst defense in the NFL and theyre playing in the cold.

Giants better destroy them. they need to pay them back for those recent blowout losses in the dome.

Skins host Baltimore coming off a loss. Good luick getting 207 yards on the ground against them.

Dallas will get shredded by Dalton and Cinci will Crush Dallas in Cinci.

Skins and dallas play each other the last game of the season in DC. Something tells me that game will be meaningless at that point of the season.

Washington and Seattle both have easy remaining schedules.

Which calls are you disputing?

Until the last game of the season. One of those teams will get the L and puts them into 3-3 record in the division.

Both of the special teams calls or Cordile were bad and they missed a blatant block in the back by the Skins on Phillips.

The final holding call was legit -- yet they never called the Skins for doing the same thing all game.

I can go on-and-on here.

Bears are in midst of another 2nd half collapse and injuries are mounting

Bears spot is very much up in air and gives the Giants (And everyone else in race) hope

But I'd say the winner of that game is the one more likely to end up tied with us. And I don't know the 3rd tiebreaker past divisional.

One bit of good news is that Seattle is 0-3 in the Division. We still need to beat the Eagles to go 3-3 in the Division, but I wouldn't count on tiebreakers for the NFC east.

3-1 should get us in. 95% chance. 2-2 and I'd say it drops to around 40%. Somebody will have to drop a big game for that. Have to beat the Saints. Have to beat the Eagles. Have to hope for a big W vs either Ravens or Falcons.

******** spot of the ball which gave the Redskins the 1st down (Even after video review), interference on Nicks and Bennett.

I don't want to point fingers at officials but there were some curious missed and not missed calls on the Giants.
The flags favored the Skins. It's not to say the Giants didn't have any legit penalties but some were ticky tac.

It felt like I was watching a Knick game.

Yeah they gave up on that drive. They should have went for it on 4th down. They were not getting the ball back....

Couple things killed us.

Missed 43 yard field goal.

Cordle's ST penalties.

Holding penalty to negate first down that would have won us the game.

And I have 0 confidence playing the Saints. This is a team that has, not only never beaten Drew Brees, but has never even played an interesting game against him. He annihilates our defense all the time. Blowout city.

People can point to NO's poor record but everyone is forgetting that these are the Giants. We don't make any sense at all.

Didn't make sense for us to win today. It would have been easy the rest of the way.

With the pass defense that the 'Skins field every week, Eli should not be held under 300 yards. What a crime.

He was only 20 yards off that mark.

Hard to get more yards when you're getting flagged and being put into 3rd and long situations.

All they have to do is keep throwing it to their TE. Game over.

X-factor against the Saints for me will be Bradshaw. If a banged up Roddy White can run train on them, I'm hoping some 'Shaw and Wilson can keep us in that game.

giants just dont have good linebackers at all. they really dont do anything well. i mean i like blackburn he puts in a great effort but he's just not a very talented linebacker. boley really isn't that good either.

Nah, Boley is pretty damn good. Blackburn is not and Kiwi gets burned at times (he's really a DE). Rivers, when healthy, is good though.
