The Giants need help from the Bears

The New York Giants no longer control their playoff destiny following a 45-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. But all hope is not lost. If the Giants (9-6) can take care of Washington next Sunday and the Bears (11-4) beat the Packers (9-6), New York will be in the playoffs.

The Giants could also get in if they win next week and the Saints lose their final two games against the Falcons and Bucs. Obviously, that first scenario is the one Giants fans should be clinging to.
