NFC Playoff Picture: Giants can clinch playoff berth, or get knocked out this weekend

Josh D. Weiss-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants could clinch a playoff berth Sunday ... or see their playoff hopes come to an end.

Through a very strange confluence of events, there is a slim possibility the New York Giants could actually clinch a playoff berth this weekend. Let's take a look at how that can happen From NFL.com:

New York clinches a playoff spot with:
1) NYG win + CHI loss + MIN loss + DAL loss + WAS loss or tie OR
2) NYG win + CHI loss + MIN loss + WAS loss + DAL tie

Of course, when it comes to the NFC Playoff Picture there are also a series of counfoundingly confusing circumstances that could cause the Giants to be eliminated this weekend. Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News has all of those, again courtesy of the NFL.

It comes down to one simple thing -- the Giants need to beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, or their season could be over. Of course, no matter what all the permutations are we pretty much knew that already.
