At 2-2, Packers, Pats headed for playoffs; Cowboys, Bills are not -
The Giants' strategy and play selection at the end of their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles was curious. They needed a field goal. Taking the chuck-and-duck approach without Hakeem Nicks was baffling. Run the ball and put Lawrence Tynes in a position to succeed.

Bottom line: With Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin and a championship fiber, they will go 10-6 and win the division.
