The New York Giants continue to lose. They've lost four of their last five games, five of their last seven. What's worse is that with every loss they seem to find a new and interesting (painful) a new way to lose.

And yet somehow the Giants are still in the playoff hunt.

Despite all the injuries, rookie mistakes, coaching mistakes, bad decisions, and every opportunity the Giants have squandered... They're still in it.

Final Thoughts

The Giants are still in it.

In fact, you could probably rank the four teams of the NFC East in any order you choose. I decided to put the Giants last because even though they have the best quarterback and best receiver in the division, and they have actually been getting pressure on quarterbacks since JPP's return...

They are beat up at every position, have no offensive playmakers out side of Eli Manning, Odell Beckham, and maybe Will Tye. They have a defense that can't get a stop when they need to or defend the middle of the field... Ever. They have a young roster making young roster mistakes and an experienced coaching staff making rookie mistakes.

But they're still in it.
