Do you still believe, Giants fans?

Fan confidence in the New York Giants' playoff chances dwindled with each of the team's first two losses of the 2016 NFL season. When the Giants were 2-0, 92 percent of the voters in our weekly poll said, yes, the Giants would reach the playoffs.When the Giants fell to 2-2, only 37 percent of our voters still believed.

What about now, with the Giants sitting on a three-game losing streak, and dragging up the rear in the suddenly pretty good NFC East with a 2-3 record? Do you believe the Giants will turn things around and make the playoffs?


NFC East W-L Pct GB Div W-L Home Road Streak
Dallas 4-1 0.800 -- 1-1 2-1 2-0 W4
Philadelphia 3-1 0.750 0.5 0-0 2-0 1-1 L1
Washington 3-2 0.600 1.0 1-1 1-2 2-0 W3
NY Giants 2-3 0.400 2.0 1-1 1-1 1-2 L3

FiveThirtyEight gives the Giants only a 15 percent chance of reaching the playoffs. Team Rankings calculates only a 17.9 percent chance of the Giants being a playoff team.

Vote in the poll and let us know. Is a turnaround coming, or are the Giants en route to a fifth straight playoff-less season?
