EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Will the New York Giants be a playoff team by the end of Week 15? Step 1 is winning Sunday against the Detroit Lions at a fairly warm but overcast and potentially rainy MetLife Stadium.

Brandon broke down the playoff scenarios earlier, so check his post for all of the things that need to happen.

The Lions will be without starting running back Theo Riddick (wrist) and center Travis Swanson (concussion).

Josh Johnson will be the backup quarterback, with Ryan Nassib surprisingly inactive. Nassib’s elbow, which sidelined him earlier this season, reportedly flared up during warmups.
