Will the New York Giants’ flickering dream of going from 0-5 to NFC East champions remain alive after Sunday? There are a few ways that could happen, but the 5-9 Giants could help themselves the most by finding a way to upset the 9-5 Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore at 1 p.m. ET.
The Giants are 10.5-point underdogs to Lamar Jackson and Co.
The Giants are one game behind the 6-8 Washington Football Team, and tied with the 5-9 Dallas Cowboys. A win Sunday by the Giants and losses by Washington and Dallas would catapult the Giants back into first place in the NFC East with a week to go in the regular season. A loss Sunday and a Washington victory over the Carolina Panthers and the Giants would be eliminated.
Quarterback Daniel Jones, who has missed two of the last three games after suffering hamstring and then ankle injuries, is reportedly going to be back in the Giants’ starting lineup.
Below, everything you need to know about Sunday’s game.
