It is a cold and blustery day in East Rutherford, N.J., with temperatures in the mid-30s and wind gusts of 15-25 mph making it feel like it is in the low 20s.
ESPN’s Football Power Index projects the Giants with an 83.4 percent chance of making the playoffs. FiveThirtyEight projects a 76 percent chance the Giants will reach the playoffs. Sunday, though, is a key game for the Giants.
Entering Sunday, the Giants have the NFL’s most difficult remaining schedule. Their final eight games will be against opponents with a combined winning percentage of .633. The Indianapolis Colts, who visit MetLife Stadium on New Year’s Day, are second with an opponents’ winning percentage of .611.
