Giants Homepage

Another one of those what-ifs that hopefiully don't happen:
The official New York Giants Homepage claims the Giants will be in the playoffs "with two victories and one loss by either of their two competitors (they win the tiebreaker over New Orleans), or by going 1-1 and having either the Falcons or Saints lose both remaining games."
I don't see how they win the tiebreaker over us if we win the game against Carolina or they lose against Philadelphia. Both teams 10-6, 8-4 in the conference and 2-2 in common games (MIN, WAS, SF, ATL). Or how do they count the 2 wins against WAS by NYG and the two losses to ATL by us? Would it be 3-2 NYG and 2-3 Saints?
We win the strength-of-victory tiebreaker no matter what happens the last two weeks.
What am I missing?

I also read the Giants home page and think they are missing something. If we had beaten the Vikes we would have clinched even if we lost the last 2 games, now if the saints lose to the Bengals and beat the Panthers they are in the playoffs. That would give the same conference record as if we had won the Vikes game, why would anything change? an NFC win is an NFC win whether it be the Vikes or the Panthers.
It\'s simple the Saints beat the Panthers and they are in.
In all of the scenerios on NFL.com none even list the Giants winning .

There is a difference, because the Vikings count for the common games rule.

I stand corrected, it appears that the Giants hold the 3rd tie breaker over the Saints. So the answer here is to win out.
