The Giants are one of the hottest teams right now outside of Dallas. The Giants have won six in a row and have positioned themselves as the solid leader to get the Wild Card spot as it stands now.
Furthermore, their record is 8-3 and are only lower than the division leading Seattle Seahawks. December 11th will be a key game against the Cowboys. They do have a tough schedule remaining, as every single team is still in the hunt for the playoffs. Still though, all the Giants would need is a 2-3 record at least to clinch.
