Green Bay (12-0) and San Francisco (10-2) are in the North and West. New Orleans (9-3) is a week away from clinching the South. The East will come down to the Giants and the Cowboys (7-4).
This Sunday's game is a must-win for the Giants. A loss wouldn't eliminate them, but it would put them on the ropes with a standing-8 count.
If the Giants can't win the division, they will have to navigate the wild fray that awaits them in the Wild Card race. They will need a sea of help.
The Bears, Falcons and Lions are all 7-5. The Seahawks are a longshot, but they have a head-to-head advantage over the Giants. Arizona (5-7), is surging at the right time.
The key for the Giants is to win this week. That will put them in the driver's seat in the East. Lose and they could be left at the curb.
