Two potential NFL playoff scenarios for the Giants

With the Giants beating the Colts on Sunday to clinch their first playoff berth since 2016, it’s finally safe to look at the team’s potential postseason opponent.

The Giants are locked in at No. 6 and will open the playoffs at No. 3. But who that number 3 will be is up in the air.

Coach Brian Daboll’s team will play the Vikings if Minnesota loses at the Bears or if the 49ers beat the Cardinals in Week 17. The Giants lost to the Vikings 27-23 at US Bank Stadium on Christmas Eve. Kicker Greg Joseph made a 61-yard field goal as time expired to give his team the win.

If San Francisco loses and the Vikings win, Big Blue can also visit the 49ers. The 49ers are arguably the best defense in the NFL and this will be the team’s first meeting of the season.

The Giants face the Eagles in Week 18 before preparing for the postseason.
