The Giants want to cap off the 2012 season this way and very well could.

Prior to Sunday night's 38-10 thrashing over the Green Bay Packers, a young man by the name of Adam Merchant from Make-A-Wish told the New York Giants to "play like world champions."

Never before had four words resonated so much with this New York Giants football team.

On the heels of such an uplifting and meaningful victory, the speculation and "what if" games surrounding what the New York football Giants need to do to earn a playoff berth can officially begin.

This 2012 NFL playoff picture is constantly shifting week to week—more so than Mitt Romney's credibility did in his efforts to become President of the United States.  

The world was watching on Sunday night to see how the defending Super Bowl champions would respond coming out of the bye week.

The Giants didn't disappoint.

They dominated the Packers in all facets of the game—special teams, offense and defense. Their full arsenal and scary potential was on display for the league to take notice.

Big Blue's success or failure over the remaining five games will come down to three things: execution, execution, execution.

Talent-wise, the Giants are head-and-shoulders with every other "elite" team in the league.

If every man on the 53-man roster does their job and finishes plays like they did against Green Bay, there's no reason why Big Blue can't repeat as Super Bowl champs.

If the playoffs started today, the Giants would play host to these hobbled Packers, who left New York with their tails between their legs.

The G-Men's Super Bowl-defending target on their back is only getting bigger every week, but there are four ways for this Giants team to reach the playoffs.
