It was supposed to be simple.
The New York Giants have had control of their own playoff destiny, at least up until now.
That was until the New York Giants laid a gigantic egg in Atlanta this past Sunday, in which they lost total control of the NFC East division lead.
And because the Giants are 2-3 in the NFC East, they don't have any tiebreakers if they were to finish tied at the season's end, so they may not even win the division that they have had control of for most of the year.
However, they are still looking to get into the playoffs, and in today's NFL, that's all you need.
They have two more games remaining in the 2012 regular season, and they need to win both to keep their chances alive.
And for the Giants, it all starts on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Let's break down the Giants current playoff path and their chances of getting back to the playoffs.
