Despite what the New York Giants might believe, they really don’t have much else to play for in this upcoming three-game stretch that begins this weekend with a home matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, have a lot to play for this weekend, as with a win, they will finish with their best road record (6-2) in franchise history.

More importantly, per the official NFL playoff scenarios, the Seahawks can clinch the NFC West and a first-round bye with a win over the Giants plus a San Francisco loss.

If those two criteria are met and the New Orleans Saints lose their game against the St. Louis Rams, the Seahawks will clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

It’s a bleak outlook for the Giants, who will try to play the role of spoilers and avoid their ninth loss this season, which would guarantee them of finishing below .500 for the first time under Tom Coughlin since 2004.

If the Giants really do want to play spoilers and see how they stack up against what is perhaps the best team in the NFC, they’re going to need strong performances from the following five players.
