Of the remaining wild card teams in the running, the team that scares me the most is easily the Falcons.
Honestly the Giants stack up well against the Falcons, Lions, Cowboys, and Bears, but the Falcons would be the team I would least want to face if I'm the Giants.
It almost is a process of elimination with a combination of the Falcons playing good football.
The Bears likely will not make it as they are in a tail spin without Matt Forte and Jay Cutler. The Lions have lost five of their last eight games and barely escaped with a win over the 2-11 Vikings—they were bailed out by a ridiculous no-call facemask on a play that led to the game sealing fumble.
The Cowboys are a division rival and the Giants have won four of the last five meetings—four in a row against Tony Romo.
The Falcons present a problem for the Giants in that they are incredibly balanced on offense and are prone to hit huge plays in the passing game with their terrific wide receivers.
Plus, they have Tony Gonzalez and teams with great tight ends have killed the Giants this season. He, Julio Jones, Roddy White, and the Falcons run game would be able to move the ball very well against the Giants defense that has struggled of late.
If I'm the Giants, I would actually be rooting for the Lions to finish in the No. 5 seed.
