With a one-game lead in a division that has underperformed from top to bottom, the Giants could likely secure a playoff berth with a 10-6 record.
But Giants safety Antrel Rolle’s looking at the toughest part of the schedule, and suggesting that winning out might be necessary.
“I want to win six out of six,” Rolle said during his weekly appearance on WFAN (via the New York Daily News). “That’s the way I look at it, that’s the way I play the game, that’s my attitude about it. Four out of six — it may get us in, it may not get us in. it all depends.
“I don’t want to bank ourselves on a 10-6 season. So [I’m] definitely going to go for a 12-4 season.”
It doesn’t help his cause that they’re likely entering the toughest part of their schedule, starting with Sunday night’s game with the Packers. They also have a pair of division games left, along with Atlanta, New Orleans and Baltimore.
“We have control of our own destiny at this point,” Rolle said. “We’ve got to take care of each and every week as if it’s our last week, as if it’s our first week, as if it’s a do-or-die week, because that’s exactly what it is. It’s do or die; there’s no room for error at this point.”
Given the schedule they have in front of them, 4-2 would be impressive in its own right, despite Rolle’s lofty goals.
