Bears’ early lead is bad news for Giants

The Giants have jumped out to an early lead over the Eagles, but if the fans at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey are watching the out of town scores, they have to be getting discouraged.

The Giants cannot make the playoffs unless the Bears lose, and the Bears are currently leading the Lions 20-3. Detroit has made a bunch of mistakes and looks like a team that is just playing out the string and waiting for a lousy season to come to an end, and the Lions don’t look like a team that has enough fight in them to come back and win.

So if the current scores hold, the Giants will be eliminated from playoff contention despite beating the Eagles, and the Bears will stay in playoff contention by beating the Lions. That will leave the Bears and their fans in the unusual position of rooting for the Packers to beat the Vikings, which would clinch a wild card berth for Chicago.

A Bears win would also mean that the Redskins cannot earn a wild card berth, and that their only path to the playoffs is to win the NFC East by beating the Cowboys tonight.

    Giants put themselves in this position. This is what happens when you no show.

    Unfortunately, you can’t ALWAYS win the superbowl when you blow it all season.

    Hey Michael Vick, pretty good audition for your new team the NY Jets…

    Giants put themselves in that lousy position. Lets face it, maybe they just aren’t that good. They are certainly way too inconsistent to be labeled one of the elite this year. I am glad a win from my bears sends the giants home.

    I hope this is Schwartz is sent back to defensive coach because he is not a head coach. We need a new GM and get rid of the Matt Millan era for good

    Doesn’t matter, win or lose in the playoffs or not, the Bears are one and done and so are the Giants this year anyway.

    Loins have lots of great players, it must be bad coaching. I feel for ya, lions fans.

    As a Giants fan all I can say is that the Giants put themselves in this position. They had every chance to put a seal on the division weeks ago and didn’t show up.

    I will be a fan forever and we can’t win it all every year especially with consistently having the toughest schedule in the NFL every year.

    I will be rooting for a Seattle/Denver super bowl or really any super bowl that doesn’t involve the Patriots or any other NFC east team.

    Vikes looking good early could be bad news for Bears.
