At least now Giants don’t have to root for Cowboys
EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) — At least now the Giants don’t have to root for the Cowboys.
After Tampa Bay lost to New Orleans on Saturday, New York advanced to the playoffs. Had the Bucs won, the Giants would have needed their archrival from Dallas to beat Detroit on Monday night to secure a postseason berth.
Instead, the Giants (10-5) are in the playoffs for the first time since 2011, when they won the Super Bowl. They must wait until after the regular season finales to find out where they will head on Jan. 7 or 8 for a wild-card game.
