.... New York, Philly, and the Saints again can be loses, ....
Ironically, the biggest games that would go a long way to assuring us a WC spot would be defeating both the Giants and the Eagles, since the standings right now have them directly behind us. One of the other threads shows us taking the #5 seed right now due to our Strength of victory over the Eagles. So defeating them would give us the better tie breaker, as well as a game up in the standings. Ditto for the Giants.
Frankly, the games we NEED to win are the two against Tampa, the Panthers, the Bills (cause there's not excuse for not winning that game), the Giants and the Eagles. That'd give us a 11-5, and basically a lock on the #5 seed.
So yes, we need to win this game. It'll be tight, and not the end of the world if we don't, but man would it give us a good leg up moving forward.
