The Giants’ win-loss record since the Week 5 victory over the 49ers: Win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-loss. How about that for consistency? That is the 2015 New York Giants in a nutshell, and they now face an uphill battle to reach the postseason.

They share a 5-6 record atop the NFC East, but face a tough schedule from here on out. The battle of New York between the Giants and Jets takes place this week, and they still have to play the Panthers and Vikings. But as we’ve learned, anything can happen in the NFL, and anything can happen in the NFC East.

It’s hardly a home game with the Jets this week, either. While they will have the home dressing room, home colors and majority of fans, this won’t be the advantage you would normally come to expect at MetLife Stadium.

Next: No. 15
