2023 New York Giants Updates February 2024

Below is a timeline of important team update that could factor into the Giants playoff odds.

  • 📅 December 4: Giants activate QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) to active roster and open his practice window.
  • 📅 October 31: Giants sign QB Tommy DeVito to active roster and Matt Barkley to the practice squad.
  • 📅 October 30: Daniel Jones was cleared for contact on Monday which has sparked speculation he may play Week 9 versus Las Vegas. DT Leonard Williams was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2024 second-round pick and 2025 fifth-round selection.
  • 📅 October 16: With Tyrod Taylor at quarterback, the Giants lose again to the Bills, 14-9.
  • 📅 October 9: Daniel Jones is feeling better after injuring his neck in Sunday's 31-16 loss in Miami. He is questionable for Sunday night in Buffalo.
  • 📅 October 3: Giants fall to 1-3 after home loss to Seattle as Andrew Thomas and Saquon Barkley may not return in Week 5 versus Miami either.
  • 📅 September 19: Giants announce RB Saquon Barkley will miss three weeks with an ankle sprain. Andrew Thomas may not play again in Week 3, and Azeez Ojulari may not either.
  • 📅 September 8: Giants extend K Graham Gano for three years at $16.5 million. Almost $11.3 million of the contract is fully guaranteed.
  • 📅 September 3: Giants restructure $6.3 million worth of Daniel Jones' contract. It may or may not mean a move is coming as this creates more salary cap flexibility.

Key Contributors To Giants' Playoff Chances

QB Daniel Jones is off the board to win MVP and the Offensive Player of the Year award. He missed three games then tore his ACL on a non-contact play in Las Vegas. Tommy DeVito (+25000 for OROY) took some hard shots, got knocked out, and never looked right after in the 24-6 loss on Sunday. Now, the Giants face an angry Eagles team.

Saquon Barkley's MVP number remains off the board and the OPOY number too after Week 15. Barkley ran for 14 yards and added 23 more receiving. The nine carries cannot happen against Philadelphia.

WR Wan'Dale Robinson hauled in four passes for only 25 yards. TE Darren Waller returned and caught four passes for 40 yards. WR Jalin Hyatt (OTB for OROY) had three targets but no catches and WR Darius Slayton hauled in four passes for a team-leading 63 yards.

CB Jason Pinnock led the team with eight tackles and a sack against the Saints. LB Kayvon Thibodeaux (OTB for DPOY) was held to one tackle. LB Bobby Okereke (OTB for DPOY) had three tackles, Rookie CB Deonte Banks (+10000 for DROY) also had three tackles. S Xavier McKinney (OTB for DPOY) only had four tackles as the Giants did not force any Saints mistakes.

Brian Daboll, the 2022 Coach of the Year, will not repeat (OTB at FanDuel NY Sportsbook) as Coach of the Year but if they were somehow to get in the playoffs, maybe there is a chance?

Looking Ahead: Giants Playoff Picture

What is the Giants' path to the playoffs? Now, New York must win out to make the playoffs as they are jammed behind several other teams including Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Seattle, etc. Also, Chicago is 5-9 as well. The Giants are third in the NFC East. They are now 5-9 under head coach Brian Daboll.

The Giants are riding with Devito against the Eagles. TE Darren Waller needs to stay healthy and get open. WR Jalin Hyatt needs to convert those targets. DeVito needs to get the ball to his playmakers, including Barkley.

Star RB Saquon Barkley's short-term future needs a big boost against the Eagles. Philadelphia can be attacked defensively. There will be gaps. However, the Giants must be more dynamic and take more shots with Barkley.

Week 15 put the Giants in dire straits. Another huge loss means it is another top draft pick for Big Blue at the 2024 NFL Draft. Even then, New York needs losses for almost everyone ahead of them at this point.

Do the Giants Have a Chance to Make the Playoffs?

As of now, the New York Giants have a 1% chance of making the playoffs. Christmas will feature a herculean task as the Giants go on the road to face the Eagles. NY sports betting apps still have a glimmer of hope for the Giants to make the playoffs despite being taken off FanDuel and DraftKings.

The reigning conference champion Eagles (10-4) are still favored to win the division again with a 73% chance. Philadelphia's chance to make the playoffs is a lock. The Cowboys (10-4) lost by 21 in Buffalo. Dallas now has a 31% chance to win the division and is in the playoffs after Week 15.

For better or worse, Tommy DeVito is the starting quarterback the rest of the season.

The Giants offense had some moments but the running game was neutralized as the Saints held New York to a mere 60 yards. Again, DeVito took some vicious shots. That cannot happen again. Furthermore, he needs to get the ball down the field. Six points will not cut it Monday.

The defensive unit needs turnovers to give New York any chance. DT Dexter Lawrence, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and safety Xavier McKinney must cause havoc.

New York's defense must set up the offense with shorter fields while the offense must execute to keep the defense off the field so much. New Orleans lit up the Giants' defense for three passing touchdowns. That cannot happen again.

Are The Giants Out Of The Playoffs?

As of now, the Giants are not out of playoff contention yet. Only the Carolina Panthers (1-12), Arizona Cardinals (3-11), and Washington Commanders (4-10) have been eliminated in the NFC playoff hunt for 2023.

I'll update here each week during the NFL season to get updates on the Giants' playoff chances and playoff picture as their odds change.

Week 15 saw the New York Giants drop back to a 1% chance of making the playoffs. The playoff picture, at 5-9 is looking very bleak unless they get help.

Where Do the Giants Rank in the NFC East?

The New York Giants' playoff chances are now 1% (New York Times) and again 5.88% on DraftKings while Washington is eliminated. Philadelphia and Dallas have clinched spots. As for the division, Philadelphia and Dallas only have the ability to change the standings.

When it comes to the Giants' chances in the NFC East, there is no mathematical way for them to overtake Dallas and Philadelphia. New York is currently five games out with three games left in the season to play.

So far, the New York Giants are 5-9 in 2023. Here are the current 2023 NFC East standings:

  1. Dallas Cowboys 10-4
  2. Philadelphia Eagles 10-4
  3. New York Giants 5-9
  4. Washington Commanders 4-10

The Philadelphia Eagles went to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. Dallas was eliminated in the Wild Card round by the San Francisco 49ers. The Commanders struggled to a .500 mark and did not make the playoffs.

This year New York is still looking up at the division. Philadelphia and Dallas rule the landscape. Washington is in the basement and the Giants are third. It almost appears this may be the way the division ends up.

Where Do The Giants Rank In the NFC Playoff Standings?

New York narrowly made the playoffs in 2022, going 3-6-1 in their final 10 games. The red flags surfaced early in 2023. At 2-8, the Giants' playoff standing is in deep jeopardy.

The New York Giants still rank tied for last to win the NFC, which puts them on the outside looking in as seven teams make the playoffs. As for Super Bowl numbers, the Giants are also tied for last among NFC teams at +100000. New York still needs wins in the playoff standings.

Where Do The Giants Rank In the NFC Wild Card Race?

As the 2023 season began, New York was already on the bubble. The Giants will need to get to eight wins to have a chance at the playoffs.

After Week 15 the New York Giants remain in a battle with teams like Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Green Bay, and New Orleans. Any team not Carolina, Arizona, or Washington in the NFC still has a chance. New York is two games out of the final spot occupied by the Los Angeles Rams (6-7). Seattle and New Orleans are right there too.

Can The Giants Get The No. 1 Seed?

The New York Giants cannot get the No. 1 seed. Five games behind Philadelphia and Dallas is doomsday. At this juncture, the wildcard is still quite a challenge.

Philadelphia is +420 to win the NFC, Dallas is +500 and the Giants are at +100000.

The Eagles and Giants close the season facing off in Weeks 16 and 18. New York needs to sweep those games and beat the Rams. At 5-9, the New York Giants still require a ton of help just to gain the seventh and final seed.

Any first-round bye chance (or better than the wild card spot) is gone.

New York Giants Postseason Outlook and Predictions

The New York Giants have nothing to lose for 2023 now. Brian Daboll and his coaching staff need several upsets and help. When it comes to the New York Giants, making plays has to happen on both sides of the ball. Right now, the defense must make plays. When they do not, they get picked apart and the offense cannot respond. That spells losses. Another one spells likely elimination.

This Giants team needs injuries and losses from the teams in front of them to have any chance of making the second season. Again, winning and a few upsets would help too. New York must beat Philadelphia or else.
