New York Giants Reader Q&A

Question by Phil K: How do the New York Giants have the division clinched?
I am a Dallas Cowboys fan. Right now, the New York Giants are 11-3, and the Cowboys are 9-5. Given that New York losed the last two and Dallas wins the last two, they would both be 11-5. The Giants beat the Cowboys earlier this season, and the Cowboys won last night. So how is it that New York has clinched the division? Thanks!


Answer by Modest the Prince
We beat the Redskins twice, and the Redskins beat the Cowboys once. We beat the Steelers and the Steelers beat the Cowboys. Though if the Cowboys were to win out and the Giants went 11-5 that’s why. Playing the same teams we got more wins against the same teams they played.

Answer by aaron b
Same way the Titans did with the colts breathing down their heels.

Answer by Nick (Bronco Dude)
The Giants clinched the conference record tiebreaker. Even if they were to lose both games, and the Cowboys to win both, the Giants would have a better conference record, giving them the NFC East crown.

Question by Julie L: Why is the New York Giants stadium in New Jersey?
Why is the NYG stadium located in NJ if it is NEW YORK giants?


Answer by ™★☆KIMwithISSYandJADE☆★
It was cheaper to build it in Jersey than anywhere in NY.

Answer by scpttb512
Because of Jimmy Hoffas last words “Your not moving me one more inch” and he just happened to be in New Jersey at the time. Just think if he had been in Butte. Then the New York Giants would be playing there. Or how about Raleigh, I guess the list could go on and on!

  1. Vikings Fan says:

    Because they have won more games than the other teams in there division, the best the Cowboys can do is go 11-9, and the best the Giants can do is 13-3, and if the Giants lose there next 2 and final games and if Dallas wins there last 2 games it’ll be a tigh, and I have no idea what happens if they tigh

  2. Dallas Cowboys Fan Forever says:

    Strength of schedule.

    The Cowboys also beat the Browns and Eagles; who beat the Giants, so don’t listen to the guy who said it was based on the Rams and Steelers games.

    The Giants also scored more points in their wins in common opponents. I asked this same question yesterday and was filled in on this.

    EDIT: It’s also not conference record. Both would be 8-4 in the NFC if Dallas wins out and the Giants lose out.

  3. mihirpatel900 says:

    another fine example of a bandwagon cowboy fan coming out of the woods and not knowing a THING about football!

  4. Anduril says:

    Even if both teams end up 11-5, the Giants will have the tie breaker. The first tie breaker is head to head, in which they are even. The next step in the tie breaking process is divisional record, or how many wins and losses they have to teams within the NFC East. Again, the teams could both be 4-2. The next step in the tie breaking process is common games, or the teams’ records for games against teams they both played. As the NFC East plays the AFC North and the NFC West, each teams records against these two divisions make up their common games record. If Dallas wins the rest of their games, they will both be 3-1 against the AFC North. So it rests on their records against the NFC West. Dallas is 2-2 against that division, and New York is 4-0. Therefore, even if Dallas wins the rest and the Giants lose the rest, the Giants will have the tie breaker.

  5. Rufus says:

    It comes down to COMMON OPPONENTS, and here the giants win because they swept the nfc west, but the cowboys didnt. the giants actually clinched last week.

  6. muraridude13 says:

    well, we (im a diehard) have it clinched becuase of the first game. You see, it is the first game that matters. who ever wins that gets tiebreaker

  7. giantshadow16 says:

    That is because there are more central divisional wins,(More wins in the NFC) which count more than wins against teams in the AFC.

  8. Annie says:

    cheaper to build there

  9. SauceyMcMuffin says:

    Because the new york giants really should belong to Jersey but new jersey anit that big like New york

  10. B_Wells says:

    The Giants originally played in NYC. When they 1st moved to New Jersey they did actually de-emphasize the NY part of their name by removing it from their helmet and replacing it with “GIANTS”. As the trends changed towards retro they did go back to their traditional uniform.

    Many teams’ stadiums are not actually in the city proper, which they represent. ( ie, Dallas’ stadium is/was in Irving TX) Basically what would you rather call your team The New Jersey Giants or the New York Giants.

    Also it could be said that the Giants’ stadium falls within what would be called the greater New York City metropolitan area.

  11. Kevo D says:

    They’re even building the new stadium in NJ. Beats me I guess. Money? Plus they even attract new jersey fans to Giants/Jets games lol

    Although its CGI, meadowlands looks like it has a good view of NYC

  12. TEDDY says:


  13. mebo says:

    New York only has one NFL team. The Bills. New Jersey has two.

  14. Mike says:

    I have seen the new stadium 4 times on 2 different occasions within the past 2 weeks. The Giants/Jets did not build the stadium in Jersey just because it is cheaper. Where would they be able to build a new stadium in the city. Anyway when you are really close to the Stadium you could easily see the empire state building.
