EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Two wins don't make a playoff contender, unless you're in the NFC East.

Despite opening the season with six straight losses, the New York Giants (2-6) remarkably are still in the playoff hunt heading into their bye week.

The Giants won their second straight game Sunday with a 15-7 decision over the Eagles in Philadelphia. Things only got better after the game when Detroit staged a furious last-minute rally to knock off the division-leading Dallas Cowboys (4-4).

The mathematics are simple. New York is two games behind with eight to play. It's not the best position and the chances that the Giants will make the playoffs are not good unless they run the table.

Still, it's a chance the Giants are lucky to have.
