Over their final seven games, the New York Giants face the NFL's toughest slate of games. The next seven opponents have a combined record of 37-19 -- that .661 winning percentage is by far the highest in the league, per ESPN Stats and Information.

The Giants have upcoming games against the undefeated New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers, a six-win Minnesota Vikings team and a five-win New York Jets.

They get the Washington Redskins (3-5) and Miami Dolphins (3-5), but both games are on the road. In the final game of the season, one that could end up being a play-in game for the NFC East division, the Giants host the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants will need to stay healthy over the final stretch of the season if they want to stay above ground in the NFC East race. In the past four weeks, the Giants have lost key defenders Johnathan Hankins, Jon Beason and Prince Amukamara -- only the latter is eligible to return in 2015. At the same time, key offensive contributors Will Beatty and Victor Cruz could return to the team within the next few weeks.
