METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints know they are long shots to make the playoffs even if they beat the New York Giants on Sunday.
Still, they haven't given up - taking inspiration from the Giants, who made a playoff from a similar position the Saints find themselves in.
Saints cornerback Jabari Greer says, ``We saw what they did last year. We know that it's possible.''
The Giants were on the verge of dropping their fifth game in a row and falling two games behind the Cowboys in the NFC East with three games left. But they went on an improbable run from playoff outsider to Super Bowl champion.
The Giants finished the regular season 9-7. The Saints can get to 9-7 by winning their last four games.
