NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, Baltimore is 0-6 ATS last 6 at home off a loss and 0-6 ATS L6 in December. The Giants need a win and some help to clinch a playoff berth. This is basically a must-win as Washington owns the tiebreaker in the NFC East with two wins over the Giants. Fortunately the G-Men, coming off a 34-0 shutout loss at Atlanta, take on a team in more disarray than they are. Baltimore clinched a playoff spot last week, only because Pittsburgh lost at Dallas. The Ravens have lost three straight, have numerous injuries on defense and a new OC that help Joe Flacco in their 34-17 home loss to Denver last week.
