Eagles look to get back on track versus woeful Giants

Oct 6, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT


Philadelphia is 1-3, coming off the heels of a 52-20 loss in Denver. New York is still winless and has been outscored 69-7 in their last two games.

Your classic battle for NFC East supremacy, this is not. Although for what it’s worth—nothing if you ask Chip Kelly—the Eagles have a good chance to move into first place with a victory this week.

The last time the Eagles played the Giants and both teams had a losing record was in 2007. Of course, the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl that season. The last time the Eagles played the Giants and both teams finished with a losing record—which is looking like a real possibility this season—the year was 1999.

Here we are though. Big game for both teams despite the disappointing records. The Eagles would like to get back on track with the schedule easing up a bit for awhile. The Giants are just trying to avoid a locker room revolt. Go Birds.

    Thanks to this division, the winning team may go 6-10 with all wins coming in the division. That would be hilarious.

    yeah its always great to beat the Giants

    but I hope nobody takes anything more from this game than our crappy team beating and even worse team

      Agree 100%. Don’t overreact. Michael Vick is still the leader and heart of this team. He will likely lead us to the playoffs. Where we go from there is anyone’s guess.

        A win is a win no matter how you get it. If we get in the playoffs I’m sure chip has some tricks up his sleeve that we haven’t seen yet that after 16 weeks of smash mouth football the pace of this offense will destroy most defenses. And it would be best for Vick to take the week off against the lowly bucs ( the team foles got his 1st career starting victory over) and let him get healthy for the cowgirls and try to really get a hold on this sad division

      actually if there is one real positive I’m gonna take out of this its that our pass defense, despite the 3 TDs, looked a lot better today, particularly Fletcher and Boykins…I mean, as bad as the Midgets are, its still Nicks and Cruz out there…

      and really, one of those TDs doesn’t happen if Cruz doesn’t whine his way to a phantom pass interference call

      small steps anyway

    Just thought I’d leave this here…

      How original. No one has done that yet. De Sean wishes he was Cruz.

        *DeSean wishes he had someone who could hit him more than 50% of the time when he’s wide open.
