About the only good news that the Eagles and the Giants can take right now is that they are both within striking distance of the Dallas Cowboys atop the NFC East. The winner of this one is going to take a massive step in the right direction, and in all likelihood, Philly moves into a first place tie with a win, and the Giants remain just one back of the boys from Big D with a triumph. We suppose that New York can also rest easily that its schedule has to get easier from here. The first four games of the season have been very tough, and three of the first four were on the road, which is why this is a game that it feels like should right the ship even though there is very little to justify that it should happen.
The Eagles though, are just flat out bad. The offense is doing the job, but the defense is just horrifyingly bad, and it isn’t going to get any better than it is right now. This is really what got Head Coach Andy Reid fired last year. The offense went through its injuries, but the defense was what really caused this team to lose time and time again. If New York can stop turning the ball over, it has a real chance to make a statement in this game. If QB Eli Manning isn’t careful, he too, might land in the doghouse and might find himself watching at least part of a game. It might be high time to let QB Ryan Nassib give it a go if he is ready. Manning won’t let that happen though, and he’ll pick apart a Philly team that he has been frustrated by quite a bit in the past.
