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.
