The New York Giants (1-6) travel down the highway to face the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field (1 p.m. ET).
The Giants earned their first victory Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings. This is a game the Giants need to win to have any realistic chance of playing meaningful games during the second half of the season. Lose and they will almost certainly be playing only for pride -- and 2014 -- during the final eight games.
The Eagles won the first meeting between the two teams this season, winning 36-21 in Week 5.
Philadelphia has lost nine straight games at home while the Giants have lost eight straight on the road. The Elias Sports Bureau says this the first such match-up in NFL history.
