One of those is the 4-6 Philadelphia Eagles hosting the New England Patriots. Last week's victory over the Giants left the Eagles clinging to the periphery of the NFC playoff race. A victory today by the Patriots could pretty much knock the Eagles off the playoff cliff, which the Giants failed to do a week ago.
Atlanta (6-4) hosts Minnesota. This game, of course, could affect the Falcons' wild-card playoff hopes. Atlanta could still catch 7-3 New Orleans, but they could also end up fighting the Giants for a wild-card playoff berth.
The third game is 7-3 Chicago at Oakland. The Bears have lost quarterback Jay Cutler, and now we see if they can hang on to a playoff spot with Caleb Hanie playing quarterback. Again, this affects the Giants as it would be nice to see the Bears slide back a bit.
