Good morning, New York Giants fans! You awake today to the Giants being relevant in a rejuvenated NFC East that has the Giants at 3-2 and the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys at 4-1. The Giants, of course, play both of those teams on the road over the next two weeks. We will get to that later. For now, let's check the headlines and see what others are saying about the Giants after Sunday's 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
Believe it or not, the NFC East might really matter again.
It's certainly been a while.
That division is the only one in the NFL with two 4-1 clubs, the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. Plus, it also includes the New York Giants, who have won three consecutive games to get to 3-2.
Two of the marquee games on next Sunday's schedule involve teams from a group recently known as the "NFC Least" — the Cowboys are at the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, and the Eagles host the Giants at night.
Why the NFC East is now having Odell Beckham nightmares | New York Post
Odell Beckham Jr. sure was worth the wait, and it was love at first sight for Big Blue Nation at MetLife Stadium Sunday. Eli Manning has a bouncing baby toy, the kind of nuclear weapon he has never really had, not with Plaxico Burress, not with Hakeem Nicks, not even with Victor Cruz, and it is a weapon that can change the complexion of the NFC East in the blink of an eye.

Osi Umenyiora gets Eli once, but return a tough one | New York Post
This sure couldn’t have been what Osi Umenyiora had in mind when he bolted New York for Atlanta. He suffered through a disastrous record last year, has a losing record so far this season, and had to suffer through his old team beating his new one 30-20 on Sunday.
