The Philadelphia Eagles (1-3) come into MetLife Stadium desperate for a win. They aren’t more desperate than the home team, the New York Giants, who are still trying to find their first win of the season.
Fortunately for the Eagles and Giants, the entire NFC East is having a down year. Even at 0-4, the Giants aren’t close to being out of the race for the NFC East. It is shocking considering the Giants have won two Super Bowls recently and the resurgence of the Washington Redskins with Robert Griffin III at quarterback.
“I’m very surprised, especially when our division was picked to be amongst the top,” Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said, via ESPN. “That’s football, man. It goes to show you how you have to be on top of your game.”
“We obviously are not where we want to be right now, but we just have to keep rolling and learn from everything,” Eagles safety Nate Allen said. “That’s all you can do. We are just going to keep working, learn from this and work on the fundamentals and move forward.”
If the Eagles win, and the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Denver Broncos, they’d be tied for the lead in the NFC East.
