Surprisingly, the Eagles are in SECOND place. Yes, you read that right. The first place team in the NFC East would be the Dallas Cowboys and they have a 2-2 record. The NFC East is showing it's weakness right now with a combined 4-12 record among its members. The Washington Redskins are also 1-3 and the New York Giants sit at the bottom of the board with a 0-4 record.
After this weekend, the Eagles could end up tied for first place. They play the Giants on Sunday while the Cowboys play the Denver Broncos and the Redskins have a bye week. The Broncos are 4-0 and have proven they are one of the best teams in the league this year. Honestly, the Cowboys don't stand a chance against Peyton Manning and the Broncos because Manning has 16 touchdown passes and ZERO interceptions through four games. If the Broncos win, that puts the Cowboys at 2-3.
The Eagles need to win on Sunday! This is the only way they can turn the season around. The Giants are 0-4 and just made a trade to bring in a linebacker to help out their defense. With the Giants defense playing worse than the Eagles defense, this is the best chance the Eagles offense to go all out. They have shown what the up-tempo offense is capable of, but they need to show it again as they seem to have slowed things down over the past few weeks.
If there is one thing the Giants are afraid of when they are playing the Eagles, it's DeSean Jackson. Remember that punt return? Yeah, that is one memory that all Giants fans hate. With a struggling Giants defense, look for Michael Vick and Jackson to go deep quite a few times.
With a win over the Giants, the Eagles would move to 2-3 for the season and tie with the Cowboys if they lose to the Broncos, which is highly likely. As stated earlier, anything can happen right now. The next two weeks will be the deciding factor for the Eagles season. If they don't turn it around against the currently 0-4 New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then the Eagles most likely won't make the postseason.
