New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles takes place on Sunday in Week 8 of the NFL 2013 regular season, in what is a massive game for the Giants if they are to get their season back on track. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Giants finally won their first game in Week 7, claiming a comfortable 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings to go 1-6. However, they are still very much rooted to the foot of the NFC East, and they will be hoping to make some good ground back on their divisional rivals today with a second straight win.
These two teams met just at the beginning of the month at the MetLife Stadium and the Eagles claimed a big 36-21 win that day. Since then the Giants have gotten themselves together a bit more, losing out 21-27 in a close contest with the Chicago Bears, and then claiming their win against the Vikings.
However, things are still far from perfect in the Giants' ranks, and they will be hoping that they can continue building on some of the good progress they've made in recent weeks, and not suffer a relapse to what we saw in their last game against the Eagles.
The Eagles meanwhile are 3-4 and second in the NFC East. They had the chance to take the number one spot in the division outright last week but suffered a bad 3-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys to allow them the privilege instead.
Philadelphia will be looking to control the clock and tempo of the game by running their powerful rush offense today. They rank number one in the NFL on rush, posting 165 yards per game on average on rush. In total yards gained per game they are ranked 3rd with 425.3 yards per game. However, all those yards have not resulted in the amount of wins as they'd have hoped for, and some lackluster defense has stunted their progress.
If the Eagles lose today they will be just a win ahead of the Giants, and could lose further ground on the Cowboys. They will want to make sure they claim a second win of the season over the Giants today.
