The New York Football Giants hope that earning their first victory of the season on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings will be a springboard to greater success in the second half of the 2013 NFL season. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles found out on Sunday that they are not ready for prime time, as the Birds fell to the rival Cowboys 17-3. These two longtime rivals renew pleasantries in Philadelphia this Sunday.
The only thing that separates the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is Philly’s surprise win over the Washington Redskins on opening day. While the G-men have dropped four straight to open the 2013 NFL campaign, the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including a 54-20 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Both teams are focused on playing 60 minutes of football in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s first tilt in the Meadowlands.
