Are you ready for some football! It's Monday Night Football and it is a NFC East showdown between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. Get out your popcorn folks because these NFC East battles are full of bad blood from long time rivalries and they almost always are close games worth watching.
The Eagles are a team that is in an incredibly lucky situation considering how awful they started the season. They sit at 2-3 right now but they are coming off a very impressive win against the New Orleans Saints last week 39-17. They have the chance to even out their record at 3-3, but they also get the chance to tie for first place in the division at that .500 record with a win.

The team that currently leads the NFC East is the other team in tonight's match up with the NY Giants leading the division at 3-2. They are also on a winning streak with that record as they have won their last 3 contests in a row, most recently against the 49ers last Sunday Night 30-27. They will be in sole possession of first place with a victory tonight that would put them at 4-2 with an impressive 4 game winning streak.
