The Eagles and their fans get to sit back and enjoy some stress free football on TV today. The Birds have 10 days to rest and heal up for their matchup with the Giants next weekend. In the meantime, here some games that should be of interest today.
Carolina @ Green Bay - This is a matchup of two teams locked in 3 teams fights for the top of their divisions... but the difference is that Carolina is 8-3 and the Packers are just 5-6 but still only a game out of their division lead. The Pack will be fighting for their playoff live at home today, while the Panthers will be looking to keep pace with the Bucs and Falcons. Both teams were blown out last weekend and will be looking to rebound.
New Orleans @ Tampa Bay - The New Orleans offense is firing on all cylinders after putting up 51 on the Packers last week. They head to Tamps to face their NFC South leading rivals Tampa Bay in will be a statement game for the Bucs. If they are for real, we should find out today.
New York Giants @ Washington - This is the big one for Eagles fans. The Redskins have not played well since their bye and are in danger of seriously falling out of the NFC East race. A win over the Giants today would put them just two games back in the division and leapfrog them over Dallas for the final wildcard spot. With the Eagles heading up to NY next week, it would be nice to see some cracks in the Giants armor today.
PIttsburgh @ New England - This should just be a good game. Two teams that have been powers in the AFC for years, both playing well... Should be fun.
Kansas City @ Oakland - Yes, they both suck... but it's still one of the classic rivalries in football.
