The Eagles play tomorrow night, but there's still a good slate of games on tap for Sunday

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

With the Eagles playing tomorrow night, us Philly fans can have a relaxing Sunday for once checking out a few relevant games.

First up at 1pm is Carolina at Washington. The Panthers have been a huge disappointment this year and if Washington has any designs on a run at a wildcard this year, this game is a must win for them. Outside of that, the RG3 vs Cam Newton matchup will obviously get a lot of play and could certainly make for interesting viewing.

The Giants are in action at 4 as they host the Steelers at MetLife stadium. It's a very tough spot for Pittsburgh, who couldn't even get a hotel in the New York area and therefore are traveling to the game this morning.

Sunday night will feature Dallas traveling to Atlanta to take on the undefeated Falcons. That one has the potential of being the most lopsided of all the NFC East games this week.
