The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Monday night as the team is scheduled to play the New York Giants in Week 6. It's an NFC East battle for the lead in the division.
This matchup is really just another must-win affair for the Eagles. The Birds can't afford to drop down to 2-4 overall with a 0-3 record in division games. Beating the Giants would mean advancing to 3-3 with a 1-2 record in division games. It could also mean that the Eagles would be in first place of the NFC East despite getting off to such a bad start this season.
The good news for the Eagles is that they seem to be playing better football. The team is coming off their best win of the season after blowing out the New Orleans Saints, who happened to beat the previously undefeated Atlanta Falcons this week, by a final score of 39 to 17. Philadelphia's offense looked like it's ready to get back on track. Now it's time to prove they can do it with some consistency.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia's defense will have their hands full with the Giants offense. Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been ruled questionable but the Eagles expect him to play. Eli Manning is playing well right now so the Eagles defense will certainly need to earn their paychecks once again this week.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
