Giants must win and receive help to reach the playoffs

The New York Giants will host the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday at MetLife Stadium in the Big Apple. The Giants must win, and get some help, if they hope to get in the playoffs and try to defend their Super Bowl title from last season. The team has faltered down the stretch and has been one of the bigger disappointments of the season. This Sunday, however, they face a team that has disappointed even more this season in the Eagles. The Eagles are just 4-11, but do seem to have something to look forward to in their future.

The Eagles will most likely be making a coaching change after this year from long-tenured coach Andy Reid. That is not something they should exactly look forward too, but they do have what appears to be an up and coming quarterback in their rookie Foles. Michael Vick is most likely going to be walking out the door with Andy Reid and Foles will be taking his spot. Given a healthy Shady McCoy, Foles should be able to really grow in the offense quickly.

 

The Giants will have to take a hard look at what happened to their offense down the stretch. Eli has played like he was hurt down the stretch this year and the team in general has suffered many injuries. A few weeks ago the Giants looked like they were ready to legitimately defend their title, but that quickly became a distant memory. Given a miracle, It is unlikely to see them playing come January.
