Let's see now. Going into today's late afternoon soiree with the Giants, the Eagles have lost five straight games. The Giants have lost the last five games they have played at Veterans Stadium. The Eagles have not rushed for a touchdown since they played the Jets on Oct. 3. No Giants quarterback has passed for a touchdown since New York last played the Eagles on Oct. 17. The Giants (6-3) already have won as many games as they did over the entire season last year. The Eagles (4-5)

Today at 1 p.m. Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. TV: Fox29 Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 3 1/2 How They Match Up Eagles defense vs. Jets offense The Eagles' strength on defense this season has been shutting down opposing running games, which is the Jets' biggest weakness on offense. The Eagles are allowing just 3.4 yards per carry, the third-best mark in the NFL. The Jets, with free-agent import Thomas Jones as their feature back, are averaging just 3 yards per carry, which is tied with Kansas City for the worst average in the league.

Today at 4:15 p.m. Lincoln Financial Field TV: Fox29 Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 5 1/2 How They Match Up Eagles defense vs. Bears offense The Bears are 1-2 since Brian Griese replaced Rex Grossman as the starting quarterback, but they have been far more explosive on offense. With Grossman under center, the Bears scored two offensive touchdowns - one passing - in their first three games. With Griese, the offense has scored eight touchdowns in the last three games, including seven via the air. The Bears' passing offense also has climbed from 30th to 20th in the league rankings over the last three games.

As wretched as the Eagles played last week against the Arizona Cardinals - especially on offense - they're still 2-1 heading into Sunday night's NFC East showdown with the 2-1 New York Giants. It has been an ugly 2-1, but a victory over their chief NFC East rivals would nearly wipe away the residue of a sloppy start and position the Eagles atop the standings at the quarter pole. A loss to the defending Super Bowl champs would not be a backbreaker, but coming off the drubbing in Arizona and with the Pittsburgh Steelers lying in wait next week, it would justify a 7 or 8 on the panic meter.

MAYBE YOU CAN debate whether it meant that much, in the long run, but you can't debate that this was Chip Kelly's win. The Eagles coach said his team could not let Dallas affect its preparation for Chicago, that it needed to bounce back hard from last week's embarrassing loss in Minnesota, whether the 8:30 p.m. kickoff carried with it a chance to wrap up the NFC East or not. The Eagles went an impressive 2-for-2 in their most dominating victory of...

The Eagles' defense has prepared for the Redskins' running game by looking back. The unit's early-season struggles against the run hit bottom against Washington in Week 4, when the Birds allowed 169 rushing yards and 4.8 yards per carry - both season highs - and couldn't stop the Redskins late in the game as they chewed up the clock. The Eagles have reviewed that game tape, with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott pointing out group and individual mistakes, several players said.

A funny thing happened on the way to oblivion. The Eagles (suddenly, shockingly, impressively, all of the above) have decided they don't want to go. Suddenly: A team that started the season with three losses, two of them of the painfully pathetic variety, has arisen to win two straight. That includes yesterday's 16-0 shutout of the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. Shockingly: A team that gave up big plays by the truckload early in the season has put together back-to-back defensive efforts of the kind that playoff teams would be proud.
