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.

Jeff Fisher promised the Nick Foles era was not over in St. Louis after the Rams coach announced he had benched the former Eagles quarterback Monday, and that's probably true. You have to believe Case Keenum, the undrafted QB du jour for the Rams, will make it possible for Foles to start again before the season is over. This, of course, is no time for the Eagles or Chip Kelly to gloat about the trade that brought Sam Bradford to Philadelphia from the Rams. The Eagles, their coach, and their quarterback have enough issues of their own, including a 4-5 record that is identical to the disappointing mark that helped send Foles to the bench in St. Louis.

MALCOLM JENKINS' heart belongs to his wife Morrisa. But his arm belongs to his college frat. On the back page of Monday's Daily News was a picture of Jenkins having just picked off a pass from Tom Brady in the Eagles' 35-28 win over the Patriots and was about to dash 99 yards for the longest touchdown of his career. Within staff photographer Yong Kim's wonderful picture is what looks like a large tattoo on Jenkins' biceps. "It's a brand, really," Jenkins said. "It hurt for about four seconds and then the nerves were burned off, basically, and I couldn't feel it anymore.

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.

If there was a play this season that epitomized the notion that some Eagles were giving less than 100 percent for Chip Kelly, it actually didn't come in Sunday's utterly pathetic, 45-17 drubbing at the hands of the Buccaneers, although there were plenty of candidates. It came last week against the Dolphins, a week after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys and seemingly had momentum for salvaging their season. It came after they had taken a 16-3 lead and as they were driving for what appeared to be another touchdown.

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...
