This week in Philadelphia, a legendary 79-year-old feud will be reignited on the lush green stadium floor of Lincoln Financial Field when the historic rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants commands the football world's attention.

Since this saga began in 1933, these two teams have battled in both cities, leaving players and fans alike with personal stories that span nearly eight decades and spill far beyond the 100 yards of turf where the games played out.

This Sunday, from the first whistle, singing out like a lit fuse, until the final whistle blows, the Eagles and Giants will fight with a fierce intensity that will culminate, like always, with one team cavorting triumphantly and one team slumping in defeat.

In the end, there will be dozens of smaller tales to weave into the broader story of this never-ending rivalry. Be clear about what these stories within a story are called. These are not moments. "Moment" is much too tender a word for what occurs when these teams meet.

Call them events, incidents or clashes.

Just know that what happens during the 60 minutes of playing time and all the time until their next battle, whenever Eagles and Giants stand opposed on any field, there will never be anything as gentle as a moment.

Whatever these unforgettable game-changer episodes are named, here are eight of the most notorious ones.
