5 Reasons NY Giants Have Nothing to Fear About Eagles

Victor Cruz looks to break out of a slump against a team he has torched throughout his young career.

With their backs against the wall and a playoff berth appearing improbable, the New York Giants should at least fulfill their part of the puzzle by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Two horrific losses against the Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens stripped the Giants of the steering wheel. After controlling the NFC East for most of the season, they now need a surplus of help to sneak into the postseason.

For the Giants to grab a wild-card spot, they need a win in addition to losses from the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings.

The odds are against them, but they can at least avoid a catastrophic finish by staying over .500 with a victory over the 4-11 Philadelphia Eagles.

This game smells fishy as a perennial trap game that the Giants blow. Facing a last-place team doesn't feel as good when they have nothing to lose in Andy Reid’s last game of a 14-year coaching tenure.

Then again, the Giants always show up once everybody writes them off following disgusting displays of football, so they could respond with a huge game to conclude a topsy-turvy season.
