Can you feel the excitement?!
No? Can't say I blame you.
In a season that's gone south in a hurry for two NFC East franchises filled with decades of pride and tradition, it's tough to find reasons to anticipate this upcoming showdown in the longstanding rivalry.
However, I'll attempt to come up with a few:
- If When the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Denver Broncos on Sunday and if the Eagles win, they will be somehow tied for first place. If the Giants prevail, they are somehow just one game out with many more to play. (Hope springs eternal in the worst division in sports!)
- With two of the worst defenses in the league squaring up against each other, gamblers are scrambling to their bookies to bet the over and fantasy. Nerds such as myself are making sure their Birds and G-Men players are in the starting lineup in this likely barnburner. And who doesn't like a lot of scoring anyway?
- Because memorable things tend to happen when these two teams play—especially on the Giants' home turf.
And although the Giants boast bragging rights by leading the all-time series 84-76-2, it's the guys in green who come out on top in contests that will stand the test of time.
Here's the top five...
(Note: not only do each of these memorable moments take place on the Giants' field, but note the uncanny similarities with the dates.)
