Sunday's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants is a huge game. The Eagles have high expectations for 2011. Starting 1-2 and 0-1 in the NFC East is not what they had in mind. The Giants also don't want to start 1-2 and they really don't want to make it seven straight losses to the Eagles.
Leading up to this game everyone is going to be talking about the last meeting between these two teams, "The Miracle at the New Meadowlands". The Giants blew a 21 point lead halfway through the fourth quarter of their Week 15 matchup from last season. It left a bad taste in the Giants' players mouths and they will have revenge on their minds.
The officiating crew will certainly earn their pay on Sunday as these are two teams that really don't like each other. This game will go along way in deciding both teams future playoff chances even though it's only Week 3.
