Since 1990 the series has been fairly even with the Eagles holding a slim 24-22 advantage. It's hard to believe the series is this close considering 14 of the 22 series have resulted in a sweep, including a three-game set in 2000 when the Giants won all three meetings en route to the Super Bowl.
But it's been a rivalry of winning or losing streaks depending on what perspective you take.
During the previously mentioned time frame, New York had a nine-game winning streak from August 31, 1997 - January 7, 2001. And it's not like the Giants were barely getting by either. Of the nine wins, only two were decided by seven points or less.
The Eagles recently returned the favor as the reeled off six-straight wins from December 7, 2008 - December 19, 2010. The Eagles had some blowouts, but three of the six wins were decided by seven points or less, including last year's Miracle at the Meadowlands, highlighted by DeSean Jackson's 65-yard walk-off punt return.
If history does repeat itself the Giants will win Sunday at the New Meadowlands and then win a couple more before the Eagles go on a run.
At this point would anyone be surprised?
The Eagles are in free-fall and the Giants have been playing well over the last couple weeks.
