Although the G-Men have played above many people's expectations through the first 10 weeks of the season, their season can crash and burn very quickly if they let it.
With their tough schedule for the rest of the season, that can be a possibility.
For that reason it is absolutely necessary to get this win at home against the Eagles, who at (3-6) are basically down and out in the playoff hunt.
As five-point favorites in this game, the Giants cannot have another letdown because the Dallas Cowboys are getting hot and are in New York's rear-view mirror.
These are the areas of focus if the G-Men want to keep their lead in the NFC East.
