“The Birds Fight for Their Post-Season Lives”

Tomorrow the Eagles will look to make a come-back from last month's loss to the defending Super Bowl Champion Giants (11-1) when they travel up the turnpike to the Meadowlands.

Earlier this season, the Giants marched into the City of Brotherly Love and beat the Eagles 36-31. They’ve now won three straight sports betting decision against Philadelphia and won all three games SU as underdogs.

Philadelphia (6-5-1)is keeping their fingers crossed for its first division win of 2008, over the Giants who are arguably the best team in the NFL.

The Eagles dropped a Nov. 9 contest to the Giants as New York's offense pushed around Jim Johnson's defense to the tune of 219 rushing yards in a 36-31 Giants victory.

The Eagles snapped a three-game winless streak on Thanksgiving night with Brian Westbrook's four touchdowns leading the way in the team's 48-20 rout of the Cardinals.

Donovan McNabb threw for four touchdowns while completing 27 of 39 passes. He did not turn the ball over and was sacked just once as the Eagles rolled up 437 yards of offense, including 130 by Westbrook. The defense chipped in four turnovers in the win.

The Giants have won seven straight, including Sunday's 23-7 win over Washington. With the victory, New York moved to 4-0 in the NFC East and a step closer to clinching a division title.

New York won despite an off-the-field incident involving standout receiver Plaxico Burress, who is unlikely to play against Philadelphia.

The Eagles currently trail the Panthers (9-3), Falcons (8-4), Cowboys (8-4) and Redskins (7-5) for the 2 NFC Wildcard spots.

The Eagles chances are dim at this point, but not impossible especially if they can finish strong.

There is hope as the Eagles have an exemplary track record finishing out seasons.

Meanwhile, the Giants are on the verge of clinching the NFC East and are on track to finish with home-field advantage.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is set for 1 p.m on FOX.
