Featured Game 2 Week 14 - Philadelphia Eagles At NY Giants

            The Sunday night game this week may well decide who wins the NFC East. If the Cowboys continue their December slump the door is open for one of these teams to take the division. The winner of this game will be in good shape for that, or a Wildcard berth.
