The Giants defeated the Eagles, 15-7, in Philadelphia yesterday, picking up a game on them and the rest of their NFC East opponents. Dallas lost in the last seconds in Detroit, 31-30, and the Redskins – after taking a 21-7 lead over the Broncos in Denver – got overtaken by a second half surge and were crushed, 45-21.
The Giants are only two games behind with eight to go. They will take their bye next week. The Cowboys will host the Vikings; the Eagles are in Oakland and Washington is home vs the Chargers.
