The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (still feels weird to type that in a real, non-ironic sentence) head into the Meadowlands tonight for a divisional scrap against the rival Giants. A year removed from defeating the Patriots in epic fashion for their first-ever Super Bowl victory, the Eagles have looked mortal during the encore, stumbling to a 2-3 record to begin the season. Most recently, Philadelphia lost to Minnesota in a rematch of last year’s NFC title game. Going into the season, many (myself included) expected that game to be a slobber-knocker between two heavyweight playoff contenders. Instead, it looked like a pillow fight between two also-rans.
