This week the Philadelphia Eagles won’t have the difficult task of attempting to stop a perfect offense and score against a perfect defense. They also won’t face the embarrassment of having their game switched to their division rival’s because of a horrible score. This week they travel to Met Life Stadium to play against their division opponent, the winless New York Giants (0-4) this Sunday at 1: 00 PM ET.

The second is Miracle at the new Meadowlands part two. The hero of the Miracle Two was DeSean Jackson. Miracle One’s hero is current ESPN analyst and former safety, Herman Edwards Jr.
