New York Giants bye week is spent and its back to business as usual, with Big Blue facing the Philadelphia Eagles next week after the eagles had an impressive outing on Sunday night versus the Dallas Cowboys. 

The Giants are in a pretty good position in the NFC East after a lackluster start of the season. 

This is not a rare position for the Giants who found themselves in the same position last season before tanking the rest of the season limping through the remainder of the season 2-7 over the final games.   Fans are hoping for a better turn of events for the current season, with a deep receiver roster and QB with an itchy trigger finger. 

Most of Big Blue nation are confident this season will see the Giants land in the playoffs.   And if today’s record were the deciding factor, New York would be in 6th place.
