New York Giants at Philadelphia
Week 6, ‘twas a tale of two ... pointers! The Giants stopped Washington’s last-minute two point attempt to capture their first win of the season, while the Eagles could not covert a two-point try of their own that would have tied their game at Baltimore with 1:55 to go. As a result, both New York and Philly enter this game with only one win, but whoever is victorious could be in first place at the end of the week. Yes, when it comes to the NFC East in 2020 it is the worst of times, it is the worst of times. But hey, these squads shouldn’t feel too bad about themselves, after all, 10 teams currently have 1 win or less (one team has zero ... J-E-T-S Barf! Fart! Yuck!). That’s almost one third of the league entering Week 7 in a lowly state. But only in this division do such squadrons still have realistic playoff aspirations. And so we find ourselves with this putrid Thursday night match-up that has real stakes. Here’s hoping that this game comes down to a two-point conversion again. And by that I mean that I hope the league decides to forgo a normal regulation and have these teams just alternate two-point attempts until someone tops the other. Like baseball extra innings, except it’s football and we don’t have to wait 4 hours to see who sucks less.
