The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are each desperate for a victory on Sunday, so any advantage can prove helpful.

Meanwhile, the New York Giants had eight players who did not practice, in addition to the pending trade of Jon Beason to work with heading into week five.
Get ready, Julian Edelman. Here comes Victor Cruz.
