The New York Football Giants hope that earning their first victory of the season on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings will be a springboard to greater success in the second half of the 2013 NFL season. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles found out on Sunday that they are not ready for prime time, as the Birds fell to the rival Cowboys 17-3. These two longtime rivals renew pleasantries in Philadelphia this Sunday.
Justin Tuck refuses to blame the New York Giants’ woe-and-five start on quarterback Eli Manning and the team’s struggling offense.
Even if the Giants QB straightens himself out by Thursday’s game in Chicago — another likely loss for 0-6 — it will be far too little, way too late. Like the cops at a crime scene say, “Go home, folks, nothing to see here.”
Giants were leading 21-19 in third quarter, but then gave up 17 straight points to drop to 0-5 on the season.
Wilson nearly was trapped in the end zone for a safety. His return is questionable.
Giants starting cornerbacker Corey Webster misses his third straight game with groin injury. He had been listed as doubtful.
Hill played in 12 games last season but missed four games while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on PEDs.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are each desperate for a victory on Sunday, so any advantage can prove helpful. With that in mind, this week’s injury report hands a decided advantage to the Eagles, which shows only two players on it. 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.
This losing streak has to end sometime for the New York Giants, and if this is the week, it would not be impossible for the Giants to get back in the putrid NFC East race.
It has to happen Sunday against the Eagles, though. Already, just a quarter of the way through the schedule, the Giants are running out of chances.

By now you’ve heard: Antrel Rolle thinks the Giants can salvage their season by running the table after an 0-4 start. He’s on a mission to make everyone believe in Big Blue — even some in his own locker room.
The only thing that separates the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is Philly’s surprise win over the Washington Redskins on opening day. While the G-men have dropped four straight to open the 2013 NFL campaign, the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including a 54-20 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Both teams are focused on playing 60 minutes of football in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s first tilt in the Meadowlands.
