The 3-6-1 Eagles are no longer in first place in the NFC East.

WFT and the New York Giants are with 4-7 records.

But if the Birds play against type and beat Seattle tonight at the Linc, they’ll be back in first tomorrow morning.

Despite losing quarterb ack Daniel Jones to a hamstring injury in the third quarter, the Giants fought past a Joe Burrow-less Cincinnati.


Backup quarterback Colt McCoy didn’t do much, but the Giants scored three field goals following Jones’s injury, which was enough to secure the team’s third straight win.
