Giants need a win, lots of help to reach playoffs

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: The playoff ramifications are slim. The Giants have barely a prayer, and the Eagles, well, they have other things on their mind. But Michael Vick is back. And that fact is enough to make this fairly fascinating for a game that largely means nothing. The electric quarterback will step in for injured Nick Foles and play what might well be his final game as an Eagle. Vick says he doesn't see it as an audition for 31 other teams, but assume everyone will be watching just the same. A motivated Vick against a downtrodden Giants defense could play out in so many ways. It's a total wild card, which makes it a fascinating game.
