Get hyped for your 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles as they host the 2-10 New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Eli Manning returns to Philadelphia in what should be a barn burner, an instant classic between two NFC East behemoths.

Season's on the line. And the whole nation is watching.

It’s a good message, if we’re being honest, but the delivery leaves something to be desired. Joe has been here for something like five minutes and hasn’t even managed a baseball game yet, so it’s interesting to see him appear in a pump up video for another team.
But hey, maybe the Birds get motivated. Maybe they shrug off the three-game losing streak and hammer Eli into the turf tonight. Perhaps this is the beginning of a run that leads to a division title.
We’re gonna find out later.
