Watch NFL NY Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles

The 1-6 New York Giants were remarkably able to win their first game and now hit the road against the 3-4 Philadelphia Eagles in week 8 in hopes of commencing the unthinkable, a winning streak. The Eagles will have franchise and recently injured quarterback Michael Vick back under center today as we watch NFL Sunday Football online free live streaming New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles on Fox by following the links presented below.

The Giants come into today’s game having dropped eight straight road games and, until a win last week, six straight to kick off the 2013 NFL schedule. They beat the Vikings in an ugly game on Monday Night Football by a score of 23-7. Both teams made countless mistakes, but the Giants came up with the big plays when they needed them and were able to send a reeling Vikings team packing.

What was more surprising than a Giants win last week was Eli Manning not throwing an interception. The NFL’s leader in picks at 15 played a clean game on paper, though he had at least one pass during that Vikings win throw directly into the chest of a Vikings defender who in turn dropped it. Apart from mistakes that weren’t registered, Manning threw for 200 yards on 23-39 passing, including a touchdown pass.

While wide receiver Rueben Randle has been an offensive spark for the Giants with four touchdown catches in his past three games, Manning is still getting little help from his receivers. The 200 yards put up six days ago might have been more if the Giants receivers came back to the ball when Manning was forced out of the pocket. Instead, they mostly stood around and Manning had to throw it away or throw uncatchable balls. In addition, Hakeem Nicks continues to drop passes and has yet to haul in a touchdown this season.

Last week’s game saw newly signed Peyton Hillis play his first game for the Giants with decent results. He ran for 36 yards on 18 carries, but more importantly he punched through a short touchdown run with a great effort. New York needs productivity from Hillis when we watch Eagles vs Giants online free today, with Brandon Jacobs down and David Wilson out for likely the rest of the season.

Michael Vick started for the Eagles when these two clubs played one another a month ago. It was in that football game that Vick got hurt, and today’s game will see his return to the starting lineup. If Vick can get his legs under him, look for at least a 50 yard rushing performance from the Eagles quarterback as they will be looking to spread the field and keep the Giants linemen and linebackers honest.

Philly had started the season hot but has struggled since Vick went down. With Nick Foles going down with a concussion in the third quarter of last week’s loss to the Cowboys at home last week, Vick’s return is timely. The Eagles will need the best Vick has if they want to break their nine-game home losing streak currently ongoing, a franchise worst.

On the injury front in this week 8 football game, the Giants has lost David Baas to the injured reserve for the second time this season. The starting center banged up his knee on the opening drive of Monday Night’s win and will be out for at least the next two games. Rookie quarterback Matt Barkley will be backing up Vick with Nick Foles out of action due to his concussion.

Sunday’s 2013 NFL schedule week 8 football game between the NY Giants and Philadelphia Eagles has a start time of 1pm EST / 10am PST and can be found on TV on Fox. Unfortunately Fox does not offer a free live online stream option for the game, but you can watch NFL Sunday Football online free live streaming: Giants vs Eagles on Fox as a subscriber of DirecTV with Max right here on mobile devices includes iPads and cell phones. The NY Giants are still playing slopping so with Vick back, I expect the Eagles to be much improved and finally break their home losing streak against a division foe.
