Eagles vs. Giants: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

The New York Giants won't be looking at playoff scenarios on Sunday. They're just trying to win against a Philadelphia Eagles team that once again has Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy at their disposal. Then, they'll have to hope everything else falls into place.

It's bleak for the New York Giants, but if they want to make the playoffs, they need to beat the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, so they'll try to focus on that.

There's a laundry list of other things New York needs to extend its season past Week 17: the NFC East title is out of contention, so they'll hope the Washington Redskins win to move the Dallas Cowboys to .500 and out of the playoffs, plus, they'll need the Green Bay Packers to beat the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions to beat the Chicago Bears. If that happens, they could make the playoffs, but they can't worry about that, or a dismal finish to the season featuring back-to-back blowouts against the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens that's dropped them from 8-5 to 8-7. They just have to win on Sunday and hope the rest works out.

The Eagles had resigned themselves to rebuilding after losing eight in a row, a skid that will likely end Andy Reid's tenure in charge of the club. But they'll have to play Michael Vick this week instead of rookie NIck Foles after the quarterback with a bright future broke his hand. That injury robs Foles of potentially valuable experience, but might give the Eagles the best chance of spoiling the Giants' playoff chances, as Vick had a similar passing year with much better ability to scramble out of the pocket. The team was only 1-5 with Foles as the starter after winning three games under Vick. LeSean McCoy is also back in the lineup after missing several games with a concussion. One of the Eagles' four wins this year games was against the Giants, a hard-fought 19-17 game with Lawrence Tynes' potential game-winning field goal falling just short.

Here's the info on how to watch Sunday's game:
