Jason Peters

There are plenty of matchups that will determine the outcome of this NFC East showdown. But here are three I'm keeping an eye on.

Victor Cruz v. the Eagles secondary

Hakeem Nicks missed last week v. Carolina, but the Giants passing game didn't miss a beat. But a lot of the Giants' success had to do with the porous Panthers secondary.

Despite both the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles owning 2-1 records, these teams appear to be in different stratospheres right now.

After losing the opener to the Cowboys, the Giants have reeled off two straight wins over the Bucs and Panthers. The Eagles, on the other hand, skid by the Browns Week 1, beat the Ravens and fell to the undefeated Cardinals last week.

Records aside, the panic level in Philly is warranted.

News from Philadelphia....

Eagles' OT Peters' Achilles Injury May Jeopardize Season....Eagles' LT Jason Peters ruptured the Achilles tendon in right leg while working out this week. Outside of QB Michael Vick, he may be the player the Eagles can "least afford to lose."

According to Dave Zangaro of CSNPhilly: "The injury occurred Tuesday while Peters was training in Texas. He will have surgery to repair the tendon next Tuesday. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Steve Raikin of the Rothman Institute.....According to a team source, the Eagles haven't ruled Peters out for the entire season. More will be known after surgery is completed...."
