The Giants will come to Philadelphia next week on a two-game losing streak.

New York did not look good Sunday night, falling to the Cardinals, 24-17, at the Meadowlands.

The Giants turned it over four times, including three Eli Manning interceptions. After a hot start, Manning has completed less than 49 percent of his passes with two TDs and four interceptions in the last two weeks.

Down a touchdown, the Giants were driving with just over a minute left in the game when Manning was picked off by Antrel Rolle at the Cardinals' 21-yard line.

Earlier in the quarter, running back Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled in Arizona territory.

Overall, it was a sloppy performance for the Giants, who were also whistled for seven penalties.

Combine New York's loss with the Cowboys' win over the Falcons, and the landscape in the NFC East has changed. The Giants are still atop the division at 5-2, but Dallas is right behind them (4-2). With a win Monday against the Redskins, the Eagles would be tied with the Cowboys.

And so we're approaching that time of year when things start to get fun. Starting in Washington, the Birds begin a stretch of three straight against NFC East opponents.

Meanwhile, things do not get any easier for the Giants. Check out this stretch: at the Eagles, Chargers, Falcons, at the Broncos, Cowboys, Eagles.

But first things first. We'll be live chatting Monday night's Eagles-Redskins game. And in case you missed it, we did our weekly feature looking at who's picking the Eagles earlier this evening.
