One more ride... That's all that separates us from the postseason. For the Philadelphia Eagles, that means the opponent iis the hated New York Giants. Despite Philly's winning streak over Big Blue, five consecutive triumphs to be exact, the venom is just as intense as ever.

The hope is the good guys can generate some momentum ahead of the coming NFL Playoffs. The Birds, in all likelihood seem destined for the fifth seed.

The Eagles and Giants release their gameday inactives

Philly and the G-Men release their gameday inactives. Here's a look at who both sides are sitting out. The Eagles will tackle New York minus four starters.

The Giants name their inactives as well. Notable absences include wide receiver Parris Campbell and cornerback Deonte Banks. Here's their full list.

Update: The news isn't good. A.J. Brown suffers a knee injury.
