    This is a suitcase weekend. Some teams have their bags packed to go home before the games are played.

    That is not the case for Philadelphia and the Giants — the former looking for postseason advantage, and the latter looking for a postseason appearance. The Giants have played like a desperate team, pulling out all the stops. Their secondary is now healthy, and if Michael Strahan gets to A.J. Feeley enough, the Eagles' six-game winning streak will end.
