Wow. Wow. Wow.

There might be no better place for the Eagles to finish the regular season than their home-away-from-home at MetLife Stadium, where the team owns a perfect 2-0 record.

First, the Eagles had the Miracle at the New Meadowlands in 2010 which was simply one of the all-time great comebacks and finishing plays. Last season, Vince Young rallied the team for a fourth quarter, come-from-behind win.

The Eagles have to face the team that most players would call their biggest rival knowing that they took home the Lombardi Trophy in 2011. In addition to taking on their biggest rival, the Eagles could possibly have a chance to win the division, secure playoff seeding or, maybe, knock the Giants out of the postseason altogether.

Every game in Week 17 is currently slotted for a 1 PM start, but if there is anything of significance on the line don't be surprised to see this moved to either a 4:15 national start or, even better yet, a prime time 8:30 kickoff.

This has everything in place to potentially be an epic regular season finale. The storylines would be endless. Then again, maybe the Eagles will be 15-0 resting their starters for the playoffs?
