The New York Giants will kickoff Week 6 on Thursday Night Football. They will square off against their division rival, Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants are currently 1-4, at last place in the division. The Eagles on the other hand, are 2-3 which is good enough for second place in the NFC East.

The good news for both teams, is that the Washington Redskins are first in the division at 2-2. The bad news is, both of these teams haven’t looked great so far this year.

A loss for the Giants in this game would ultimately take them out of contention to win the NFC East.

The Eagles would love to end their rivals season very early in the season, and what better way than to do it in a prime-time game.

The Giants will want to try getting on a winning streak to silence the critics, plus keep the boos in New York at a minimum.

Either way, both squads will need to improve rather quickly to shape themselves into playoff teams.

For the Giants to come out victorious, they’ll need to get a few things accomplished. Here are the things they’ll need to do to improve their record to 2-4 on the season.
