The slate of games for NFC East teams is light this week, as the Dallas Cowboys and hometown Washington Redskins are on their bye, but that doesn't make the two remaining games any less compelling. The struggling Eagles take on the upstart Bills, and the surging Giants welcome Pete Carroll and his Seattle Seahawks to the east coast. Where and when to watch:
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Buffalo Bills: The notion of a "dream team" in Philadelphia has become laughable with each passing week, as the Eagles have stumbled and bumbled to a 1-3 start to the season. Quarterback Michael Vick has been bloodied and bruised, and the team most recently choked away a 20 point third quarter lead in a 24-23 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Buffalo has started the season surprisingly strong behind a versatile and prolific offense, though some of the shine has come off the Bills wagon thanks to a lackluster 23-20 loss to the Bengals in Week 4.

Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants: After losing their season opener to the Washington Redskins, the Giants have won three straight games, with much-maligned quarterback Eli Manning leading the team back from fourth quarter deficits in the last two contests. Manning, who lead the NFL in interceptions last year, has thrown 90 straight passes without a pick. The Seahawks hope their trip east goes better than the last, time, when they lost 44-6 to Manning and the Giants.
