The NFL hits the midpoint of the season this week, and once again the Sunday slate will be heavy with early 1 p.m. ET kickoffs. FOX is accommodating Major League Baseball's World Series, and they'll only broadcast one late afternoon Sunday game in Week 8 -- an NFC East clash between the Giants and Cowboys. This will be the second matchup of the season between those two Redskins' rivals, with the Cowboys knocking off the Giants during the NFL's season opener in New York.

The Eagles will also have a huge home test, as they host the league's only undefeated team, the Atlanta Faclons. Matt Ryan's club has looked shaky in their last two outings, but they still converted wins in the final minutes against lesser opponents. Now, they'll head to Philadelphia off a bye week, trying to knock off the Eagles who will face their first test with new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.

Those two games combined with the Redskins huge game on the road against the Steelers should make for another wild week in the NFC East. Here's the complete Week 8 schedule in the NFL:

Thursday, Oct. 25

Sunday , Oct. 28

Monday , Oct. 29
