Two NFC East teams are below .500 heading into Week 6. One was expected, while the other wasn’t.

The Eagles lost running back Jay Ajayi for the year with a torn ACL, and he was placed on injured reserve. Ajayi is just another addition to a list of injuries to the Eagles backfield, which also includes Corey Clement (quad) and Darren Sproles (hamstring; ruled out for Thursday).
Carson Wentz, though, has back-to-back 300-yard passing games, five touchdowns, and just one interception. Wentz’s rapport with tight end Zach Ertz – 20 receptions, 222 yards, touchdown since Wentz returned – is also a much needed boost for the Eagles offense.
For Big Blue, it doesn’t get any more excruciating than it did Sunday.
Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano hit an NFL record-tying 63-yard field goal as time expired to hand the Giants a 33-31 loss, their fourth of the season. The Eagles are familiar with results like the one the Giants suffered on Sunday, as it was a Josh Elliott 61- yard field goal last season that sunk the Giants season for good before it even got started.
For the first time in 37 games, since Tom Coughlin last coached a game, the Giants offense scored over 30 points. It was a dim silver lining in an otherwise disappointing end.
The Giants get good news as defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) will make his season debut; tight end Evan Engram (knee) will likely return Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.
