Loser of Giants-Eagles will play in London in 2016

The New York Giants still have something to play for in the NFC East. So do the suddenly Chip Kelly-free Philadelphia Eagles.

Both teams have been bounced from playoff contention, but Sunday's season finale between the pair of 6-9 clubs has international implications for the loser.

While the victor would notch a second-place finish in the division, the loser would carve out a third-place rank in the East and be penciled in for a Week 7 road game in London next season against the St. Louis Rams.

It's a minor footnote to an otherwise lost campaign for both squads. Alive for the division title just weeks ago, the Giants are left contemplating the future of coach Tom Coughlin while the Eagles have already decided that Kelly isn't the right man for the job in Philly.

With or without a scheduled voyage to Great Britain in 2016, both teams are set for plenty of upheaval come January.
