Giants-Eagles, Saints-Packers highlight Week 4 showdowns

When in doubt, you can't go wrong with a fierce, nasty NFC East feud. Where New York Giants pass rusher Osi Umenyiora is forced to defend himself against being called "a ballerina" by Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who makes no apologies for loudly tormenting the player who once called him "Lady Gaga."

You think there won't be fireworks in Sunday night's Giants-Eagles showdown? Oh, there will be. There always are.

But the two teams' unique situations make this bout all the more enticing. The G-Men are hitting their stride after a slow start, coming off a dominant win at Carolina despite being plagued by injuries. And the Eagles, well, they spent most of this week parsing the words of coach Andy Reid, who left the door ajar on quarterback Michael Vick's future as his starter. If the Giants beat Vick around, this could get very interesting.

Safe to say, we'll be watching this one.

Here is your Week 4 primer, with games ranked in order of intrigue, from 1 to 15:
