NY Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles Battle For First Place

By Gary W. Marchese Jr.

Philadelphia, PA (Nov 21)-The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles will battle for first place in the NFC East tonight.  The two teams are tied atop the division with identical 6-3 records. 

The Eagles are flying high with their quarterback being an MVP candidate. Michael Vick who had been out of football and in jail for running a dog fighting operation is back on top of the world.  Here is some news and notes before tonight’s game. 

The Giants lost to the Dallas Cowboys 33-20 last week at home against the Cowboys.  The Giants have lost four straight games to the Eagles.  Last season they lost to them 40-17 and 45-38.  The two teams will meet for the 151st time in the regular season.  It is second most to only the Redskins who they have faced 154 times.  The Giants lead the series 79-69-2.  The Giants are only 6-6 against them since Tom Coughlin has been the head coach. 

The Giants will play the Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins the next two weeks at home.  The Giants would love to get a win tonight against the Eagles and move to 7-3 and sole possession of first place in the division but even if they don’t it isn’t the end of the world.  They would be 6-4 with a loss but have two winnable games against the Jaguars and Redskins the next two weeks.  If they do win they could be 9-3 after 12 games and just need a couple of wins in their last four games to have a chance at home field advantage. 

The Giants will look to put some points on the board against the Eagles who give up some points but the problem for them will be containing Vick. Vick has proven to be a beast this season, playing the best football of his career.  He is still running around but is more accurate then ever.  He has a cannon for an arm and has become accurate this season.  This is going to be a tough game, a typical NFC East game with both sides banging against each other and brutalizing each other. 

I am looking at a surprise here and the Giants winning the game 35-31.  I think the Giants will do enough on offense to win and the defense will do just enough to contain Vick and maybe get a couple of turnovers.
