Giants riding high into Philly
Any Giants fans out there having trouble getting hyped up for the annual visit to Philadelphia? Didn't think so.
The excitement should be especially strong as Big Blue, coming off a 36-7 victory at Carolina last Thursday, could have first place to itself with a win over the Eagles. Here's a closer look at the game. (NBC, 8:20 p.m.)
Pick on Vick
Eagles signalcaller Michael Vick has thrown six INTs, tied for the league lead. The Giants defense has feasted on errant passes this season, picking off six of their own. That spells trouble for the Philadelphia QB.
Rest for the weary
The Giants' beat down of the Panthers last week was all the more impressive considering the lack of starters available. Lead running back Ahmad Bradshaw and No. 1 wideout Hakeem Nicks were inactive due to injuries, though both are expected to return Sunday night. And head coach Tom Coughlin can keep them fresh thanks to capable reserves Andre Brown (RB) and Ramses Barden (WR).
Eli Manning has been torching secondaries this season, and a lot of that is thanks to his blockers - he's only been sacked five times. While the Eagles as a team have only seven sacks, star defensive end Jason Babin has 2.5 of those. It'll be up to the O-line to keep Eli safe.
