The Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants Sunday night for a battle for first place in the NFC East. With wins coming both the Redskins and the Cowboys earlier in the day, the game became very big by the time 8:00pm rolled around. Despite a worry by some that this game would be a let down after such a tremendous and historic win the previous week over the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, the Eagles overcame some mistakes and continued bad officiating to beat the Giants by ten points. This places the Eagles atop the NFC East all alone and in the middle of the pack of the best teams now in the hunt for a playoff spot as November winds down. Vick was not at his best, and there were key end zone drops by the ol’ reliables, Jason Avant and Desean Jackson. The Eagles Defense played a great game, and although not recording a sack, had three interceptions and a fumble recovery that helped win the game. Next, the Eagles travel to Chicago and take on the Bears in a very tough, and possibly critical NFC matchup.
