Giants-Eagles

The Giants (6-9) close out their season by hosting their bitter rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6), in an NFC East battle that has no playoff implications. New York is attempting to finish on a high note with their fourth straight victory while the Eagles are going for their second consecutive 10-win season under head coach Chip Kelly.

With a win Sunday night in Philadelphia and a Dallas loss in Seattle, the Giants can improve to 4-2 and move into a three-way tie with the Eagles and Cowboys for first place in the NFC East.

This will be the Giants' third nationally-televised game of 2014 - all road games. They lost the opener to Detroit 35-14 on Monday Night Football and defeated the Redskins 45-14 on Thursday night in Week 4.

A win streak is a win streak, but again, the Giants have plenty to work on offensively. Luckily it?s been the defense that has carried the team to two straight wins.

When looking at the box score of this game, you?d probably think that the Giants put together some impressive offensive drives.

Eli Manning completed 25 passes for 246 yards and didn?t turn the ball over for the second straight week. Two of his receivers ? Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks ? each caught seven passes. And Peyton Hillis ran for 70 yards on 20 carries.

Although the scoreboard doesn't indicate it, the Giants completely dominated the first 27 minutes of the first half vs the Eagles this afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

K Josh Brown kicked four FGs (from 40, 44, 33 and 46 yards) as the Giants defense thoroughly throttled QB Michael Vick (6/9, 31 yards, 1 INT and 1 yard rushing), forcing him to leave the game with re-injured hamstring.

Rookie QB Matt Barkley relieved Vick right before the half and took the Eagles deep into Giants' territory on a 10-play drive that ended when Terrell Thomas forced Barkely to fumble. The ball was recovered by Jacquian Williams on the Giants' 12 yard line.

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

In Week 8, the Giants (1-6) head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles (3-4) in an NFC East divisional showdown.

The Eagles earned a 36-21 victory over the Giants in Week 5 at MetLife Stadium. The Giants still lead the all-time regular season series, 81-74-2.

There may have been pink everywhere today (to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness), but this one was anything but pretty.

The Giants lost in sloppy fashion to Philadelphia Eagles this afternoon in a game in which they held the lead twice, once in each half, but miscues and penalties allowed the Eagles to walk out of MetLife Stadium 36-21 winners.

They are now 0-5 and have perhaps crossed the Rubicon on this dismal 2013 season.

We thought this season couldn?t get any worse for the 0-4 New York Football Giants. But I guess they still found a way to surprise us.

Big Blue dropped to 0-5 Sunday with a 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but the worst thing about this game was the Giants were actually alive for most of the way and totally blew it late.

However, three Eli Manning interceptions in the fourth quarter sealed the Giants? losing fate. He continued to add to his league-lead in interceptions with now 12.

The swoon continues. The Giants came out and scored a TD on their first drive and then fell flat for the rest of the half. Mistakes and missed opportunities peppered a more spirited performance. The scoreboard says 19-7 Eagles, but it could be a lot worse right now.

Hakeem Nicks has 120 yards on six receptions.

David Wilson scored the only Giants' TD but sustained a neck injury shortly after and Rueben Randle appeared to have injured his wrist on many of the long passes Eli threw his way.

I?m honestly expecting a slugfest. I?m fully aware that the Giants have scored a total of just seven points the last two weekends, but the Eagles defense is filled with holes, especially in the secondary. My guess is that the Giants will still try to establish the run but only to set up big plays downfield. This is the week where I foresee Eli Manning breaking out and hitting all his weapons.

While the Eagles may be 1-3, they?ve shown they can score points offensively with Chip Kelly?s fast-paced system. I expect that continue, but Michael Vick is known for turning the ball over. But Vick is also known for giving the Giants fits, and that?s why I?m expecting a wild affair at MetLife. It?s going to be a real war out there, since both teams will be fighting for their lives ? which is a shame since it?s still very early in the season. This is the week the Giants finally get into the win column. It won?t be easy, and it likely won?t be pretty as far as an all-around effort. But getting win No. 1 is the first step to turning this season around.....Giants 34, Eagles 30

The Giants hope to get into the win column Sunday at 1 p.m. when they host the Philadelphia Eagles, who have dropped three straight games after an opening week win.

The Giants pounded the Eagles 42-7 in Week 17 last season, but that game had no real meaning for either side. However, Sunday?s game has huge implications for two teams desperately trying to stay alive in a weak NFC East.

That's right. Philadelphia PR DeSean Jackson's game-winning punt return against the Giants on December 19, 2010 has been voted The Greatest Play in NFL History by NFL.com's readers. This ultimate insult of a play beat out 49ers QB Steve Young's TD scramble vs the Vikings in 1988.

Like all Giant fans, this play will be lodged in my brain for the rest of my life. It was a play that never should have happened, as we all know. I was in the press box that day and what really burned my @$$ was having to endure some members of the Philly media, who were jumping up and down like a gaggle of grade school girls at a Justin Bieber concert. What a disgrace.

Giant Rout Too Little, Too Late to Save Season

by Jon Wagner SNYGiants Columnist

After enduring yet another second half swoon under head coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants finally put forth the type of effort in their regular season finale that might have given them a chance to repeat as Super Bowl champions, had they only played with a similar sense of urgency more often this season.

Instead, a 42-7 dismantling of the lowly Philadelphia Eagles (4-12) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday left the Giants (9-7) with a solid 6-2 home record, but out of the NFC playoffs.

Who would thunk it? The Giants came out firing on all cylinders this afternoon at MetLife Stadium, scoring TDs on their first four possessions against the lame duck regime of the Eagles. They never looked back. The final was 42-7. Unfortunately for the Giants and their fans, it was too little, too late.

The win gave the Giants nine on the season, the same number as last year, but not enough to get them a pass into the Super Bowl tournament. They needed Detroit to knock off Chicago (along with other circumstances) in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Lions lost, 26-24, at Ford Field ending any designs the Giants may have had of defending their title.

It is the third time in the past four seasons the Giants have failed to qualify for the postseason.

Kel Dansby: The Giants will give their final gutsy performance of the season against the Eagles. The pass rush will look elite against this Eagles offensive line & turnover prone Mike Vick. They'll collect the victory but fall short of the playoffs. Giants 27, Eagles 17

Sam Spiegelman: All season we've seen the Giants rise to the occasion when need be, but when their playoffs lives were at stake -- against Atlanta and Baltimore -- they failed to show. I expect the Giants to give it their all vs. Philly, but I'm afraid it's too late and the odds are stacked against them. Giants 23, Eagles 16

Jim Mancari: The Giants need to win to keep any slim hope of a playoff berth alive. I believe they will beat the Eagles, and in fact I believe they will beat the Eagles soundly. But I'm not confident that all the other teams that need to lose will all lose. It could happen, and the great thing about sports is that it can happen. The Giants just need to worry about themselves and hope for a little bit of luck. Giants 31, Eagles 17

Eagles' RB LeSean McCoy has trampled the Giants recently, averaging over 120 yards per game in his last three vs New York.

The Giants (8-7) will attempt to keep their faint playoff hopes alive when they host their biggest nemesis - the 4-11 Philadelphia Eagles - today at MetLife Stadium.

What's at stake for the Giants.....they need to win and have Chicago, Minnesota and Dallas all lose in order to continue playing this season. A win would also give the Giants a winning season at 9-7 and recapture some of the pride they lost the second half of the season.

The Eagles want so badly to beat the Giants this week, they're willing to take a $3 million gamble by playing oft-injured QB Michael Vick to do so. According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly, the Eagles stand to lose that much if Vick gets hurt in tomorrow's game and can't catch on with a new team in 2013....

If Vick wants to be employed next year, first and foremost he needs to be healthy. The Eagles almost certainly will release him before they have to pay a dime of his $15.5 million 2013 salary.

The Eagles also have money to lose if Vick is seriously injured in the final game. Because of an injury clause in Vick?s contract, the team is on the hook for up to $3 million of Vick?s base salary next year if the quarterback can?t find another team to sign him. Any contract Vick would earn next year that called for less than $3 million because of an injury, the Eagles would owe the rest.

It's all hands on deck this week as the Giants try to salvage their season against the Eagles at MetLife this Sunday. RB Ahmad Bradshaw (knee) means business, practicing on a Thursday, and DE Justin Tuck (shoulder) also returned to duty.

It wasn't all good news, however. CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring), C David Baas (hip/shoulder) and DT Chris Canty (knee) did not practice and Hakeem Nicks (knee) did little. All will try to play.

Tom Coughlin had few answers for reporters yesterday when asked how he can instill confidence in his group:

Heading into Week 17, the Giants are technically still alive in the playoff race. However, it?s going to take a miracle and plenty of help for Big Blue to reach the postseason.

Eli Manning is aware of what his team must do to keep hope alive. It starts with winning at home against arguably the worst team in the NFC: the Philadelphia Eagles.

?I knew there was going to be a chance,? Manning said. ?I?m obviously disappointed that this is what we have to rely on now, but that?s the position we?re in now. If anything, you want to try to play, if the season is going to end, you want to try to end it on the highest note possible. At least go out there and play better football than we have over the last two weeks.?

Back to work for the sagging Giants today. They have one game left: a face-saver against their toughest rival, Philadelphia. The Eagles have been a dumpster fire all year, winning only four games. One of those wins came against the Giants (of course it did). The Eagles can always count on the Giants to spit the bit in their presence. New York is 1-8 in their last nine regular season meetings against Philly.

The Giants' inability to get past the Eagles has ruined nearly every season in recent memory sans two. Had the Giants beaten Philly in Week 4 (they lost, 19-17) they would be sitting at 9-6 with their playoff destiny still in their pocket. But, no....they can't beat the Eagles even in years when Philly is down.

Michael Vick will be back to perplex the Blue defense, which has done a good job perplexing itself the past two weeks. If he comes in here and the beats the Giants, it's going to be hard for New York to bring all the players and coaches in that locker room back in 2013.

Giants Suffer Another Last Minute Loss to Philadelphia?

In the NFL, there are no moral victories in a loss. Especially when you lose another ugly game to your most hated rival.

That's what happened to the Giants tonight vs the Eagles in Philadelphia. After taking a 17-16 lead with 6:45 remaining, the Giants surrendered a 26-yard FG to the Eagles with 1:49 left which proved to be the difference as they continued their losing ways against Philly.

But the Giants didn't let this one get away easily, though. On their final drive inside the final minute, they went to Ramses Barden three times and three times penalties were called. Two pass interference calls went against the Eagles to move the Giants into FG range. The third one went against Barden, moving the ball back to just outside Lawrence Tynes' range.

Fourth Quarter:

- Eli opens the fourth quarter by throwing an interception in the end zone to DRC.

- The Eagles immediately capitalize on the mistake by the Giants and move the ball using LeSean McCoy. The defense for the Giants seems to be showing signs of fatigue, McCoy is taking advantage of cutback lanes left by the defensive ends.

There are plenty of matchups that will determine the outcome of this NFC East showdown. But here are three I'm keeping an eye on.

With Nicks out, Ramses Barden and Domenik Hixon will fill in. As we know, both are capable players. Don't count rookie Rueben Randle out, either.

Despite both the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles owning 2-1 records, these teams appear to be in different stratospheres right now.

After losing the opener to the Cowboys, the Giants have reeled off two straight wins over the Bucs and Panthers. The Eagles, on the other hand, skid by the Browns Week 1, beat the Ravens and fell to the undefeated Cardinals last week.

Records aside, the panic level in Philly is warranted.

Last night in Baltimore, the refs were welcomed back from their lockout with cheers from the M&T Bank Stadium bleachers.

In all, 18 flags were thrown. And no penalty or call was remotely close to as controversial as any of the calls from Monday night's Packers-Seahawks matchup.

Despite being embraced by NFL fans, some players aren't expected the referees to be up to the bar on their officiating just yet.

The moment Vince Young (now of the Buffalo Bills) uttered the phrase ?dream team?, a foolish, premature description of the Philadelphia Eagles? rapid accumulation of upper-echelon free agents last offseason, the seeds were planted for disappointment, missed expectations and failure. After a convincing, 31-13, thrashing of the St. Louis Rams in its first game, Philadelphia lost eight of its next 11 games. Their failed free-agent science experiment crumbled in epic fashion, and Andy Reid?s hot-seat burned vigorously, yet the Eagles managed to salvage their season, somewhat, by winning five of their last eight for a respectable 8-8 record.

Their late-season hot streak was maddeningly frustrating for Philadelphia fans who knew what their team was capable of all season. The positive takeaway was that the future looked bright, that their late surge would springboard them to greater heights next season, when perhaps their ?dream team? talent would manifest itself in a division championship and postseason success.

SI. com NFL columnist Don Banks agrees with this sentiment, saying as much in a column released over the weekend.

Of course the NFL would do this. No one wants to go anywhere on New Years Day. One did not have to partake in strong drink to still be groggy this morning from last night. Many, at the least, watched the ball drop before heading off to bed. Thanks to the NFL for giving Giant fans a few extra hours to get their bearings back.

The Ginats and Cowboys make for good TV ratings and they also make for good theatre. History has been made between these two teams and tonight another chapter will be added to the ongoing saga.

Tonite will be the 100th meeting between the Cowboys and the Giants. The Cowboys, who entered the NFL in 1960, have won 56 of those games thanks to the Giants mailing in most of the 60's and all of the 70's. ?More recently, the Giants have won four out of the last five vs. Dallas.

There are better teams in this year's NFL than the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. Statistics and the naked eye have proven that. But when it comes to who America loves to see play, these two are at the top of the list.

So when it came to flexing this game to NBC for the regular-season finale, it was a no-brainer for the NFL. ?Giants-Cowboys games mean big ratings. Giants-Cowboys games that have ultimate playoff ramifications have astronomical ratings.

Not what we expected, is it? The Giants' offense has been awful and the defense is showing those lapses again. ?If Vince Young wasn't so rusty (or pathetic) the Eagles would be seriously taking to the Giants here.

Eli Manning is 7/18 for 77 yards with an INT and two sacks. The running game seems to be getting worse, with only 19 yards on 10 carries.

On defense, the Giants are having a difficult time getting to Vince Young, who hasn't been sacked, but has thrown two INTs and almost tossed a third - to Corey Webster - but replays showed the nose of the ball had hit the ground.

With Vick and Maclin Out, Line Climbs to 5 1/2

With QB Michael Vick sidelined for Sunday's game vs the Giants with broken ribs, the betting line for the divisional showdown between the Eagles and the Giants has shot up from Giants - 3 to Giants - 5 1/2. ?Vince Young, who is 2-0 lifetime against the Blue, will be the likely starter.

Trends don't really mean much in this rivalry, which over the years has produced some of the league's most memorable moments. This season, the Eagles have blown five games in the fourth quarter while the Giants have a propensity for pouring on in the final period.
