The Philadelphia Eagles extended their winning record over the New York Giants to 8 of the last 9 with the 19-17 defeat of Big Blue on Sunday Night Football. Philadelphia once again secured the victory in the last moments of the game and denied Eli Manning the opportunity to come alive in the 4th quarter, as has been his calling card in recent games.
Weighing heavily on the Giants, no doubt, is the fact that they are 2-0 in the NFC East, having lost their opening game to the Dallas Cowboys. I know. It’s hard not to smile.
The Eagles now extend their record to 3-1, wit the victories in all three wins secured by a mere four total points.
Here are five observations from the game Sunday night’s win:
1. No turnovers. That bears repeating: No. Turnovers. For the first time this season, the Eagles did not have to battle back from costly mistakes to claw their way towards the finish line. It’s tough enough to win games in the National Football without shooti...

It seems almost predictable that Eli Manning would lead the New York Giants on another game-winning drive.
He'd done it in two Super Bowls and 24 other times in his career entering Sunday night's contest against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. The momentum built even before the Eagles were called for pass interference twice on the would-be last-second clincher.
Eli Manning is human in the fourth quarterMr. Manning has really showed some magic when it comes to the Giants being down in the fourth quarter the past few years, especially against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only two weeks ago.Against the Eagles this week though, he seemed to come back to Earth with a lackluster performance in the fourth.Manning began the game's final quarter...
It has not been quite the start to the 2012 NFL season the defending Super Bowl champions may have hoped for, but the New York Giants are still just one game back in the NFC East through the first quarter of the season. With a 2-2 record, it has been an up and down start for Eli Manning and the Giants as they look to successfully defend their championship.
If that is to happen, a...

Leading up to this week’s game against the NFC East rival New York Giants, many called for Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid to be fired. Many felt the blame should have been laid at quarterback Michael Vick’s...
This will be the Giants third prime time game through the first four weeks of the season. A brutal, daunting task which has proven advantageous for New York, at least record wise. The Giants are coming off of a mini-bye since they beat down the Panthers last Thursday night while the Eagles are coming off of a Sunday afternoon beat down of their own. Only problem: they were the ones...
