Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles escaped with their third victory of the season on Sunday night, 19-17, over the New York Giants. The win improves the Eagles to 3-1 on the year and drops the Giants to 2-2.
For an Eagles/Giants game, this one wasn’t as exciting as they usually are. Yes, it came down to the wire on a final field goal attempt by the Giants to try and win it, but the game didn’t really have the signature big-plays that usually define the rivalry of recent years.
The game was more about the defense playing well and being efficient on offense.
However, on a night when the Eagles honored the great Brian Dawkins, it was good to see a well-balanced game and of course, get the win.
On to the awards…
Though there weren’t many big plays or otherwise attention-grabbing moments, there were some things that deserve props, or “Way To Go guys!” (WTG!) -
Michael Vick. His stats weren’t astound
