As the Eagles to rebound after a loss to Dallas, the Giants finally got a win last Monday Night (Lucky for me, I didn’t watch). The Eagles come in with the return of QB Michael Vick. At 3-4, the Birds are still in ok shape. But, a loss does keep them from the division lead. A win helps them out and basically ends the Giants season. This Sunday, the mission is clear…a win is needed. Here are Two Things To Look vs. NY Giants   The Return of Michael Vick After missing two games with a hamstring injury, Vick returns to an offense that needed his help last week. He was the leading rusher against the Giants on Week 6. He can make the difference for Chip Kelly’s offense. Last week, they were held to 3 points and under 200 yards of offense. He shouldn’t be too rusty coming in. But, he should be that spark the offense needs.   Shady McCoy vs. the NY Giants Defense Other than Claude Giroux, the other missing Philly athlete was LeSean McCoy. Against Dallas, he was held to under 50 yards rushing. The last time these two teams faced off McCoy got less than 70 yards rushing. He said he must play better. He’s had great success against the Giants. Look that to continue.   Prediction Eagles are the better team. Period. If they score on offense, if the defense plays they’ve been playing for the last 3 games (allowing under 22 points a game), and have no turnovers, they’ll win this game. Eagles win 36-21
