Luckily for the Eagles this week they will face a lesser Manning. Aside from Cooper Manning, Eli is probably the worst of the historic Manning quarterbacks. The Eagles enter the game 1-0 in the division, trailing the Cowboys by only game. With what appears to be the most pathetic division in the league, the Eagles could probably win eight games and still make the playoffs.
The Eagles have certainly racked up the yards this season, but failure to turn all those yards into points has left the Birds unable to compensate for a simply atrocious defense. Shady McCoy enters the game leading the league in rushing yards with 468 and the Eagles will look to him and Michael Vick to lead a balanced and fast-paced offensive attack.
Can the Eagles defense play good for the first time since the opening half of the season against Washington? Lets hope, as a terrible Giants squad will enter the contest hungry for a win.
