Under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football, it's almost time for another NFC East Divisional matchup. Both the Eagles and Giants are coming off their first wins of the season, and both look to continue their winning ways.
This game could come down to which teams defensive secondary steps up under the lights. We all know that McNabb and the Eagles can run a great offense when they are clicking. It also look as though Eli and the Giants have their offense back on track as well. If the secondary can have the same performance as last week against the Lions, then the Eagles should be okay. If the Giants are able to throw down field it could become an offensive battle. With a weak Giants defense the Eagles offense will be able to keep up, so it will be up to the Eagles defense to get after Eli early and often and slow down the running game as well.
The Eagles running game will depend on the health of Westbrook, if available the Eagles can rely on the run to sustain drives and chew up the clock. If he is unavailable, the combo of Buckhalter and Hunt should be able to handle the load, and the Eagles will use more passing plays to keep drives going.
This week Reggie Brown should\better get back on track. With Curtis getting the spotlight last week, the Giants defense will have a game plan to try and slow him up this week, which should give Brown a few more looks. Look for him to get 5 catches for 65 yards and a score.
Divisional games are always close, and this one has the feeling of being no different, I think turnovers could be the difference, so look for Eli to throw a 3rd quarter pick to turn the game around for the Eagles.
