A lot of Giants fans, myself included, didn’t have high expectations for this game. The Giants have a lot fo big injuries and needed a lot fo help to win last Monday. And the Eagles are supposed to be good.
This Sunday, the Giants were just plain better. They averaged 4 yards per rush and Eli had time to throw. The offensive line did its job. The offense did not turn the ball over.
The defense (thanks Aaron Ross) earned the Giants some turnovers. Despite being on the field for 36 minutes, they held it together.
By the way, as Michael the dog killer Vick whines and cries about the ‘late’ hit from Canty that took him out, why don’t we make some noise about the helmet to helmet hit on Ballard as he was going out of bounds? The Eagles have been a dirty team for a long time – now I have to listen to them whine while they continue to rack up illegal plays that go unpenalized against the Giants?
