Eagles have chance to beat Giants but ...

Will be rocking tonight.

OFFENSE: The Giants put points on the board, control the clock and generally make it tough for the other offense to get into a rhythm. Check: Giants.

DEFENSE: Except for a blown coverage on a Larry Fitzgerald TD the Eagles defenders played well enough to win last week. Check: Eagles.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Punter Mat McBriar debuts for the Eagles, who also have issues with longsnapper Jon Dorenbos (sprained ankle). The Giants have fewer issues. Check: Giants.

COACHING: Andy Reid has beaten the Giants in seven of the last eight games. A lot of it was with a different staff. Tom Coughlin is as good as it gets on game days. Check: Giants.

INTANGIBLES: Lincoln Financial Field was huge for the Eagles in their win over the Ravens. Check: Eagles.

ANALYSIS: Anyone think Michael Vick is playing better than Eli Manning right now? Eagles have a shot if Vick plays turnover-free and the defense gets pressure on Manning. Combining those elements has been difficult.

THE PICK: Make it Giants 24, Eagles 20.
