The Oldest Rivalry in Football: Giants vs. Eagles

The oldest rivalry in football continues Sunday night at 8:20pm on NBC. Already, we’ve seen the best and worst from these teams through the first 3 games. There will be some serious matchups coming in to this game.

Eli Manning vs. Nnamdi Asomougha

Manning needs to make sure that he doesn’t make any careless throws. Watch out for Nnamdi Asomougha, because he could take one to the house. As long as Eli doesn’t throw too many picks and is able to find Cruz and Nicks open, the Giants should be just fine.

Micheal Vick vs.  Jason Pierre-Paul

We have not seen the best from Vick or the Philadelphia Eagles. They lead the league with 12 turnovers, after having just 8 all of last season. Again, we’ll probably see the worst from Vick, and possibly the best performance from Pierre-Paul thus far.

Victor Cruz vs. Desean Jackson

Wideout vs. Wideout matchup. This will probably be the matchup that decides who wins the game. Cruz has been unstoppable, while Jackson has been impressive, but not good enough for a ‘bounce-back’ season.  Cruz will probably be doing the salsa in the end zone while Jackson just makes catches for about 10-20 yards, and probably a punt return for a TD.

My call: This game will be competitive, but the Giants have the odds in their favor. The defense will pressure Vick quite a bit, while Cruz should be salsa-ing all night. NY Giants: 30, Philadelphia Eagles 20.
