    The Giants came out firing on all cylinders in their season and division opener against the rival Eagles. The game had the look off another classic NFC East battle early as it was tied 14-14 near the end of the half but Coach Matrix made an aggressive call right before the half (which almost always bites him in the ass). Ahmad Bradshaw had fumbled inside the 10 yard line a turned what would have been at least a 10 yard half time lead into a 14-14 tie so he really wanted to get those points back. With only a few seconds left on the clock Manning hit Wilson on a HB screen that was perfectly blocked and Wilson it took it over 80 yards for a TD as the clock expired for a 21-14 half time lead. The TD swung all the momentum back to the Giants.

    In the second half rookie QB Jared Myers tried to force the ball too much to tie the game back up and kept turning the ball over which allowed the Giants to get some cheap points and just blow up the scoreboard in the second half on the way to a 42-14 victory which will surely send a signal to the rest of the NFC East that the Giants aren't to be trifled with. Manning has finally gotten the handle on Coach Matrix's offense as just picked apart the Eagles D.
