    It was a matchup of two teams atop the NFC East. The Eagles came in with a 6-1 record, while the Giants entered at 5-2. We would leave either in a tie atop the division or a little separation for the Eagles. To Philadelphia we go:

    The Eagles opened the ball game on offense, and QB Ryan Tannehill began his masterful day. He, and RB Lesean McCoy, led the Eagles all the way down to the Giants goal line. In an area of concern all year for the Eagles, their goal line offense would again only come away with three points. Inside the 1 yard line Coach Lazaroe opted to go for the field goal as he has done all season. "In that situation, I feel like we could go for it and be successful on 4th down and the TD." He said postgame. "But that early in the game, we as an organization would rather just take the points. We game into this game with the 2nd most points per game, a stat that you don't have if you leave points on the field." On the following Giants possession, the G-Men would be held to a quick 3 and out and be forced to punt. Tannehill would again lead the Eagles down the field, this time hooking up with WR Desean Jackson for the TD. 10-0 Eagles. After a promising Giants drive, QB Jake Locker would be picked off inside the Eagle 10 yard line. It only took 1 play and a guy named LeSean McCoy to make the Giants pay for that mistake. McCoy was seemingly wrapped up in the backfield when he somehow spun out of the tackle, and broke it wide left and down the sideline. 90 yards later the Eagles had a commanding 17-0 lead. The Giants pulled Locker thereafter after a woeful performance where he went 2 for 9 for 7 yards and 2 INTs. Enter QB Tim Bell. And man did he look good. It looked like a completely different Giants team with Bell under center. Operating mostly out of the no huddle formation, Bell would lead his team back from a 24-0 halftime deficit. The Giants would cut the lead to 24-6. And after an added Eagles field goal, eventually 27-13. That's how the ball game would end, 27-13 Eagles.

    Next Up:

    The Eagles (7-1) will travel to the desert and Arizona to take on the Cardinals (5-2). The Eagles beat the NFC Wests' 49ers a couple weeks back, and will look for a repeat performance in Phoenix. The Giants (5-3) will travel down south to Houston to take on the Texans (5-2). Both of those teams are fighting for a division title and can not afford to fall another game back in their respective races.

    Players of the Game:

    QB Ryan Tannehill - 11 of 14, 257 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs, QBR 158.7
    RB Lesean McCoy - 18 carries, 143 yards, 1 TD
