>> AND THE GIANTS WILL START

WHERE THE EAGLES HAVE WON THE

LAST 5.

GIANTS LOST AT PHILLY ON

NOVEMBER 21st.

THEY'VE WON 3 STRAIGHT.

D.J. WARE FROM JUST INSIDE THE

10.

GETS TO THE 30.

BROUGHT DOWN BY JOSELIO HANSON,

A RETURN OF 20 YARDS.

AND WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE

OFFENSE, LED OUT THERE BY

ELI MANNING, WHO IS ONE

INTERCEPTION AWAY FROM HIS

CAREER HIGH.

BUT HE'S FIFTH IN THE NFL WITH

24 TOUCHDOWN PASSES AND, TROY,

HERE THEY ARE, FIRST TIME SINCE

WEEK 7, THAT STARTING OFFENSIVE

LINE HAS BEEN BACK TOGETHER.

>> SHAUN O'HARA HAS MISSED A

NUMBER OF GAMES.

RICH SEUBERT, WHO IS STARTING

TODAY AT HIS NORMAL POSITION OF

LEFT GUARD, DID AN OUTSTANDING

JOB DURING THOSE WEEKS AT

CENTER.

THEY'RE MAKING THE SWITCH TO

TRY TO SHORE UP THE INSIDE

AGAINST THIS EAGLES DEFENSIVE

FRONT.

>> HERE IS BRANDON JACOBS.

TAP-DANCING AND A PENALTY FLAG

COMES IN.

JACOBS, A LOT OF MOVING AROUND,

ONLY A 1-YARD RUN.

>> HOLDING, NUMBER 86, OFFENSE.

10-YARD PENALTY, FIRST DOWN.

>> THEY GET BEAR PASCOE, WHO

HAS TAKEN OVER AT FULLBACK.

TOOK OVER WEEK 4 AGAINST THE

CHICAGO BEARS, AND HE'S BEEN

GETTING BETTER AND BETTER.

>> YEAH, HE HAS.

THAT'S HIM TAKING OVER FOR

MADISON HEDGECOCK THERE AT THE

FULLBACK POSITION.

AND ON THE FIRST PLAY OF THE

GAME, A NICE CALL THERE BY THE

OFFICIAL, SEEING THE HOLD ON

ERNIE SIMS.

AND I THINK IF YOU THINK BACK TO

THAT LAST TIME THESE TWO TEAMS

MET, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE

EAGLES WERE SO SUCCESSFUL

AGAINST THE RUN WAS BECAUSE OF

THE LINEBACKERS PLAYING

DOWNHILL, LIKE WE JUST SAW FROM

ERNIE SIMS.

>> PENALTY MAKES IT FIRST AND

20.

THEY STAY ON THE GROUND.

BRANDON JACOBS WITH AN EXTRA

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN IN THERE,

SHAUN ANDREWS, THE FORMER EAGLE,

A GAIN OF JUST 2.

IT WILL BE SECOND DOWN AND 18

AS JAMAR CHANEY MAKES THE

TACKLE.

AND, TROY, HE'S GOT TO BE THE

GUY YOU FOCUS ON AS WE LOOK AT

THIS DEFENSE.

THE ROOKIE TAKES OVER FOR

STEWART BRADLEY IN THE MIDDLE.

>> WHAT A GAME FOR HIM, HUH?

HE COMES IN, AND PLAYING IN A

GAME AGAINST THE DIVISION-RIVAL

NEW YORK GIANTS FOR THE NFC EAST

DIVISION LEAD.

AND A VERY ATHLETIC GUY.

BUT HE WILL BE MAKING THE CALLS,

AS STEWART BRADLEY DID.

AND THE GIANTS ARE HOPEFUL THAT

THEY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME

ROOKIE MISTAKES HERE THIS

AFTERNOON.

>> ON SECOND DOWN, FIRST THROW

FROM MANNING.

HE'S GOING FOR MANNINGHAM!

OVERTHROWN.

JUST A BIT OUT OF HIS REACH.

IT WAS THERE.

AND IT'S THIRD AND 18.

>> WELL, GIANTS COME OUT.

YOU GOT ASANTE SAMUEL.

REMEMBER, HE HAD TWO

INTERCEPTIONS IN THE GAME THE

LAST TIME THESE TWO TEAMS MET.

HE'S BEEN A THORN IN THEIR SIDE

FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND THEY WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF HIS AGGRESSIVE NATURE.

MARIO MANNINGHAM ON THE OUTSIDE,

JUST SIMPLY RAN RIGHT BY

ASANTE SAMUEL, HIM THINKING,

"OKAY, THEY'RE GOING TO RUN AN

INTERMEDIATE ROUTE."

THEY HAVE A CHANCE DOWN THE

FIELD, JUST CAN'T CONNECT.

>> SAMUEL MISSED THE LAST THREE

GAMES WITH A KNEE SPRAIN.

SO, HE'S BACK TODAY.

AND IT'S THIRD AND 18.

MANNING WITH TIME, DOWN THE

SIDELINE, OVERTHROWS MANNINGHAM

AS HE TRIES THE OTHER SIDE.

AND IT'S FOURTH DOWN.

A GOOD START TO THIS GAME FOR

THE EAGLES DEFENSIVELY, AND THAT

PENALTY HURT RIGHT OUT OF THE

GATE.

>> WELL, IT DID, AND I THINK

THAT FOR THE GIANTS, IF YOU LOOK

AT THE LAST THREE GAMES THAT

THEY HAVE PLAYED -- ALL WINS, I

UNDERSTAND -- BUT THEY HAVE NOT

BEEN GOOD.

IN FACT, THEY'VE BEEN VERY BAD

ON THIRD DOWNS.

AND THEY HAVE GOT TO BE BETTER

THAN THAT HERE TODAY.

A GOOD DEFENSIVE START HERE FOR

THE EAGLES.

>> THE ROOKIE, DODGE, HITS IT.

PRETTY GOOD PUNT.

THAT'S MACLIN ON THE FAR SIDE.

CALVIN WAS BACK THERE WITH HIM.

AND JEREMY MACLIN WILL TRY TO

USE HIS SPEED.

COULD NOT GET AROUND DeOSSIE.

THE LONG SNAPPER WAS THE FIRST

GUY DOWN THERE, AND AFTER A

49-YARD PUNT, NOTHING ON THE

RETURN.

ON FIRST DOWN, PLAY-ACTION.

VICK, WITH PRESSURE, GETS HIT.

THROWS TO DeSEAN JACKSON,

INCOMPLETE.

AND MICHAEL VICK, FIRST PLAY,

TAKES A HIT.

AND THAT'S BEEN A BIG PART OF

THIS SEASON FOR THE EAGLES, ALL

THESE HITS THAT VICK HAS TAKEN.

>> RIGHT OFF THE TOP HERE, BUT

HE'S ABLE TO COME THROUGH.

LOOKED LIKE DEON GRANT ON THE

BLITZ.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DID LAST

TIME.

AND MICHAEL VICK COMING OFF A

GAME WHERE HE TOOK A NUMBER OF

HITS LAST WEEK.

AND THAT'S THE ONE WAY THE

DEFENSES NOW FEEL THAT THEY CAN

TRY TO DISRUPT SOME OF VICK'S

TIMING.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> ON SECOND AND TEN, A BLITZ

COMING FROM ROLLE.

VICK TRYING TO GET OUT OF

TROUBLE.

HE DOES.

THROWS ACROSS HIS BODY.

INTERCEPTED BY WEBSTER.

COREY WEBSTER ON THE RETURN.

AVANT BRINGS HIM DOWN.

AND AN EARLY TAKEAWAY BY THE

GIANTS DEFENSE.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> THEY BROUGHT KENNY PHILLIPS

ON THE BLITZ.

THEY DO A GOOD JOB OF PICKING IT

UP.

THE EAGLES OFFENSIVE LINE DOES.

CHRIS CANTY, RIGHT THERE IN THE

MIDDLE -- HE'S THE ONE WHO'S

ABLE TO GET PRESSURE, FORCE VICK

OUT TO HIS LEFT.

VICK TRIES THROWING ACROSS HIS

BODY, AND COREY WEBSTER'S

CLUEING IN THE ENTIRE TIME.

YOU SEE DeSEAN JACKSON TRIES TO

SLOW-PLAY WEBSTER, NOT REAL

CERTAIN THAT THE BALL IS EVEN

COMING IN HIS DIRECTION, AND

WEBSTER IS ABLE TO UNDERCUT IT

FOR THE INTERCEPTION.

>> SO, WITH THAT EXCHANGE, AND

AFTER THE TAKEAWAY,

INTERCEPTION NUMBER 4 FOR

WEBSTER, HERE ARE THE GIANTS AT

THE EAGLES' 42.

QUICK THROW AND THE FIRST

COMPLETION.

IT'S MANNINGHAM.

MANNINGHAM WAS A LITTLE BIT IFFY

DURING THE COURSE OF THE WEEK.

HAD A HIP-FLEXOR INJURY LAST

WEEK IN DETROIT IN THAT GAME

AGAINST THE VIKINGS.

AND TOM COUGHLIN, THE HEAD COACH

OF THE GIANTS, TOLD US,

"MANNINGHAM'S GOT TO PLAY.

HE'S THE ONE GUY THAT CAN RUN

RIGHT THROUGH THEIR SECONDARY

FOR US ON THE OUTSIDE."

>> WELL, HE IS THE ONE GUY, BUT

THEY'RE ALSO HOPING THAT A

COUPLE OF OTHERS WILL HAVE SOME

SUCCESS DOING IT.

AND ONE OF THOSE BEING THEIR

TIGHT END, KEVIN BOSS, BECAUSE

WITHOUT STEVE SMITH, THEY LOSE

AN IMPORTANT GUY WORKING THE

MIDDLE OF THE FIELD.

>> SECOND AND 4 AND A

COMPLETION TO HAKEEM NICKS FOR A

GIANTS FIRST DOWN.

>> THE EAGLES THIS YEAR

OFFENSIVELY HAVE REALLY STARTED

GAMES OFF VERY WELL.

AND WHEN PAM OLIVER SAYS, "HEY,

THE EAGLES WANT TO GET OFF TO A

GOOD START," WELL, THEY'RE USED

TO GETTING OFF TO A GOOD START.

THAT'S A HECK OF A DEFENSIVE

START FOR THE GIANTS TO BE ABLE

TO COME OUT IN THE FIRST

POSSESSION, FORCE A TAKEAWAY,

SOMETHING THAT THEY HAVE BEEN

AWFULLY GOOD AT ALL YEAR LONG.

>> A BLITZ COMING FROM THE

EAGLES.

MANNING IS IN TROUBLE AND DOWN

ON MIDFIELD, AT THE 50.

THEY'RE GOING TO WRAP HIM UP.

IT WAS MOISE FOKOU COMING ON THE

BLITZ.

AND ALL OF THAT GOOD FIELD

POSITION TAKEN AWAY BY A

TERRIFIC PLAY BY THE SECOND-YEAR

PRO OUT OF MARYLAND.

>> YEAH, YOU'RE GONNA SEE HIM.

HE JUST WORKS RIGHT AROUND THE

EDGE.

AND THEY TURN HIM LOOSE.

SO, PLAY-ACTION AND HE GETS A

FREE RUN THEN AT ELI MANNING.

YOU CAN GET BET THAT THESE

LINEBACKERS THROUGHOUT THIS

GAME, A LOT OF THESE BLITZES

THAT WE SEE THERE FROM

MOISE FOKOU IS REALLY THEM

TRYING TO PLAY THE RUN.

IT'S A RUN BLITZ.

BUT IN THE ATTEMPT TO PLAY THE

RUN, THEY'RE RIGHT THERE THEN IN

POSITION OFF THE PLAY-ACTION

FOR THE HIT ON ELI MANNING.

>> WHAT A BIG DEFENSIVE PLAY

THAT WAS -- A LOSS OF 18.

AND ON SECOND DOWN, HERE IS

AHMAD BRADSHAW, TRYING TO PICK

HIS WAY THROUGH THAT EAGLES

DEFENSE.

AND HE PICKS UP 7.

>> YOU KNOW, FOUR WEEKS AGO, THE

GIANTS HAD SOME TURNOVERS IN

THAT GAME, AND THE DEFENSE FOR

THE GIANTS IS WHO KEPT THEM IN

IT.

IN FACT, THE GIANTS HAD THE LEAD

THERE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER

BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GIVE UP A

LOT OF POINTS WHEN THE EAGLES

WERE ABLE TO GET DOWN IN SCORING

POSITION.

RIGHT NOW, THE EAGLES WERE ASKED

TO DO THE SAME THING.

THEY GET THE TURNOVER.

THEY HAVE TO COME OUT ONTO THE

FIELD RIGHT AWAY AGAIN.

AND RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF THE

SACK, THEY KNOCKED THE GIANTS

OUT OF FIELD-GOAL RANGE.

>> THIRD DOWN AND 21.

ELI MANNING STEPS UP.

IT'S TIPPED IN THE AIR.

AND INCOMPLETE, LOOKING FOR

MANNINGHAM.

AND IT WAS KURT COLEMAN, THE

ROOKIE, WHO GOT HIS HAND UP AND

KNOCKED IT INTO THE AIR.

AND SO BECAUSE OF THAT PLAY BY

MOISE FOKOU, AND A LOSS OF 18 ON

HIS FIRST SACK OF THE YEAR, THE

GIANTS ARE PUSHED BACK OUT OF

FIELD-GOAL RANGE AND A PUNT

COMING FROM MATT DODGE.

MACLIN IS WAITING DEEP.

DeSEAN JACKSON TYPICALLY RETURNS

PUNTS.

HE SPRAINED HIS FOOT LAST WEEK

IN DALLAS.

EAGLES HAVE IT FOR THE SECOND

TIME.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

CHAD HALL, FIRST-YEAR PLAYER OUT

OF AIR FORCE, IN THE BACKFIELD.

QUICK SETUP AND THROW.

PASS COMPLETE, AND THAT'S MACLIN

WHO IS SPUN TO THE GROUND BY

TERRELL THOMAS.

HIGH SNAP, McCOY.

AND LeSEAN McCOY BREAKS FREE.

SHIFTS THE BALL TO THE OUTSIDE

ARM AND FORCED OUT AT THE 40 BY

COREY WEBSTER, A RUN OF 20.

PERRY FEWELL, THE

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, TOLD US

POINT BLANK AND WITHOUT

EXCEPTION, LeSEAN McCOY IS THE

EAGLES' BIGGEST WEAPON.

>> ANTREL ROLLE, HE HAS AN

OPPORTUNITY THERE TO MAKE A

PLAY, AND GENERALLY HE'S THE GUY

WHO WILL MAKE THAT TACKLE.

HE DOESN'T MISS MANY LIKE THAT,

BUT McCOY, WHO HAS BEEN ON A

REAL HOT STREAK HERE IN RECENT

WEEKS, HE'S ABLE TO AVOID THAT

TACKLE AND TURNED IT INTO A NICE

GAIN.

>> 20 YARDS FOR McCOY.

AND VICK RUNNING TO HIS LEFT.

FORCED OUT BY GOFF.

A GAIN OF 3.

HERE ARE THE BACKS AND RECEIVERS

FOR THE NUMBER-ONE OFFENSE IN

THE NFL.

AND THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER'S

WEST COAST OFFENSE.

THIS IS AN OFFENSE THAT HAS BIG

PLAYMAKERS ON THE OUTSIDE, AND

THEY ARE VERTICAL,

DOWN-THE-FIELD THREATS.

>> AND THEY'RE ALL YOUNG.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE HERE A

WHILE.

>> SECOND AND 7.

WILL VICK?

HE'S A FREE AGENT TO BE.

HAND-OFF TO McCOY.

STUMBLING AS HE GOT THE BALL, A

GAIN OF 3.

THIRD DOWN COMING UP.

AND NOW THIS DEFENSE, WHICH

COMES IN NUMBER TWO IN THE NFL.

THEY LEAD THE NFL IN TAKEAWAYS

NOW WITH 32.

THEY'RE TIED FOR THE MOST IN

SACKS WITH 39.

AND THE GROUP ON THE BACK END,

AND THEY PLAY A LOT OF 3-SAFETY

SETS.

THIRD DOWN AND 4.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

PASS BATTED DOWN.

FOURTH DOWN.

JASON PIERRE-PAUL, THE ROOKIE,

KNOCKED IT AWAY.

>> JASON PIERRE-PAUL, HE GOES

UP, AN ATHLETIC GUY.

AND JASON PETERS, THE LEFT

TACKLE, HE DOES AS GOOD A JOB AS

YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE LEFT

TACKLE.

HE BLOCKED HIM SO WELL THAT HE

KNOCKED JASON PIERRE-PAUL OFF

THE BALL.

BUT PIERRE-PAUL HAD THE

AWARENESS OF KNOWING HE COULDN'T

GET THERE, JUMPED UP, GOT HIS

HANDS UP, KNOCKS THE BALL DOWN

ON THIRD DOWN.

>> SAV ROCCA WILL PUNT IT.

WILL BLACKMON WAITS FOR IT.

BLACKMON HAS A LITTLE ROOM IN

FRONT OF HIM.

BUT HE MUFFS IT.

KICKED FORWARD.

CHASE BLACKBURN OF THE GIANTS ON

TOP OF IT TO SAVE AN EARLY

TURNOVER.

HERE'S BRADSHAW.

SWALLOWED UP IN THE BACKFIELD.

DOWN HE GOES.

AND FOKOU, WHO HAD THAT SACK THE

LAST TIME THE GIANTS HAD IT,

MADE THE PLAY.

A LOSS OF 4.

HERE'S THE RIVALRY SINCE 2008

OF THE LAST TEN DIVISION TITLES

SHARED BETWEEN THE GIANTS AND

THE EAGLES.

AND IT HAS BEEN A REAL GOOD

7-YEAR RUN NOW UNDER

TOM COUGHLIN, AN EVEN BETTER

12-YEAR RUN UNDER ANDY REID,

HEAD COACH OF THE EAGLES.

SECOND AND 14.

BRADSHAW AGAIN.

AND AHMAD BRADSHAW CANNOT GET

BACK TO THE ORIGINAL LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE.

JAMAR CHANEY MADE THE STOP.

>> IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE IT DID

THE LAST TIME THESE TWO TEAMS

PLAYED.

IN THAT GAME, THE

NEW YORK GIANTS WERE HELD TO A

SEASON-LOW 208 TOTAL YARDS AND

A SEASON-LOW 61 RUSHING YARDS.

NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT

ALL SEASON LONG.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT WAS THE

EAGLES WERE ABLE TO GET

PENETRATION INTO THE GIANTS

BACKFIELD, WHETHER IT WAS WITH

THEIR DEFENSIVE TACKLES, PUSHING

THE GUARDS BACKWARDS, OR THEY

WERE HITTING IT WITH THEIR

LINEBACKERS.

TODAY WE'VE SEEN MOISE FOKOU IN

THE BACKFIELD A COUPLE TIMES

ALREADY.

>> IT'S THIRD DOWN AND 11.

MANNING WITH TIME, STEPS UP AND

THROWS.

HITS FOR THE FIRST DOWN, NICKS,

AS HE ROLLS INTO EAGLES'

TERRITORY, A COMPLETION OF

22 YARDS.

>> WELL, THEY GOT KEVIN BOSS

GIVING A LITTLE HELP THERE TO

LEFT TACKLE DAVID DIEHL ON

TRENT COLE.

AND ELI MANNING, HE THREADED

THIS ONE PRETTY GOOD.

ASANTE SAMUEL LOOKED LIKE HE WAS

LURKING IN THERE AS TO WHETHER

HE WAS GONNA COME OFF OF THAT.

AND THE QUESTION IS, WAS THAT A

CATCH?

>> YEAH, THAT BALL MOVED WHEN

THE BODY OF NICKS WENT TO THE

GROUND.

BUT NO CHALLENGE FROM ANDY REID.

OVER THE MIDDLE, BRADSHAW, HIT

IMMEDIATELY.

AND THAT'S FOKOU AGAIN.

A GAIN OF 3.

>> I SAY THAT BECAUSE

ASANTE SAMUEL, AS WE TALKED

ABOUT, THE LAST GAME THAT HE

PLAYED WAS AGAINST THESE

NEW YORK GIANTS.

IN THAT GAME HE HAD

2 INTERCEPTIONS, AND HE'S A GUY

THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER HE WILL

TAKE CHANCES AND LOOK IN AND

CLUE ON THE QUARTERBACK.

AND ANYTIME YOU'RE THROWING TO

SOMEONE HE'S DEFENDING OR EVEN

TO HIS SIDE OF THE FIELD, YOU

BETTER KNOW WHERE HE IS,

ESPECIALLY WHEN HE'S IN ZONE

COVERAGE.

AND THAT TIME HE HAD A CHANCE.

HAD HE BEEN A LITTLE BIT

QUICKER TO COME OFF THAT THROW,

HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET

UNDERNEATH IT BEFORE BOSS MADE

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A CATCH.

>> ON SECOND AND 7, NICKS IS

LEFT ALONE, AND HE DROPS IT.

PATTERSON GOT THERE LATE.

AND HAKEEM NICKS WAS JUST

STANDING, WAITING AND COULDN'T

MAKE THE CATCH.

>> HE RUNS A POST CORNER ROUTE,

A NICE ROUTE.

HE'S ABLE TO GET

DIMITRI PATTERSON TURNED AROUND.

BUT YOU GOT TO FINISH THE PLAY

AND THEN MAKE THE CATCH.

IT WAS A PERFECTLY THROWN BALL.

JUST A LACK OF CONCENTRATION.

>> THE FIRST TWO THIRD DOWNS FOR

THE GIANTS, THIRD AND 18, THEN

THIRD AND 21, THEY CONVERTED ON

THE THIRD AND 11 ON WHAT WAS A

QUESTIONABLE CATCH BY

HAKEEM NICKS.

NOW IT'S THIRD AND 7.

D.J. WARE IN THE BACKFIELD.

MANNING.

THROWS TO THE SIDELINE, AND THE

PASS CAUGHT FOR A FIRST DOWN

BY MANNINGHAM.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

SOMEHOW KEPT HIS FEET DOWN AND

IN BOUNDS.

THAT'S THE CALL.

>> THAT'S A NICE JOB RIGHT

THERE.

LOOKED LIKE HE DID HAVE HIS TOES

DOWN.

RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE,

SHAUN O'HARA, HE GOT WORKED OVER

PRETTY GOOD AGAINST A 3-MAN

RUSH.

THE EAGLES STILL ABLE TO GET

PRESSURE ON MANNING.

>> HERE'S BRADSHAW.

GOOD WORK UPFIELD BY

JUQUA PARKER AND A LOSS OF 3.

>> BOY, WE'VE SEEN THAT JUST

ABOUT EVERY FIRST DOWN NOW HERE

IN THE EARLY GOING.

THE GIANTS HAVE LOST YARDAGE ON

FIRST DOWN.

IT MAKES IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT,

ESPECIALLY FOR AN OFFENSE THAT

HAS STRUGGLED COMING INTO THIS

GAME CONVERTING ON THIRD DOWN,

ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD

HERE IN THE EARLY GOING.

YOU CAN'T CONTINUALLY LOSE

YARDAGE THE WAY THE GIANTS HAVE

ON EARLY DOWNS.

>> SECOND DOWN AND 13.

HERE'S BRADSHAW AGAIN.

RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE OF THIS

EAGLES DEFENSE, INSIDE THE 35, A

GAIN OF 6.

THIS IS AN EAGLES DEFENSE THAT

HAS BLITZED LESS AND LESS THE

LAST FEW WEEKS.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

SEAN McDERMOTT SAID, "WELL,

THAT'S BECAUSE OF WHO WE WERE

PLAYING.

WE ARE STILL A BLITZING TEAM."

THEY HAD JUST 7 SACKS OVER THE

LAST 4 GAMES COMING INTO THIS

ONE.

>> YEAH, I THINK KEVIN GILBRIDE

SAID, YOU KNOW, "THEY REALLY

DIDN'T BLITZ US MUCH LAST TIME.

BUT DON'T FOOL YOURSELF.

THIS IS A BLITZING DEFENSE.

AND SO WE GO INTO EVERY GAME

EXPECTING PRESSURE."

>> THIRD DOWN AND 7.

HERE'S A BLITZ.

ELI MANNING BACKING UP AS HE

LETS IT GO.

FLAG DOWN.

MANNING, TOUCHDOWN TO

MANNINGHAM.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

AND NOW A FIGHT BREAKS OUT

AROUND THE 32-YARD LINE.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

McKENZIE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF

IT.

WE'LL CHECK THE FLAG.

MANNINGHAM GOT BEHIND THE

DEFENSE FOR A 35-YARD TOUCHDOWN,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL STAND.

LET'S GET THE CALL FROM

JOHN PARRY.

>> PRIOR TO THE PASS BEING

THROWN, ILLEGAL CONTACT,

DEFENSE, NUMBER 23.

THAT PENALTY WILL BE DECLINED.

THE RESULT OF THE PLAY,

TOUCHDOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> WELL, HERE IS THE ROUTE

AGAINST DIMITRI PATTERSON.

HE'S BEEN CALLED FOR A FEW OF

THESE IN RECENT WEEKS, AND A

GOOD CALL, GOOD THROW, GOOD

EXECUTION.

IN THE MIDDLE, SHAUN O'HARA,

HE'S STRUGGLING A LITTLE BIT

HERE ON THE EARLY GOING.

WE MENTIONED HE'S MISSED THE

LAST 6 GAMES.

HE'S BEEN BEAT NOW A COUPLE

TIMES INSIDE AND HAS GIVEN UP

SOME HITS, AND HE'S GIVEN UP

SOME PRESSURE ON ELI MANNING.

>> IT'S ONLY O'HARA'S FIFTH GAME

OF THE YEAR.

HE'S HAD FOOT PROBLEMS.

A MIDFOOT SPRAIN, AND HE'S GOT

HIS HANDS FULL.

THE GIANTS LEAD IT, 7-0.

AND TYNES KICKS IT AWAY WITH

CALVIN ON THE RETURN.

AND NOW HE FLIPS TO

RILEY COOPER.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

McCOY GETS IT.

AND GOES RIGHT DOWN.

KENNY PHILLIPS, FIRST GUY THERE.

GOFF WAS IN ON THE TACKLE.

>> GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT

WHY THAT FIGHT BROKE OUT.

RIGHT GUARD CHRIS SNEE, AND HE'S

ENGAGED THERE WITH...

YOU SAY IT, JOE.

>> DANIEL TE'O-NESHEIM.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

BUT, ANYWAY, SNEE WENT BACK

AFTER HIM AT THE END OF THAT

PLAY, AND THAT'S WHEN THE FIGHT

ENSUED.

>> HARRISON NOW IN AT TAILBACK

ON SECOND AND 9.

GOOD PROTECTION FOR VICK.

AND OVER THE MIDDLE FINDS HIS

MAN, AND THAT'S HARRISON.

A GAIN OF 6.

>> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE

GIANTS ARE DOING IS THEY'RE

MATCHING UP ON THE OUTSIDE.

COREY WEBSTER WILL BE GOING --

AS THERE IS ANOTHER SCUFFLE OUT

HERE -- BUT COREY WEBSTER WILL

BE GOING WITH DeSEAN JACKSON

THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.

AND ON THE FLIP SIDE,

TERRELL THOMAS, HE'LL BE MATCHED

UP WITH JEREMY MACLIN.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THEY ALSO

DID IN THE FIRST MATCHUP.

NOW, WHAT WE HAVE SEEN OF THE

GIANTS DEFENSIVELY HERE IN THIS

GAME IS THEY'RE PLAYING FIVE

DEFENSIVE BACKS, SIX DEFENSIVE

BACKS, THEY'RE BRINGING A LOT OF

PRESSURE, AND THEY'RE HANGING

THESE CORNERS OUT ONE-ON-ONE

WITHOUT MUCH HELP, ALTHOUGH IT

LOOKS LIKE -- NO, GOING BACK TO

ONE-ON-ONE HERE, AS WELL.

>> ON THIRD AND 3.

PASS IS JUGGLED AND DROPPED BY

AVANT.

AARON ROSS ALL OVER HIM.

WILL BLACKMON WAITING FOR THE

PUNT FROM ROCCA.

AND THIS ONE IS BLOWN

OUT OF BOUNDS.

7-0, GIANTS.

STARTING AT THEIR 30 AND THE

GIANTS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO RUN

THE BALL AT ALL HERE WITH 1:50

LEFT IN THE OPENING QUARTER.

HERE IS JACOBS.

BEST OF THE DAY, FIRST DOWN AS

BRANDON JACOBS CARRIES FOR 11.

>> JUST AN OFF-TACKLE RUN BY

BRANDON JACOBS.

THEY COME UP WITH THE PRESSURE

RIGHT OVER THE CENTER.

BUT IT'S A SLANT BY THE

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, AND THEY

SLANTED THEMSELVES RIGHT OUT OF

THE HOLE.

BRANDON JACOBS, WHO HAS BEEN

RUNNING THE FOOTBALL AWFULLY

WELL SINCE HE TOOK OVER AGAIN AS

THE STARTER.

BUT LAST WEEK, STILL JUST

14 CARRIES.

HE'S NOT GETTING OVERWORKED AND

HASN'T THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.

>> OUT OF THE SHOTGUN, MANNING

THROWS, BOSS.

INCOMPLETE.

UP TO GRAB IT, MISSED IT.

>> THAT WAS A GOOD READ BY

ELI MANNING AND HAD A SHOT RIGHT

UP THE SEAM.

JAMAR CHANEY, HE HAD TO NAVIGATE

THE THROW OVER HIS HEAD.

LOOKS LIKE HE PUT IT IN A PLACE

WHERE KEVIN BOSS HAD A CHANCE TO

MAKE THAT CATCH.

WE'LL SEE HERE.

HE HAD TO GO UP FOR IT BUT ONE

THAT HE NORMALLY MAKES.

WE TALKED ABOUT HIM A LITTLE BIT

LAST WEEK, KEVIN BOSS, THAT IS,

AND HE HAS AN UNCANNY ABILITY TO

MAKE A PLAY WHEN IT NEEDS TO BE

MADE.

AND THOSE TYPES OF CATCHES ARE

THE ONES HE USUALLY MAKES.

>> TO THE FAR SIDELINE, IT'S

NICKS AND A GOOD PLAY OUT THERE

IN COVERAGE.

DIMITRI PATTERSON, SOLID TACKLE,

A GAIN OF 2.

AND IT'S THIRD AND 8 COMING UP.

>> WELL, NOW THEY'RE FACED WITH

ANOTHER THIRD DOWN.

AND TALKED ABOUT HOW THEY HAD TO

BE BETTER THAN THEY HAVE BEEN

ON THIS DOWN TO WIN THIS GAME.

ONE, IT KEEPS THE BALL IN THEIR

HANDS AND THE ABILITY TO KEEP

A DRIVE ALIVE AND GET POINTS.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IT KEEPS

THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES OFFENSE

AND MICHAEL VICK OVER ON THE

SIDELINES.

ELI MANNING CAME INTO THIS GAME

AS ONE OF THE WORST-RATED

PASSERS ON THIRD DOWN.

BUT HE'S BEEN GOOD HERE IN THE

EARLY GOING.

>> HE'S CONVERTED THREE

STRAIGHT.

ON THIRD AND 8, JUST A 4-MAN

RUSH, AND IT'S BATTED INTO THE

AIR.

MIKELL WITH THE INTERCEPTION.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

DARRYL TAPP GOT HIS HAND ON IT,

AND QUINTIN MIKELL MADE THE

INTERCEPTION AND NOW EACH

QUARTERBACK'S THROWN ONE.

>> IT'S A GREAT JOB BY

DARRYL TAPP.

WE SAW JASON PIERRE-PAUL DO IT A

LITTLE BIT EARLIER FOR THE

GIANTS.

HE BASICALLY DID THE SAME THING.

BUT QUINTIN MIKELL, JUST A GREAT

REACTION ON HIS PART AND BEING

ABLE TO MAKE A NICE PLAY ON

THAT.

THAT GOES DOWN AS AN

INTERCEPTION ON ELI MANNING.

BUT YOU CAN'T FAULT THE

QUARTERBACK FOR THAT ONE.

>> FOR MIKELL, THAT'S HIS THIRD

INTERCEPTION.

AND, AS YOU SAID, A GREAT

ATHLETIC PLAY JUST TO COME DOWN

WITH IT CLEANLY.

BUT IT WAS TAPP WHO MADE THE

PLAY.

ELI MANNING NOW HAS THROWN THE

MOST INTERCEPTIONS ACROSS THE

NFL.

IT'S ANOTHER GIVEAWAY FOR THIS

GIANTS OFFENSE AND THAT TIES A

CAREER HIGH, WHICH WAS SET IN

'07, A GREAT YEAR FOR GIANTS.

THEY WON IT ALL,

20 INTERCEPTIONS THROWN BY

MANNING.

14 SECONDS LEFT IN THE FIRST

QUARTER.

VICK TO HIS LEFT.

WILL PULL IT DOWN AND RUN.

AND HE IS SHOVED OUT OF BOUNDS,

AND A FLAG WILL BE THROWN.

IT'S BEEN AN ISSUE HERE

CERTAINLY IN RECENT WEEKS.

AND ANDY REID HAS HAD TO WORK

OFFICIATING CREWS LIKE A

BASKETBALL COACH LOOKING FOR A

FOUL WITH ALL THESE HITS.

>> PERSONAL FOUL, LATE HIT, OUT

OF BOUNDS, NUMBER 54, DEFENSE.

15-YARD PENALTY.

THAT'S AN AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.

>> AND THAT'S A GOOD CALL.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE MICHAEL VICK

IS OUT OF BOUNDS WHEN

JONATHAN GOFF COMES OUT AND THEN

SHOVES HIM AGAIN.

I WAS GOING TO SAY YOU CALLED

IT, JOE.

ANDY REID HAS TALKED ABOUT IT

ALL WEEK LONG -- ACTUALLY FOR

THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS IS HOW

MICHAEL VICK IS NOT AFFORDED THE

SAME QUARTERBACK PROTECTION AS

OTHER QUARTERBACKS IN THE LEAGUE

BECAUSE OF HIS STYLE OF PLAY.

THAT PLAY THERE, ANY QUARTERBACK

WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THAT CALL,

AND IT'S ONE ANDY REID HAS BEEN

WANTING FOR A LONG TIME.

>> VICK, OVER THE MIDDLE, HITS

McCOY.

INSIDE THE 15 TO THE 14, A GAIN

OF 5 AND BACK TO THAT PENALTY

AND EVENTUALLY THE HIT BY GOFF

ON MICHAEL VICK AS JACKSON WAS

ONE OF THE INTENDED TARGETS.

>> WELL, RIGHT OFF THE TURNOVER,

THE EAGLES DO WHAT THEY LIKE TO

DO AND TRY TO TAKE A SHOT DOWN

THE FIELD.

AND THEY WERE TRYING TO GET THE

BALL DOWN THE FIELD TO

DeSEAN JACKSON.

I THOUGHT THE GIANTS DEFENSIVELY

REALLY DID A NICE JOB IN

COVERAGE.

CORNELLY RIGHT THERE TO GET THE

SHOT OF VICK AS HE CAME OFF THE

FIELD ON THAT PERSONAL FOUL.

>> VICK LED WITH HIS HELMET ON

CORNELLY, BUT NO FLAG.

SECOND DOWN.

McCOY.

GOOD PLAY, ANTREL ROLLE, GAIN OF

1.

>> I LIKE WHAT THE GIANTS HAVE

DONE HERE DEFENSIVELY.

AND ANTREL ROLLE, THIS GUY IS

JUST A COMPLETE PLAYER.

HE REALLY IS.

HE'S A GOOD COVER GUY.

HE'S MADE THE TRANSITION TO

SAFETY.

HE'S BEEN EXCELLENT THERE.

BUT HE IS -- HE'S AS GOOD A

TACKLER AS MOST LINEBACKERS.

AND PERRY FEWELL HAS GOT HIS

GROUP READY TO GO.

>> THIRD AND 4.

BLITZ FROM THE GIANTS.

VICK IN TROUBLE.

DOWN HE GOES.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

ROCKY BERNARD FROM THE MIDDLE,

ANTREL ROLLE COMING UP ON A

BLITZ.

PHILLIPS IN THERE, AS WELL.

>> YEAH, HE PUTS A MOVE ON

JASON PETERS, THE LEFT TACKLE.

STARTS LIKE HE'S GONNA

SPEED-RUSH HIM OVER THE TOP AND

THEN COMES UNDERNEATH HIM

BECAUSE HE SAW WHERE

MICHAEL VICK WAS IN THE POCKET.

YOU SEE HE STARTS UP, COMES

UNDERNEATH.

THAT'S JUST GREAT PRESSURE

INSIDE.

AND THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THAT

WITH ANTREL ROLLE, DEON GRANT.

THEY'VE BEEN BRINGING SECONDARY

PLAYERS THROUGHOUT THE FIRST

HALF.

>> 34-YARD TRY BY AKERS

IS GOOD.

D.J. WARE, WHO IS A BACKUP

TAILBACK, HAS KIND OF GIVEN THE

GIANTS A LITTLE LIFT RETURNING

KICKS.

AND HE'LL GET A CHANCE TO DO IT

HERE.

FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE 5.

ACROSS THE 25, KNOCKED DOWN AT

THE 27.

HERE'S BRADSHAW.

AHMAD BRADSHAW TRIPPED UP AFTER

A GAIN OF 5.

BRADSHAW.

FIRST DOWN.

OUT TO THE 40, WRAPPED UP BY

CHANEY.

>> THEY DO A GOOD JOB ON THE

INSIDE.

SHAUN O'HARA, WHO IS GETTING HIS

SEA LEGS BACK UNDERNEATH HIM,

YOU'RE GONNA SEE HIM AT CENTER,

AND THEY WORK THE DOUBLE TEAM

HERE WITH HIS GUARD.

BUT THEN HE'S ABLE TO GET UP TO

THE SECOND LEVEL.

HE GETS ON THE ROOKIE

JAMAR CHANEY.

THAT'S A NICE GAIN.

JAMAR CHANEY ULTIMATELY COMES

OFF THAT BLOCK AND MAKES THE

TACKLE, BUT NOT UNTIL THEY PICK

UP THE FIRST DOWN.

>> GETTING HIS SEA LEGS

UNDERNEATH HIM.

>> YOU LIKE THAT?

>> [ LAUGHS ]

IF YOU'RE SIX GAMES, YOU GOT TO

GET YOUR SEA LEGS BACK.

>> DON'T FORGET THAT.

YOU GOT TO GET MORE THAN THAT.

>> ON FIRST DOWN, BRADSHAW

AGAIN.

OUT NEAR MIDFIELD, A RUN OF

9 YARDS.

>> THEY'RE GETTING THAT RUNNING

GAME GOING RIGHT NOW, INSIDE.

SHAUN O'HARA AND THEN THE RIGHT

GUARD CHRIS SNEE SEALS IT OFF.

AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE

PENETRATION THAT THEY HAD GOTTEN

BOTH IN THE FIRST QUARTER AND

THEN GOING BACK TO THE LAST TIME

THESE TWO TEAMS MET.

>> THAT'S THREE STRAIGHT FROM

BRADSHAW.

NOW BRANDON JACOBS BACK IN THE

GAME.

>> WHAT A LUXURY.

>> PASS CAUGHT BY BECKUM FOR A

FIRST DOWN.

TRAVIS BECKUM MAKES HIS 13th

CATCH OF THE YEAR.

YOU KNOW, YOU TALK ABOUT THIS

RUN GAME AND HOW THE EAGLES

SHUT THEM DOWN ON NOVEMBER 21st

IN PHILADELPHIA.

TOTAL OF 61 RUSH YARDS AND THE

TWO BACKS WERE JUST COMPLETELY

SHUT DOWN, UNDER 40 COMBINED

YARDS.

BUT SINCE THEN, JACOBS HAS TAKEN

OVER AS THE STARTER.

AND THE RUNNING GAME IS

AVERAGING OVER 180 YARDS A GAME

DURING THIS 3-GAME WIN STREAK.

HERE IS JACOBS.

TO THE 45.

GAIN OF 1.

>> HOW ABOUT WHAT

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR

KEVIN GILBRIDE'S HAD TO DEAL

WITH THROUGHOUT THIS SEASON AND

NOW THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THAT

HE'S FACED THE EAGLES, SOMEWHAT

SHORT-HANDED.

STEVE SMITH DIDN'T PLAY THE LAST

TIME THESE TWO TEAMS MET.

OF COURSE HE'S NOT PLAYING AGAIN

HERE TODAY.

AND THEN WITH THE SHUFFLING

ALONG THE OFFENSIVE LINE, THE

INJURIES THAT WE'RE AWARE OF AT

WIDE RECEIVER, IT'S HARD.

IT'S HARD EVERY WEEK, FIRST

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS

GOING TO ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO

PLAY IN THE GAME, AND THEN

TRYING TO FORMULATE A GAME PLAN

THAT CAN BE SUCCESSFUL, AND HE'S

BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT.

>> BLITZ COMING FROM THE

EAGLES.

JACOBS CAN'T AVOID IT.

CHANEY MAKES THE PLAY AND A LOSS

OF 3.

>> BOTH THESE DEFENSES, THOUGH,

ARE DOING A GOOD JOB,

ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE

TURNOVER.

COMING INTO THE GAME,

TOM COUGHLIN TOLD US, JOE, HE

FELT VERY CONFIDENT ABOUT THE

GIANTS DEFENSIVELY MATCHING UP

AGAINST THE EAGLES OFFENSE.

LAST TIME THEY DID A NICE JOB

NOT GIVING UP A LOT OF POINTS.

THEY'RE ABLE TO HOLD

PHILADELPHIA AFTER THE TURNOVER

TO JUST A FIELD GOAL.

THE EAGLES DEFENSE, ON THE OTHER

HAND, WHEN THEY HAD A TURNOVER

OFFENSIVELY, THEY HOLD THE

GIANTS TO NO POINTS.

>> AND IT'S THIRD AND 12.

MANNING STEPS UP, SLIDES TO HIS

RIGHT.

FINDS A MAN, NICKS, FIRST DOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

COLEMAN ON THE STOP, BUT A

COMPLETION OF 15 YARDS.

>> GIANTS ARE KIND OF WORKING

THAT CORNER THERE.

GOT NICKS ON THE INSIDE.

HE GOES TO THE OUTSIDE, AND

ELI MANNING JUST PUTS IT RIGHT

ON HIM.

HE'S GOT A NICE CUSHION.

SEE KURT COLEMAN.

HE'S THE SAFETY WHO'S IN

COVERAGE.

AND THE GIANTS RUN A NICE

COMBINATION THERE FOR THE FIRST

DOWN.

>> PLAY-ACTION FOR MANNING.

THAT WORKS WHEN YOU HAVE A GOOD

RUN GAME, AND THE PASS COMPLETE.

MANNINGHAM, HE ALREADY HAS ONE

AND NOW ANOTHER.

TOUCHDOWN, GIANTS.

>> IT'S A DEEP CURL ROUTE BY

MARIO MANNINGHAM.

DIMITRI PATTERSON, HE'S PLAYING

SOFT.

PRETTY SIMPLE ROUTE.

YOU JUST GOT TO MAKE THAT

TACKLE.

NOTHING DIFFICULT ABOUT IT.

EASY PITCH AND CATCH THERE BY

ELI MANNING, MARIO MANNINGHAM.

BUT DIMITRI PATTERSON, WHO

ALREADY GOT BEAT FOR THE FIRST

TOUCHDOWN, FAILS TO MAKE THE

TACKLE ON THIS ONE.

>> LINE-DRIVE KICK IS GOOD.

MANNING, 10-FOR-16, 135 YARDS,

2 TOUCHDOWNS, 1 INTERCEPTION.

JORRICK CALVIN ON THE RETURN.

OUT ACROSS THE 25.

THAT'S IT.

ON THE GROUND, McCOY, TO THE 30.

THAT'S IT.

CANTY ON THE STOP.

SECOND AND 6.

BLITZ COMING, PASS IS CAUGHT.

THAT'S MACLIN, AND HE IS WRAPPED

UP A YARD SHY OF A FIRST DOWN.

THOMAS WITH THE COVERAGE.

>> TELL YOU, THE GIANTS REALLY

HAVEN'T DISGUISED WHAT IT IS

THAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO IN THIS

GAME.

THEY CONTINUE TO BRING PRESSURE

OFF THE EDGES.

AND ANTREL ROLLE, AGAIN ON THAT

PLAY, AND SO THEY'RE REALLY

LEAVING THESE CORNERS.

TERRELL THOMAS, COREY WEBSTER

OUT ON SOME AWFULLY TALENTED

RECEIVERS, ONE-ON-ONE.

YOU JUST WONDER, OKAY, IS

MICHAEL VICK EVENTUALLY GOING TO

GET ENOUGH TIME IN THE POCKET TO

TRY TO TAKE A SHOT DOWN THE

FIELD?

SO FAR THE GIANTS HAVE REALLY

DONE A NICE JOB MATCHING UP AND

NOT GIVING THEM ANYTHING.

>> DeSEAN JACKSON IN THE

BACKFIELD.

THEY FAKE THE HAND-OFF, AND

MICHAEL VICK WILL WORK THE

SIDELINE FOR A FIRST DOWN.

GETS SHOVED BY TUCK, NO FLAG.

A RUN OF 9 YARDS AND FIRST DOWN

AND THE FIRST THIRD-DOWN

CONVERSION BY THE EAGLES IN THIS

GAME.

>> THAT WAS ANOTHER CLOSE ONE BY

JUSTIN TUCK.

AND JUST TO BE CERTAIN, HE WENT

OVER AND SHOWED NICK COLE THERE,

NUMBER 59, THAT -- WHERE THE

WHITE LINE WAS, RIGHT AT THE END

OF THIS PLAY.

[ LAUGHS ]

>> SO, NICK COLE WAS SAYING

SOMETHING TO HIM ON HIS WAY BACK

ONTO THE FIELD.

NO FLAG.

HARRISON IN THE GAME, AND HE

GETS IT.

THE GUY THE EAGLES PICKED UP

IN-SEASON IN A TRADE FROM THE

BROWNS PICKS UP 3.

>> HERE YOU SEE AT THE END OF

THAT, JUSTIN TUCK, HE KNOWS.

THEY'RE GOING TO CERTAINLY BE AS

AGGRESSIVE AS THEY CAN WHEN IT

COMES TO MICHAEL VICK AND GET

THE HITS.

ANDY REID, UNLIKE LAST WEEK, WAS

NOT RUNNING DOWN THE SIDELINE

WANTING TO GET THE CALL ON THAT

ONE.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> SECOND AND 7.

VICK FAKED IT TO THE LEFT SIDE,

COMES TO THE NEAR SIDE, AND

McCOY SWALLOWED UP.

GOFF WAS OUT THERE FIRST.

TUCK MAKES THE STOP.

A LOSS OF 1.

>> GREAT TEAM DEFENSE RIGHT

THERE.

FIRST, THEY WERE ABLE TO GET A

LITTLE BIT OF PRESSURE INSIDE.

BUT THEN THEY RALLY TO THE

FOOTBALL VERY WELL.

HAD THREE GUYS THERE TO MAKE A

TACKLE.

AND A THIRD DOWN HERE WHERE THE

EAGLES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR HAVE

BEEN VERY GOOD.

THE GIANTS DOING A GOOD JOB

GETTING OFF THE FIELD HERE IN

THIS FIRST HALF.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> THIRD DOWN AND 8, AND

THEY'RE ALL COMING AFTER VICK.

DOWN HE GOES.

TUCK WITH A SACK.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

AND VICK GETS UP LIMPING OFF THE

FIELD.

>> REALLY WASN'T BAD PROTECTION.

BUT YOU'RE GONNA SEE

MICHAEL VICK.

HE STARTS TO MOVE THAT WAY, AND

HE KIND OF RUNS HIMSELF INTO IT.

HAD MICHAEL VICK STEPPED UP IN

THE POCKET, HE HAD A NICE POCKET

THERE TO DELIVER THE FOOTBALL.

BUT HE RAN HIMSELF RIGHT INTO

JUSTIN TUCK.

>> 9 1/2 ON THE YEAR FOR TUCK.

GOOD PUNT BY ROCCA.

BLACKMON FROM THE 15.

GOOD RETURN.

OUT TO THE 38.

MANNING TO THE NEAR SIDE.

DROPPED BY NICKS.

HIT BY PATTERSON.

>> I'M GONNA GO BACK AND TAKE A

LOOK AT WHAT THE GIANTS ARE

DOING DEFENSIVELY.

HERE'S COREY WEBSTER.

THEY'RE GETTING THEIR HANDS ON

THESE RECEIVERS.

THEY'RE DOING A GOOD JOB OF

DISRUPTING THE TIMING A LITTLE

BIT.

HERE IS TERRELL THOMAS ON

JEREMY MACLIN.

AND THE GIANTS ALSO THIS TIME

THEY LINE JUSTIN TUCK UP ON THE

SAME SIDE AS OSI UMENYIORA.

THEY HAVE DONE THAT BEFORE.

BUT YOU SEE, THEY'RE ABLE TO GET

THE PRESSURE THEN ON

MICHAEL VICK.

AND A LOT OF TIMES YOU'D SAY,

"WELL, THE REASON THEY'RE NOT

THROWING THE BALL MORE

EFFECTIVELY IS BECAUSE OF THE

PASS RUSH."

I THINK HERE THIS AFTERNOON IT'S

HAD MORE TO DO WITH THE JOB OF

THESE CORNERS IN COVERAGE.

>> HERE IS JACOBS OVER THE RIGHT

SIDE ON SECOND AND 10.

PICKS UP 2.

ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE

GIANTS WANT TO OVERLOAD THAT

SIDE WITH ALL THEIR TALENT, OR

AT LEAST THE BETTER PASS RUSHERS

WITH TUCK AND UMENYIORA, IS THAT

WINSTON JUSTICE IS INACTIVE FOR

THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEEK AT

RIGHT TACKLE.

SO, KING DUNLAP IS IN THERE, AND

THEY ARE TESTING THE RIGHT SIDE

OF THE OFFENSIVE LINE FOR

PHILLY.

MEANWHILE, IT IS THIRD DOWN AND

8 HERE FOR THE GIANTS.

EAGLES NEED TO MAKE A STOP.

MANNING HAS A MAN, HAGAN.

FIRST DOWN AND MORE.

DEREK HAGAN HAS BEEN WORKED MORE

AND MORE INTO THE OFFENSE.

16 YARDS AND ANOTHER THIRD-DOWN

CONVERSION FOR THIS GIANTS

OFFENSE.

>> WELL, WE TALKED ABOUT THE

EAGLES ARE NOT BLITZING AS MUCH

AS WHAT THEY HAVE AT OTHER

TIMES.

BUT THEY DIALED UP THE BLITZ

THEN.

THE GIANTS, THEY JUST PICKED IT

UP NICELY.

ELI MANNING WITH A CLEAN POCKET.

DEREK HAGAN, OUT OF FOOTBALL NOT

TOO LONG AGO.

IN FACT, I VISITED WITH HIM

BEFORE THE GAME ON THE FIELD.

AND HE WAS PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT

EVENTUALLY HE'D GET A SHOT.

HE SAID HE WORKED OUT.

WAS OUT THERE IN CALIFORNIA,

STILL CONTINUING TO KEEP HIMSELF

IN SHAPE, HOPING THAT SOMEBODY

WOULD NEED A WIDE RECEIVER.

THE GIANTS CALLED, AND HERE HE

IS.

>> HERE'S JACOBS TO THE 40.

WE KEEP REFERENCING THE TOP

THIRD-DOWN RECEIVER AND

STATISTICALLY THE TOP THIRD-DOWN

RECEIVER LAST YEAR WHEN HE WENT

TO THE PRO BOWL, STEVE SMITH,

WHO WAS SUCH A SECURITY BLANKET

ON THIRD DOWNS FOR ELI MANNING.

NOW, SMITH IS OUT FOR THE REST

OF THE YEAR WITH A TORN

ARTICULAR CARTILAGE IN HIS LEFT

KNEE.

AND THAT'S A BIG PIECE OF THIS

OFFENSIVE PUZZLE NOT THERE FOR

ELI MANNING.

>> WELL, WE SAID COMING IN,

ELI MANNING WAS GOING TO HAVE TO

PLAY WELL IN THIS GAME.

AND BOY, HAS HE.

HE IS THROWING THE BALL AND

LOOKING VERY SHARP HERE IN THE

FIRST HALF.

>> SECOND DOWN AND 6.

DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD AND

NEARLY PICKED OFF.

NICKS, THE INTENDED RECEIVER.

AND DIMITRI PATTERSON WAS THERE

FOR WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN ANOTHER

PICK.

>> THAT'S THE ONE THROW THAT ELI

SEEMS TO HAVE EACH WEEK, AND

HE'S THROWING, YOU KNOW, OFF HIS

BACK FOOT.

AND WHEN YOU TRY TO THROW A DEEP

POST, FALLING BACKWARDS, THAT'S

HARD TO DO.

AND DIMITRI PATTERSON, WHO HAS

BEEN TORCHED ALREADY A COUPLE OF

TIMES FOR A TOUCHDOWN, HE CAN'T

CATCH THE BALL FOR AN

INTERCEPTION.

BUT THAT'S ONE THAT HE HAS TO

MAKE.

BUT IT'S ONE THAT ELI MANNING

SHOULD HAVE NEVER EVEN

ATTEMPTED.

>> THIRD AND 6.

BLITZ COMING.

BRADSHAW UNDERNEATH, ROOM TO

RUN.

GOOD PLAY CALL BY GILBRIDE.

FIRST DOWN AT THE 29.

FIRST DOWN.

1:56 LEFT.

EACH TEAM WITH THREE TIME-OUTS

REMAINING AS BRADSHAW TAKES IT

TO THE 25.

>> GIANTS RIGHT HERE, I MEAN,

THEY GOT A CHANCE TO PUT THE

NAIL IN THE COFFIN HERE IN THE

FIRST HALF, GO UP 21-3.

>> HERE'S HAGAN AGAIN WITH A

FIRST DOWN INSIDE THE 15.

AND ELI MANNING IS STARTING TO

PICK APART THIS EAGLES

SECONDARY.

THAT'S GOOD FOR 11.

AND A TIME-OUT IS TAKEN BY

TOM COUGHLIN AND THE GIANTS.

>> THEY'VE JUST DONE A NICE JOB

OF CONVERTING ON THIRD DOWN,

KEEPING DRIVES ALIVE AND THEN,

YOU KNOW, ELI WITH THE EXCEPTION

OF THE DEEP POST THAT HE TRIED

TO THROW, HE'S BEEN VERY SHARP

IN HIS DECISION-MAKING.

AND AHMAD BRADSHAW COMES UP AND

THAT'S THE ONE AREA WHERE

AHMAD -- HE REALLY NEEDED TO

IMPROVE, AND HE HAS IS IN HIS

PASS PROTECTION.

OF COURSE, AN EXCELLENT RUNNER,

AND THE FUMBLES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

A CONCERN.

HE COULD GET BETTER IN THAT

AREA, AS WELL.

BUT IT'S AN AREA -- WHEN THEY

LOST DERRICK WARD -- THE GIANTS,

THAT IS -- A COUPLE YEARS AGO,

THEY NEVER ADDRESSED THAT

THIRD-DOWN BACK.

BUT AHMAD BRADSHAW HAS

CONTINUALLY IMPROVED AS A PASS

PROTECTOR, WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT

FOR THAT GUY.

>> 1:20 LEFT.

GIANTS ALREADY UP 11.

EMPTY BACKFIELD.

MANNING OVER THE MIDDLE.

HITS MANNINGHAM.

AND A GAIN OF 4.

AND NOW THEY START TO SCUFFLE

AGAIN.

MEANWHILE, THERE IS AN INJURED

PLAYER DOWN ON THE FIELD.

MANNINGHAM IS SLOW TO GET UP.

NOW NATE ALLEN, THE ROOKIE

STARTER AT FREE SAFETY, IS

CARTED OFF WITH SOME INJURY TO

HIS RIGHT KNEE.

>> AND NATE ALLEN HAS REALLY HAD

A NICE ROOKIE SEASON, AND THEY

WERE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT HIM

AT THE START OF THE SEASON.

HE PLAYED SO AGGRESSIVELY, WAS

SO INTENSE.

THEY WERE AFRAID HE WAS GONNA

BURN OUT.

IT'S A LONG SEASON FOR ANYBODY,

BUT ESPECIALLY FOR A ROOKIE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT INJURY IS

EXACTLY, IN A GREAT DEAL OF

PAIN, BUT HE'S BEEN A SOLID

PLAYER FOR THIS TEAM ALL YEAR.

>> SECOND AND 6.

MANNING THROWS, HAS MANNINGHAM,

AND ON SECOND AND 6, A GAIN OF

3.

ASANTE SAMUEL ON THE STOP.

PHILADELPHIA HAD TO USE A

TIME-OUT WITH NATE ALLEN DOWN ON

THE GROUND.

SO, EACH SIDE HAS TWO REMAINING.

IT IS THIRD AND 3.

>> YOU GOT TO BE IMPRESSED WITH

WHAT MARIO MANNINGHAM HAS DONE

HERE IN THE FIRST HALF, KNOWING

THE TEAM NEEDED A BIG GAME FROM

HIM.

HE HAS PROVIDED THAT.

>> GIANTS HAVE CONVERTED SIX OF

THEIR LAST SEVEN THIRD DOWNS.

BLITZ.

MANNING OFF HIS BACK FOOT.

INCOMPLETE FOR BOSS.

WELL COVERED BY QUINTIN MIKELL,

WHO HAS AN INTERCEPTION IN THIS

HALF.

AND SO A HOLD THERE ON THIRD AND

3 DEFENSIVELY FOR PHILADELPHIA.

THEY NEEDED IT.

>> THEY GOT THE FREE RUSHER,

AND ELI, I MEAN, THAT'S A GOOD

PLAY BY QUINTIN MIKELL.

BUT ELI MANNING PUT IT RIGHT

WHERE HE HAD TO PUT IT IN ORDER

TO GIVE HIS TIGHT END AN

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A PLAY.

THAT'S A GOOD STOP THERE BY

PHILADELPHIA.

>> THIS TO MAKE IT A 14-POINT

GAME.

25-YARD TRY BY TYNES, WHO HAS

NOW MADE 15 STRAIGHT.

AND IT'S A 14-POINT GAME.

STILL TIME LEFT, 48 SECONDS AND

2 TIME-OUTS FOR THE EAGLES,

TRAILING BY 14.

JORRICK CALVIN WAITS FOR THE

KICK FROM LAWRENCE TYNES.

CHANCE FOR A RETURN.

CALVIN FROM THE 4.

LITTLE JUGGLE AT THE START, AND

HE CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE 20.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

GERRIS WILKINSON MADE THE

TACKLE.

AND A RETURN OF JUST 13 YARDS.

SO, STARTING AT THEIR OWN 17.

VICK'S IN TROUBLE.

STAYS UPRIGHT.

AND HIS LEGS GAVE OUT ON HIM

AFTER HE CROSSED THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE, A GAIN OF 1.

PRESSURE BY TUCK.

>> THEY JUST CAME OFF THE EDGE

AGAIN WITH PRESSURE AND TRIED

TO SORT THROUGH ALL THAT, BUT IT

HAS BEEN CONSISTENT PRESSURE BY

SECONDARY PLAYERS THE ENTIRE

HALF.

>> HERE'S MACLIN.

HE MAKES A CATCH.

THE BALL COMES OUT.

THEY'RE SAYING CATCH AND FUMBLE.

RETURN BY PHILLIPS.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

ANY REVIEW WOULD BE A BOOTH

REVIEW.

MICHAEL VICK THINKS THAT MACLIN

WAS DOWN.

THERE'S THE CATCH.

THE BALL IS COMING OUT.

PLAY WAS MADE BY TERRELL THOMAS.

ON THE TACKLE, HIS KNEE IS NOT

DOWN, AND THAT BALL IS COMING

OUT.

>> WELL, IT'S COMING OUT, JOE.

I THINK THE QUESTION IS, DID HE

EVER ACTUALLY SECURE THE CATCH?

THERE'S NO DOUBT THAT THE BALL

WAS OUT BEFORE HE GOES TO THE

GROUND.

BUT I'M NOT SO SURE THAT HE EVER

ACTUALLY HAD POSSESSION OF THE

BALL.

THAT'S CLOSE.

>> IT IS CLOSE.

AND REMEMBER, THE CALL ON THE

FIELD IS CATCH AND FUMBLE.

HERE'S THE CALL.

>> AFTER REVIEWING THE PLAY,

THE PLAY STANDS AS CALLED ON THE

FIELD.

FIRST AND GOAL.

>> INTERESTING.

>> INTERESTING IN THAT

JOHN PARRY RULES AGAIN, AN

ELEMENT OF TIME.

THERE WAS ENOUGH ON THE CATCH

END OF IT AND THEN THE FUMBLE ON

THE BALL KNOCKED OUT BY

TERRELL THOMAS.

AND THIS COULD BE -- THIS IS A

HUGE TURNAROUND, A GIVEAWAY BY

MACLIN AND NOW WITH 9 SECONDS

LEFT.

TWO TIME-OUTS ON THE BOARD.

THE GIANTS TAKE OVER AT THE 8.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

NICKS ON THE NEAR SIDE.

THAT'S WHERE MANNING GOES!

FOR THE TOUCHDOWN!

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> WELL, DIMITRI PATTERSON, YOU

DON'T DO THIS AS A CORNER IN

THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

WHEN YOU'RE BACKING UP INTO THE

END ZONE.

LOOK AT THE CUSHION RIGHT HERE

THAT HE'S GIVING HAKEEM NICKS.

THAT'S UNCONTESTED.

THE EAGLES CAME INTO THIS GAME

AS THE LAST-RANKED DEFENSE IN

RED ZONE DEFENSE.

AND ON THE FIRST PLAY AFTER THE

TURNOVER, ELI MANNING COMES

BACK, WORKS DIMITRI PATTERSON

AGAIN, THIS TIME WITH

HAKEEM NICKS.

AND THEY GET THE TOUCHDOWN.

>> THIS TO MAKE IT 24-3 WITH

5 SECONDS LEFT IN THE HALF.

WHAT A HALF BY THE GIANTS IN

THIS BATTLE FOR THE TOP SPOT

IN THE NFC EAST.

AND AT SOME POINT, WE NEED TO

TALK ABOUT PERRY FEWELL, WHO IS

THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR,

FIRST-YEAR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

FOR TOM COUGHLIN.

THEY WERE TOGETHER IN

JACKSONVILLE.

AND AFTER BEING WITH BUFFALO

LAST YEAR, TAKING OVER AS THE

INTERIM HEAD COACH, FEWELL HAS

THIS DEFENSE PLAYING AT A LEVEL

LAST SEEN WHEN STEVE SPAGNUOLO

WAS COORDINATING THE DEFENSE FOR

TOM COUGHLIN, WHEN THEY WON IT

ALL IN '07.

1 SECOND LEFT IN THE HALF, AND

HERE IS THAT CATCH AND FUMBLE BY

MACLIN, FORCED BY THOMAS.

AND THE VERY NEXT PLAY, NICKS,

WITH A CUSHION.

TOUCHDOWN NUMBER 10 ON THE

SEASON FOR NUMBER 88.

AND THERE'S PERRY FEWELL.

EVERY TIME HE WALKS OUT OF OUR

MEETING ROOM, YOU THINK,

"THERE'S A GUY WHO IS GONNA BE A

HEAD COACH -- FORGET INTERIM."

AND HE IS WORKING HIS WAY TOWARD

THAT WITH THE JOB HE HAS DONE

WITH THIS GIANTS DEFENSE.

WHATEVER ANDY REID SAID AT

HALFTIME, THEY BETTER COME OUT

READY HERE TO START THE SECOND

HALF.

NOT BEEN ABLE TO MOVE THE BALL

AT ALL ON OFFENSE.

FROM INSIDE THE 5,

JORRICK CALVIN ON THE RETURN.

PUSHES THE PILE ACROSS THE 25.

STILL WON'T GO DOWN.

AND HE'S MARKED AT THE 27.

THE EAGLES TRYING TO FIGURE OUT

A WAY TO MOVE IT AGAINST THE

NUMBER-TWO DEFENSE IN THE NFL.

VICK CAN'T FIND ANYWHERE TO GO

AND NOW COMES UNDERNEATH TO

LeSEAN McCOY.

THIS ONE IS BATTED DOWN.

I BELIEVE CANTY GOT HIS HAND UP

AND KNOCKED IT AWAY.

>> THE EAGLES JUST HAVE BEEN

UNABLE TO REALLY GET ANYTHING

GOING AND ESTABLISH ANY

CONSISTENCY WITHIN THEIR

OFFENSE.

THEIR LONGEST POSSESSION THERE

IN THAT FIRST HALF WAS JUST SIX

PLAYS.

>> AND NOW IT'S THIRD AND 6.

THEY FAKE THE INSIDE HAND-OFF,

AND VICK IS SACKED AGAIN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

JUSTIN TUCK.

>> JUSTIN TUCK AND THEN PICK

ANOTHER ONE.

THERE'S A BUNCH OF GUYS BACK

THERE.

BARRY COFIELD READY TO MAKE A

PLAY.

AND THAT'S IN ADDITION TO

WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING ON THE

BACK END WITH THE SECONDARY AND

THE EXCELLENT JOB THEY HAVE BEEN

DOING.

BEEN GETTING GREAT CONTRIBUTION

UP FRONT FROM THIS PASS RUSH, AS

YOU WOULD EXPECT.

>> THAT'S THE THIRD GIANT SACK

OF THE GAME.

TUCK HAS ONE AND A HALF OF THEM,

ALONG WITH FIVE TACKLES.

HERE IS BLACKMON.

DOES NOT GO DOWN EASILY.

GETS IT OUT TO THE 40.

THAT'S IT.

GIANTS' LAST THREE

POSSESSIONS -- A TOUCHDOWN, A

FIELD GOAL, A TOUCHDOWN.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

THEY START WITH JACOBS.

HE CARRIES IT FORWARD FOR 1.

TRENT COLE MADE THE STOP.

AND MICHAEL VICK HAS DONE A LOT

OF THAT.

ARMS TO THE SKY, WONDERING

WHAT'S GOING ON.

HE'S BEEN SACKED THREE TIMES,

AND THERE IS NOTHING GOING ON IN

THE PASS GAME FOR PHILADELPHIA.

>> IT IS A NEW YORK TEAM THAT

CAME INTO THIS GAME KNOWING THE

URGENCY THAT WAS BEFORE THEM.

HAVING LOST TO THE EAGLES IN

THEIR PREVIOUS MEETING, THIS WAS

REALLY A MUST-WIN FOR THE

NEW YORK GIANTS.

THE EAGLES COULD NOT CLINCH THE

DIVISION.

BUT FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES,

THEY WOULD HAVE OR WOULD IF THEY

WIN THIS GAME.

>> HERE IS BRADSHAW.

OUT TO MIDFIELD, A YARD SHY OF

A FIRST DOWN.

PARKER ON THE TACKLE.

>> I THINK THE GIANTS ON BOTH

SIDES OF THE BALL, WHETHER IT BE

DEFENSE AND THE WAY THEY HAVE

DOMINATED THIS BALLGAME, AND

THEN OFFENSIVELY, YOU KNOW, THE

EARLY GOING, HAD THE

INTERCEPTION.

DIDN'T GET MUCH GOING IN THE

NEXT COUPLE OF POSSESSIONS

OFFENSIVELY, BUT SINCE THAT

TIME, ELI MANNING HAS BEEN VERY

PRECISE IN HOW HE HAS THROWN THE

FOOTBALL, AND THEY'VE JUST

ATTACKED THIS DEFENSE EVERY

WHICH WAY.

>> THAT COMBO HELD FOR 39 RUSH

YARDS IN THE FIRST MEETING, 61

BETWEEN BRADSHAW AND JACOBS

TODAY.

HERE'S BRADSHAW.

AND HE WON'T GET IT.

GOOD PLAY UP FRONT BY THIS

EAGLES DEFENSE, AND THEY NEEDED

THAT.

A LOSS OF 1 ON THE PLAY.

YOU SEE COLE'S IN THERE ON THE

STOP.

BUT HE WASN'T ALONE.

>> THAT WAS A GREAT DEFENSIVE

SERIES RIGHT THERE BY THE

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES.

AND YOU SAID IT, JOE.

THEY NEEDED A STOP.

THEY COULDN'T AFFORD TO ALLOW

THE GIANTS TO GO BACK DOWN THE

FIELD WITH GREAT FIELD POSITION

AND COME AWAY WITH ANY TYPE OF

POINTS ALREADY DOWN 24-3.

SOMETHING THEY HAVE FAILED TO DO

OR HAVE STRUGGLED TO DO

THROUGHOUT THIS GAME -- GET OFF

THE FIELD ON THIRD DOWN -- THEY

NOW HAVE DONE IT.

>> PLAYOFF PICTURE IN THE NFC IS

INTERESTING TO TALK ABOUT.

WE'LL DO IT IF WE GET A CHANCE.

AS A FAIR CATCH HAULED IN BY

CALVIN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

HAND-OFF IS TO McCOY.

AND HE PICKS HIS WAY FOR 11.

BOLEY ON THE TACKLE.

AND ANOTHER LITTLE SKIRMISH

BREAKS OUT BACK NEAR THE

ORIGINAL LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.

MAX JEAN-GILLES IS IN THERE,

ALONG WITH BERNARD.

BUT THE OTHER TEAMS THAT ARE IN

THAT MIX FOR THE WILD-CARD SPOT,

TAMPA BAY.

LAST TIME I LOOKED UP IN THE

FOX BOX, THEY WERE TRAILING TO

DETROIT.

THAT GAME IS BEING PLAYED IN

TAMPA.

AND THEN GREEN BAY, THEY'RE

WITHOUT AARON RODGERS, AND THEY

PLAY TONIGHT IN NEW ENGLAND, AND

THEY HAVE EIGHT WINS.

BOTH OF THESE TWO CLUBS COME IN

WITH NINE.

VICK STUMBLES.

SOMEHOW GETS IT TO McCOY.

AND LeSEAN McCOY FIGHTS HIS WAY

THROUGH A TUCK TACKLE

MOMENTARILY.

TUCK BRINGS HIM DOWN, A GAIN OF

3.

>> WELL, THE EAGLES HAVE

STRUGGLED TO REALLY GAIN ANY

CONSISTENCY THROWING THE

FOOTBALL.

SO, THEY'RE TRYING TO GET THE

RUNNING GAME GOING, AND THEY

WERE FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO

MAKE THAT EXCHANGE BETWEEN VICK

AND McCOY.

BUT TRYING NOW TO RELY A LITTLE

BIT MORE ON THE RUNNING GAME AND

SEE IF THEY CAN'T START PICKING

UP SOME FIRST DOWNS AND GAIN A

LITTLE BIT OF CONFIDENCE HERE ON

THE OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE BALL.

>> PENALTY FLAG FLIES AS VICK

FINDS HIS FULLBACK, SCHMITT.

AND OWEN IS WRESTLED FORWARD.

A TACKLE BY BULLUCK, A GAIN OF

6.

BUT A FLAG THROWN AT THE SNAP.

>> ILLEGAL FORMATION, OFFENSE.

THE TIGHT END WAS COVERED UP AT

THE SNAP.

5-YARD PENALTY.

WILL REPLAY SECOND DOWN.

>> WE'RE GOING TO TAKE OFF THE

6-YARD GAIN.

TOM COUGHLIN ACCEPTS THE

PENALTY, AND IT'S SECOND AND 11.

>> WELL, YOU SEE HIM THERE.

IT'S BRENT CELEK, AND HE'S ON

THE BALL, AND SO SOMEBODY THEN,

THE RECEIVER ON THAT SIDE, YOU

SAW HIM LOOK AT IT, HE'S GOT TO

THEN GET OFF THE BALL.

AND HE DID NOT.

AND THEY HAD TOO MANY MEN ON THE

LINE OF SCRIMMAGE, ILLEGAL

FORMATION.

>> SECOND AND 11.

HERE'S McCOY, AND INITIALLY

NOTHING THERE.

THEN TRYING THE RIGHT SIDE.

PHILLIPS ON THE TACKLE, A GAIN

OF 5.

AND A LITTLE MORE MANAGEABLE

THIRD DOWN COMING UP FOR

PHILADELPHIA BECAUSE OF THE

EFFORT OF LeSEAN McCOY.

>> AND BECAUSE OF THE SCORE, AS

YOU WOULD EXPECT, WHAT WE NOW

SEE THE GIANTS GO TO, SOMETHING

THEY WERE NOT DOING MUCH OF

THERE IN FIRST HALF, IS THEY'RE

PLAYING MORE COVERAGE, GIVING

THE CORNERS HELP AND JUST TRYING

TO ENSURE THAT THEY'RE NOT GOING

TO GIVE UP A BIG-PLAY TOUCHDOWN.

>> THIRD DOWN AND 6.

VICK OVER THE MIDDLE.

PASS CAUGHT BY AVANT, EMERGING

AS ONE OF THE BETTER THIRD-DOWN

TARGETS AROUND THE NFL, NOT JUST

THE NFC.

18 YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN.

>> LeSEAN McCOY, HE COMES IN AND

CHOPS THE FEET RIGHT OUT FROM

UNDERNEATH OSI UMENYIORA.

AND THAT PLAY DEFENSIVELY, THE

GIANTS, THEY MATCHED UP

ONE-ON-ONE OUTSIDE AND DID NOT

GIVE HELP AGAIN.

AND THE EAGLES PICK UP A BIG

FIRST DOWN.

>> LONGEST PASS PLAY OF THE DAY

FOR THE EAGLES, A COMPLETION OF

18 YARDS.

HERE'S McCOY.

McGLYNN NOW TRYING TO BLOCK.

HE WHIFFED.

AND McCOY IS BROUGHT DOWN BY

ROLLE AFTER A GAIN OF 5.

>> I GUESS WHAT'S A LITTLE BIT

SURPRISING TO ME, JOE, HERE IS

THAT AS MUCH ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE

AS THE GIANTS ARE GIVING THE

EAGLES, THAT THEY HAVEN'T YET

TAKEN A SHOT DOWN THE FIELD.

NOW, VICK IS NOT AS WE HAVE

SEEN.

HE'S NOT BEING AFFORDED A LOT OF

TIME IN THE POCKET.

BUT HE HASN'T EVEN JUST DROPPED

BACK FIVE STEPS AND LET IT GO.

JUST TRY TO RUN THREE OR FOUR

VERTICALS AND TAKE YOUR CHANCES

WITH ONE OF THESE SPEED DEMONS

ON THE OUTSIDE.

THEY JUST HAVEN'T EVEN TRIED

THAT YET.

>> WELL, IT'S GETTING LATE.

DOWN 21.

INSIDE HAND-OFF, McCOY HAS GOT A

FIRST DOWN, AND LeSEAN McCOY IS

DOWN TO THE 42, A RUN OF 12.

HERE'S McCOY.

ROOM TO RUN ON THE OUTSIDE, AND

A HOLDING CALL.

A FLAG COMES IN LATE.

GIANTS BENCH WAS CALLING FOR IT.

>> NUMBER 87, OFFENSE.

10-YARD PENALTY -- REPLAY

FIRST DOWN.

>> THEY GET CELEK OUT ON THE

EDGE OF THAT PLAY.

>> YEAH, HE'S TRYING TO BLOCK

OSI UMENYIORA.

AND THIS IS HOW IT HAPPENS.

RIGHT THERE, HE'S FINE.

BUT THEN, AS SOON AS HE FEELS

OSI UMENYIORA TRYING TO GET OFF

THE BLOCK TO THEN GO MAKE THE

TACKLE, HE FEELS THAT GRAB, AND

IT'S AN EASY ONE FOR THE

OFFICIAL TO SEE.

>> MEANWHILE, DeSEAN JACKSON,

NFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE

WEEK, WHO HAD 4 CATCHES AT

DALLAS FOR 210 YARDS LAST

WEEKEND, HAS BEEN SHUT OUT.

THAT CONTINUES.

PASS IS COMPLETE TO MACLIN, A

GAIN OF 5.

>> MICHAEL VICK TRYING TO

NAVIGATE PASS RUSHERS.

THAT TIME, JUSTIN TUCK TO GET

THE FOOTBALL OFF TO

JEREMY MACLIN ANY WAY POSSIBLE.

YOU CAN TELL THIS PASS RUSH BY

THE GIANTS HAS AFFECTED SOME OF

THE PLAY-CALLING BY

MARTY MORNHINWEG IN NOT

TRUSTING -- THIS IS A FAST-BREAK

OFFENSE.

THEY WANT TO FORCE THE BALL DOWN

THE FIELD.

AND THEY JUST HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE

TO DO THAT.

>> GIANTS ARE SHOWING BLITZ.

THEY ALL COME.

VICK THROWS BEHIND HIS RECEIVER

AND ENDS UP ON THE GROUND.

MACLIN, THE INTENDED TARGET.

AND NOW IT'S THIRD AND 15.

>> AND MICHAEL BOLEY, THEY

OVERLOAD THAT SIDE.

AND THEY GOT ENOUGH BLOCKERS

THERE.

MICHAEL VICK'S EXPECTING

KING DUNLAP TO COME OUT.

EITHER HE DIDN'T PICK IT UP OR

GOT CONFUSED ON WHAT HIS

ASSIGNMENT WAS.

BUT THEY HAD ENOUGH BLOCKERS HAD

THEY JUST COMMUNICATED THAT A

LITTLE BIT BETTER ON THAT RIGHT

SIDE.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> HERE COME THE GIANTS.

OFFENSIVE LINE PICKS IT UP.

VICK THROWS HIGH.

INCOMPLETE FOR AVANT.

VICK HAD PROTECTION BUT MISSED

JASON AVANT.

IT'S FOURTH DOWN.

>> PRETTY GOOD COVERAGE THERE BY

AARON ROSS.

THAT COVERAGE IS CALLED 2-MAN.

THERE'S TWO SAFETIES DEEP, NOT

TO GIVE UP THE BIG PLAY, AND

THEN IT'S MAN-TO-MAN EVERYWHERE

ELSE.

AND VICK, FEELING PRESSURE,

GOT TO GET IT OUT OF HIS HANDS.

BUT AARON ROSS IS UNDERNEATH

THAT THROW.

IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN A HECK OF A

THROW THERE IN ORDER TO COMPLETE

THAT ONE.

BUT ONE THAT GOT AWAY.

DIDN'T MUCH MATTER.

JUST GOOD COVERAGE BY AARON ROSS

UNDERNEATH THE ROUTE.

>> THIS IS THE TOP THIRD-DOWN

DEFENSE IN THE NFL, THE

NEW YORK GIANTS.

THEY HAVE PLAYED BRILLIANTLY

DEFENSIVELY.

THAT BALL IS ILLEGALLY TOUCHED.

BLACKMON ON THE RETURN.

AND IT WAS COLT ANDERSON WHO WAS

DOWNFIELD AND TOUCHED THE BALL

FIRST AFTER A 31-YARD PUNT.

THEY DID THROW A FLAG.

FIRST DOWN, GIANTS.

WHAT A PLAY BY COLEMAN.

SECOND DOWN AND 12.

>> PRETTY GOOD STUFF.

FIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN A ROW,

GOING FOR SIX STRAIGHT.

>> AND IT'S BEEN FIVE WINS IN A

ROW IN THIS RIVALRY FOR THE

EAGLES OVER THE GIANTS.

THAT BALL'S OUT.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

THAT IS A FUMBLE RECOVERED BY

PHILADELPHIA AND A BREAK THEY

HAVE DESPERATELY NEEDED.

MANNINGHAM PUT IT ON THE GROUND.

>> YOU KIND OF GOT THE IDEA THAT

IF THE EAGLES ARE GOING TO GET

BACK INTO THIS GAME, THE DEFENSE

IS GOING TO HAVE TO FORCE SOME

TYPE OF TURNOVER TO CHANGE

MOMENTUM.

AND IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS

DEFINITELY OUT AND IN PLAY

BEFORE HE GOT TO THE SIDELINE.

YOU SEE TOM COUGHLIN.

THAT'S THE ONLY WAY THAT THE

EAGLES, BASED ON WHAT WE HAVE

SEEN HERE TODAY, HOW THEY GET

BACK IN THIS GAME, IS TO GIVE

THEM A SHORT FIELD ON A

TURNOVER.

AND THAT BALL IS LIVE.

AND THAT'S THE EAGLES' FOOTBALL.

>> YOU SEE PATTERSON GET ON TOP

OF IT.

IT WAS THE ROOKIE, JAMAR CHANEY,

TAKING OVER MIDDLE LINEBACKER ON

THE TACKLE, AND IT'S THE SECOND

GIANT TURNOVER.

>> IT'S JUST CARELESS WITH THE

BALL.

I DIDN'T EVEN SEE THAT

JAMAR CHANEY EVEN HIT HIM.

HIT THE BALL TO KNOCK IT OUT.

AS HE WAS SWINGING IT, IT JUST

SLIPPED OUT OF HIS HAND.

>> WHAT A CHANCE FOR THE EAGLES,

DOWN BY 21, AT THE GIANTS' 25.

PLAY-ACTION, VICK STEPS UP.

AND NOW HE'LL RUN.

SHOWS OFF HIS SPEED AND PICKS UP

A FIRST DOWN WITH A 13-YARD

CARRY.

>> IN ADDITION TO THE EAGLES

DEFENSE, YOU KNOW, REALLY HAVING

TO TRY TO MAKE A PLAY TO GET

THIS TEAM BACK IN IT, IT APPEARS

THAT THAT'S WHAT MICHAEL VICK

IS GONNA HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO,

'CAUSE THERE JUST HAS NOT BEEN

ANYWHERE TO GO WITH THE BALL

THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.

THIS TIME THEY ARE DOUBLING

DeSEAN JACKSON, AND THEY DID

GIVE UP A LANE, THOUGH.

THAT TIME THEY DID NOT CONTROL

MICHAEL VICK THE WAY THAT THEY

HAVE THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.

>> ONLY EAGLE POINTS IN THIS

GAME CAME OFF A TURNOVER.

CATCH MADE, TACKLE IMMEDIATELY

BY BOLEY AS HE BROUGHT DOWN

AVANT, A GAIN OF 4.

>> WELL, YOU GOT TO BELIEVE THAT

ANDY REID IS LOOKING AT THIS

RIGHT NOW AS FOUR-DOWN

TERRITORY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY CANNOT

COME AWAY WITH A TOUCHDOWN OR AT

LEAST ATTEMPT TO ON THIS

POSSESSION.

>> DOWN BY 21, UNDER FIVE TO GO

IN THE THIRD.

BLITZ COMING.

EAGLES PICK IT UP.

WIDE OPEN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN,

MACLIN.

AND THE FIST TOUCHDOWN OF THIS

GAME FOR THE EAGLES.

WELL-BLOCKED, MACLIN SLIPS OUT

FREE AND AN 8-YARD TOUCHDOWN

CATCH FOR JEREMY, HIS NINTH

TOUCHDOWN OF THE YEAR.

>> PRETTY GOOD DESIGN RIGHT

THERE.

YOU'RE GONNA SEE, HE'S GOING TO

COME FROM OVER HERE, BUT THEY GO

MOTION WITH DeSEAN JACKSON.

AND THAT GETS EVERYBODY THINKING

FLOW THAT WAY.

AND MACLIN IS ABLE TO COME

UNDERNEATH DeSEAN JACKSON'S

ROUTE, AND NOBODY GOES WITH HIM.

>> TALKED TO MARTY MORNHINWEG,

AND HE SAID, "MAN, I'LL TAKE

JEREMY MACLIN ANY DAY."

AND HE WAS JUST LEFT WIDE OPEN.

BUSTED COVERAGE AND THE

TOUCHDOWN TO MAKE IT A 14-POINT

GAME.

HERE'S D.J. WARE.

GIANTS HAVE TO GO BACK TO WORK,

AND D.J. WARE, PRETTY GOOD

KICK RETURNER.

HE'S OUT ACROSS THE 30.

THIRD QUARTER, 3:49 LEFT.

MANNING WITH TIME.

JACOBS DROPPED IT.

TOOK HIS EYE OFF IT.

>> GO BACK TO THAT TOUCHDOWN AND

SEE WHAT HAPPENED HERE.

TERRELL THOMAS IS TRYING TO

COMMUNICATE TO COREY WEBSTER

THAT HE'S NOT GOING TO TAKE

JEREMY MACLIN IF HE GOES ACROSS

THE FIELD.

THEY CALL THIS BANJO COVERAGE.

IT WAS ZONE COVERAGE, AND HE'S

TRYING TO COMMUNICATE IT TO HIM.

BUT COREY WEBSTER NEVER SEES

THAT.

HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT

TERRELL THOMAS WAS TRYING TO

TELL HIM, AND HE WAS IN MAN

COVERAGE THEN WITH

DeSEAN JACKSON.

BUT THAT EXPLAINS THEN WHY

TERRELL THOMAS DIDN'T STAY IN

MAN COVERAGE HIMSELF AND GO

WITH JEREMY MACLIN.

>> INSTEAD, MACLIN WIDE OPEN.

AND NOW IT'S SECOND AND 10.

HERE'S NICKS.

BROUGHT DOWN WITH A FIRST DOWN

AT THE 45.

COMPLETION OF 11 YARDS, AND NOW

ERNIE SIMS IS SLOW TO GET UP.

TRADED TO THE EAGLES FROM

DETROIT.

AND KURT COLEMAN'S GRABBING HIS

RIGHT CALF.

THEY ARE GOING DOWN THE LAST

COUPLE OF WEEKS IN A HURRY HERE

ON THIS EAGLES DEFENSE.

>> OH.

>> AND IT WAS SIMS AND COLEMAN

WHO CAME TOGETHER, AND BOTH WERE

SLOW TO GET UP.

AND NOW COLEMAN IS THE ONE WHO

APPEARS MORE INJURED.

>> AS WE KNOW, THEY'RE ALREADY

THIN AT THAT POSITION WITH

NATE ALLEN GOING DOWN.

>> GIANTS HAVE GIVEN THE BALL

AWAY 35 TIMES OFFENSIVELY.

THAT'S THE MOST IN THE NFL.

HERE'S JACOBS, NO GAIN.

I GUESS YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH

THAT AND STILL BE FIGHTING FOR A

DIVISIONAL LEAD WHEN YOU TAKE

IT AWAY MORE THAN ANY TEAM ON

DEFENSE.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE GIANTS HAVE

DONE.

EACH SIDE WITH 2 TURNOVERS IN

THIS GAME.

AND ELI MANNING WITH 3 TOUCHDOWN

PASSES COMPARED TO

1 INTERCEPTION.

SECOND DOWN AND 10.

>> THERE'S NOT TOO MANY TEAMS

IN THE LEAGUE THAT CAN TURN THE

BALL OVER AS MANY TIMES AS THE

GIANTS HAVE AND, YOU KNOW, HAVE

A WINNING RECORD, LET ALONE BE

PLAYING FOR THE DIVISIONAL LEAD.

>> ON SECOND DOWN, PLAY-ACTION.

AND MANNING TRYING TO FIND

SOMEWHERE TO GO WITH IT.

INCOMPLETE.

AND IT'S SIMS ALL OVER

BRANDON JACOBS.

>> WELL, HE HAD PLENTY OF TIME

TO THROW IT, JUST NOWHERE TO

THROW IT TO.

YOU SEE EVERYBODY ON THE FIELD

WAS PRETTY MUCH DOUBLE-COVERED.

HAKEEM NICKS, AND YOU'VE GOT --

THEY'RE PLAYING IN AND OUT THERE

ON KEVIN BOSS AND THEN ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE FIELD, AS

WELL.

>> EAGLES CAME IN 14th IN THE

NFL DEFENDING ON THIRD DOWN.

GIANTS ARE 6-FOR-11.

IT'S THIRD AND 10, BLITZ.

PASS, CAUGHT BY HAGAN.

SAMUEL WITH A TACKLE TO HOLD

HAGAN SHORT OF A FIRST DOWN.

HE'S KNOWN FOR HIS

INTERCEPTIONS, NOT HIS TACKLING,

BUT HE MADE THE STOP IN TIME TO

PREVENT THE FIRST DOWN.

>> THAT WAS A GOOD JOB.

A LOT OF TIMES WITH THE THROW,

THE THROW WAS BEHIND HAGAN, AND

A LOT OF TIMES BECAUSE OF THAT,

THE MOMENTUM OF THE RECEIVER

WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE THE

DEFENDER MISS AND PICK UP THAT

FIRST DOWN.

SAMUEL, WHO WAS A LITTLE OUT OF

POSITION, TRYING TO MAKE THE

TACKLE, DID A NICE JOB.

>> ASANTE SAMUEL, WHO HAS

42 CAREER INTERCEPTIONS, 7

AGAINST THE MANNING BROTHERS,

SAID HE WASN'T GOING TO MISS

THIS ONE AGAINST ELI MANNING.

MADE A GOOD TACKLE.

CALVIN ON THE RETURN AFTER JUST

A 38-YARD PUNT.

THAT'S THE TIGHT END, THE

ROOKIE, CLAY HARBOR, FALLING AS

HE MADE THE CATCH.

ROLLS FORWARD FOR 4.

>> [ CHUCKLES ]

THAT'S KIND OF BEEN THE DAY FOR

THIS OFFENSE.

HERE THIS AFTERNOON, THEY ARE

ABLE TO GET THE BALL TO

CLAY HARBOR, WIDE OPEN, AND IF

HE CATCHES IT AND STAYS ON HIS

FEET, HE'S ABLE TO AT LEAST GET

A FEW MORE YARDS.

GOT TO TUCK AND ROLL THERE.

>> PLAYED AT MISSOURI STATE,

FOURTH-ROUND PICK, AND HE SAID

HE NEVER HAD TO PASS-BLOCK IN

COLLEGE.

SO, HE'S TRYING TO LEARN THAT.

THAT WAS HIS FOURTH CATCH OF THE

SEASON.

VICK SLINGS IT SIDELINE,

FIRST DOWN.

THE PASS CAUGHT.

THERE'S THE FIRST OF THE DAY BY

DeSEAN JACKSON, GOOD FOR 8.

>> WELL, YOU CAN SEE.

IT'S AMAZING HOW MUCH OFFENSIVE

FOOTBALL IS JUST ABOUT MOMENTUM

AND RHYTHM, AND THAT TURNOVER,

AGAIN, TO GO BACK TO THAT, WITH

MARIO MANNINGHAM AND THEN YOU

SCORE A TOUCHDOWN AND YOU FEEL

PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THAT, BEING

ABLE TO PUNCH IT IN.

AND RIGHT NOW THIS OFFENSE IS

GETTING OUT OF THE HUDDLE.

THEY'RE GETTING TO THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE, AND THAT WAS A NICE

FIRST DOWN FOR THEM.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> BLITZ.

HAND-OFF TO McCOY.

AND HE IS KNOCKED DOWN AFTER A

GAIN OF 2.

GOFF ON THE STOP.

>> JUSTIN TUCK HAS BEEN A

DISRUPTIVE FORCE THROUGHOUT THIS

GAME.

HE'S BATTLING THROUGH GUYS AND

THROWING HIS BODY IN THERE AND

ABLE TO MAKE A PLAY ON

LeSEAN McCOY.

>> WELL, WE ARE THROUGH THREE

QUARTERS.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

AND A FALSE START.

>> FALSE START, NUMBER 87,

OFFENSE.

5-YARD PENALTY -- SECOND DOWN.

>> THAT'S BRENT CELEK WHO LED

THIS EAGLES TEAM LAST YEAR WITH

76 CATCHES.

HAS ONLY 30.

GUILTY OF THE FALSE START.

THERE ARE THE STATS THROUGH

THREE.

GIANTS HAVE BEEN HELD TO

58 YARDS RUSHING.

THEY'RE GOING TO NEED THAT RUN

GAME, YOU GET THE FEELING,

BEFORE THE END OF IT.

SECOND AND 13.

>> BRENT CELEK'S HAD A COUPLE

OF COSTLY PENALTIES IN THIS

GAME.

>> EARLIER A HOLD, NOW A

FALSE START.

THIS ONE IS BATTED INTO THE AIR,

AND IT FALLS TO THE TURF, TRYING

TO GET IT TO JACKSON.

>> YOU SEE THE FRUSTRATION THERE

ON MICHAEL VICK'S FACE.

THIS IS JUST A -- THIS IS AN

OFFENSE THAT HAS NOT EXPERIENCED

ANYTHING LIKE THIS WITH

MICHAEL VICK AT QUARTERBACK.

THEY HAVE PRETTY MUCH HAD THEIR

WAY AGAINST THE DEFENSES THEY

HAVE FACED ALL SEASON LONG.

>> BLITZ COMING.

VICK STEPS UP, AIRS IT OUT,

DOWNFIELD.

MACLIN HAD TO WAIT.

BROKEN UP.

TERRELL THOMAS.

IF HE LEADS HIM, IT'S A

TOUCHDOWN.

BUT THOMAS HAD JUST ENOUGH TIME

TO RECOVER.

>> WELL, THEY BROUGHT THE EDGE

PRESSURE, WHICH FORCED VICK TO

STEP UP.

BUT IT WAS BARRY COFIELD RIGHT

IN THE MIDDLE THAT REALLY MADE

VICK NOT BE ABLE TO GET ANYTHING

ON THE THROW.

IF HE HAD JUST BEEN ABLE TO STEP

UP BECAUSE OF THE OUTSIDE

PRESSURE, HE DELIVERS A MUCH

BETTER BALL, BUT BARRY COFIELD

WINNING IN THE MIDDLE IS WHAT

GOT VICK OFF BALANCE AND UNABLE

TO GET, AS GOOD AN ARM STRENGTH

AS HE HAS, ENOUGH ON THE BALL TO

GET THE TOUCHDOWN BECAUSE THEY

HAD A CHANCE DOWN THE FIELD.

>> MACLIN WAS WIDE OPEN.

TERRELL THOMAS RECOVERED.

HERE IS BLACKMON DANCING AROUND,

SPINNING AROUND.

SURVIVES A HIT. HANGS ON.

GIANTS HAVE THE FOOTBALL.

IN THE SECOND HALF, THEY'VE HAD

IT THREE TIMES.

ONE FIRST DOWN.

THEY'VE PUNTED TWICE, FUMBLED.

AND, AGAIN, THAT GROUND GAME,

WHICH HAS BEEN SO GOOD COMING

IN, SHUT DOWN THE LAST TIME THEY

PLAYED THE EAGLES.

HERE'S BOSS.

WIDE OPEN.

KEVIN BOSS WITH ANOTHER BIG

SECOND-HALF RECEPTION.

GOOD FOR 36.

>> GOOD CALL THERE BY

KEVIN GILBRIDE.

BACKED UP, A BIG LEAD.

YOU GO PLAY-ACTION PASS.

EVERYBODY IS THINKING YOU'RE

GOING TO TRY TO RUN THE BALL AND

TAKE TIME OFF THE CLOCK.

AND KEVIN BOSS WORKING THE

MIDDLE OF THE FIELD, JUST WIDE

OPEN, PROBABLY DOESN'T HAVE AS

BIG A GAIN IF DIMITRI PATTERSON

LOSES HIS FEET.

HE WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE TO MAKE

A TACKLE.

BUT JUST A NICE JOB OF SETTING

THAT ONE UP THERE BY

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR

KEVIN GILBRIDE.

>> HERE'S BRADSHAW.

JAMAR CHANEY, NEW MIDDLE

LINEBACKER THERE, WITH A TACKLE.

A GAIN OF 5.

>> WE'LL GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK

AT THAT LAST THROW BY

MICHAEL VICK AND AN OPPORTUNITY

THAT WAS LOST BECAUSE OF THE

PRESSURE INSIDE.

YOU CAN SEE THERE ON THE LEFT

SIDE OF THE SCREEN,

JEREMY MACLIN HAD

TERRELL THOMAS BEAT DEEP.

BUT, YOU KNOW, HIM HAVING TO

FLOAT THE BALL MORE THAN WHAT HE

WOULD HAVE LIKED, IT ALLOWED

TERRELL THOMAS THEN TO GET BACK

UNDERNEATH THAT AND GET A HAND

ON THE BALL.

>> SECOND DOWN AND 5.

PASS BATTED IN THE AIR AND STILL

HAD A SHOT AT A COMPLETION TO

MANNINGHAM.

INCOMPLETE.

BY THE WAY, FOR VICK, AS FOKOU

GOT A HAND ON THIS PASS, VICK'S

HAD THREE PASSES BATTED DOWN OR

INTO THE AIR AND NOW MANNING'S

HAD A COUPLE, LATEST BY

MOISE FOKOU.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

QUARTERBACKS DON'T LIKE THAT,

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU GOT AN OPEN

RECEIVER.

HARD ENOUGH COMPLETING PASSES

IN THIS LEAGUE WHEN YOU DON'T

HAVE LINEMEN JUMPING UP AND

KNOCKING THE BALL DOWN.

>> MANNING IS FORCED OUT OF THE

POCKET TO HIS RIGHT.

AND HE JUST FLOATS IT AWAY.

INCOMPLETE.

I THINK THE INTERESTING THING IS

THIS IS A GIANTS OFFENSE THAT

COMING IN OVER THE LAST THREE

GAMES HAD RUSHED FOR 135 YARDS,

197, 213 LAST WEEK IN DETROIT

AGAINST MINNESOTA.

THIS IS WHERE YOU WOULD LEAN ON

A RUN GAME, AND FOR THE SECOND

CONSECUTIVE MEETING, THE

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES DEFENSE HAS

FOR THE MOST PART SHUT DOWN THE

GIANTS ON THE GROUND.

>> AND THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO

ALLOW THE EAGLES TO HAVE A

CHANCE IN THIS GAME, BUT, YOU

KNOW, THEY'VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO

DO IT ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE OF

THE BALL, AS WELL.

>> SO, THE GIANTS GET IT WITH

STILL JUST UNDER 13 MINUTES LEFT

IN THE HALF.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

VICK, WIDE OPEN, DeSEAN JACKSON.

AND THAT BALL CAME OUT WHEN

JACKSON HIT THE TURF.

WAS HE TOUCHED?

RIGHT NOW IT'S A FUMBLE.

AND IT BELONGS TO THE GIANTS.

KENNY PHILLIPS ON THE RECOVERY.

AND LET'S TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT

THIS REPLAY.

JACKSON IS TOUCHED THERE ON HIS

WAY TO THE GROUND, AND THE BALL

COMES OUT.

I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

ANDY REID WILL THROW THE RED

FLAG ON.

>> ...SINCE THE RECEIVER WAS

NEVER DOWN BY CONTACT BY TOUCH.

RECOVERED BY NEW YORK.

FIRST AND 10, NEW YORK.

>> THEY'RE SAYING THAT THE

RECEIVER WAS NEVER TOUCHED.

DOWN BY CONTACT.

YOU CAN SEE GOFF GET THE BACK OF

JACKSON ON HIS WAY TO THE

GROUND.

AND THERE IS NO CHALLENGE FLAG

THROWN BY ANDY REID.

HE SHOULD THROW IT.

>> THERE'S NO QUESTION HE SHOULD

THROW IT.

HE'S WAITING RIGHT NOW TO TRY TO

DETERMINE IF HE'S GOING TO.

HE'S ONLY CHALLENGED SIX CALLS

ALL YEAR.

I'M SHOCKED HE'S NOT CHALLENGING

THIS.

HE'S GOT IT IN HIS HANDS.

>> UNBELIEVABLE.

JACOBS OVER THE LEFT SIDE.

A GAIN OF 5.

>> IT IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE

ELI MANNING'S FUMBLE THE LAST

TIME THE TWO TEAMS PLAYED THERE

IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.

HE WENT TO THE GROUND TRYING TO

GIVE HIMSELF UP.

BUT HE HAD NOT BEEN TOUCHED.

HE WAS CLEARLY TOUCHED ON THIS

ONE.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND

THAT PHILADELPHIA MAINTAINS

POSSESSION IF ANDY REID HAD

CHALLENGED THAT CALL.

I DON'T KNOW WHY HE DIDN'T.

>> I AGREE.

HE'S GOT TO THROW THE RED FLAG.

AND HE'S NEVER BEEN SHY TO THROW

IT.

HE'S NOT A GUY WHO DOESN'T TAKE

A CHANCE, HOPING FOR A REVERSAL,

AND THAT IS A MISS.

HERE'S BOSS.

FORCED OUT OF BOUNDS, BUT

ANOTHER COMPLETION TO

KEVIN BOSS, THIS ONE GOOD FOR

15.

WATCH THE RIGHT HAND OF GOFF.

JACKSON ON HIS WAY DOWN IS

TOUCHED UP THE BACK.

>> LOOKED LIKE ANDY REID WAS

TRYING TO GET WORD FROM UP TOP.

BUT HE NEVER GOT IT.

>> JACOBS.

>> AND UP TOP, I'M REFERRING

TO SOMEONE WITHIN THE EAGLES

ORGANIZATION, WHOEVER IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR HELPING HIM MAKE

THAT DETERMINATION AS TO

WHETHER HE'S GOING TO CHALLENGE

A CALL.

>> AND NOW ASANTE SAMUEL AND

BRANDON JACOBS START TO SHOVE

EACH OTHER.

I MEAN, THE ONLY EXPLANATION

FOR NOT THROWING THAT FLAG IS TO

SAY THAT THE EAGLES BELIEVED

THAT JACKSON WASN'T GOING TO THE

GROUND AND THAT WASN'T PART OF

THE PLAY WITH HIM GOING TO THE

TURF BEFORE THE BALL POPPED OUT.

BUT I WOULD DISAGREE WITH THAT.

>> YEAH, I JUST DON'T THINK THAT

ANDY EVER HAD ANYBODY TELL HIM

IT SHOULD BE CHALLENGED.

HE DIDN'T SEE IT WELL ENOUGH TO

BE ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT

HIMSELF.

>> HERE'S AHMAD BRADSHAW,

WRESTLED TO THE GROUND BY SIMS.

A GAIN OF 3.

IT'S THIRD AND 2.

BUT EITHER WAY, I MEAN, YOU WANT

THEM TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AND

HOPE THAT YOU CATCH A BREAK.

YOU'RE DOWN BY 14 POINTS.

YOU'RE TRYING TO -- TRYING TO

GAIN MORE MOMENTUM GOING

FORWARD.

AND WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO CHECK

IN WITH MIKE PEREIRA TO GET HIS

VIEW FROM OUT IN LOS ANGELES.

IT'S THIRD AND 2 HERE FOR THE

GIANTS.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

AND COMING ACROSS EARLY WAS THE

ROOKIE CHANEY.

>> ENCROACHMENT, NUMBER 51,

DEFENSE.

5-YARD PENALTY WILL RESULT IN A

FIRST DOWN.

>> TOO AGGRESSIVE ON THE BLITZ.

AND IT'S A FIRST DOWN WITH A

PENALTY.

BALL IS PLACED INSIDE THE 15.

THIS IS A PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

DEFENSE THAT IS LAST IN THE NFL

IN DEFENDING THE RED ZONE.

COMING IN, OPPONENTS HAD BEEN IN

36 TIMES, SCORED 28 TOUCHDOWNS.

JUST UNDER 80%.

GIANTS ARE 1-FOR-2 TODAY.

BRANDON JACOBS FOR A COUPLE OVER

THE LEFT SIDE.

LET'S CHECK IN WITH

MIKE PEREIRA.

MIKE, WHAT DID YOU SEE ON THAT

FUMBLE AS IT WAS RULED BY

DeSEAN JACKSON?

>> WELL, I SEE YOU GOT TO

CHALLENGE THAT.

I'M THINKING WAS PHILLY THINKING

ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE JUST

TOUCHED THE HAND-WARMER MUFF IN

THE BACK BECAUSE THAT WOULDN'T

HAVE PUT HIM DOWN.

BUT THE HAND DOES SLIDE DOWN

THE BACK.

THAT'S THE THING THAT WOULD

HAVE PUT HIM DOWN.

AND I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY THEY

DIDN'T CHALLENGE IT, EITHER.

>> I'M GLAD YOU SAW THE SAME

THING WE DID.

AND YET ANDY REID PUT THE RED

FLAG BACK IN HIS POCKET.

THAT IS A MISTAKE BY OUR

JUDGMENT AND A MISSED

OPPORTUNITY FOR REID ON WHAT WAS

THE BIGGEST PLAY TO

DeSEAN JACKSON ALL DAY.

>> AND I WILL SAY THIS.

THE RULES ARE WHAT THEY ARE.

YOU ACCEPT THAT AS A HEAD COACH.

BUT I WILL SAY THAT NOT ONLY

ANDY REID, BUT ALL HEAD COACHES

AROUND THE LEAGUE, THEY GOT

ENOUGH TO WORRY ABOUT DURING THE

COURSE OF A GAME.

I'VE ALWAYS MAINTAINED IT SHOULD

NOT BE THE HEAD COACH, THE

HEAD COACH'S RESPONSIBILITY TO

DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT A PLAY

SHOULD BE CHALLENGED.

THEY'RE TRYING TO BE A

HEAD COACH AND GET THEIR OWN

TEAM TO PLAY.

AND THEY SHOULDN'T THEN HAVE TO

HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF

MAKING SURE THE OFFICIALS ARE

GETTING CALLS RIGHT ON THE

FIELD, ALSO.

>> IT'S THIRD AND 5.

MANNING OVER THE MIDDLE.

BOSS, TOUCHDOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> SO, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT

THE YOUNG ROOKIE, JAMAR CHANEY.

THIS IS ONE RIGHT HERE.

HE JUST PASSES HIM UP, LETS HIM

GO BY HIM BECAUSE HE SEES A

CROSSING ROUTE COMING IN FRONT

OF HIM.

AND IT OPENED UP THE THROWING

LANE FOR KEVIN BOSS,

UNCONTESTED.

QUINTIN MIKELL, YOU SEE HIM

THERE, BUT JAMAR CHANEY, THE

MIDDLE LINEBACKER, HAS TO CARRY

THAT UP THE SEAM.

>> IT'S A 4-TOUCHDOWN DAY FOR

ELI MANNING.

HOW ABOUT THE DAY FOR

ELI MANNING?

HIS LATEST ONE TO KEVIN BOSS.

ELI TIES HIS CAREER HIGH WITH

4 TOUCHDOWN THROWS IN THIS GAME.

HAS SET A NEW CAREER HIGH WITH

28 TOUCHDOWN PASSES ON THE YEAR.

BUT IN THIS BATTLE AGAINST

PHILADELPHIA, WE SAID IT IN THE

FIRST HALF, AND IT'S STILL TRUE.

ELI MANNING HAS OUTPLAYED

MICHAEL VICK.

HERE'S JORRICK CALVIN OUT TO

THE 25.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

HERE'S MACLIN.

HE HAS GOT A FIRST DOWN IT WOULD

APPEAR.

HE DOES.

WRESTLED DOWN BY UMENYIORA.

OUT THERE FOR THE TACKLE ON

JEREMY MACLIN.

>> GIVE PERRY FEWELL,

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, SOME

CREDIT.

HE'S STILL BRINGING THE HEAT AND

DOING THE THINGS THEY HAVE DONE

THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.

>> ON FIRST DOWN.

PASS TO CELEK.

A WHIFF ON THE TACKLE BY

PHILLIPS, AND CELEK GETS A BLOCK

AND WILL CRUISE IN FOR THE

TOUCHDOWN.

MACLIN WITH A GOOD BLOCK AFTER

KENNY PHILLIPS MISSED ON THE

TACKLE.

AND IN A BLINK, THE

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ARE IN A

POSITION TO AGAIN BE DOWN BY

ONLY 14.

>> YEAH, WELL, THEY BROUGHT THE

BLITZ AGAIN.

THEY DID ON FIRST DOWN, AND THEY

DID AGAIN OFF THE EDGE.

AARON ROSS, 31, AND THE EAGLES

PICK IT UP.

BUT THEN IT IS JUST MAN-TO-MAN

ON THE BACK END.

KENNY PHILLIPS, HE'S PLAYING

MIDDLE OF THE FIELD.

AND WHEN YOU THROW THE BALL DOWN

THE MIDDLE, AS THEY DO HERE TO

BRENT CELEK, THAT'S THE PLAY.

KENNY PHILLIPS GOES FOR IT,

THINKING IT'S GOING TO BE AN

INTERCEPTION.

BRENT CELEK'S THERE TO CATCH

THE BALL.

AND THAT'S THE ONE THING THAT

TOM COUGHLIN DIDN'T WANT TO SEE

HAPPEN.

>> A CAREER LONG FOR CELEK,

65 YARDS, AND IT'S A 14-POINT

GAME AGAIN WITH 7 1/2 TO GO.

CELEK'S A REAL GOOD, YOUNG

TIGHT END IN THIS LEAGUE, AND

VICK FORCED ONE TO HIM LAST WEEK

AT DALLAS THAT WENT FOR AN

INTERCEPTION.

AND CELEK IMMEDIATELY CAME OVER

TO THE BENCH AND TALKED TO VICK

AND SAID, "HEY, I KNOW YOU'RE

TRYING TO FORCE IT TO ME.

DON'T DO IT.

JUST LET IT HAPPEN NATURALLY."

VICK REALLY APPRECIATED IT, AND

NOW, A WEEK LATER, HE'S GOT A

65-YARD TOUCHDOWN THROW.

>> FOR THE YEAR THAT HE HAD LAST

YEAR, TO NOT HAVE MORE

PRODUCTION AND HANDLE IT THE WAY

THAT HE HAS, HAS BEEN ADMIRABLE.

>> HERE IS AN ONSIDE-KICK TRY,

AND IT'S HAULED IN.

IT IS A GOOD PLAY.

IT BELONGS TO THE EAGLES,

RILEY COOPER.

THE ROOKIE OUT OF FLORIDA, AND A

PERFECT ONSIDE KICK FROM

DAVID AKERS.

>> AND THE GIANTS WERE NOT

ANTICIPATING THAT AT ALL.

THEY WERE TURNING AND RUNNING

OUT.

YOU SEE THEY'RE NOT -- THEY JUST

NOW COME TO THE SCREEN BECAUSE

AT THE TIME THAT AKERS STARTED

TO ADDRESS THE FOOTBALL, THEY

WERE TURNING AND RUNNING,

ANTICIPATING THE DEEP KICKOFF.

AND IT WAS JUST A PERFECT KICK

ALSO BY DAVID AKERS.

>> IT'S GOT TO GO 10 YARDS.

IT DID.

AND THE EAGLES, WHO ARE SECONDS

OFF THAT 65-YARDER TO CELEK,

WILL LINE UP AT THEIR OWN 43,

DOWN BY 14 POINTS.

>> WELL, REMEMBER -- I MEAN, THE

EAGLES HAVE BEAT A LOT OF TEAMS

IN THE FOURTH QUARTER, INCLUDING

THE NEW YORK GIANTS, JUST FOUR

WEEKS AGO.

THIS IS A TEAM THAT RALLIES LATE

IN GAMES, AND RIGHT NOW

DEFENSIVELY, I GOT TO THINK

THAT IT'S GETTING A LITTLE BIT

NERVOUS.

>> OUT OF THE SHOTGUN, VICK,

BACKPEDALING, HITS

DeSEAN JACKSON.

AND JACKSON PICKED UP A FIRST

DOWN WITH A 13-YARD CATCH AND

RUN.

DAVID AKERS, TROY, IS NOW

8-FOR-18 SUCCESSFULLY EXECUTING

AN ONSIDE KICK.

HE'S GOT A TALENT FOR THAT.

THAT WAS WELL-DONE.

>> YEAH, AND THAT JUST DOESN'T

HAPPEN, YOU KNOW?

THAT'S A LOT OF PRACTICE OUT

THERE ON THE PRACTICE FIELD,

TRYING TO GET THAT BOUNCED AND

GET IT AT JUST THE RIGHT

DISTANCE.

>> VICK SIDESTEPS A SACK AND NOW

WILL TAKE IT RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE

OF THE FIELD.

SLIDES DOWN HEADFIRST INSIDE THE

10.

>> BUT DEON GRANT HAD A FREE RUN

AT MICHAEL VICK.

THEY WERE MAKING THESE PLAYS IN

THE FIRST HALF.

BUT VICK JUST MAKES A GREAT

ATHLETIC MOVE THERE AND GETS

UNDERNEATH HIM, AND THEN THEY'RE

IN MAN COVERAGE ON THE BACK END

OF THAT AND NOBODY ACCOUNTING

FOR THE QUARTERBACK.

ONCE HE BREAKS THAT CONTAIN

RIGHT THERE, THERE IS JUST

NOBODY THERE BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL

RUNNING WITH THEIR BACK TO THE

QUARTERBACK.

>> THAT'S A SEASON-LONG 35-YARD

RUN BY VICK.

NOW THEY'RE AT THE 9.

HIGH SNAP AGAIN.

VICK, LOOKING FOR JACKSON,

INCOMPLETE.

PRESSURE BY UMENYIORA FORCED

VICK TO GET RID OF IT.

MICHAEL VICK IS NUMBER TWO ALL

TIME AMONG QUARTERBACKS RUNNING

THE FOOTBALL.

FIRST IS RANDALL CUNNINGHAM,

THEN MICHAEL VICK.

AND HE'S OVER 500 YARDS RUSHING

FOR THE SEASON.

SECOND AND GOAL.

PENALTY FLAG ON THE PLAY, AND

VICK IS WRESTLED DOWN BY TUCK.

BALL CAME OUT.

THEY'RE CALLING THE PLAY DEAD.

JEAN-GILLES GETS ON TOP OF IT,

ANYWAY.

>> AT THE SNAP, OFFSIDE,

DEFENSE, NUMBER 91.

LINED UP IN THE NEUTRAL ZONE AT

THE SNAP.

HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL.

REPLAY SECOND DOWN.

>> SO, THEY GET TUCK, WHO WAS

THE ONE WHO MADE THE PLAY.

AND IT'S SECOND AND GOAL.

THEY WILL MOVE THE FOOTBALL

INSIDE THE 5.

>> THE EAGLES SCORED THE LAST

TIME THEY PLAYED THE GIANTS ON

THE QUARTERBACK DRAW.

THEY TRIED TO GO WITH IT ON THAT

LAST PLAY, BUT BECAUSE OF THE

BLITZES THAT THE GIANTS KEEP

SHOWING, THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE

A LOT OF PLACES FOR MICHAEL VICK

TO RUN.

>> HERE THEY COME AGAIN.

QUICK THROW, AND IT'S KNOCKED

DOWN.

FOURTH TIME THAT'S HAPPENED.

VICK HAS HAD A PASS KNOCKED DOWN

FOUR TIMES IN THIS GAME.

>> THERE WAS A LOT OF BODIES

RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE FIELD, AND THAT'S WHERE

THEY'RE TRYING TO BRING THE

PRESSURE ON THIS LAST PLAY.

THAT'S HARD.

IT'S HARD THROWING THOSE SLANTS

DOWN HERE, THE INSIDE SLANTS TO

THOSE INSIDE RECEIVERS DOWN IN

THE RED ZONE AT THIS PART OF THE

FIELD AND ESPECIALLY WITH ALL

THE BODIES THAT ARE STACKED IN

THE MIDDLE.

>> ROCKY BERNARD MADE THAT PLAY.

IT'S THIRD AND GOAL.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

VICK ON A QUARTERBACK DRAW.

TOUCHDOWN, PHILLY!

AND WE ARE AN EXTRA POINT AWAY

FROM A 7-POINT GAME.

>> WELL, THEY DO A GOOD JOB WITH

THE DRAW BECAUSE INSTEAD OF

MICHAEL VICK TRYING TO TAKE IT

UP THE MIDDLE, WHERE THE

LINEBACKERS ARE, BOLEY, THEY

TAKE IT OFF TACKLE.

SO, IT'S A LITTLE BIT LIKE AN

OFF-TACKLE HAND-OFF TO A

TAILBACK, ONLY THEY'RE DOING IT

WITH MICHAEL VICK AT

QUARTERBACK.

THEY PULL -- SEE, THEY PULL

MAX JEAN-GILLES, THE RIGHT

GUARD.

A DESIGNED DRAW AND DESIGNED RUN

BY MICHAEL VICK BUT AN

OFF-TACKLE RUN.

>> THAT'S TWO TOUCHDOWNS IN

TWO MINUTES AFTER THE ONSIDE

KICK BY AKERS, WHO MAKES IT A

7-POINT GAME.

>> ELI MANNING WILL LIKELY NEED

TO CONTINUE TO DO WHAT HE HAS

DONE AND BE PRETTY PRECISE

THROWING THE FOOTBALL.

>> LINE-DRIVE KICK BY AKERS, AND
