The Eagles enter Week 8 at 3-4 and are coming off a crushing loss against the Cowboys. Luckily, the best way to bounce back is against the lowly Giants. While this is by no means going to be easy, New York's lack of success is inspiring for an Eagles team that has not won a home game in the last nine tries.
Michael Vick is likely to start at quarterback for the Eagles and has been injured since the last Giants game. The Eagles won that game and hope to repeat history without an injury to Vick. With a hopefully-improved defense, the Eagles could make it a long night for New York.
