Did you know?

With one INT Brian Dawkins will be tied for the all time franchise record. With one catch, Brian Westbrook will move into third place all time in that category.

The Bottom Line

Like I said to the Times, this game will tell us a lot of about the Eagles. More than it will tell us about the Giants in fact. The Giants are already considered the class of the NFC and the odds on favorite to win it. Beating the Eagles tonight won't change that. A win for the Eagles however, puts them in the national mindset as a real contender. A win tonight would put the Eagles in the discussion as one of the top 5 teams in the NFL and put them in good position to win the NFC East. A loss would relegate them to that muddled middle of NFC teams all scrapping and hoping for help in a wildcard bid.

Tonight is a statement game. Let's hope the right statement is made.
