New York Daily News exposes the Eagles' tasteless organization -
The New York Daily News has long been a beacon of journalistic integrity, mixing news with opinion in the most delicate, dignified manner possible. They are the moral compass not just for the great city of New York, but of the entire country, and dare I say... Earth? So when they speak, you can bet your bottom I listen, ladies and gentlemen.

Not So Big Giants - Iggles Blitz
I’ve waited a long time and I have to say it feels great to finally get one. The defense played 60 good minutes. Bill Davis put together a terrific plan and the players executed it brilliantly. The Eagles played their base defense early on even when the Giants had 3 WRs on the field. This basically dared the Giants to throw the ball. They did and the pass rush was able to get home.

Instant Observations: Eagles 27, Giants 0 - Birds 24/7
The Eagles shut down the Giants' ground game. Andre Williams carried 16 times for 58 yards. Ryans, Casey Matthews and Fletcher Cox were among those who made nice plays against the run. Cox and Matthews had five tackles apiece.

LeSean McCoy enjoys a revival - Daily News
The NFL is a week-to-week league, and this was LeSean McCoy’s week. This was the game where all of the worries were swallowed up by the roar of the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field, where all of the consternation evaporated into the crisp fall night. There was no talk of lingering injuries or a stitched-together offensive line, not this night. Instead, against the New York Giants, all of the concern was replaced by the pretty unanimous observation that McCoy and the Eagles’ running game looked like themselves again.

10 observations from Eagles-Giants - CSN Philly
It used to really annoy Jim Johnson that he never coached a shutout during his 10 years with the Eagles. There were 30 games during that span from 1999 through 2008 where the Eagles didn’t allow an offensive touchdown and three in which the defense didn’t allow a point. This was the Eagles’ first shutout in 18 years, since Dec. 1, 1996, when the Eagles beat the Giants, 24-0, at the Vet. Ray Farmer — now the Browns’ general manager — had a sack and interception that day, William Fuller had two sacks, and the Eagles held the Giants to just 121 yards. This was just as dominating a performance. Jim would have been proud of Billy Davis.

60 Minutes Of Domination For Eagles -
The Men In Black stepped into the prime-time spotlight on Sunday night and delivered a marquee performance, a statement game and a blowout win, 27-0 over the New York Giants to move to 5-1 heading into a much-needed bye week. It was a remarkable 60 minutes on #BlackSunday at Lincoln Financial Field …

Watch: Female Eagles fan steals singing veteran's prosthetic leg - The 700 Level
The beating the Philadelphia Eagles put on the New York Giants on Sunday night was totally legal. The snatch and grab by a young lady in Eagles' gear earlier in the night was not. Perhaps the worst part about this story -- aside from a man missing his leg -- is that Jim Gardner didn't get to lead Action News with it.

Owners want Roger Goodell role modified - ESPN
One concept that emerged from the league meetings Wednesday is that several owners want Roger Goodell's role to be modified so that the commissioner would not decide on the initial player punishment, a source said.

Washington owner sitting with president of Navajo Nation - SB Nation
At the team's game against the Arizona Cardinals in Arizona, Washington owner Daniel Snyder was spotted on Fox sitting with Ben Shelly, the president of the Navajo Nation. Snyder has been under fire from many because of the racial connotations of the team's name.
