I'D GIVE the Eagles a puncher's chance at making the rest of their season relevant by pulling off a huge upset. That's what it would be, with the Giants rolling along so well.

Maybe you get a little more from Brian Westbrook, they get a little less from Brandon Jacobs, and Eagles fans can rejoice. I sure wouldn't bet on that happening. Not much bothers the Giants these days. The Eagles are a team that last week showed signs of finally starting to put it all together. The Giants are a team that has it all together.

I expect the Eagles' defense to do a better job than it did last month, but I really don't see the Birds scoring 31 points on the Giants again.

If I'm wrong, the stretch drive will get much more interesting.

Prediction: Giants 27, Eagles 21.
