Staying with the run: The Eagles only averaged 2.1 yards per carry against the Giants, but Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg stayed with the run. The Eagles ran the ball 28 times. Can the Eagles stop the Cardinals' red-hot passing game?: The Eagles haven't given up a passing touchdown in the last five games. But Kurt Warner threw three of them in the Eagles' Thanksgiving night win over the Cardinals. Those touchdown-saving tackles: Cornerback Sheldon Brown made a touchdown-saving shoestring tackle on Brandon Jacobs at the tail end of a 24-yard run in the second quarter, and wide receiver Kevin Curtis saved a TD when he tripped up Giants defensive tackle Fred Robbins after he intercepted a pass early in the third quarter.

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.

The majority of the world believes that Brian Westbrook is the most dangerous player involved in the game Sunday, but he isn't. The first time these teams met, back in Week 10, the Giants beat the Eagles 36-31, and it wasn't even that close. The G-Men racked up 370 yards on offense to the Eagles' 255, and if it wasn't for settling for three John Carney field goals, the game could have been over a lot earlier than when the Eagles failed to convert on a 4th and 1. In that game Brandon Jacobs rushed for 126 yards and simply punished the Eagles' defense in route to two rushing touchdowns.

The Eagles thought they had forced the Giants to attempt a field goal when Eli Manning was called for an illegal forward pass on a third-and-10 play from the Eagles' 20 late in the third quarter. Manning had scrambled and his right foot appeared to be in the air when he threw a 17-yard pass to Kevin Boss. Coach Tom Coughlin challenged the call and it was reversed, giving the Giants a first-and-goal at the 3-yard line. Two plays later, Brandon Jacobs scored a touchdown to give New York a 27-24 lead.

The formidable three-headed monster known as the running game of the New York Giants consists of a guy with power, a guy with speed, and a guy with a little of both. Tomorrow night at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles will come face to face with the NFL's No. 2 rushing attack. "The bottom line is only one of them can run the ball at a time, so whichever one is back there, that's the one we're prepared for," linebacker Omar Gaither said yesterday. The roster of Giants running backs is led by Brandon Jacobs, a 6-foot-4, 264-pound load and the league's fifth-leading rusher with 680 yards.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Jason Pierre-Paul blocked a 47-yard field-goal attempt by rookie Dan Bailey to let the New York Giants survive, 37-34, against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Dallas had appeared to tie the game with a successful 47-yarder as time expired, but New York had called a timeout. The move worked, preserving a lead Eli Manning had created in the final minute, ending New York's four-game losing streak. The Giants scored two touchdowns in the final 3 minutes, 14 seconds in a showdown for first place in the NFC East.

Even before his release from prison yesterday, the questions about Plaxico Burress' football future had been emerging for weeks. Various reports had the Eagles being interested in Burress, although nothing can happen until the labor imapasse is resolved. Burress' former New York Giants teammate, Brandon Jacobs, said Burress wanted to play for the Eagles. There was the connection between Burress and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, both in their backgrounds and their attempts to resurrect their NFL careers after prison.

WHAT IT WAS: The pair of Aaron Ross interceptions WHERE AND WHEN: On third-and-6 for the Eagles from the Giants' 19 at 8 minutes, 59 seconds in the first quarter, and first-and-10 from the Eagles' 20 at 8:07 in the fourth. THE BREAKDOWN: Ross' first interception arrived after a nice play by Michael Vick to elude a linebacker blitz. However, Vick's sidearm pass intended for former Giants wideout Steve Smith got snagged by Ross at his own 8-yard line and returned 19 yards to the 27. His second came courtesy of a deep ball intended for DeSean Jackson from backup Mike Kafka.

THE EAGLES listed quarterback Michael Vick as "probable" for tomorrow's game against the Giants, which presumably means he is starting, as the Birds try to end a nine-game home losing streak. Vick had said Thursday he wanted to run hard yesterday to make sure his left hamstring could stand the strain. Reporters are not allowed at NovaCare on Fridays, but the run presumably went well. He suffered the injury in the previous game against the Giants, Oct. 7. As expected, the team listed quarterback Nick Foles as "out.

Les Bowen In my mind, this game is more about the Giants than about the Eagles. I think I have a decent idea of what the Eagles can do. Good defense, OK offense that could use a healthier Brian Westbrook, an offense that could do a better job of blocking for him most games. Capable, on the right day, of beating anybody, in an NFL that lacks a truly scary, dynasty-level team. But if the NFL has anything close to a truly scary, dynasty-level team, that team would be the Giants.

WITH SOUTHERN High in need of a touchdown in overtime, junior running back Casey Williams broke the huddle with a confident bop, but also with a nagging thought in the back of his head. At 6-2 and 220 pounds, Williams is a big target for would-be tacklers. But, when he lowers his shoulders and explodes, he runs with a powerful abandon that leaves onlookers feeling sympathetic toward defenders. So, after he fired through the line of scrimmage and chugged for the game-tying, 10-yard score against Abraham Lincoln High in overtime yesterday, the sideline official's quip said it all: "I wouldn't step in front of that, either.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - As Bill Davis sifted through the rubble of his team's 52-20 loss to Peyton Manning and the Broncos last week, nothing frustrated the beleaguered Eagles defensive coordinator more about his unit's pathetic effort than the fact that it failed to force a turnover for the second straight week. "We have to be a turnover team," he said. "Our turnovers are not high enough right now. We've got to work on that. "The defense has to increase its production for the team to succeed.

Mark Sanchez wants to stay right where he is. So does Darrelle Revis. The two players are among the New York Jets' biggest uncertainties heading into next season. Sanchez is coming off a miserable year and Revis is recovering from a serious knee injury while also having a sticky contract situation. "Until I'm told differently, I'm a Jet," Sanchez said Monday as the Jets cleaned out their lockers. "That's what I always thought would happen. I don't see anything different. I just want another crack at this thing.

TRENTON - Two state troopers, charged Friday with records tampering, turned a state highway into a "virtual speedway" in March when they gave a caravan of luxury cars a high-speed escort while taping over their own license plates to conceal their involvement, the state attorney general said. "No one is above the law," Jeffrey Chiesa said. "We will not tolerate officers who endanger the public they are sworn to protect. " Administrative charges also were brought against four other members of the state police in connection with a similar high-speed escort of luxury cars in 2010, and a fifth trooper for his handling of a ticket issued to the driver of a Lamborghini clocked at 116 m.p.h., also in 2010.

REMEMBER the good old days when you could hate Brandon Jacobs? Times have changed. On Wednesday, the former New York Giant running back, now with the 49ers, made a 6-year-old boy's day. Jacbos got together with Joseph Armento, the kid who sent him a fan letter and $3.36 in the hopes the money would help him remain in New York. Jacobs gave Armento an interest-laden $5 and a signed Giants helment. What happened next was even more special. Jacobs and his 5-year-old son hung out with Armento and his 4-year-old brother for several hours at the Jump On In bounce house in Boonton, N.J. How cool is that?

New Jersey State Police are investigating allegations that two state troopers ushered a high-speed parade of luxury sports cars - including one reportedly driven by former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs - as they recklessly tore down the Garden State Parkway to Atlantic City in March. Early the afternoon of March 30, witnesses reportedly saw two patrol cars, lights on, speeding down the Parkway with a pack of more than two dozen cars including Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Porsches, the Newark Star-Ledger reported Sunday.

THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ers added another member of last season's Super Bowl-champion New York Giants on Wednesday, agreeing to terms with veteran running back Brandon Jacobs on a 1-year contract. Jacobs was released March 9 by the Giants after he failed to reach agreement on a restructured deal. He is expected to play behind Frank Gore and could share the backup role with second-year pro Kendall Hunter. Jacobs spent seven seasons with New York, winning two Super Bowls and beating the 49ers, 20-17, in overtime of the NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park on Jan. 22. The 29-year-old Jacobs ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season as a backup to Ahmad Bradshaw.

DENVER - With TV cameras tracking the airplane, then the silver SUV, that carried Peyton Manning to Denver Broncos headquarters Friday, the league's only four-time MVP opened his free-agency tour of NFL suitors. About 48 hours after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, Manning met with another Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway, and coach John Fox. The three chatted while taking a tour of the team's practice field and heading to the weight room.

NEW YORK GIANTS running back Brandon Jacobs apologized last night for telling reporters Tuesday that Gisele Bundchen should "stay cute and shut up. " Jacobs, speaking on ESPN's The Doug Gottlieb Show, said he should respect Tom Brady's wife. "Given the fact that it's a colleague of mine's wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn't have said that," Jacobs said yesterday. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else. " Jacobs, however, stood by his comments on Bundchen's appearance, again calling her "cute.
