One Response to “Giants vs Eagles Week Four Capsule”

  1. Mike Ferrari says:

    In my liking, I hope the Giants beat the Eagles by a lot. Based on the Giants D-Line, I don’t think Michael Vick will be able to rush against them. Next against the G-Men secondary, they better step up to Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Also, you can’t forget Lesean McCoy. However, I still don’t think you can lose with J.P.P., OSI, and Justin Tuck. That is on the defense. On the offense, you have Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Eli, and a decent O-Line, how can you lose? I believe the Giants win the game by a score of 27-13. G-MEN SOON TO BE 3-1
