EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- We'll see what the Eagles can do in the bottom of the sixth. Right now, Donovan McNabb is doing a tremendous job of taking what the Giants are giving him. The checkdown to Brian Westbrook was the perfect play with the Giants in Cover 2.

And he's gaining a ton of confidence in Jason Avant. He's in a rhythm right now, and the Giants aren't getting close to him with a three-man rush. They brought a linebacker late on second-and-1 to help cause an incompletion. If the Eagles win this game, remember this drive. They've had the Giants on their heels from the first snap of the drive.

For the Giants, keep your eye on right tackle Kareem McKenzie's injury. He was really starting to take over in the running game.

Big, big drive to close the first 30 minutes of action. 10-8, Eagles at halftime.
