Eagles trying to put Giants away quickly

12/13/2009

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- I don't think Brandon Jacobs ever had a good grip on the ball before he fumbled. He had switched arms and then Eagles defensive end Trent Cole made contact from behind. The ball just sort of popped out on its own and Sheldon Brown was off to the races. It was a 60-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

Giants are on the move now but I don't like their chances in a track meet. The Eagles have the capacity to score a lot faster than the Giants. As we pointed out earlier, Hakeem Nicks is making his first professional start. You knew it would happen at some point this season. I'm not sure why it took so long. I think he's been more dependable than Marion Manningham for weeks now.
