McNabb beating Giants with his legs, arm

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has been remarkably accurate in the first quarter. He's apparently solved some of those footwork issues that had plagued him the past couple of games.
And we just witnessed Michael Vick's first meaningful play of the regular season. On third-and-1 in the red zone, he took a snap out of the Wildcat formation and raced around right end for the first down. Also of interest, Stacy Andrews has taken over at right guard this drive. Andy Reid's just showing off at this point.
The Giants just held the Eagles to a field goal. Justin Tuck and Fred Robbins batted down passes on back-to-back plays. Maybe the Giants can build off this. Good line on NFL Nation Live that I noticed earlier: "The Giants should let Sabbathia play quarterback."
