The Eagles are developing a reputation as a slow-starting team, but they had plenty of firepower to overcome the Seahawks. Quarterback Donovan McNabb struggled early, missing on 10 of 13 passes.
Next week, the Eagles can't afford to be slow out of the gates against the New York Giants. The two teams will square off in an important NFC East game next Sunday. The Giants have set a goal to finish 6-0 in the division. The thought is that sweeping one of the best divisions in the league could make the Giants virtually unstoppable in the playoffs.
The Eagles will have home-field advantage Sunday, but the Giants take a lot of pride in performing well on the road. I think it will come down to whether Philadelphia can stop Brandon Jacobs and the running game. The Eagles have been solid against the run. The Redskins were the only team that gashed them on a consistent basis.
