Giants get away with one
By Matt Mosley
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It looked like Giants safety Aaron Rouse made significant contact with Eagles tight end Brent Celek well before the ball arrived in the end zone. No call was made and the Eagles were forced to settle for a 20-yard field goal and a 17-10 lead.
On the second down play, Michael Vick lined up wide and then took a pitch from quarterback Donovan McNabb before throwing an incomplete pass toward Reggie Brown. Rouse got a hand on the ball to knock it away. But again, do you really need to turn to a razzle dazzle play when you're on a team's 2-yard line?
Giants are very fortunate to only give up the field goal on that possession. First team to 35 wins this game.
