NFL Week 4: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles Preview and Prediction

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterSeptember 24, 2012

After Mike Vick's performance in the desert against the Arizona Cardinals coupled with the clinic put on by Eli Manning and the New York Giants in Carolina, it's easy to fall into the "the Giants should roll" trap when looking at this game.

I'm here to tell you that just won't be the case. 

Yes, NFC East teams love to beat up on each other, and you can bet this game won't be any different in that regard. The Eagles simply have to get the ball to LeSean McCoy—be it handing the ball off, getting him in space in the flat or working him downfield against a porous Giants secondary. 

For the Giants, the extra days between games should help them get healthy. It will be interesting to see what kinds of timeshares Andre Brown has in the Giants backfield and Ramses Barden has within the receiving corps. 

In the video above, we look at the key matchups and predict the outcome for this early NFC East showdown. Let us know in the comments below what you agree with, what you disagree with and give us your thoughts on the game.
