The Philadelphia Eagles have been playing a game where they let the loogie hang down and then slurp it up right before it hits their fans in the face.
This week, the New York Giants will be doing the same with the Eagles.
The Giants are everything the Eagles have seemed destined to be with their two Super Bowl titles. There is no doubt that Philly fans are absolutely beside themselves that it's been their division rival and not them.
New York is locked in right now. The Giants have young, unproven guys putting up crazy numbers because they're finally getting a shot. The Andre Browns have made more of an impact on the team than just their performance. They motivate starters, like Ahmad Bradshaw (who is determined to play this week), to stay on top of their game so they don't lose their starting spots.
The Eagles have been somewhat lucky to get the two wins they have. It will be another week, at least, until they add to that total.
I understand that the Giants are not the technically favored team. However, Vegas gives a home team three points just for hosting, therefore, New York can be considered for our purposes.
