The Philadelphia Eagles offense had its way with the New York Giants defense in the first half of tonight's featured NFL game and Mike Vick even got into the act.

The Eagles took a 30-17 lead into the locker room, though the margin could have been much closer if the Giants' defenders had been more aware and picked up a McNabb fumble which initially appeared to be an incomplete pass with the score 24-17.

Mike Vick got in on the action, as well, completing a 32-yard strike to DeSean Jackson to put the Eagles in close touchdown range and scoring on a later drive with a five-yard quarterback keeper around the left end.

McNabb was also sharp in the first half, completing 9-of-15 for 142 yards and a score.

Look for Eli Manning and the Giants to put pressure on the Eagles defense in the second half, but also expect Mike Vick to continue getting touches out of the Wildcat formation as we get closer to the NFL Playoffs where No.7 could play a big roll for an increasingly dangerous Philadelphia team.
