2009 Record: 8-8 (missed playoffs)
The Eagles have beaten the Giants four times in a row prior to 2010. The Giants' defense had some serious problems in 2009 stopping opponents' passing games.
Eli Manning had a big year, but his performance was overshadowed by the woes that the rest of the team had.
Matchups in the secondary
The Giants have added defensive backs Antrel Rolle and Deion Grant to help their pass defense. Aaron Ross is also returning from injury. However, the Eagles still have favorable matchups due to the plethora of receivers they have.
The pass defense
Although Eli Manning did have a good game in his last matchup against the Eagles, the three he had before that ranged from average to awful. I won't call that performance a fluke just yet, but the Eagles have gotten the better of Eli over the past two years.
The Giants' pass rush last year was a story of big names not playing the way we would expect them to. Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora still have the potential to return to a premier pass-rushing duo, and I'm not counting them out yet.
The Eagles have to keep Kolb on his feet; otherwise it won't matter that the Giants can't cover the Eagles' receivers.
Stopping the run
The Giants still have most of the components from their dominant running game from 2008, and they have recently added former Eagle and dominant run blocker Shawn Andrews.
The Eagles can't fall asleep on the Giants' running game unless it's obvious by this point in the season that the Giants have gotten away from running the football (by Week 15 we should have a pretty good idea).
