New York takes Giant steps in 08 Opener: defeats washington in NFL opener

You cant ask for a better NFL season opener than coming to East Rutherford and seeing NFC East rivals go head to head in four competitive quarters. Last night there were many questions coming into the game. A question that most Giants fans were asking themselves coming into last nights game was how will the Giants defence do the season without Strahan and Umenyora? That question was answered last night by none other than Michael Strahan's replacement, Justin Tuck. Even though Tuck had only one sack he still shut down Jason Campbell's play especially in the first quarter holding him 0/3 with zero yards. Another question that Giants fans were asking themselves is that f Eli would be able to play the quarterback position as he did in last years post season? That was also answered last night as Manning went 19/35 and had 216 yards with one touchdown pass and one interception.

 For a season opener i thought that the G-Men had played an all around amazing game. Whether it was watching Eli hand the ball off to Brandon Jacobs, or watch Aaron Ross nterept a pass rom Jason Campbell, i could not have asked for anything more. The only thing that i am left wondering with is where they are going to put that Super Bowl banner?
