They were ahead 31-21 when Michael Vick took a big hit and crashed into his own player's helmet. It looked pretty bad and Vick suffered a concussion, so Mike Kafka trotted out for his first NFL action.
He actually played better than anyone could have expected, but it wasn't enough as the Falcons scored 14 unanswered, and Jeremy Maclin dropped a fourth down pass in the final minutes to seal the deal.
On the flip side, the Giants have looked like anything but a talented football team, despite beating the Rams this Monday. In essence, the Giants got pretty lucky that the Rams beat themselves, but at the same time the Giants did capitalize on those mistakes so they deserve some credit.
Still, the offense has been a huge issue thus far, and with the electrifying Eagles offense the Giants will struggle to keep up on the scoreboard.
Not to mention how awful the secondary has been; DeSean Jackson and Maclin are licking their chops to get a piece of Aaron Ross.
So, while I give the Giants little chance to pull off the upset, there are ways they can win the game.
