Michael Vick interception helps Giants grab early lead

The Giants can’t lose on Sunday if they want to make the playoffs and their chances of winning are off to a good start.

Eli Manning hit Rueben Randle with a three-yard touchdown pass a few plays after the first Eagles possession of the game ended with a familiar sight. Michael Vick was intercepted while throwing a pass under pressure as the Giants sent six men through the line to hurry Vick into a poor throw over the middle. Safety Stevie Brown picked it off, his NFL lead-tying eighth of the season, and returned it deep into Eagles territory.

Vick’s pick came just after the Eagles pulled off a successful onside kick on the opening kickoff of the game. Andy Reid, who might be coaching his final game for the Eagles, won his gamble when the ball caromed off Justin Tryon of the Giants into the waiting hands of Brandon Hughes. That good turn was followed by another reminder of how wrong everything’s gone over the last two years, though, and the Giants lead 7-0 with less than five minutes gone in the game.

    it’s entirely possible that the Vikings, Bears, and Cowboys all lose today to the Packers, Lions, and Redskins.

    Dude if Billick doesn’t stop shlonging on the Giants’ johnson, I’m going to lose it. No, they are not impressive. We just suck.

    Andy Reid deserves this beatdown with that onside kick garbage.
