When you’re thirsty and walking through the desert, the smallest bit of water looks like a Big Gulp.

Such is the Sunday night game between the Eagles and Giants, which Philly leads 7-3 at the break. Despite the fact there have been no turnovers and no sacks (although there’s a lot of pressure on both quarterbacks), offensive flow has been at a minimum.

The Eagles struck first when Michael Vick found DeSean Jackson, snapping a streak of 15 straight possessions without a touchdown.

Eli Manning drove the Giants for a field goal just before the half, the first sign of life they’ve shown.

With the passers getting into some degree of groove, it sets up for a classic second half, and we’d say that even if we didn’t work for NBC.
