New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Watch Live Stream Online for Free; Preview
Two NFC East rivals go head-to-head on Sunday night as the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The game will be broadcast live on NBC at 8:20 p.m. ET, and you can also watch a live stream online for free here.
The Eagles are coming off of a 27-6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in which quarterback Michael Vick didn't throw an interception, but was sacked five times. The up-and-coming Arizona defense also forced three turnovers, including two recovered fumbles off of Vick sacks. It also held Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to just 70 yards on 13 carries.
In the last three games, Vick and the Eagles have produced a league-high 12 turnovers, three more than any other team. Vick has been the main cause of those turnovers, having thrown six interceptions to tie for the league's highest total along with three lost fumbles.
A turnover-prone Vick may lessen the Eagles chances of winning against a relentless Giants pass rush, but having a banged-up offensive line might make things worse. Tackle Jason Peters is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles and his replacement, King Dunlap, sat out last week's game due to a hamstring problem.
The Giants, meanwhile, are coming off of a 36-7 rout of the Carolina Panthers, the defense having held Carolina to just seven points and forcing five turnovers. They also more than doubled the production of the Panthers running attack 125 to 60 thanks to the emergence of backup Andre Brown, who gained a career-high 113 yards and scored twice in his first NFL start in place of regular starter Ahmad Bradshaw. Nevertheless, coach Tom Coughlin said Bradshaw will start against the Eagles.
Manning completed 27 of 35 passes for 288 yards, bringing his total passing yards to 1,011, the most in the NFL. However, the two-time Super Bowl MVP won't have one of his best targets, Hakeem Nicks, who caught 14 passes for 237 yards in the first two games, but will miss a second straight contest because of both foot and knee injuries. As a result, Ramses Barden, who had career bests of nine catches and 138 yards last week, could get another start, while Domenik Hixon could also start.
Defensively, the Giants secondary remains suspect as cornerback Corey Webster will most likely play with a cast on his broken right hand and safety Antrel Rolle has been limited since hurting his knee last week.
The Giants have lost six of their last seven meetings with the Eagles.
