Bye Week Teams: New York Giants, Houston Texans
Quarterback Donovan McNabb threw for his 200th touchdown pass and surpassed the 30,000 yard mark as the Philadelphia Eagles went on to defeat the Washington Redskins 27-17 Monday night. The win for Philly was a definite step in the right direction after being stunned last week against the Oakland Raiders.
DeSean Jackson racked up two TD’s in the first half from a 67-yard run and a 57-yard reception that followed. “I was out there having fun, man, honestly,” said Jackson. “My ankle was kind of hurting. I really didn’t feel it, but it did kind of affect my dance a little bit. I could put it to perfection a little bit better than that.”
The Redskins can only look ahead now to their match up with the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday. “You have to take the bitter with the sweet,” said running back Rock Cartwright. “And right now we’re at a bitter moment.”
Philadelphia is just one game behind the New York Giants in the NFC East standings. The two teams will meet on Sunday, November 11th at 1:00 PM.
Rookie Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has not started out exactly how he envisioned. For his first two NFL starts he threw five interceptions, tying Carolina Panthers Jake Delhomme for most in the league. The 0-2 Lions have completed just one passing TD so far this season.
Coach Jim Schwartz remains optimistic about their situation and with no hesitation has decided to stick with his young quarterback. “I’m not going to put ourselves past this week when it comes to that. I have a lot of confidence in Matt’s ability, not only as a player, but his ability to lead this team and his ability to help us win,” said Schwartz. “I think he’s going to be our quarterback, he is our quarterback, and we’re all going to be very happy with him as a quarterback.”
The 2008 0-16 Lions selected Stafford in the draft over Mark Sanchez, who is currently 2-0 with the New York Jets and assuming the starting QB role quite well. Detroit fans can see light in the issue through past players and organizations. Peyton Manning threw six interceptions and two TD’s in his first two weeks with the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. Cowboys legend Troy Aikman got picked four times and threw one TD to start. Stafford is still very young and has a lot to look forward to in the NFL. No one said it would be easy, but there is still hope for the Detroit Lions. They will next square off against the Washington Redskins this Sunday at 1:00 pm.

After Sunday’s convincing win over the Dallas Cowboys the New York Giants stand alone in first place in the NFC East. The 35-14 victory put the Giants at 7-1 on the year. The Redskins’ loss on Monday night put Washington 2 games behind in the loss column. The Giants are by no means in the clear for winning the division however. They have four NFC East matchups remaining in the 2nd half of the year. They will play the Eagles twice and the Redskins and Cowboys once more. While many expected the Giants to get back to the playoffs this year, few expected them to stand at 7-1 at the midway point.
The Giants have won with both offense and defense. They have the most points for in the NFC East with 226 while giving up the fewest points against with 129.
The Giants will be at Philadelphia on 11/9 to play the Eagles.
New York Giants tickets are available for all remaining games.
Despite losing key pieces to their dominant defense in Michael Strahan (retirement) and Osi Umenyiora (injury) the New York Giants defense was on point against the Washington Redskins on opening night. The Giants held the Redskins to just 7 points and 209 total yards. Washington’s offense was only 3 for 13 on 3rd down conversions giving punter Durant Brooks a nice workout.
The Giants did all of their offensive damage in the 1st half, scoring a touchdown on their opening drive adding 3 field goals on their next 3 possessions. Plaxico Burress who had just signed an improved contract with the Giants had a great receiving night with 10 receptions good for 133 total yards.
