New York went into Washington and left a 23-7 winner. ... Philadelphia snapped a three-game winless streak by crushing the Cardinals, 48-20, on Thanksgiving Day.

The Giants' issues: New York suspended star receiver Plaxico Burress four games for conduct detrimental to the team on Tuesday. Last weekend he accidentally shot himself at a New York nightclub and is facing weapons charges. LB Antonio Pierce was with Burress at the time and his role in the incident is under police investigation. How the team responds to this distraction will have a major impact on Sunday's game.

Which McNabb shows up: In the Eagles' six wins, QB Donovan McNabb has averaged 283 passing yards and has thrown 12 touchdowns with only three interceptions. In Philadelphia's five losses and a tie, McNabb has averaged just 222 passing yards and tossed six touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Who comes off the ball better: The Giants' offensive line is considered one of the best in the NFC, while the Eagles' offensive line has struggled with inconsistency. Both teams have stout defensive lines that are among the NFL's elite. The team that controls the line of scrimmage will likely be the team that wins -- as was the case in the first meeting earlier this year when the Giants' lines dominated.
