In the end, this is probably about as predictable as could be. In a game the New York Giants should win -- in fact, need to win -- when all of the advantages appear stacked in their favor they play a stinker of a first half.

Philadelphia Eagles 10, Giants 3 at halftime.

The Giants have all of 86 yards of total offense after two quarters, most of it on the final drive for a 48-yard Lawrence Tynes' field goal. Victor Cruz has a drop. Hakeem Nicks has a drop. Jake Ballard is in the process of undoing a lot of the good he has done this season with two awful drops. The Giants have all of 19 yards rushing, and Eli Manning is getting punished when he tries to throw.

The Giants gave up a touchdown catch by ex-Giant Steve Smith and almost gave up a punt return touchdown to DeSean Jackson, neither of whom has done anything against anyone else this season.

Let's hope things improve in the second half.
