Manning throws two TDs, Jacobs runs for two as Giants send message
PHILADELPHIA -- If there was any doubt the New York Giants rule the NFC East, the Super Bowl champions erased it Sunday night.
• The Giants have won four straight games at Philly after losing the previous four games in the City of Brotherly Love.
• New York is 3-0 against its NFC East rivals, but has only one other win against an opponent with a winning record.
• Philly's Brian Westbrook was held to 59 total yards. He had at least 123 combined yards in six straight games against the Giants before Sunday.
