MANHATTAN — The Giants beat the Eagles "Dream Team" Sunday in Philadelphia after quarterback Michael Vick got injured in the third quarter.

Eagles star quarterback Vick took himself out of the game in the fourth quarter after breaking his non-throwing hand during a third quarter sack. The Giants then pulled away, with Eli Manning throwing two touchdown passes in the third quarter.

"Yeah, we definitely shut them up. There is no question about that," said Giants running back Brandon Jacobs after the game. "We walked off the field as winners, by a nice margin."

Manning threw for 254 yards, with four touchdown passes. The Giants are now 2-1 while the Eagles dropped to 1-2 and last place in the division.

Things are tense for the team as they wait to see if Vick will be able to play next week.

"I don't know anything right now except my hand is broken," Vick said.

The win was an emotional boost for the Giants after losing a heartbreaking game to the Eagles last December after blowing a 21-point lead with 8:17 left in the game.

"It's always good to beat those guys, especially here," Manning said. "They have good players and we knew we had to come in with the same game plan as last year and just finish it this time."
