Early word from the Giants

The Giants, who had the bye week and have homefield throughout the NFC playoffs, were able to sit back and watch the Eagles play the Vikings. Eli Manning and Justin Tuck were the first players to weigh in, thanks to the Giants media relations staff ...

Eli Manning:
"The Eagles are a very good football team that has done a tremendous job of battling back during the latter part of the season. Obviously, we had two very tough regular-season games against them. Last week was good for us. We got some good work in during those two practices, but it's good that we now know who we are playing. We are excited to get to work this week. We need a good week of practice and preparation because it's about execution at this time of year, especially against a team we face twice a year in games that always seem to come down to the fourth quarter."

Justin Tuck:
"I think the Eagles are the hottest team in the NFL right now. They may be the sixth seed, but they sure aren't playing like it. We know them well, which is a good thing, but they know us well, too. I'm glad this game is going to be at home because I know our fans will be into it. It's going to be the tough NFC East battle you'd expect, and we are really looking forward to it."

The Giants will open as a four-point favorite, according to Daily News handicapper Vegas Vic.
