Eagles knock off Giants, set up All-Bird NFC Title tilt

It was an awful day for the New York Giants.

The play-calling was questionable, Eli Manning was off, the usually reliable John Carney missed two field goals and the Eagles' defense smothered the defending Champs, 23-11. The Giants simply couldn't get any rhythm going on offense and the defense was even worse. Donovan McNabb and the Iggles were converting third downs at will.

Philadelphia's win sets up an Eagles-Cardinals NFC Championship Game in Arizona. Who would have thought two weeks ago that the Cards would be in the NFC title game, let alone hosting it? What a wacky season it's been.
