Answers for Giants & Atlanta

N.Y. Giants at Atlanta 1:00 p.m.

The Gints scored 27, and as expected, the Falcons were not able to keep up.  Eli had two TDs, and Tiki rushed for 189 yards.  (But still no TD!!!!)

Down 27-13 early in the 4th, Atlanta was forced to pass and could not get the ball into the endzone.

The Falcons are ill-equipped to comeback with their passing game with a poorly-throwing QB and low-quality receivers.  That is a chicken-and-egg situation but a situation nonetheless.

Does anyone know who Vick could successfully throw the ball to if he had to come back from two scores down in the 4th quarter?  No Atlanta receiver has more than eleven receptions through four games.  Not one is averaging more than 40 yards per game.

The biggest question for the Falcons is whether they can prevent the Giants from scoring 20+.  If they can, then the fact they have no semblance of a professional passing game may be moot.

And in this game, no WR caught more than three balls, and no WR had more than 30 yards.
