of the game i played in 20 years ago or so. they pounded the ball well, ran the voobl hard, demarco murray had his best night. after the birds spotted new york a touchdown early on, sam bradford then hit riley cooper for the equalizer here. and then the eagles defense, they took over played magnificent game, the eagles defense did. carroll scoring on the pick 6. murray as i said swept on the right side for the touchdown to put the game out of reach. the birds dispose of the giants 27-7. >> going into this they'd only given up short amount of sacks and turned the ball over not very much either so for us to come up with the pick was big. >> they did a good job, they started getting pressure, we didn't run the ball as well and got us off the field on third downs. >> three on the season but the
birds head to -- the birds zriktry gives them the division lead in this match-up. demeco ryans was having his best performance early in the game but he left with a hamstring injury, we'll be monitoring that and keep an eye on him through practice this week. vai sikahema, nbc 10. >> for eagles fans the victory even sweeter by the tribute to a hero from the past, brian westbrook. during halftime they inducted him in the hall of fame. he wore his 36. some birds fans did the same. he is the all-time leader in yard from scrimmage. he helped the birds win a bunch of titles and a trip to the super bowl. westbrook told our john clark that he's tried his best every game he plays. >> every time i touch the field i try to play with that same type of emotion that the fans have. they bring it every week whether
