Tonight's game

Philadelphia (2-2) at N.Y. Giants (3-2)

Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7.

Line: Giants by 3.

Ken Murray's outlook: This has been a bad matchup for the Eagles of late. Giants coach Jim Fassel is 9-0 vs. Philadelphia, including a 20-10 divisional playoff win last season. Giants QB Kerry Collins hasn't thrown an interception in five career games against the Eagles. Contrast that to Eagles QB Donovan McNabb, who was held to a 46.7 completion percentage with two interceptions in three losses last season. Giants DE Michael Strahan is on a tear with 8.5 sacks in his last three games and will face RT Jon Runyan.
