First team to 50 wins

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tom Coughlin knows he can't settle for field goals against Andy Reid's magical, mystical Wildcat machine. And that's why he elected to go for it on fourth-and-goal from the Eagles' 1-yard line. The Giants desperately need a defensive stand. A three-and-out would be huge, but it's hard to imagine as long as DeSean Jackson's on the field.

Giants right tackle Kareem McKenzie has a right knee sprain and he won't return. Will Beatty has replaced McKenzie and he did a nice job on that first drive of the half. Giants may want to think about covering Brent Celek. Just a thought.
