Heading into last night's NFC East showdown, Pro Bowl defensive end Trent Cole labeled the matchup a "revenge game" for the Eagles. If so, the 59-28 stomping was probably the most frozen serving of revenge in Eagles history.
And yet, following the win, Cole was eager to turn the page to this week's critical first-place showdown against the New York Giants.
"We got the G-men coming," Cole said. "It's going to be like this game. It's going to be a big game. I think we're on a good pace right now and we have to stay on the gravy train."
At 6-3, the Eagles and Giants are tied atop the NFC East heading into the first of two regular season meetings. This time, the Giants will be the ones seeking revenge as they've lost the last four games, including playoffs, to the Eagles. So, working on a short week, the Eagles will have no time to let their lopsided victory get to their heads.
"We have a big challenge and (the Giants) are going to be fired up, especially after their last loss," said safety Quintin Mikell. "But we're going to be ready to go, I can tell you that."
As one of the veteran leaders on the team, Mikell is charged with making sure there's no letdown this week. Especially after the Eagles showed what they can do at their best.
"Once we're clicking on all cylinders and we're playing hard, playing how we're supposed to play, we can beat anybody," Mikell said.
