Willie McGinest was just saying, “Watch the slant, watch the slant,” as the Cardinals were driving with 3:30 to go in the first half. What happened?

On the next play, Warner found WR Larry Fitzgerald on the other side of the end zone for a touchdown.

CB Asante Samuel, who had an interception that set up the Eagles’ first-half touchdown — the only touchdown to that point — had to be administered an IV to replenish fluids at the start of the third quarter. He returned to the Eagles’ sideline after the Giants kicked a field goal early in the third quarter.
