 Plaxico Burress of the NY GiantsThe New York football Giants look for their fourth straight win after losing the first two games of the season when they visit the injury-filled Falcons on Monday night.

Last week the Giants rallied back from being down ten-points to defeat the Jets 35-24. Eli Manning threw 186 yards and two touchdown passes to Jeremy Shockey and Plaxico Burress.

Brandon Jacobs carried the rock 20 times for 100 yards, reaching that mark for the first time in his career.

The Falcons lost last Sunday 20-13 to the Tennessee Titans. Joey Harrington passed for just 87 yards in that game before being replaced by Byron Leftwich in the 4th quarter. Harrington is still expected the get the start tonight.
