    Here we are in Week 11 and there is only one, count it, one game pitting teams that both have winning records.

    That one game is Atlanta at the Giants in the first start for First Brother Eli Manning. He faces a Falcon defense that ranks second in the league in sacks. With defensive tackle Rod Coleman in the lineup, the Falcons have 26 sacks. In the three games he missed, they had one. Coleman will play against the rookie.
