GIANTS RIVALRY NOT AS BIG AS COWBOYS, EAGLE LB RYANS SAYS!

By Harry Allison

Don’t tell Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans that the New York Giants, whom the Birds play Monday night at the Linc, are their biggest rival.

“We just treat this like our next game,” Ryans told NJ.com Wednesday.

“I know it’s a big game in our division, but I always felt like the Cowboys were a bigger rivalry. To me, I don’t know if it has the same feel as a game against the Cowboys, or not.”

Acquired by the Eagles in an offseason trade prior to the 2012 season, Ryans has faced the Giants five times, and has recorded 16 tackles.

His favorite moment in Eagles-Giants lore?

“For me, and I wasn’t even here yet, but when DeSean Jackson ran the punt back [in 2010]. That one always stands out. Just being on the outside looking in.”
