The New York Giants are looking to avoid going 0-5 in this game. Lucky for the Giants, nobody else in the division is running away with it yet. If they win against the Eagles on Sunday, then they already pass them in the standings. They have a lot of work to do though.
The Philadelphia Eagles surprised everyone with their performance to open the season and have not won since that game. The Eagles defense has played awful and the offense has not given them much time to rest on the sideline.
Eagles Player to Watch: LeSean McCoy
LeSean McCoy leads the league in running the football with an average of 117 yards per game. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly finds ways to get McCoy out in the open field and lets him use his athletic ability to make people miss.
Giants Player to Watch: Victor Cruz
Victor Cruz is 4th in the league in receiving yards with 425 yards. He has also collected 4 touchdowns this season. The Eagles defense has struggled to stop the pass, so Cruz could be open all game long. It will be up to Eli Manning to get that football out to him.
Matchup to Watch: Eli Manning vs Eagles Defense
Eli Manning has struggled turning the ball over this season. He has thrown nine interceptions already this season and has been sacked 14 times. He will be going up against a soft Eagles defense and can put up some big numbers, but he will have to make sure to take care of the football.
The Giants have to win at some point… right? This is finally their chance to get something in the win column. Eli Manning can bounce back and can gain some confidence against this Eagles defense. It will likely be another high scoring game. That is how the Eagles play.
Giants 35 – Eagles 28
