A look at the lines: The New York Giants have scored 7 combined points over their last two games. They can’t run the football, they don’t try to run the football, Eli Manning can’t find his playmaking receivers, and can’t even stay upright. Their defense, for the lack of a better explanation, also completely sucks. So, naturally, the Giants are a one-point favorite and the game total is 53.5 points. That means Vegas has the Giants penciled in for a 27-26 win. Granted, the line has plummeted a 1.5 points in the Eagles’ favor over the past three days, but for a team that has been so God-awful, it’s amazing the Giants are favored. That speaks volumes to just how poor the Eagles defensive unit has been over the past last 3.5 games.
The thing you absolutely need to know: The opinion here is that the Eagles should be able to outpace what has simply been an abysmal Giants offense. The Eagles have won 8 of their last 11 at New York. The Eagles can move into first place with a win in New York and a Cowboys loss against Denver. The Giants are 2-8 over the past five seasons against the Eagles, but won the teams’ most recent matchup, a 42-7 demolition in what was Andy Reid’s final game as Eagles head coach.
