1. Are the Philadelphia Eagles ready for a Jason Garrett-led offense?

The Giants, under new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, are trying their best to do some sort of ‘Air Coryell’ impersonation, one that leans pass-heavy and incorporates a solid running scheme. They’ve modernized it to some extent, but the timing and rhythm concepts are familiar. Wide receivers motion a lot so defensive backs can’t jam them at the line of scrimmage, and there always seems to be four or five receivers running various routes.

The Giants are still trying to figure out the kinks with second-year quarterback Daniel Jones, but many of their struggles revolve around the fact that they don’t have dependable offensive personal, which for the ‘G Men’ has become one of the stories of the past few seasons.

Though Jones has shown some promise at times, New York’s offensive line might be in worse shape than the Eagles’. New York is also without star running back Saquon Barkley, wide receiver Sterling Shepard, and thanks to an injury sustained in Week 6, they could possibly be without wide receiver Darius Slayton. New York has still been able to put points on the board, but it has often been a struggle.

Jones has shown that he can make plays with his legs, rushing for over 200 yards, but that hasn’t been enough to keep the Giants offensively competitive in their games. How will the Eagles defense match up? Advantage: Eagles
