Even though they’ll tell you the job isn’t done, the Philadelphia Eagles have accomplished a lot this season. Sure, the goals are higher than they were a year ago. Anything less than Super Bowl glory will probably be viewed as a disappointment, even if the argument can be made that the Birds should be proud of what they’ve done regardless of how things turn out.

Their head coach, Nick Sirianni, is one of the best leaders of men in the game, Their quarterback, Jalen Hurts, was asked to take the next step as a passer. He’s done that and then some, growing into a legitimate MVP candidate.

In Week 13, Philly embarks on something they haven’t done all season, a three-game road trip. The first step in their journey requires that they return to the scene of their most puzzling game of last year’s regular-season campaign, East Rutherford, New Jersey.

That one ended with a 13-7 loss to an inferior New York Giants team. Still, even in that defeat, positive signs were noticed, signs that continue to fuel this team, even now.

This Eagles team isn’t so shortsighted that they’d make more of this game than they need to, but they’re also a team that has proven time and time again that they have long memories. You can best believe that loss still doesn’t sit well with them. They’ve since beaten New York… Week 16 last season, but something tells us they circled this game anyway.

Here are a handful of bold predictions for The Eagles Week 14 game versus the Giants.

We expect a much better road performance from the Eagles in New Jersey this time around. Would we be wrong if we said that we expect them to dominate? It’s hard to imagine a scenario in which they again walk into this one lacking focus and leave MetLife Stadium with a loss.

The Eagles’ defense limits the Giants to 200 yards of offense or fewer.

The Giants have issues on offense, and that’s putting things mildly. They just aren’t a good enough offense to consistently challenge an Eagles defense that has been quite stingy versus units that are, in all honesty, better.

James Bradberry snags an interception.

Revenge games have gone well for the Eagles and their stars. This week, it’s James Bradberry‘s turn.

As good as he is, opposing quarterbacks more often than they attack Darius Slay. We expect New York to employ the same philosophy. It won’t work out for them either. Daniel Jones gift-wraps one to Bradberry in this one.

Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts combine for 300 yards of total offense.

The Giants haven’t stopped anyone from running the ball. Miles Sanders is enjoying the best season of his career. You see where this is headed, don’t you?

Expect a great day from him and more evidence from Jalen Hurts that he is, indeed the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.

Boston Scott reaches the end zone versus the Giants… again.

It wouldn’t be an Eagles game versus the Giants without our Giant Killer now, would it? Boston Scott will be a factor in this one, and he’ll sink the hearts of Big Blue’s fans… again.

The Philadelphia Eagles win this one by two scores.

We know that this is a rivalry game and that records don’t matter. We also know the Eagles are the superior team and that they should win this game. Often, Eagles/Giants games are close and low-scoring affairs, but New York simply doesn’t have enough to keep up.

We’ve been saying that Philadelphia will win by two scores all week. We’ve seen nothing that tells us we should change our opinion on that. Prediction: Eagles 31, Giants 16
