Boston Scott WILL find the endzone against the Giants once again.

The Giant Killer, Boston Scott, will forever occupy a space in the hearts of Eagles fans, regardless of what a certain defensive coordinator may believe. He has scored ten touchdowns during eight career games versus the G-Men and has a massive opportunity to build on his reputation during the Divisional Round if he is given an opportunity.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change, but at last glance, FanDuel gives Scott odds of +350 as an anytime touchdown scorer. Keep in mind the fact that Miles Sanders, the starter, is expected to get the lion’s share of the carries.

No one would blame you if you expressed the belief that Scott will find the endzone again this weekend. This would also bode well for the Birds. They are 6-1 in the seven games versus the Giants in which Scott has found the endzone. Boston scored TDs in both games versus New York this season.

In terms of matchups, featuring Scott more gives the Eagles an edge if they are to advance to the NFC Championship and beyond. This keeps Miles Sanders fresh. If the San Fransisco 49ers travel to Philadelphia for the NFC Championship Game, the Eagles would be tasked with conquering the second-ranked rushing defense, one that allowed 77.7 rushing yards per game. If the Dallas Cowboys are the opponent, the chances of success improve. To make long stories shorter, the Eagles’ rushing attack must be on its A-game.
