The Philadelphia Eagles defense will force multiple turnovers by the New York Giants’ offense.

The Philadelphia Eagles defense generated 27 takeaways during the regular season. Despite cooling some down the stretch. Ball hawks and skilled pass rushers worked in unison to tally 17 interceptions and ten recovered fumbles. Their lone turnover versus the Giants was a Week 14 fumble by Tyrod Taylor.

Though it hasn’t been as much of an issue this season, Daniel Jones has struggled with ball security historically. With 42 career fumbles during his four seasons and another 34 interceptions thrown, Philly’s defense could be given some gifts. They need to take advantage if they present themselves.

During the first meeting between these teams this season, Philadelphia’s explosive offensive helped manufacture a 24-7 halftime lead. In Week 18, the Birds orchestrated a 16-0 and were up by a 19-3 margin when they entered the fourth quarter.

The Eagles’ defense often shined its brightest when it mattered the most this year. They were impressive in primetime, generating 12 turnovers in five games with a start time past 8 PM EST

The Eagles’ defense is absolutely capable of forcing multiple turnovers by Daniel Jones. They’re loaded with experienced players along their defensive line and in their secondary. Most, if not all of the Giants’ offense lacks playoff experience.

Maybe James Bradberry can earn an added measure of revenge by hauling in an interception versus his former mates. Maybe Brandon Graham can create a huge play in what might wind up being one of his final games in Philadelphia. The style points don’t matter. How they get it done doesn’t matter, but we’re calling for two or more forced turnovers by Philly’s defense in this one.

light. Hot. Forgotten Eagles we hope surprise us in the postseason
