Of this season this should be one of the most intense matchups. Both these teams had a very tough battle when they have already met up once. With a 27-17 victory in their last matchup, the Eagles managed to come out on top.
The total for the game currently is sitting at 46 whereas in NFL Odds the New York Giants are the 2.5 point favorites.
After losing to the Eagles, the Giants have now won three games in a row and are tied for the division lead. By keeping Michael Vick in the pocket, the Giants did a great job in their last matchup. These game plans should be continued that the Giants need to make sure. Vick is all the more dangerous when he gets into the open field even as he does have a 104 quarterback rating.
By capitalizing on the Giants’ emphasis on containing Vick, the Eagles managed to pull it out last time. In order to seal the victory in the late stages of the game, McCoy managed to break free for a couple of long runs. This week, they will need McCoy to step up again.
As the Giants are just 17th in the league in pass defense they could have a chance to take advantage of the Eagles in the secondary. They should have a great chance to win with the way their running game has been recently if they can get their pass offense going.
