Predictions for Eagles vs. Giants
6 November 2016 Eagles News
Today, the Eagles travel to New York to take on the Giants. It is a clash of two 4-3 teams, trying to stay alive in the NFC East. The Giants are coming off of a bye week, looking to build off of a win versus the Los Angelas Rams in London. For our Eagles, they are looking to bounce back after the devasting loss versus the Cowboys. Can they do it versus the Giants?
Here are our thoughts and predictions.
The Eagles get back to their defensive ways, with Eli playing the role of sitting duck. The Giants resemble the Vikings, with a poor rushing attack,putting Eli in predictable passing situations with a porous Oline. The Eagles pass rush will be the difference maker in this one.
Final Score: Eagles 28-14
The Giants have a shaky offensive line and the Eagles have preyed on teams hurting up front. They held their own against the Dallas line and that speaks volumes. Leaning on the defense is wearing on them, and the offense has to produce substantially to get this road win and avoid going 0-3 in the NFC East.
Final Score: Eagles 24-20
I think this one will be very close. I don’t think the Eagles’ offense will be much improved, but the offensive line should hold enough for Carson Wentz to do his job. They’ll find the way to add points in most of their drives, even if they have to settle for three points instead of seven. The Giants are a solid team, but their offensive line will have issues containing the pass rush. Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and Connor Barwin should create all kind of problems against a not so agile line, which will lead the Giants to more punts than scores.
Final Score: Eagles 26-24
Heading into this game the Eagles have won four straight against the Giants and Eli Manning is 1-8 at home against the Eagles. Although I don’t think Doug will let Wentz air it out, I think the Eagles offense won’t make the same mistakes and continue to grow. Along with that, I believe Doug will learn from his mistakes from last week and have a better-coached game. The defense will play well and contain Eli well enough to win the game. I believe it’ll be closer than what people think, but I think the Eagles will be able to pull out the win in today’s game.
Final Score: Eagles 24-14
There are a lot of interesting matchups in this game. The Giants WR corps has a lot of talent,while the Eagles CBs are arguably the weakest link on the team outside of WR. The Giants are unable to establish any sort of run game and I don’t see that changing despite the absence of Bennie Logan. The Giants secondary is capable of making plays as they did two weeks ago against a mediocre Case Keenum, intercepting him a whopping four times, including one that was returned for a touchdown. The other side of those four interceptions is that it took every one of them to keep the Giants in the game, including one in the red zone that ultimately sealed a New York win in the waning seconds. Outside of a talented WR corps, there is nothing about this Giants team that I fear, but they can hit on big plays which might be enough to keep them in the game. I trust Doug Pederson has learned from his play calling mistakes whether he wants to admit it or not. Expect two Eli Manning turnovers that propel the Birds to a victory.
Final Score: Eagles 23-17
Being an NFC East game, you would think it would be a close one. However, there is a tendency for these games to be pretty one sided. With that being said, I think the Eagles will run the show at Metlife Stadium. Coming off of a devasting overtime loss, the Eagles will be ready to go prove themselves. The offense will get back on track versus an average Giants defense. As for the Eagles defense, they will have another dominant game. Look for Carson Wentz to put on a show.
Final Score: Eagles 28-7
