Philadelphia Eagles to Continue Their Winning Streak?
The Eagles are just coming off their bye week, and they will be looking to extend their lead in the NFC East from two to three games with Sunday's win over New York. Philadelphia is already on a two-game winning streak with the team getting better and has a chance to make a mini-run here. For this contest, Dallas Goedert and Alshon Jeffery should be back, and that gives a much-needed lift to the offense of the floundering Eagles.
After being one of the worst quarterbacks for the first five weeks of the season, Carson Wentz has done significantly better lately. 61 of 110 passes for 695 yards have been completed by Wentz since week 5, with 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He had three scores on the ground during that time, as well. But with 12 in this season, Carson still leads the league in interceptions and has turned the ball over the most of any QB in the league by far.
So far this year, Travis Fulgham has been the Eagle's best offensive player. With 435 yards in five games, he leads the team in catches by a wide margin and leads the team in touchdowns with 4.
Philadelphia, as a team, scores 23.3 points on offense per game and is one of the few teams in the league to reach 30 points in a game this season. The Eagles have been solid this season defensively and rank in the top 20 in the league for points allowed per game. Philadelphia has allowed 25.6 points on defense per game, which gives them the NFL's 18th best rating.
Will The Giant's Build Momentum by Stealing a Win?
New York brought down the Washington football team by a margin of 23-20 their last night out. Surprisingly, at 2-7, the Giants are still in the thick of the NFC East race, as they are only two games behind the Eagles for the top spot in the East. Winning on Sunday will really improve their chances of reaching the playoffs.
After his rookie season, Daniel Jones has not really shown any signs of improvement, and this season has also been worse than the last. To go along with eight touchdowns and nine sacks, Jones completed 191 of 306 passes for 1878 yards. With a minimum of 200 throwing attempts, only he and Kirk Cousin passed for more interceptions than touchdowns this season.
Sadly, a victory for the Giants could bring them within an arm's reach of the lead of the NFC East division, but it will be an uphill climb as underdogs.
The Giants have been one of the best teams in the league for safety on the flip side of the ball. This season, New York has given up an average of 24.3 points a game, placed at 13th in the league. This season, the Giants cornerbacks have done very well and are one of the finest units to stop the deep ball. They are still very effective at keeping teams from converting third-downs and keeping opponents down to a completion rate of 54.5 percent.
