Early Preview, NFL Week 3
Giants vs. Eagles Prediction
Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
Written by David Hess
Monday Night Football and a pair of teams from the NFC East will square off as the New York Giants pay a visit to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA to rumble with the Philadelphia Eagles. This is the first meeting between these teams this year. The Eagles won both meetings last year and the last five in this series overall.
The New York Giants have had a miserable season as many expected. They did make the change at QB from Eli Manning to Daniel Jones and it gave them a shot in the arm early on. Still, Jones doesn't have a tone of talent around him and the Giants have lost their last eight games in a row. He does have Saquon Barkley but he has not been nearly as good as last year, plus Jones has very little talent at the WR position and a defense that has more holes than Swiss cheese. The Giants were just crushed by the Packers at home by a score of 31-13. Can Giants end their losing skid and at the same time deal a serious blow to Philadelphia's playoff chances? We shall see.
The Philadelphia Eagles are ready had a serious blow dealt to them as they come in off a horrible 37-31 loss to the pitiful Miami Dolphins on the road. The Eagles are not out of the playoff race, but they had a shot of taking a one-game lead over the Cowboys in the NFC East with a win. The Eagles choked this past Sunday. There is no other word for what happened but the good news is that Philly is just one game behind Dallas in the division with four games to go plus the Eagles still have a home game against Dallas down the road. Can Philly keep their playoff hopes alive with a win over the Giants? You'll have to check back to find out.
