Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants
Why the Eagles can mark
Philadelphia have been dominant at home against New York lately, winning nine straight encounters since losing a 15-7 decision in Week 8 of the 2013 season, including a 22-16 triumph in the regular-season finals. Running back Boston Scott ran for the Eagles’ only touchdown in the contest, which earned him at least one TD in each of his eight career games against the Giants. The 27-year-old has scored 10 of his 17 total touchdowns in the NFL against New York.
Extremely strong on both sides of the ball, the Eagles ranked third in the league for total offense (389.1 yards) and second for total defense (301.5 yards allowed). They registered 70 sacks, twice falling short of the all-time record set by Chicago in 1984 and ranking fourth in the NFL with 17 interceptions. Linebacker Haason Reddick had a career-high 16 sacks to secure second in the league, while defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and defensive ends Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat also had personal bests with 11 each. Safety CJ Gardner-Johnson shared the NFL lead with six interceptions in 12 games after scoring five in 43 contests with New Orleans in the last three seasons. See which team you should pick here.
Why the Giants can cover
Daniel Jones put on a historic performance in the wild card win over Minnesota. Jones, who will be a free agent in the offseason, completed 24 of 35 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 78 yards on 17 carries. With that feat, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to have 300 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and at least 70 rushing yards in a playoff game.
Additionally, the New York defense has three key players available that they didn’t have in the Week 18 game against Philadelphia. Lineman Leonard Williams, cornerback Adoree’ Jackson and safety Xavier McKinney all sat out the regular season finale, which was a meaningless game for the Giants. Though the defense was undermanned, the defense held the Eagles to just 22 points in a six-point loss. See which team you should pick here.
