This NFC East matchup could have big implications for the Philadelphia Eagles. For the New York Giants, though, they’ll get the chance to end the Eagles’ hopes of a playoff visit. Unfortunately for New York, the injury list continues to get more players added to it. With so many players out, do they really stand a chance against Jalen Hurts and the Eagles?

Philadelphia is coming off of a win over the Washington Football Team. They’re currently 7-7, and another win will get them even closer to a potential playoff berth. Their last three games are all against NFC East opponents, and frankly, they need to win each of them. Even one loss could see their playoff hopes diminish. So, who should you take in this NFC East matchup?

Giants at Eagles Preview, Trends and Stats

The New York Giants will be without Daniel Jones for the rest of the season. This means that Mike Glennon will continue to be at the helm for the New York Giants. Last week against the Dallas Cowboys, Glennon threw for 99 yards and three interceptions. The Giants won’t be able to beat anyone if they turn the ball over that often. So what can they do to win?

For starters, easing Mike Glennon into his role as a starting quarterback is key. He needs to have time in the pocket and easy throws to complete. They also need to rely more on Saquon Barkley, their starting running back. Still, even if they do this, we don’t see the Giants being able to pull off a win here. The most they can do is cover the 10.5-point spread.

The Eagles know that they need to essentially win out to ensure they get a playoff spot. The NFC race is tightening up with plenty of teams eligible to get into the playoffs this year. This is why it’s great they’re playing the Giants right now. They’re basically getting a game where they know exactly what they’re up against. However, they did lose to the Giants in their first meeting.

The Eagles’ biggest problem is consistency, and we saw that in their 13-7 loss to the Giants. Since then, they’ve beaten the New York Jets and the Washington Football Team. Both teams were beaten by ten or more points, which is why we feel comfortable here. They also have a pretty great history in their last ten games against the Giants, going 8-2.

Giants at Eagles Predictions

Giants 10 - Eagles 23

As we noted above, the Eagles have a great history against the New York Giants. However, they’ve only gone 3-7 ATS in their last ten games against New York. The spread is pretty large in this one which will likely shy other bettors away from the game entirely. However, we’ll go all-in on the Eagles here.

We know they have the ability to beat teams by ten or more points. We also know that Mike Glennon has an affinity for turning the ball over. The Eagles have a pretty strong defense, allowing just 22.0 points per game. With such a favorable matchup, we’ll take the home team to win the game and cover the spread.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Philadelphia's last six games against the NY Giants.

2. The NY Giants are 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

3. The New York Giants are 3-12 SU in their last 15 games against Philadelphia.

Best Bet: Philadelphia Eagles -10.5

New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles Recap DEC 26TH 2021

Jalen Hurts threw for two touchdowns, Boston Scott rushed for another and the host Philadelphia Eagles shook off a slow start to defeat the New York Giants 34-10 on Sunday.

Hurts completed 17 of 29 passes for 199 yards as the Eagles (8-7) strengthened their playoff position with their third straight win.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni spent much of the week in health and safety protocols, but was cleared Saturday to join the team in person.

Giants quarterback Jake Fromm struggled mightily in his first career start, going 6 of 17 for 25 yards and one interception. Fromm was replaced by Mike Glennon midway through the third quarter.

After a sloppy, scoreless first quarter, the Giants (4-11) went ahead 3-0 when Graham Gano connected on a 54-yard field goal with 11:46 remaining in the second.

The Eagles' ensuing drive wound up with a 41-yard field goal by Jake Elliott but the attempt landed wide right. Elliott had converted 17 field goals in a row before that miss.

Elliott came back to hit a 22-yarder to tie the game at 3 with two minutes left.

The Giants' final drive of the first half stalled at midfield after an incomplete pass by Fromm with 34 seconds left.

Rodney McLeod intercepted Fromm on the first possession of the third, and the Eagles took advantage of the short field with a 3-yard touchdown run by Scott for a 10-3 lead with 12:02 left in the quarter.

After an empty Giants possession, Jalen Reagor returned a punt 39 yards to set up at the New York 21. Elliott soon came out and knocked through a 37-yard field goal for a 13-3 lead.

The Eagles took a 20-3 advantage when DeVonta Smith caught a nifty 4-yard touchdown pass with 4:07 to go in the third. The play was called a score, overturned and then changed back to a touchdown after further review.

Hurts tossed a 5-yard touchdown pass to eligible tackle Lane Johnson for a commanding 27-3 lead with 11:45 remaining.

Alex Singleton then intercepted Glennon and scampered 29 yards for a score and a 34-3 advantage.

Glennon threw a late 9-yard pass to Evan Engram to close within 34-10, New York's first touchdown in eight quarters.
