The New York Giants will face off against their bitter NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles November 21st in a game that will impact NFL Playoffs. Michael Vick will be the X factor in this game with a high octane pass rush to deal with. If Tuck and Umenyiora force VIck out of the pocket he will become more dangerous.
The New York Giants and Eli Manning have adjusted over the season and become a potent offense. The New York Giants defense is the real story. The New York Giants defense turned the corner when they had a ceremony honoring the former defensive greats of the New York Giants. After the ceremony the defense responded with a nine sack performance.
Michael Vick is the best offensive weapon in NFL betting and when combined with a deep ball threat tandem the likes of Jermey Maclin and DeSean Jackson, the Philadelpia Eagles are almost unbeatable. The running game consist of Vick and LeSean McCoy out of the back field and depending on the game one or the other is usually the games leading rusher.
Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora have turned it up a notch and now are once again the most feared defensive line in the NFL. The New York Giants are stifling opponents running games, holding them to less thn 85 yards per game on the ground. They are also clogging up their opponents passing games. NFL opponents are averaging less than170 yards through the air also. The Philadelphia Eagles offense and the New York Giants defense is a wash.
The Giants are the 3 point underdogs this weekend. Sporstbook lists the over under at 48.5.
Eli Manning has learned not to rely on one receiver. New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is Manning's favorite target but he is spraying the ball around the field and using every receiver at his disposal. Manning also has the help of an emrging running game. The New York Giants are averaging over 150 yards on the ground and 250 yards through the air.
The Philadelphia Eagles defense is weak on the edges. The front seven is one of the most talented in the NFL but the secondary is inconsistent and mistake prone. Eli Manning will have his share of big plays in this game but players in the secondary like Assant Samuel may a big play or two. The key for the Philadelphia Eagles is a solid pass rush. If they can rattle Manning they will have a good day. The New York Giants offense has a slight edge over the Philadelphia Eagles defense.
