Eagles Looking to Pick it Up

Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles went to the Super Bowl a season ago. After a blistering start to the 2023 season, many expected them to get back. Now, the Eagles look to be limping as the postseason approaches. The Eagles have dropped four out of their last five games.

In those four losses, the Eagles allowed a total of 130 points. That is not going to get the job done. On the season, the Eagles are allowing 25.1 points per game, which is the fourth worst in all of the league. On the offensive side, the Eagles are 7th, with more than 26 points per game.

Hurts is 197 yards shy of 4,000 passing on the season. AJ Brown has been his top target this season with 1,447 yards and 7 touchdowns. DeVonta Smith also has 7 touchdowns for Philadelphia as well. D’Andre Swift has over 1,000 rushing yards, and has 5 rushing touchdowns. The big story for the league has been the push for the Eagles, which has allowed Hurts to account for 15 rushing touchdowns.

New York Adventure

It has been an adventure for the quarterback position for the New York Giants. What started with Daniel Jones has gone to Danny DeVito and now to Tyrod Taylor. The issue for the Giants has been all of the quarterbacks have been less than effective. The combination has 14 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions on the season.

Darius Slayton has been a nice target for the Giants quarterbacks. Slayton has 708 yards on the season, and 3 touchdowns. Darren Waller and Wan’Dale Robinson each have a touchdown reception as well in 2023.

Saquon Barkley leads the rushing attack for the Giants. Barkley needs 84 yards in this game to reach 1,000 on the season. Barkley has four rushing touchdowns, and four more via the passing game for New York. The Giants are scoring just 14.9 points per game, which ranks 30th of 32 teams in the league.

Eagles Beat Giants

Look for them to play a better, more complete game here. The Giants hang around, but the Eagles win, and eventually cover. Philadelphia wins by a touchdown. Take the Eagles -5 over the Giants on Sunday!
