NYG VS the Eagles
The undermanned Giants on a short week absolutely dominated the Panthers with big games from backups Ramsen Barden and Andre Brown. The Eagles went to Arizona and got punched in the mouth by the Cardinals defense.
Key Match ups
Will Beatty and Sean Locker vs. Trent Cole and Jason Babin
Ever since Beatty has got to start there seems to be some stability on the Giants oline and Eli has only been sacked once in the last 2 games. Cole and Babin both played good against the cardinals getting constant pressures and sacks against cobb.Keeping Eli off his feet would be the best way to stop this passing offense.
Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz vs. Nmandi and Drc
Nicks will be coming back after having more than 10 days of rest after his great performance against the bucs and Cruz has already hurt the eagles in both games he has played against them. Nmandi and DRC are both man to man corners who like to press wrs on the line of scrimmage, but Nicks and Cruz are both physical wrs who are great route runner’s ad beat press coverage a lot.
Jpp vs. Demetrius Bell
The giants Dline is full of talented pass rushers and Jpp is the best he has freakish athleticism with a great mix of speed and strength and he is an even better run stopper than pass rusher. Demetrius Bell was the player the Eagles signed to replace all pro left tackle Jason Peters and Bell has struggled so far and it won't be getting easier for him to try and contain JPP.
Key Match ups
Brent Celek vs. Michael Boley Celek is one of the most underrated receiving tight ends in the NFL and is one of Mike Vicks security blanket. Michael Boley is the best Lb. the Giants have and it’s usually his assignment to cover the tight end and he has had an interception in the first 3 games of the season.
Lesean McCoy vs. The Giants front 4 McCoy is one of the most explosive ad best running backs and has had a lot of success against the giants. After Getting run over by Demarco Murray on the opening night the Giants run defensive has greatly improved shutting down the Panthers good ground game.
Jeremy Maclin vs. Prince Amukamara
Maclin was out for Cardinals last week he has become the number 1 wr for the Eagles over Jackson. Amukamara made his debut and was physical and had a pass deflection he will most likely be the one who has to cover Maclin and he must be physical with Maclin at the line of scrimmage if he wants to slow down Maclin.
NYG 24 Eagles 17 Giant Eagle games are always close but the Eagles oline is struggling and the Giants Dline is starting to get in synch and I trust the ball in Eli Manning’s hand over Mike Vick and I think the Giants with Brown and Bradshaw will be able to run up the middle on the Eagles.
