The Giants have the No. 2 run defense in the NFL. But they also have the No. 32 pass defense in the NFL, and that’s going to matter a lot more.
Opposing running backs are averaging 7.2 catches and 66.2 receiving yards per game this year against the Giants — gaining 9.19 yards per reception on average.
That means, if the Eagles can’t get their run game going, they should still have plenty of short-passing-game opportunities with Darren Sproles.
Their pass rush is gaining steam and should be able to rattle Eli Manning just enough to keep him from outscoring them.
Eagles 31, Giants 14.
