EAGLES-GIANTS THIS SUNDAY: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

By Ben Sullivan

What with Carson Wentz injured and out for the season and the Eagles wrapping up the NFC East title with last Sunday’s 43-35 win over the Rams, lest not forget that there are still three games to play:

EAGLES (11-2) at NEW YORK GIANTS (2-11)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

OPENING LINE — Eagles by 9

RECORD VS. SPREAD —EAGLES 10-3, New York Giants 4-9.

LAST MEETING — Eagles beat Giants 27-24, Sept. 24

LAST WEEK — Eagles beat Rams 43-35; Giants lost to Cowboys 30-10

AP PRO32 RANKING — Eagles No. 2, Giants No. 31

EAGLES OFFENSE — OVERALL (3), RUSH (2), PASS (11).

EAGLES DEFENSE — OVERALL (4), RUSH (1), PASS (13).

GIANTS OFFENSE — OVERALL (29), RUSH (28), PASS (22).

GIANTS DEFENSE — OVERALL (32), RUSH (31), PASS (31).

EAGLES — Second Nick Foles era begins with QB Carson Wentz out with season-ending knee injury. … Eagles have won six of seven and 15 of last 19 against Giants … clinched 10th NFC East title last week and 25th all-time playoff berth. … Eagles secure first-round bye with win and NFC’s No. 1 seed with win and loss by Vikings. … NFL’s highest-scoring offense averages 31.1 points per outing. … 2017 is third time has started 11-2 or better through 13 games. Eagles went to Super Bowl in those other two years, 1980 and 2004. … Foles was 6 of 10 for 42 yards after replacing Wentz in fourth quarter against Rams and finishing off victory. … Eagles averaging 143 yards rushing, No.2 in league. … WR Alshon Jeffery has eight TD catches, six in last six games. …DE Brandon Graham ran in fumble for TD last week. Graham leads team with 8 1/2 sacks.

GIANTS — QB Eli Manning threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns in last meeting. … Rookie RB Wayne Gallman had career-high 99 yards from scrimmage last week. … WR Sterling Shepard had seven receptions for 133 yards and TD catch in last meeting. … DE Jason Pierre-Paul has two sacks, three tackles for loss and three passes defended in last four against Eagles. … CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has interception, forced fumble and three passes defended in last three against Eagles. …

FANTASY — Eagles RB Jay Ajayi has scored one TD this season. With Foles at QB, look for Philly to utilize No. 2 ranked run game against No. 31 ranked run defense. Ajayi should cash in coming off 15-carry, 78-yard showing against Rams.
