The Eagles are back on the field today for the first time in two weeks at the Giants.
And, courtesy of the Eagles web site, here are the numbers that count:
8: The Eagles have won eight consecutive games against the Giants including the 22-21 victory on October 22 this season. The Eagles have won 12 of the previous 13 matchups to gain a slight lead in the all-time series (89-86-2).
87: Since being promoted to the active roster in Week 4, wide receiver Travis Fulgham ranks fifth in the league with 87 receiving yards per game.
7: In search of his first season with double-digit sacks, Brandon Graham (above) is tied for fourth in the league with seven sacks in 2020. The Eagles, as a team, are third in the league with 28.
209.4: The Eagles rank fourth in the league in pass defense, allowing just 209.4 per game. The Giants rank 30th in pass offense, gaining just 192.2 yards per game.
31: The Giants rank 31st in the league in both total offense (298.2 yards per game) and points per game (18.7).
80: Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ 80-yard run in the first meeting between these two teams was the longest run by a quarterback in team history.
5: The Giants forced five turnovers last week against Washington, the team’s most since a six-takeaway performance in 2014 at Washington.
37: The Giants allowed just 37 yards on the ground in the win over Washington last Sunday. It was the lowest total surrendered by a Giants defense since 30 yards in 2013 against Minnesota.
