The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are at MetLife Stadium for an NFC East rivalry game. The Giants are looking for something to go right after getting run off the field by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 30-10 on Monday Night Football.
They had to make some changes after that performance, and said goodbye to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. He was an easy target to let go after the offense failed to show much life and countless mistakes. The Giants’ problems go beyond Garrett, though.

Head coach Joe Judge probably should have to contact his real estate agent to sell his place as well. I wasn’t fond of the hire when it was made and clearly still not a fan of Judge as a head coach. With the loss against the Buccaneers, the Giants regressed to 3-7 on the year.
They’d be better served by tanking at this point and looking forward to the draft, but there are a lot of people fighting for jobs at the moment. From the coaching staff to their starting quarterback, Daniel Jones, there is a lot to sort out over the next month.
Jones might be fine in a better situation on a different team. He’s dealing with a dysfunctional bunch on the Giants, but Jones has to step up and stop the rookie errors. In his third season in the NFL, Jones has to make players around him better. That’s what is required from a first-round quarterback.
Coming off a 20-point loss against the Buccaneers, you have to believe that the intensity is going to be turned up for the Giants. Firing Garrett had to be a strong message to the rest of the team. Put in the effort or you could be gone soon or at the end of the year. They welcome an Eagles team feeling confident about their playoff chances.

Philadelphia is a 5-6 team that is within reach of the 7-4 Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. The Cowboys lost on Thanksgiving against the Raiders, opening up the door for the Eagles to have a chance. They’re alive in the wildcard race as well.
The Eagles are looking for their third straight win after a 30-13 win on the road against the Denver Broncos, and a 40-29 win two weeks back against the New Orleans Saints. With an extra week to prepare for the Giants, we’ll see if they keep on rolling. Head below for our free Eagles vs. Giants pick on November 28, 2021.

Eagles vs. Giants Prediction:
Jalen Hurts may not be the best quarterback in the NFL, but he’s a dynamic signal caller that can be difficult to prepare for. The Giants will have to do it on a short week after getting blown out on Monday Night Football.
Hurts has passed for 2,306 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions on 61.6% completions. He’s also gained 618 yards and 8 touchdowns on 5.4 yards per carry. His ability to take off and run makes him doubly dangerous.
He doesn’t have Lamar Jackson speed, but is more than willing to take off and pick up a 3rd down conversion on his legs. The Eagles’ offense has generated an average of 352.8 yards and 27 points per game.
They’ve quietly jumped up into the top-10 with 27 points per game. It’s all thanks to their running game, which is second in the NFL with 153.4 rushing yards per game. They are a well-balanced team on the ground that can get production from a multitude of options.

The Giants can be beaten on the ground. Their defense hasn’t held up well against the run, as they’ve allowed an average of 119.7 yards per game for 23rd in the NFL. The Giants are 24th in the league with 24.6 points against per game.
I’m most concerned with the Giants’ offense, though. They are just so herky jerky with no rhythm. It’s been a disappointing effort no doubt from the offense as a group. While Daniel Jones could play better, he isn’t the only problem here.
Saquon Barkley hasn’t looked as explosive on his return from injury. He has 220 yards and 2 touchdowns on 3.7 yards per carry.
Giants ruled out WR Sterling Shepard (quad) and TE Kaden Smith (knee) for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and WR Kadarius Toney (quad) are listed as doubtful.
RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is listed as questionable.

Barkley is the focal point of the offense, but isn’t doing enough to scare off defenses. They can play their normal defense without having to put a ton of resources into defending Barkley.
Jones has passed for 9 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 64.4% completions. The offense is 25th in the league with just 18.9 points scored per game.
Philadelphia has been above average on defense, and has looked better with the play of Darius Slay’s play heating up. They are 11th against the pass with 213.5 yards against per game, and 13th overall with 348.1 yards allowed per contest.
Coming off a bye week and the Giants on a short week during a dysfunctional past week, expect the Eagles to pull away in the 4th quarter for a 28-20 or 27-17 win at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
