The New York Giants will try to shake off the dominance the Philadelphia Eagles have had over them in recent years. The game is Sunday night at 8:20 PM ET at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles have won seven of the last eight games in the series on nay field they’ve played. “It is going to be a huge challenge going down there,” defensive end Justin Tuck said. “They are going to be really fired up. That’s what you live for. That’s why you play the game. You get excited for matchups like this”.
In order to win, Philadelphia needs to do two things: avoid the constant dumb turnovers, and try to stop Eli Manning.
“I’m very concerned about the turnovers,” quarterback Michael Vick said. “Being the competitor that I am, I understand that you have to protect the football. I cut back on the interceptions last week and had two fumbles, but it’s something that I know I can get corrected”.
“Right now, Eli is playing as good as any quarterback in the National Football League,” Reid said. “I mean, these last few games, he’s been on fire”.
The NFL lines have the Giants as +1 underdogs.
