Gameday – NYG at PHI

Posted: December 9th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | Comments Off on Gameday – NYG at PHI

Eagles. Giants. Rain. Wind. Monday Night Football. Injuries. Eli’s comeback. Just another normal game in a perfectly normal season.

The Eagles have lost three games in a row. The Giants scoff at that, having lost eight in a row. If you’re going to do something, do it right…right?

The Eagles are in desperation mode. The Giants are in preparation mode, for 2020. This isn’t likely to be a game that will be getting a special display in Canton.

Oh boy. The Eagles only have three WRs for tonight’s game. What could possibly go wrong?

Expect a lot of 12 personnel.

It will be interesting to see if Zach Ertz or Josh Perkins is used as a WR in some sets. Both are athletic TEs.

Barnett will be replaced by either Vinny Curry or Josh Sweat. I hope Sweat gets the start. Curry offers depth at DE and DT. We’ll have to wait and see who gets more snaps between Genard Avery and Daeshon Hall. Avery is the guy the team went out and aggressively traded for. Hall is the guy who had a good offseason and played great this summer. Maybe there is some way they could both split a sack of Eli. That would be incredibly satisfying.

Turnovers have been a big problem for the Giants all year. Let’s hope that continues on Monday night.

The Giants defense has struggled with allowing big plays throughout the season. I’m sure Doug Pederson and his coaches have some ideas on how to attack that defense. The lack of WR depth and the weather could limit their chances.

Saquon Barkley has been quiet the past couple of months and that scares the heck out of me. He’s due for a breakout game. Nate Gerry vs him in open space sounds less than ideal.

It would be funny if Miles Sanders outperformed his old teammate.

We know the Giants will blitz a lot so Sanders has to do a good job of blocking, as well as running and catching passes. Pick up blitzers and Carson Wentz will have a chance to make some plays against this secondary.

I don’t know what to expect, but I do know the Eagles need to find a way to win this game, no matter whether ugly or a sensational performance.

The Eagles must win.
