Key Matchups:

Eagles TE Zach Ertz vs. Giants LB’s


Zach Ertz has been picking up his production recently, and the Giants have had difficulty all year defending the tight end. Last week Ertz recorded thirteen catches for 122 yards against the Washington Redskins.


Eagles DT Fletcher Cox vs. Giants OG Justin Pugh


Fletcher Cox is having a good year along the defensive line for the Eagles. In the first meeting, he forced a fumble and recorded a sack. Pugh will look to limit the pressure that Cox can provide.


Interesting Notes and Key Facts:


Both teams were eliminated from playoff contention last weekend. Both teams are 6-9 coming into this matchup.


The New York Giants defense has been a letdown this season. They are ranked last in total defense and are 30th in sacks.


In the previous meeting between the two this season, the Eagles won 27-7. Neither quarterback played well as Bradford and Manning combined to throw 5 interceptions.


The Giants have not won a home game since beating the Cowboys on October 25th.
