The Line: Philadelphia Eagles -5 -- Over/Under: 50 See the Latest Odds
The Eagles look to make a statement in the NFC East with a Monday Night Football win as they welcome their division rivals from New York to the Linc.
The Giants head into Philly on Monday night looking to continue their surge in the NFC East after a three game winning streak but they will be in tough against an Eagles side that seemingly found their stride last week and will be looking to send the rabid Eagles fans home happy. The Giants have made huge strides over the last three weeks as Eli Manning seems to have the offense in a groove and while Odell Beckham has been hit and miss this season he remains one of the game's biggest threats through the air and he will have to be on point in this one if the Giants are to pull off the victory. New York hasn't been able to get the ground game going with a ton of efficiency but Shane Vereen was huge in the passing game last week and if the Giants continue to look his way and they can pick up good chunks of yardage it will go a long way to keeping Sam Bradford off the field which is where the Giants will operate best.

Philadelphia has been a very interesting to watch this season as they have looked very pedestrian some weeks but world beaters the next and that type of inconsistency is going to cause heart burn for Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia faithful. On paper, the Eagles should be in the mix as NFC contenders as they have a solid ground game led by Demarco Murray and have some weapons through the air in Jordan Matthews and Riley Cooper but the success of the team will be determined by how far Sam Bradford can carry them. The Eagles are in a good spot here at home on Monday night and while the Giants have been the better of the two teams of late I do think this is a breakout spot for the Eagles as the Giants are due for a let down and the Eagles should get the win and cover here.
