The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles meet Sunday in NFL action at Lincoln Financial Field.
The New York Giants look for a third straight victory to keep their near nonexistent playoff hopes alive. The New York Giants have split their last four road games.

Defensively, New York is allowing 26.3 points and 381.5 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the New York Giants with 82 tackles, B.J. Hill has two sacks and Janoris Jenkins has two interceptions.
The Philadelphia Eagles need a win after losing five of their last seven games in order to save their season. The Philadelphia Eagles have lost their last three true home games. Carson Wentz is completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 2,304 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 13 of his last 16 games. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor have combined for 1,259 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Alshon Jeffery has 37 receptions.

The Giants are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC East and 3-1-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Eagles are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Giants are 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 meetings. The under is 8-2 in Eagles last 10 home games. The under is 5-2 in Giants last 7 vs. NFC East.
The New York Giants have put together back-to-back solid performances in which the offense has woken up, and they're averaging 32.5 points in those two wins. The Philadelphia Eagles have scored a combined 27 points in their last two games and haven't won at Lincoln Financial Field since September 23. The New York Giants have covered each of their last five games when an underdog of last four points. The Philadelphia Eagles have failed to cover five of their last six games when a favorite of last four points. The Eagles aren't consistent enough offensively to lay decent size chalk with, and their secondary is too bagned up to trust against these Giants receivers. Also, you can make a strong case the Giants are better than their record indicates, as they're winning rcently, and five of their seven losses have been decided by seven or less points. I have to take the points here.
