Eli Manning returns under center to lead the New York Giants once more for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Giants are 2-10 and have looked every bit as bad – and in some cases worse – as the Big Blue teams that have gone 5-11 and 3-13 over the past two seasons. After starting his NFL career with back-to-back wins, rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has fallen back down to earth with eight straight losses. But an injury to Jones has paved the way for the Giants all-time leading passer to lead the team into late-December.
The Eagles are coming off three straight losses, most recently at the hands of the lowly Miami Dolphins. Despite their 5-7 record, Philadelphia’s final four games are all NFC East games. With Dallas struggling, the Eagles can conceivably win the NFC East with just two or three wins from the Giants, Cowboys, Redskins and Giants again.
ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the Giants-Eagles game.
