The New York Giants (7-4-1) welcome the Philadelphia Eagles (11-1) over to the MetLife Stadium on Sunday for a Week 14 matchup. The two sides face off this week in a divisional matchup that might significantly impact the NFC East race. The New York Giants are in third place in the division, with a 7-4 record from 12 regular season matches. In first lies the Philadelphia Eagles, who are 11-1 from 12 contests. As the regular season enters its final weeks, the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles are both set for the playoffs and will look to extend their grip on a postseason berth by winning the latest matchup of this series.
Form New York Giants
The New York Giants are 7-4-1 for the season and their latest match against the Washington Commanders ended in a rare 20-20 tie, leaving them 5-4-1 across their past 10 games and 3-1-1 in the last five at home.
Unfortunately, the New York Giants offense hasn’t performed to its usual standards of late. In the last five matches, the offensive unit has only put up 19.0 points on average, which is someway off this season’s tally of 20.4 points. Surrendering 21.0 points per game leaves the New York Giants’ defense around the middle of the pack compared to the rest of the league’s defensive units.
Despite going no further than the wild card round of the playoffs in January, New York Giants are hopeful of a potential NFC Championship challenge after going 7-4 in the regular season so far.
Form Philadelphia Eagles
Form is strong for the Philadelphia Eagles, who beat Tennessee Titans by a 35-10 scoreline last time out, thereby extending their winning streak to three matches. Their overall regular season record is now 11-1 and 5-0 on the road.
In terms of points added, it’s fair to say the Philadelphia Eagles have a strong and consistent offense. The unit has put 28.4 points on board in the last five matches after all, while averaging 28.2 points for this season. The defense, on the other hand, hasn’t been as effective in putting the brakes on opposing offenses of late. In the past five outings, 21.6 points have been lost on average. This is more than the away team usually gives up, having allowed a decent 18.8 points per game this season.
The Philadelphia Eagles are touted as a potential Super Bowl challenger for this season. While it’s still early days, things are going according to plan so far. The visitors hold the first seed in the NFC Conference, leaving them set for a spot in the January playoffs. Until then, the aim will be to strengthen their position by either maintaining or improving their current seeding.
