The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles are facing a 27% playoff chance swing in their Week 6 Thursday Night Football game with the New York Giants. For the less mathematically inclined, that’s no small thing. Get prepared for the game by plugging your earbuds into your earballs and listening to The Kist & Solak Show.
First, we go over playoff odds, followed by our number one concern coming into the game. Hint: It’s two words and describes two moves. Also further discussion about the Giants’ play-action schemes and how it matches up against the Eagles defense.
The Giants have two elite weapons with Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley, but they can’t seem to get the consistent, dynamic production they were expecting this year. Part of that’s because Eli Manning has 23.9% adjusted deep ball accuracy (that’s really bad) and the other part is their unimaginative use of Barkley in the passing game.
Saquon Barkley's Reception Charting:— Michael Kist (@MichaelKistNFL) October 10, 2018
- 97% from RB Alignment
- 74% Checkdown
- 81% Curl/Flat/Swing
Somehow he's managing a 55% success rate, but 1 reception from a non-RB alignment, 0 routes run from the slot & only 5 manufactured receiving touches in 5 games is maddening.
We get into all that and a play breakdown of a blitz package (article coming) that defense coordinator James Bettcher likes to utilize in key situations.
