The QB Scho Show #3: Eli Manning & The Black Plague - BGN Radio
Michael Kist is joined by Mark Schofield to analyze Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning in anticipation of this Week 12 matchup for the Eagles. Manning has been surprisingly solid these past two weeks, but does the context surrounding it water down his achievement? Probably, but come find out why anyway. Happy Thanksgiving, gentle listeners!

Week 12 NFL picks - PhillyVoice
The Giants suck at football somewhat less than they did when the Eagles faced them Week 6 of the regular season, while the listless Eagles are coming off back-to-back embarrassing losses. Trying to decide which is worse of the Eagles’ secondary and the Giants’ offensive line is a fun exercise, and there’s really no wrong answer. The Eagles should be able to exploit the Giants’ OL like they usually do, while the Giants should be able to take advantage of the Eagles’ practice squad-level corners with their good skill position players on offense. This will be the 174th game between the Eagles and Giants. The Giants have always owned the head-to-head advantage in this matchup since Game 1, and it has mostly been lopsided in their favor. After the Eagles’ recent ownership of the Giants, the all-time record in this series is now 86-85-2, Giants. So, yes, the Eagles can tie it up with a win Sunday night. #Math. It’s hard for me to pick against the Eagles in this matchup, given their dominance of the Giants, but the fact that the Eagles are favored by six points over anyone is laughable.

Josh Adams giving Eagles fans something to be thankful for - NBCSP
“Obviously it was a journey,” he said. “I don’t think of it as I’m the top running back. I feel like I’m in that position as of right now or last game, but the position I’m in is not only trying to get myself better but trying to help this team and whatever role I’m called to help, and I’ll continue to do that each and every week.” The Eagles are 4-6 and have lost five of their last seven games and three straight at the Linc. Sometimes it seems like the whole team is in a slump. But Adams has been one of the few bright spots in a largely disappointing season.

Insiders predict: Who’s going to win the NFC East? - ESPN
Speaking of the Eagles, they put on their underdog masks for their trip to New Orleans but got their doors blown off by the Saints. There is something very, very wrong with the offense right now, and injuries have hit the secondary so bad, they’re signing guys off the street and throwing them into the fire. It has gotten to a point that even this weekend’s game against the Giants doesn’t feel like a sure thing. It would be three in a row for New York if it pulled off the upset -- and I still wouldn’t be buying it. The G-Men have a ways to go.

CB Chandon Sullivan Is Living His Dream Come True -
This is a dream come true for Chandon Sullivan, playing in the NFL, being challenged by the best of the best, learning the ropes at the highest level of the game. That is being thrown into an extremely difficult situation – New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees one game and Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. the next – doesn’t take away from the experience. Tough times make a young man better. “Everything has happened pretty fast for me in the last month, being called up from the practice squad and playing now, getting ready for Sunday,” said Sullivan, signed by the Eagles after the 2018 NFL Draft, waived prior to the initial formation of the 53-man roster, added to the practice squad a day later on September 2, and then moving to the active roster on October 25, three days before making his debut in London against Jacksonville. “I’m appreciative for the opportunity and I’m doing everything I can to play my best and get better every day.

Eagles-Giants scouting report, prediction | Paul Domowitch - Daily News
When Eagles throw the ball: Carson Wentz had a career-worst 31.9 passer rating vs. the Saints, including three interceptions. Wentz’s third-down passing numbers pale in comparison to the ones he put up last year. He averaged 9.5 yards per attempt on third down last year. This year: 6.52. Just 37.5 percent of his third-down passes in the last four games have produced first downs. That said, he was exceptional on third down against the Giants in Week 6, completing 13 of 14 attempts for 167 yards, 2 TDs and a season-high nine first downs. Tight end Zach Ertz mysteriously disappeared from the offense last week. Ertz, who had 75 catches in the first nine games, was targeted just three times against the Saints and had two catches for 15 yards. Wide receiver Golden Tate had five catches against the Saints, but for only 48 yards and two first downs. Since Wentz burned them for three TDs in Week 6, the Giants have given up just five passing TDs in the last four games. But their pass rush is pathetic. They have just one sack in the last three games and 11 on the season.

Eagles-Saints Rout Hits Low on FOX - Sports Media Watch
A showdown-turned-laugher turned in a weak performance on FOX. Eagles-Saints scored a 10.7 rating and 18.4 million viewers in Sunday’s Week 11 NFL national window on FOX, down 2% in ratings and 3% in viewership from last year (mostly Patriots-Raiders: 10.9, 19.0M) and down 18% and 21% respectively from 2016 (mostly Eagles-Seahawks 13.6, 24.4M). Those telecasts aired on CBS. The Saints’ blowout win was the lowest rated Week 11 national window since at least 2000 and the least-watched since 2002 (17.0M).

Eli Manning vs. Tampa Bay: A sign of things to come? - Big Blue View
In Sunday’s 38-35 victory over the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers the New York Giants displayed for the home crowd a glimpse of just what this offense could be, whether now or even in the future. Saquon Barkley carried the football 27 times for 142 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and also caught two passes for 10 yards and a touchdown. Evan Engram had two receptions for 66 yards, including a huge 54-yard reception late in the game to help seal the victory. Odell Beckham chipped in four receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown. And yes, Eli Manning turned in his best game of the 2018 campaign, completing 17-of-18 passes for 231 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Is this a potential sign of this offense getting unlocked, or is this more of an indictment on the Tampa Bay defense? First, let’s look at some of the best plays from Manning and the offense on Sunday.
