The Eagles are back at Lincoln Financial Field this weekend to play the Giants. Can Philadelphia rebound from their blowout loss to the Saints or are the Eaglse headed for three losses in a row? I got together with John Stolnis to talk about the game (and some other things) on the latest episode of BGN Radio.
1. THANKSGIVING MEMORIES
What is your favorite Eagles Thanksgiving memory?
2. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE REDSKINS-COWBOYS GAME
What does this mean for the Eagles and the NFC East?
Eagles still, amazingly, control their own destiny
The Cowboys winning this game is probably the more favorable option – it would mean that both Washington and Dallas are just a game ahead of the Eagles , assuming they beat the Giants.
The Eagles have to win out against the remaining 4 games against the division – beating the Cowboys would eliminate that tie-breaker and beating Washington in both games would give them the division
BUT DOES ANY OF THIS MATTER???
3. INJURY REPORT
Four cornerbacks missed practice on Thursday: Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas and Avonte Maddox (plus Ronald Darby on IR)
If one or any of those guys are good to go on Sunday, the Eagles will have people named Chandon Sullivan, De’Vante Bausby and Cre-Von LeBlanc as their cornerbacks – not a single one was on the team’s roster as of Week 7
Jordan Hicks did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday either
Darren Sproles … still out
As bad as Eli Manning is… even he can take advantage of an Eagles secondary as weak as the Eagles… how do they stop Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard?
Eagles defense has been gashed by the run the last two weeks… how much should we expect from Timmy Jernigan this week, and can they stop Saquon Barkley?
Look for Barkley to continue to be a threat as a receiver out of the backfield
Carson Wentz had his worst game in two years last week… how do you think he’ll bounce back?
Do you agree with Janoris Jenkins’ assessment that Wentz is a different player right now because he isn’t using his legs?
How much should we expect from Golden Tate? And is he back next year?
Doug Pederson talked about getting Josh Adams more touches… do you think they’ll focus more on the run game this week?
5. NFL PICKS
SEATTLE AT CAROLINA (-3)
GREEN BAY AT MINNESOTA (-4)
TENNESSEE AT HOUSTON (-6.5)
6. EAGLES VS GIANTS PICK
EAGLES FAVORED BY 6???
