NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Can Carson Wentz recalibrate vs. Giants and start second half strong? - ESPN
Stat to know: Giants QB Daniel Jones has lost 16 straight games against all opponents not named Washington. Part of the problem is obviously turnovers. Jones has 36 since the start of last season, the most in the NFL, and he has had at least one in 20 of 22 career games played. But Wentz is also amid eight consecutive games with a turnover, the longest active streak in the NFL. Both QBs rank in the top three in interceptions this season, as well (Wentz is No. 1 with 12, while Jones is third with nine).

Eagles fan confidence increases heading into the second Giants game - BGN
The Philadelphia Eagles enjoyed one of their most successful weeks of the 2020 NFL season by not even playing last Sunday. The Birds actually gained ground in the NFC East and they managed to get good news on the injury front. As such, SB Nation Reacts polling data shows fan confidence increased from 24% to 31%.

Eagles mailbag: Would an All-NFC East team be good? - PhillyVoice
QB Carson Wentz Eagles: The only other option here would be Daniel Jones, who has had a better season so far (low bar), but if I have Super Bowl aspirations here, I’m just hoping that Wentz turns it around later in the season.

Game Preview – PHI at NYG - Iggles Blitz
I think one of the real keys in this game will be the Eagles attitude. If they get cocky, the Giants will go win this game. If the Eagles are focused and play with an edge, they will win. The Eagles are on a two-game win streak. They are coming off a bye. They are getting healthy. They own the Giants. I just wonder how this team will handle all of that. Last year the Eagles won consecutive games, had their bye and then lost three straight games. This is a different team. There are different circumstances. I’m still very curious to see how this team plays. It might tell us a lot about what to expect in the second half of the season.

Week 10 fantasy football bold predictions: Leonard Fournette will be a top 5 back - Fake Teams
2. Travis Fulgham finishes a top 10 receiver vs the Giants. Justification: Alshon Jeffrey is returning for the Eagles after being out almost a year. That SHOULD eat into Travis Fulgham’s carries but I think they are going to ease Alshon in with a 25-50% load to see how he does. Additionally, the Giants have allowed about one touchdown to each of the last four opponents wide receivers but usually it’s a secondary player as James Bradberry is playing well but there are holes beyond that.

10. Carson Wentz turns 28 next month. When Donovan McNabb turned 28, he had already won five playoff games.

Eagles-Giants cheat sheet: Predictions, matchups to watch, lineup news and more - The Athletic
Wulf: I just don’t think this Eagles season is going to go smoothly enough that they’re able to enter the final seven games with a seemingly insurmountable two-and-a-half game division lead. It’s 2020, so chaos is a certainty. Giants 23, Eagles 22.

Keys to Sunday’s Eagles vs. Giants rematch will be third down production and ball security - Inquirer
Where Wentz really has struggled has been on 0-10-yard throws. His 67.1 completion percentage and 5.5 yards-per-attempt average from that distance both are career lows. He has 4 TDs and 5 interceptions on 0-10-yard throws. Last year he had 18 TDs and just 1 interception. [...] The Eagles are averaging just 4.6 yards per play on first down this season. That’s the second-lowest average in the league, ahead of only the Bengals (4.4). The Eagles are dead last in first-down rush average (3.3). In Doug Pederson’s first 4 years as head coach, the Eagles never averaged less than 4 yards per carry on first down. They averaged 4.7 when they won the Super Bowl in 2017.

Giants’ WR Austin Mack taking advantage of opportunity - Big Blue View
“It’s been a grind. I’ve been really focused and knowing that it wasn’t going to be easy,” Mack said. “At the end of the day, just come in, work hard, put my head down and just wait for an opportunity. Whenever there was an opportunity to just try and maximize and keep competing each and every day. I just do what I can to make sure that I make the opportunities. That I am open on film. If the ball comes my way, I just make the play. If that makes sense.” Mack has five catches thus far, four of them last week with Golden Tate inactive for disciplinary reasons. This week, Tate is questionable with a knee issue. Thus, Mack may get another opportunity. What we know about the young man is that he will do everything he can to make the most of it.

Cowboys practice squad player ends up on COVID-19 list, making three players now - Blogging The Boys
Raise your hand if you knew that a player named Walter Palmore was on the Cowboys practice squad. He is, and he now joins another list, one no player wants to be on. He is the third Cowboys player over the last couple of weeks to be put on the COVID-19 list. His name was on the NFL’s Friday transactions. He joins Andy Dalton and Tyrone Crawford on the list.

What Week 10 means for the 2020 NFL playoff picture - DraftKings Nation
Returning to the NFC, the Chicago Bears can silence their loudest critics by knocking off the visiting Minnesota Vikings, the winners of two straight, on Monday Night Football. The Bears’ hot start always seemed tenuous given their offensive struggles and small margins of victory, but the struggles of Nick Foles has brought a heightened level of scrutiny for the organization. Conversely, the Vikings have bounced back after losing five of their first seven games and could force themselves back into the wild-card discussion with a victory in Chicago.
