Gi­ants at Ea­gles

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -


The reign­ing NFC of­fen­sive player of the week, Eli Man­ning, goes up against the NFC’s de­fen­sive player of the week, Fletcher Cox. Last week Cox be­came the first player to record at least three sacks, two forced fum­bles and a fum­ble re­cov­ery since 2007. Odell Beck­ham Jr. turned in an of­fen­sive rookie of the cen­tury sea­son last year, but New York is hop­ing his sore ham­string doesn’t keep him out of this game.


Isn’t Philadel­phia sup­posed to have a high-tempo of­fense? So far, Chip Kelly’s squad is 18th in plays run per game (64.0), mean­ing that there isn’t as big of a pie for DeMarco Mur­ray and Ryan Mathews to share. While Mur­ray is pretty much as­sured of a solid work­load, Mathews is listed as ques­tion­able this week with a groin in­jury.
