Giants at Eagles
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.
