Ea­gles (2-3) at Giants (1-4)

USA TODAY International Edition - - SPORTS - Dan Ben­ton of Giantswire

Time, TV: 8:20 p.m. ET Thurs­day. Fox, NFL Net­work Pregame.com line: Ea­gles by 3 Ea­gles’ keys: They need to mix their de­fen­sive looks and pres­sures, seal the edge and ha­rass New York QB Eli Man­ning. Philadel­phia also can at­tack over the mid­dle of the field by get­ting lineback­ers iso­lated on RB Dar­ren Spro­les and TE Zach Ertz. Giants’ keys: Big Blue must keep its head in the game, avoid turnovers and costly penal­ties, wrap up when mak­ing tack­les and oc­ca­sion­ally take a chance like in Week 5, when WR Odell Beck­ham Jr. con­nected with RB Saquon Barkley on a 57-yard TD pass. Who wins? The Giants can’t seem to find any level of con­sis­tency. Al­though the Ea­gles have ex­pe­ri­enced sim­i­lar is­sues on a more mi­nor level, they’re light-years ahead of the Giants. Ea­gles, 31-16
