NY Giants @ Philadelphia
The Giants are 1-6 and earned their first win last week against the Vikings. This week the Giants go to Philadelphia to face the 3-4 Eagles. Normally, the home team has an advantage but in this case in may not be true for the Eagles are 0-3 at home. The two defenses are fairly equal with the Eagles giving up 28.0 pts/g and the Giants Giving up 30.1 pts/g, so there isn’t much of an advantage there. The Giants are only scoring 18.1 pts/g and the advantage here goes to the Eagles who are scoring 24.1 pts/g. However, the Giants’ low scoring is mostly due to there -14 Give/Take ratio which they seem to have under control now. The Giants gave up one fumble and no interceptions against the Vikings last week. I like the Giants to build on their first win last week and get the win this week too.
