2. Wan'Dale Robinson will have a break out game against the Eagles

One offensive player who has recently impressed the G-Men is veteran wideout Wan'Dale Robinson. Not only had Robinson been targeted by DeVito 20 times over the last four weeks, but he has 17 receptions for 165 yards during that span. Two weeks ago, he had six receptions for 79 yards in a Monday Night Football thriller over the Packers. Last time out, he corralled all four of his targets for 25 yards.

The chemistry between Robinson and DeVito continues to get more vital week after week, and there's no doubt Wan'Dale has been the Giants' best receiver in the second half of the season. What makes Robinson so good is his speed and route running. Robinson averages 4.2 yards of separation from his assigned defender when the pass arrives, which is third-best among all NFL wide receivers.

It will be interesting to see who Robinson's matchup will be this weekend against the Eagles, with star cornerback Slay questionable after missing last week's game against the Seahawks. Still, we can only hope that Robinson continues to get opportunities from DeVito and be the Giants' most consistent offensive target.
