2. Haason Reddick

Giants fans are all too familiar with the impact of a strong, relentless defensive edge on a team. With Kayvon Thibodeaux currently playing that role for the Giants, the Eagles surely have a superstar themselves in Haason Reddick. Boasting an impressive 11 sacks on the season, Reddick will look to add to that total against a Giants' O-line that has had its fair share of struggles this season.

Last week, in a matchup against the New Orleans Saints, the Giants gave up seven sacks, losing 57 yards. Against an Eagles' team that far outranks the Saints, the players' lack of performance and cohesion up front can't happen.

These O-Line issues have been common for the Giants for years, but it is essential not to lose hope. Just two weeks back, in a statement win over the Green Bay Packers, the Giants' O-Line dominated and gave Tommy DeVito time to work his magic. In that matchup, where no sacks were allowed, it was clear that the O-Line unit worked together, had a concise game plan, and executed effectively. If the Giants want to leave Philly on a high note, nothing short of spectacular O-Line play will be needed to stop Reddick and company.
