2. Force turnovers

The Giants have completely flipped the script from a year ago, compiling 22 takeaways so far this season. They had 19 all of last year. This has been great to see from the unit and Martindale deserves a lot of credit for the success.

They weren't able to force any in New Orleans, but winning the turnover battle in Philadelphia could help the Giants sneak a win against their rival. It was former Giant Julian Love that had two interceptions on Monday night when the Seahawks defeated the Eagles. It's time for the Giants to take advantage of the Eagles on their three-game losing streak.

In their 33-13 loss to the Cowboys two weeks ago, the Eagles lost three fumbles. The Giants defense has been keen on trying to punch the ball away, which is why their 13 forced fumbles this year are second most in the league. Whatever way they can get them, the Giants need to take the ball away from the Eagles offense and continue to ruin their confidence.
