One of the league’s best rivalries will be renewed Sunday, September 30, 2012 when the New York Giants visit the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Kickoff is slated for 8:20 PM ET from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Both teams are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC East with the Cowboys and will be looking to get a leg up in the standings. We are backing the Giants over the Eagles in this contest.
Giants Aiming for Third Straight Win
After dropping their season opener to the Cowboys, the Giants have won two straight over Tampa Bay and Carolina. Now, the Giants will take on the Eagles for the first time this season and look for their third consecutive win. The Giants offensive line will be tested by the Eagles defensive front, which has put pressure on opposing quarterbacks very well this season. The verdict is still out on this Giants team three games into the season. Are they the team that lost to the Cowboys and then needed an extraordinary fourth quarter to defeat Tampa Bay or are they the team that blew out Carolina?
Vick and Eagles Playing for a Rebound Win
Michael Vick, after last week’s shellacking by the Cardinals, could be in danger of losing his starting job to rookie backup Nick Foles very soon. Vick has struggled to hold onto the football this season, throwing six interceptions in the first two games and losing three fumbles. Head coach Andy Reid said this week that Vick is the team’s quarterback but many who heard his press conference weren’t sold on his support. Vick has been hammered by defenses this season and seeing the Giants should not make it any easier for Vick tonight.
As these two teams meet Sunday night to finish the day’s slate of games, the online betting site Sportsbook.com has the Giants as +1 (+110) favorites to knock off the Eagles on the road. Eli Manning should have no problem Sunday night in leading the Giants to a third consecutive win so place your bets now for the Giants over the Eagles.
