Manning to lead Giants vs. desperate Eagles

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

The plan was for Eli Manning to continue observing from the sideline throughout the end of the season. Instead, Manning is drawing the start on Monday night when the New York Giants visit the Philadelphia Eagles. Rookie Daniel Jones supplanted Manning as the starter in September, but he was officially ruled out on Saturday after suffering a high ankle sprain during last Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Eli Manning to start for Giants against Eagles

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

Eli Manning will start for the New York Giants against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14 after Daniel Jones was officially ruled out of the game. Quarterback Jones - who took over as the Giants' starter in Week 3, leading the team to back-to-back victories in his first two NFL outings - has not practiced all week due to a high ankle sprain. The rookie suffered the injury in the 31-13 home loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, a result that extended New York's losing streak to eight games.

Inconsistent Eagles have real chance to win weak division

Friday, December 6th, 2019

There's several reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles have been inconsistent on offense this season. Despite an up-and-down offense that showed up last week only to see the defense collapse, the Eagles (5-7) still control their playoff hopes. First, they have to snap a three-game losing streak when they host the New York Giants (2-10) on Monday night.

The internet is roasting the NFC East and it’s amazing

Does a single soul in the NFC East want to win the division? After the Eagles (5-7) lost in stunningly horrific fashion to the Dolphins last week, the Cowboys (6-7) hit 'em with an old "hold my beer" and got trumped by the Bears, 31-24. No one has room to talk, but that doesn't mean Eagles players won't talk trash.

Giants’ Barkley hoping to break 100-yard drought vs Eagles

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

The combination of playing the Philadelphia Eagles and Eli Manning returning at quarterback for the New York Giants might be what gets Saquon Barkley a much-sought 100-yard game rushing. The NFL offensive rookie of the year last season, Barkley has not rushed for 100 yards since the first two games this year. Barkley's best game since his return on Oct. 20 came last weekend when he gained 83 yards on 19 carries in a 31-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers at MetLife Stadium.
