The New York Giants (2-10) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) will square off on Monday night in Week 14.
The Giants opened the week as 8.5-point road underdogs, and the spread has changed only slightly as of Sunday morning, with Big Blue now at +9.5
With this matchup on tap, Giants Wire took the opportunity to hold a Q&A with Eagles Wire managing editor Glenn Erby.
Glenn Erby: The inconsistency started with DeSean Jackson’s injury [in Week 2] and spiraled from there. The loss of Jackson’s ability to take the top off a defense reduced the Eagles offense to a dink-and-dump operation. Injuries in the secondary, along the offensive and defensive lines as well, have presented the Eagles with the challenge of trying to live up to those Super Bowl aspirations while utilizing a makeshift lineup.
This is a confident team, a team that unfortunately relies on being the underdog and clicking the switch on. Now that they’ve been counted out, I think you’ll see that sense of urgency and consistency that’s been missing.
