Eagles vs Giants predictions, betting odds and more for week 12
The Eagles are set to open the series of games that fans have been clamoring for all season.
After taking on behemoths like the Chiefs, Chargers and Buccaneers earlier this season – and having to face mid-road teams like the Raiders, 49ers, Broncos and Saints – the Eagles are finally getting the teams that are void.
Sunday’s game in North Jersey is the first of five games against record-breaking teams. The Giants have been pretty bad this season, whether it’s injuries, poor training, or a tough schedule, Philly is and should be favored in this one as Daniel Jones hopes to put things back on track. rails.
Will they have (a very odd form of) revenge in mind, as they look to beat the Eagles – who may or may not have tanked in Week 17 last season, allowing Washington to beat New York for a spot in playoffs? Will they prove to be a threat to the Eagles’ renewed love for powerful football, running the ball over their opponents like they’ve done in the past four or five weeks?
We will find out on Sunday. In the meantime, here’s how our writers see it Eagles vs. Giants match in progress ...

Joe Judge wants this game so badly that he waited until this week to fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. No matter. They could clone Bill Walsh, and even he still wouldn’t have a way to hide the Giants’ atrocious offensive line.
The Eagles are expected to dominate this game in the trenches, especially on the offensive side of the ball, where their rushed offense rolls around.
There will likely be plenty of green in the MetLife seats this Sunday, and the Birds are expected to claim a home win.

The Giants don’t have much that scares me and they really should be bigger dogs than just 3.5 points. Their QB turns it over, their talented players can’t stay healthy, they don’t have a cohesive attacking plan, their running back has had knee issues and no offensive line to ruin behind, the defense is bleeding.
The Eagles have a lot of flaws, but I don’t think you’ll see too many of their warts coming out in this one. The Birds should have that in hand ahead of the Giants’ fourth quarter stats. Take the Eagles here to cover.

Who would have thought in August that at any point this year the Eagles would aim for a third straight win – with the possibility of a fourth next week – as they prepare to face both New York teams in a back-to-back game ? weeks before the bye? Certainly not me. But here we are, with the Eagles favorites on the road against the 3-7 Giants, who have just fired their offensive coordinator.
It’s a game the Eagles absolutely should win, as they’ve made a living dominating in the trenches in recent weeks. On the offensive side, it not only opened up the running game and made this team one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL, but it also gave Jalen Hurts time to sit in the pocket and make some throws when he needs them, something he’s done a much better job of bailing out early on too many games before this season. On the defensive side of the ball, it allowed them to attack the quarterback and make big plays on turnovers.
And now they face the Giants with a chance of reaching 0.500 this season and claiming their sixth win, which probably means it’s time for me to apologize for massively undervaluing this team early in the season. ‘year. I predicted them they would only win six games. I now think they’re going to have that many by Sunday night. And with the calendar in front of them, who knows how many they’ll have at the end of the season. Will that be enough to qualify for the playoffs? With so many teams vying for wild card spots, we’ll see. But if they keep playing that way whether they come in or not, it will be hard not to call this season a success.

The Eagles leap and the Giants fidget. It is that simple. The Eagles have a game plan to beat bad teams and so far it has worked until the game. Once the Eagles establish a lead it becomes difficult for bad quarterbacks to come back against the Birds. The Eagles come down the slopes and down your throat, adding one of the toughest clashes in the game with Jalen Hurts. What are the Giants going to do? Running around with the Eagles with Saquon Barkley? The Giants just fired their offensive coordinator and got knocked down by the Bucs. If there has ever been a time to double your child’s savings in college, this is the game.

Things have been happening for the Eagles over the past few weeks, with Denver and New Orleans being extremely stoned. This week is the return to the NFC East and the dysfunctional New York Giants, who decided to go the scapegoat route and fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after a nasty offensive performance on “Monday Night Football “against Tampa Bay. What that accomplishes in a short week is anyone’s guess, but former Cleveland coach Freddie Kitchens is expected to take over in a bid to fairly assess what’s going on with Daniel Jones as quarterback. It could be Garrett, Kitchens or Bill Walsh calling the games and nothing will change without an improvement in offensive online play from the Giants.
Defensively, New York has played too much zone overall, but that should actually help against Jalen Hurts as the Eagles second-year QB can tear you up in the race if you turn your back as a defenseman. It remains to be seen whether Philadelphia can maintain their recent running game, but Nick Sirianni’s offense will deliver enough explosive play to ensure the Giants can’t match it.
New York just made things even easier for an Eagles team that is expected to climb back to 0.500 on Sunday afternoon.
