The New York Giants are on a three-game winning streak but they will need to be at their best in order to overcome NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles are currently tied with the Dallas Cowboys at the top of the division on 4-1, but the Giants have started to make a comeback after a rocky start to the season.
With the offensive unit taking time to gel, quarterback Eli Manning has now led the team to three consecutive victories to move to 3-2 for the season, and they will be fully focused on picking up a huge win on Sunday night.
The Giants have totalled 105 points in their last three games and have also done a solid job on the other side of the ball in slowing down opposition quarterbacks.
“This is a divisional game,” New York coach Tom Coughlin said. “Obviously Philadelphia is playing very, very well. It is a game within the division for us, so we are just excited for that opportunity.”
While Philadelphia claimed the division last year in coach Chip Kelly’s first season in charge, quarterback Nick Foles has struggled to live up to the expectations he set with his performances last year and ranks at just 23rd this year in passer rating.
However, LeSean McCoy has also started slowly this time round as after leading the league with 1,607 yards in 2013, he has just 273 so far this season.
In contrast, the Giants are getting solid production from their rookies with Odell Beckham returning from a hamstring injury last weekend to post four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Meanwhile, despite the blow of Rashad Jennings likely missing out with a sprained MCL, Andre Williams has stepped up and has recorded 131 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games.
The Philadelphia special teams has been a key factor in their success so far this season, but it remains to be seen if they can go again against a resurgent Giants outfit.
