New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles

Nobody in Philadelphia sympathizes with them.

Ben McAdoo's New York Giants (0-2) clown show rolls into eastern Pennsylvania to perform in front of the resurgent Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) Sunday. A hostile crowd at the Linc awaits them. "I think when somebody's down like this they're going to give us their best shot so we've got to make sure we're prepared". His playcalling has been questioned and he's considering relinquishing those duties.

"I don't really have a set number with him", Pederson said. We've just got to stay balanced. "[I] just kind of keep it more situational with him". The match is up for 1:00 PM EST later today and will be happening at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. But they're not good enough to be overconfident against any opponent. Carson Wentz finished with 176 yards and a touchdown as the Eagles improved to 2-1 on the season. They got great production from fourth-round pick Brandon Jacobs and seventh-round pick Ahmad Bradshaw, but since Bradshaw left the team in 2012 the team's run game has suffered.

The Eagles, he told NBC 10, were the team to beat in the NFC East. Hey, any time you lose in this city - I mean it's just how the culture is here.

NY is arguably the worst place to struggle as a professional athlete. Oh, Odell Beckham still banged up. "He's a very hard player to handle, and their offense has missed him the first couple weeks", Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said of Beckham.

Last September, when Jenkins first began his demonstration, head coach Doug Pederson said he would join in if his players held some sort of team-wide demonstration. "He's going to say, 'That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired.' And that owner, they don't know it [but] they'll be the most popular person in this country". Somehow the Giants, despite having two defenders in the area, were unable to knock the pass down or tackle Jeffery inbounds, which would have likely run out the clock.

Tight end Evan Engram (concussion) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (ankle) are questionable for the Giants (0-2). That's a talented group of receivers who should see plenty of passes coming their way.

The Giants' John Mara and Steve Tisch did not agree, joining together to issue this statement late Saturday afternoon: "Comments like we heard last night from the president are inappropriate, offensive and divisive". The Eagles are making a switch at left guard, benching Isaac Seumalo for Chance Warmack. As noted in our injury report earlier this week, both the Eagles and Giants have several injury concerns heading into this matchup. Neither team has an obvious No. 1 back. And Elliott, a bright-eyed 22-year-old, delivered. Wentz is plenty mobile himself and actually led the Eagles in rushing last week with four carries for 55 yards.

Eli Manning can only run the plays he's given, but even then he's not been on point this season. "The first game in Dallas was a must win". But they've also allowed eight. Only thing is that it seems like NY is running thin on patience. Manning was harassed so much by the Lions he went down once without even getting hit.

This isn't a good week to face the Eagles, who get after the quarterback with a fury.

Bloodthirsty fans spewing venom and lusting for a bloodbath will try to make the Giants feel as though they are trapped inside a modern-day Roman Colosseum, with no escape, and no hope.
