The return of Eli Manning. Due to an ankle sprain suffered by Daniel Jones in last week’s game against the Packers, Eli Manning is back in the starting lineup. Manning began the season as the Giants’ starting quarterback, playing in the first two games before the team decided to go to the rookie. Going up against two tough pass defenses in Dallas and Buffalo, Manning completed 62.9% of his passes for 556 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Throughout his 15-year career, the veteran QB has racked up more passing yards against the Eagles than any other team in the NFL.
“He looks good,” Offensive Coordinator Mike Shula said about Manning. “He’s had a good week. He always has a good look in his eye. He’s been great for me as a coach, to be around. I’ve learned a lot from him. I look forward to watching him on Monday night.”
If the Eagles want back into the NFC East Division rage, losing isn’t an option. They need to run the table in the next four weeks, starting with Monday night’s game against the 2-10 Giants. Although the team did not inspire a ton of confidence last week we have not seen one sports writer go out on a limb and select the Giants to win this game that will take place in an environment that will be hostile.
