Lean – NY GIANTS (+4) over Philadelphia

The Eagles will be NFC East Champions with a win in this game but it certainly isn’t a guarantee with all of their injuries. Tight end Zach Ertz and right tackle Lane Johnson are questionable while cornerback Ronald Darby joins DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery on the injured reserve list. Philadelphia’s receiving core without Ertz, Jackson, and Jeffrey is a cluster injury worth about 3 points according to our metrics as it will be challenging for Carson Wentz to move the ball through the air with second tight end Dallas Goedert as the top option. Edge defender Markus Golden ranks 18th in pass rushing efficiency and recorded 11 pressures against the Eagles the game Lane Johnson was injured 3 weeks ago. Left guard Isaac Seumalo’s 41 pressures conceded are a league-high and he will not be able to contain interior defender Leonard Williams, who is ranked 14th in pass rushing efficiency.

Daniel Jones is coming off the best game of his career with 5 touchdowns and more than 8 yards per pass play last week against the Redskins. Fletcher Cox is one of the 9 interior defenders with at least 50 pressures this season but the Pro Bowler will be neutralized by solid right guard Kevin Zeitler, who ranks 12th in pass blocking efficiency and limited interior defender Matt Ioannidis to 2 pressures in week 16. I expect Jones to attack the Eagles poor secondary with time in the pocket like he did against Washington’s defense last week.

Philadelphia’s injuries could finally catch up to them and I think there’s a reasonable chance they lose this game outright if Ertz and Johnson are unable to suit up. Our model favors the Eagles by 4.4 points with a predicted total of 43.1 and the match-ups side with the Giants, particularly in the trenches. The situation also favors the Giants, as the Eagles apply to a 96-172-5 ATS week 17 situation.
