The Giants and the Eagles are both 1-1 entering this key NFC East battle that could have serious playoff implications down the line on the NFL odds, but unfortunately, key injuries on both teams make this game hard to predict from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA on Sunday, September 25th at 1:00 ET in a game televised regionally on FOX.
The most notable injury is to Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered a concussion last week, and backup quarterback Vince Young is also questionable with a hamstring injury, meaning that third-stringer Mike Kafka would probably get the NFL odds start if Vick cannot go.
As for the Giants, they also lost a key player to a concussion when wide receiver Mario Manningham went out of the game Monday night vs. the St. Louis Rams, leaving Hakeem Nicks as the only reliable receiving option, and he himself is dinged up a bit.
In the end, Manningham’s injury could oddly turn out to be more critical than Vick’s despite Michael obviously being the more electrifying player, because with the Giants not having any real pass-catching tight ends this season, if Nicks is forced to basically fly solo against the fantastic Philadelphia cornerbacks, the Giants will have serious trouble putting points on the board.
This is doubly true considering how inaccurate quarterback Eli Manning has looked over the first two games after a poor preseason, and do not read too much into the 28 points that New York put up on Monday, as outside of the running game, the offense did not do much while taking advantage of a couple of St. Louis turnovers. Remember that one of the Giants scores came on a fumble return.
Now the running duo of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs should do well vs. a struggling Eagles’ run defense, but the Giants may become totally one-dimensional with Manningham hurt, and that does not work in the NFL.
If Vick plays, we actually like the Eagles to win this game a lot easier than some may think, but if he can’t go and Kafka starts, we still think Philadelphia wins this game on the NFL odds with their defense. If Philadelphia is as effective in shutting down the Giants as we expect, then Kafka would only need to manage the game well and not turn the ball over.
He did seem poised after coming into the game vs. Atlanta while completing seven of his nine passes for 72 yards without an interception, and the Eagles would also put more of an emphasis on the running of LeSean McCoy if Kafka starts, which is not a bad thing.
Besides, we may actually get some nice line value on the Eagles at home with Kafka, so regardless of who is under center for Philadelphia we feel that the Eagles are the play for Week 3.
