Eagles vs. Giants will see battle of rookie coaches

Eagles vs. Giants will see battle of rookie coaches”

The expensive newcomers have played well, and the Giants have gotten contributions from others on defense, as well. Rookies have played their part, including Eli Apple and undrafted defensive end Romeo Okwara, who has deputised for the injured Jason Pierre-Paul. Vernon leads the Giants in sacks.

It was all enough to make you wonder why the Browns traded out of that No. 2 pick and allowed the Eagles the chance to take Wentz. His defense shut down Tom Brady and the unbeaten Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl. His exit in Philly was not of his doing as the fans loved his temperament and his play but, will Philly be willing to shell out over $8M a year for a soon-to-be 31-year-old receiver with a history of injuries? The Giants, meanwhile, haven't been good at getting to the quarterback, logging 31 sacks on their way to an adjusted rate of only 5.4% (22nd). Johnson is slated to start at right tackle versus the Giants.

Zach Berman: I'm curious to see how Johnson looks, but on the surface, it's a boon for the Eagles to have their original line back in place. He needs two solid games with his offensive line back intact to regain confidence heading into the offseason. The result is different if they convert those or kick field goals, but they were able to move the ball consistently. The six points are the fewest the Giants have given up this season and marks the fifth time in their last eight games that they have held opponents to under 20 points. He was 27-of-47 for 364 yards and two interceptions in his first game against the Giants. A year ago, this plagued the Giants and prevented them from competing for a playoff spot. He also can not give the ball to the other team. The key on Thursday will be how the Eagles do in the red zone. They've only surrendered three points in the second half of those two games, and have allowed zero points in the fourth quarter (against two teams, Dallas and Detroit, that are in the playoff picture). The Eagles need to have that same commitment to running the ball against the Giants. If the Eagles can minimize their mistakes and turnovers, they have a chance to throw a wrench in the Giants' plan for a division title. They still lost both games.

Kellyanne Conway is headed to the Donald Trump White House
Some of her previous political clients included 2012 presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and vice-president elect Mike Pence . Conway III, a lawyer at the NY firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz, and they have four children under the age of 12.

One observer with an interesting perspective is Rodgers-Cromartie, the former Dream Teamer in Philadelphia who now is a starting cornerback for the Giants. Beckham burns the secondary for 200 receiving yards.

Eli Manning almost gave that game away.

WR Jordan Matthews - Matthews' line last week of 6 catches for 24 yards typifies his biggest problem as a Fantasy WR.

US consumer prices up 0.2 percent in November
The result reflects the fact that gasoline prices rose 2.5 percent last month, less than half the 6.7 percent October gain. Excluding the volatile food and energy components, prices were also 0.2% higher, meeting the median forecast.

He and Wentz have worked a ton on forming the kind of on-field chemistry he worked up with Sam Bradford toward the end of last season. One hundred percent of the NFL's revenue from the sale of Color Rush jerseys goes directly to the NFL Foundation to fund health, safety and wellness programs for youth. Star-receiver Odell Beckham Jr is the main target for Manning, hauling in 85 receptions for 1,173 yards and 10 scores. The attention will again be on Beckham tonight, and the Eagles can't let him get loose. Manning has struggled all year (mainly due to OL troubles) and has not been as effective as he has in the past. The game will return to an AFC vs. NFC format this year after three years of drafting players by team captains.

In a meeting last night, Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson tried to light a fire under his team. We're guessing this won't come up during Manning's Hall of Fame speech.
