The New York Football Giants moved one step closer toward clinching a playoff spot with their 17-6 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. In the victory, Eli Manning went 20-for-28 for 201 yards and threw a pair of touchdowns. The Giants have won seven of their last eight and are now 10-4 on the season. It was against the Eagles where he had his most passing TDs this season. During their Week 9 battle, where they beat their NFC East rivals, 28-23, Manning threw for four scores, two of which were to Odell Beckham Jr.

Speaking of the receiver, he’s continuing to reach great milestones. During Week 14, he was able to reach 3,864 receiving yards, the most by any NFL wideout’s first 40 games.

As for the defense, they’ve been the bigger star out of the team’s two units in the last eight outings. During that span, they have caused 18 turnovers and held six opponents to below 100 rushing yards, while also holding five QBs to a completion rate below 60 percent.

New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Free Pick: New York Giants -2.5

The Eagles get a big boost offensively with the return of OL Lane Johnson.  However, the Giants are in late season mode again. It is time for Manning to get hot and the Giants to make the playoffs again. The Eagles are on a downward spiral because they just don’t have the talent to be competitive yet.
