Philadelphia Eagles (4-3):

Veteran Darren Sproles amassed 103 yards from scrimmage (86 rushing, 17 receiving) last week with fellow running back Ryan Mathews seeing his carries dwindle after a costly fumble in the previous contest. The 33-year-old Sproles looks to ignite Philadelphia’s mediocre rushing attack (17th) against New York, against which he has recorded four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) in his last five games. The Eagles significantly are better at rushing the passer, as defensive end Brandon Graham and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox each have four of the team’s 22 sacks this season.

New York Giants (4-3):

Victor Cruz doesn’t have fond memories of the last time he faced Philadelphia, as the 29-year-old wideout tore his patellar tendon in his right knee in 2014. “Obviously, in the back of my mind, I think about it,” Cruz told reporters this week about the injury. “It’s different circumstances, different year (and different stadium), but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it’s on my mind at some point.” The Giants’ ground attack could use a jolt as Rashad Jennings has been limited to a total of 67 yards rushing in his last three games, although he erupted for 170 yards and a touchdown in his last encounter with the Eagles.
Team record: 4-3 SU,2-3-2 ATS
NY Giants is 2-5-2 ATS in its last 9 games
