Why the Eagles can cover
Philadelphia has been dominant at home against New York of late, winning nine consecutive meetings since dropping a 15-7 decision in Week 8 of the 2013 campaign, including a 22-16 triumph in the regular-season finale. Running back Boston Scott ran for the Eagles' only touchdown in that contest, giving him at least one TD in each of his eight career outings versus the Giants. The 27-year-old has recorded 10 of his 17 total touchdowns in the NFL against New York.
The Eagles are extremely strong on both sides of the ball and ranked third in the league in total offense (389.1 yards) and second in total defense (301.5 yards allowed). They registered 70 sacks, falling two shy of the all-time record set by Chicago in 1984, and were tied for fourth in the NFL with 17 interceptions. Linebacker Haason Reddick had a career-high 16 sacks to tie for second place in the league, while defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and defensive ends Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat also recorded personal bests with 11 apiece. Safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson shared the NFL lead with six interceptions in 12 games after notching five in 43 contests with New Orleans over the previous three seasons. See which team to pick here.
Why the Giants can cover
Daniel Jones is coming off a historic performance in the Wild Card win over Minnesota. Jones, who will be a free agent in the offseason, completed 24-of-35 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 78 yards on 17 carries. With the performance he became the first quarterback in NFL history to have 300 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and at least 70 rushing yards in a playoff game.
In addition, the New York defense will have three key players available that it did not have in the Week 18 game against Philadelphia. Lineman Leonard Williams, cornerback Adoree' Jackson and safety Xavier McKinney all sat out the regular season finale, which was a meaningless game for the Giants. Despite being shorthanded, the defense held the Eagles to just 22 points in a six-point loss. See which team to pick here.
