Two keys are winning the turnover battle and play count. I am looking for more of a earlier season type of win with the heavy sets on O with lots of running with just enough in the pass game. Wink has all his key guys back outside one and they lead to way.

Agree have to keep it close or be ahead early.

Eagles should win by 10. This game just feels like Giants are over due for a big upset win in Philly.

I smell a bunch of FG's - advantage Giants.

Giant D is outstanding in Red Zone.

Gano seals it as time expires.

Every Giant Eagle game seems to have at least 1 freak play. Blocked kick, pick 6, weird bounces, punt return for TD stuff. Banking on the universe to bestow bizarre luck and bounces on the Giants. They'll need it.
The offensive line won't hold up,  
Since1965 : 1/20/2023 11:03 am : link
so the Giants offense will struggle to put the ball in the endzone, and Jones will be under constant pressure.
Is this 1984 or 2007?  
The Mike : 1/20/2023 11:08 am : link
Do the Giants lay an egg on offense and get beaten by a top seeded 49ers team as they did in the 1984 NFL divisional round?


Does the Giants defense rise up and defeat the juggernaut offense of the top seeded Cowboys team as they did in the in the 2007 divisional round?

Both Giant teams were similar in that they were ascending and had just won a hard fought wild card game. So what was the primary difference between these two games? Coaching. In the first game, Parcells and Walsh were on exactly the same level. Both were outstanding football minds, won multiple super bowls and ultimately elected to Canton. Walsh simply had the superior talent in that game and won accordingly. On the other hand, Tom Coughlin was a far superior head coach to Wade Phillips. Coughlin had proven at Jacksonville that he could not only lead an expansion team to multiple division titles, but reached the AFC championship twice amassing a 4-4 playoff record before coming to the Giants. And of course, would go on and win two super bowls here.

Phillips was one of the best defensive coordinators in the modern super bowl era. But as a head coach, he was a post season failure, winning just 1 of 6 playoff games. Coughlin will one day be a member of Canton in part because of his ability to elevate his players to their collective ceilings. As he did in three consecutive games against the three top teams in the NFL that year, the Cowboys, Packers and Patriots. Phillips will be remembered as a middling head coach, precisely because he failed to get his players playing to their collective ceilings when it mattered most.

So for me, it really comes down to Daboll v Sirianni and it is very close. You cannot argue against what Sirianni has accomplished in Philadelphia, leading them in his first two years as a head coach to a wild card round last year and the top seed in the NFC this year, becoming arguably the best team in the NFL this year. It is indeed impressive.

In some ways, Daboll simply accomplished this year what Sirianni did last year, with almost exactly the same records (9-7-1 v 9-8). But there is one monumentally critical difference. Daboll beat the Vikings Sunday. Sirianni lost to the Bucs last year. But Sirianni didn't just lose to the Bucs. He got slaughtered. The score of the game was 31-0 entering the fourth quarter when the Eagles put up fifteen garbage time points.

And this to me is what makes the Daboll v Sirianni comparison more like the Coughlin v Phillips comparison. Yes, we must at this point take Daboll on spec because like Parcells in 1984, it is early in his head coaching tenure. And of course, Sirianni could go on to become a future Bill Walsh. But I don't think so. I think it is more likely that Sirianni is an offensive version of Wade Phillips. Daboll will have his team playing to their collective ceilings in this game. Sirianni will not.

And so, the Giants win this game 21-17 on McKinney's dramatic game sealing end zone interception of an errant Jalen Hurts pass. And then it is on to beat Mike McCarthy on the frozen tundra of Lambeau! Whoops, got caught up in the time warp there... I mean Texas Stadium to beat Mike McCarthy in the NFC championship, in what will unbelievably be for the third time in fifteen years. Soon to be known forever in posterity as the McCarthy three-peat!

Believe it and it will happen. Let's go Giants!

Critical, dubious calls by the refs for PHI. I could speculate a reason, but will leave it as just a hunch.

bw in dc : 1/20/2023 11:15 am : link
Philly is obviously better. But I am playing a hunch that Hurts is still rusty and tentative and gives us the ball 3X.

We get up 23-21 and Elliott bangs a 55-yard FG off the upright. And that assface Sirianni starts crying.

Final 23-21, NYG.

very happy they drew these refs……12-1 with them. We lose 30-20

Clete Blakeman is the head official. The Eagles record in games officiated by Blakeman? 13-1.

If you're trying to find some parallels. Adrian Hill was lead official Week 16 vs MIN, was the official last week.

Blakeman was lead official Week 14 vs PHI, gets the assignment this week.
I also don't think Lane Johnson will be a liability

Giants go down a couple scores early, then 2 4th quarter TD passes by Jones brings us back, we go for 2 with a few seconds left and make it to win. Book it!
Expect the Giants to play well and play fierce

I like this logic. Make perfect sense to me.
We need everything to break our way

to win. They’re just better than us right now.

So, everything breaks our way. We’re able to run the ball, hit on a deep shot, get some turnovers. DJ scores a TD in the last minute on a QB sneak for a 24-20 win for the ages.

Let’s go GMEN!

Mike in NY : 1/20/2023 12:39 pm : link
Philly lost a Blakeman game against Las Vegas last year and losses against Carolina and Dallas with him in 2018.

I don't think the Giants win, but I also think it is closer than a lot of the talking heads say.

this week: Eagles 27- Giants 21. Giants beat the spread (7.5), but the Eagles are better and deeper. The game WILL be competitive though.

The offense is still lacking key talent and hasn't performed well all year against solid defenses. We'll see if key Eagles are healthy. I think its competitive for a bit and Eagles pull away late third, early fourth.
The Philly OL and DL...

High stress, low scoring game throughout that makes the drunk Philadelphia crowd restless and uneasy. Jones and Hurts get the TDs rushing. Difference will be the Giants' special teams, including a perfect game from Gano and a late blocked FG attempt by Elliott.

I doubt the league wants an Eagles win vs a Giants win. The Giants will be a much bigger TV draw, especially with an upset win.

Very difficult to beat a team 3 times in a year in the NFL.

Gano puts us ahead but the Giants leave time on the clock. We have to sweat it out as the Eagles look like they will drive the field.

Giants saved by a turnover near the 40 with under a minute left.
