Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants Week 9 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Philadelphia Eagles (4-3) at (-3) New York Giants (4-3), Sunday, 1 p.m.
Mike: Giants. New York’s coming off the bye, and the Eagles had a long night in Texas on Sunday. The Giants also are among the best teams in the NFL when it comes to yards per completion allowed, so if anyone can take away Philly’s short passing game, it’s Big Blue.
Ricky: Giants. The Eagles showed some holes Sunday night, and you have to wonder whether Carson Wentz has a good enough supporting cast, especially among that receiving corps.
Andre: Eagles. Wentz showed he can perform at a winning level against lethal pass rushes when he avoided any sacks and won in Dallas. On the other side of the ball, the Eagles have 22 sacks on the season (third-most), while the Giants only have nine sacks (31st), despite the second-most hurries. The Eagles also have had the Giants’ number in the last decade, winning 13 of the last 16 meetings.
