NFL Week 6: Thursday Night Football Eagles at Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles swoop into Met Life Stadium this Thursday for an NFC East showdown with the Giants. Both teams have had struggles so far this season; neither has a winning record. And both sides also lost their Week 5 matchups. In fact, the entire division is struggling - none of the NFC East teams have been able to compile a winning record so far this season. In other words, the Division title is still up for grabs and it is only a question of which team gets their act together first. Will the Eagles soar, or can the scrappy Giants stop their flight plan? Week six gets underway on Thursday night, and you can live the action by checking out our NFL betting odds and live lines to place your bet today!

After a close loss to the Vikings at home last week, the defending champion Eagles are 2-3 on the season. This game gives them a chance to get back to .500, and they will approach this matchup as their best chance to get a step up on all the other teams in the NFC East.

"We're excited because it's a divisional opponent," Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said. "It's a divisional game, and we know where the division is sitting right now, and it's really wide open. We really want to get off on the right foot in our division."

Wentz has been one of the bright spots for the Eagles over the last couple games, completing 65 percent of his passes for a total of 300 yards in the previous two weeks. He will need to continue his solid play now that RB Jay Ajayi is out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee. In addition to Ajayi, they are receivers Mack Hollins and Mike Wallace, tight end Richard Rodgers, and safety Rodney McLeod.

For the 1-4 Giants, they have at times shown flashes of competency in their win over the Texans and only lost by 2 points to the Panthers last week. Only one of their losses has been by more than a touchdown. Winning Thursday's game against divisional rival Philadelphia will go a long way in getting their season back on track. The Giants will be underdogs, but they have shown in their close losses that they have all the scrappiness they need to pull off an upset. Last week's game against the Panthers was a real moral boost, and they will want to parlay that success into this week.

"Even though it was in a losing effort, it was obviously our best performance in terms of scoring points," New York head coach Pat Shurmur said. "Obviously, the quarterback is a big piece to that."

Injury-wise, Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas is in question after a quad strain last week. WR Russel Shepard (neck), Jawill Davis(shoulder) and TE Evan Engram (knee) are all recovering.

The Eagles have won the last three matchups with the Giants and have won seven of the previous eight. Overall, this will be the 167th time these two teams have met, with the Giants taking the winning record, 83-81-2.
