Goodson, Hart won't play for Giants against Eagles

Giantslinebacker B.J. Goodson signals to the defense during Goodson, Hart won't play for Giants against Eagles

Not long after, Alshon Jeffery drew a defensive 41-yard pass interference call on cornerback Eli Apple that placed the Eagles inside the NY 5-yard line. Nobody in Philadelphia sympathizes with them. A hostile crowd at the Linc awaits them.

Unfortunately, during Sunday's game against the division rival New York Giants, the Eagles lost one of their most versatile players to injury. But for now, it sounds like NY will keep McAdoo in his continued role. His playcalling has been questioned and he's considering relinquishing those duties. "But you've got to get through them". He's still far from making a real dent on the record books - and still more than 1,200 receptions behind Jerry Rice - but his breakneck pace could eventually put him in the conversation.

Philadelphia won their Week 1 matchup against the Washington Redskins, but their Week 2 games against the Kansas City Chiefs did not go their way.

Fantasy Impact With Jenkins active, he'll likely blanket Eagles wideout Alshon Jeffery for most of the day. NY is sitting on a cowardly 0-2 record that paints them as the absolute worst team in the NFC East.

Prediction: The Eagles are just a better team and they will contend for the NFC East title all year long. "You're never happy with the sacks but when you look at the tape, it wasn't all on us, you know what I'm saying? Very physical in the run game and a guy that's got long arms, so once he gets those hands on you, it's all over". Beckham has been slowed by injury and could be primed for a breakout game against Philadelphia's banged-up secondary that could be missing two starters. That was partly due to injuries at safety and cornerback. With an eighth catch against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, Beckham became the fastest ever to 300 receptions in his career.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is in concussion protocol after hitting his head on the ground during Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. That McAdoo went public was not a big deal to a player who is as good as there is when it comes to handling criticism.

Can either team run the ball?

Running back LeGarrette Blount and rookie Corey Clement each had rushing touchdowns while Zach Ertz had the Eagles' lone receiving score of the afternoon.

Of all the different units that have underperformed in these first two weeks, the offensive line has undoubtedly been the worst.

Guard Chance Warmack signed a one-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles on September 2.

The fullback the Giants had to have was left on the sideline. Bobby Hart, the right tackle, and B.J. Goodson, the middle linebacker, are both out. Might Orleans Darkwa (5.2 yards per carry) replace Paul Perkins (1.9) as the starting running back as some fans are clamoring for?

If the Giants are who they still think they are, they can win this game. So has NY. Neither Dak Prescott nor Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw much when they played NY so it's hard to even rate these players this year.

This isn't a good week to face the Eagles, who get after the quarterback with a fury. SPECIAL TEAMS: Rookie kicker Jake Elliott missed a 30-yard field goal in Philadelphia's loss to the Chiefs and veteran Sproles fumbled a punt that led to a short touchdown drive.
