Giants offensive line vs. Eagles pass rush

The Giants’ offensive line has improved in 2022, but it faces a big test against the Eagles’ pass rush. The Eagles had a 38% rush rating this season, which was second best in the NFL. Philadelphia finished the season with 70 sacks, tied for third by a team in a season in NFL history. The Eagles had four players finish the season with 10+ sacks, with Haason Reddick leading the team with 16 and Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat and Javon Hargrave each with 11.

New York allowed a 43% rush rate, the highest in the league. Philadelphia had seven sacks and 23 pressures in a Week 14 win over New York (when both teams played their starters), tying a season high for pressures for the Eagles. The 53.5% rush rate allowed was the second-highest rush rate allowed by New York all season.

The Eagles will have their full pass-rusher contingent for Saturday’s matchup, while the Giants also have their starting offensive line intact. New York’s offensive line can’t be any more ineffective than it was in Week 14.

Eagles run game vs. Giants run defense

The Eagles and Giants have two of the best rushing attacks in football, with Philadelphia ranking fifth in rushing yards per game (147.6) and first in rushing touchdowns (32). The Giants are fourth in rushing yards per game (147.8) and fourth in rushing touchdowns (21), but there’s one big advantage playing in the Eagles’ favor.

New York ranks 31st in yards per attempt allowed (5.2) and 27th in yards per game allowed (144.2). The Giants allowed 253 yards to the Eagles in their Week 14 matchup, while Philadelphia averaged 8.2 yards per carry. Miles Sanders had 144 yards and averaged 8.5 yards per carry while Jalen Hurts finished with 77 yards and 11.0 yards per carry. The two combined for three touchdowns.

The Giants have allowed just 113.2 rushing yards per game since that Eagles attack, even though Philadelphia gained 135 against New York in the Week 18 matchup.


Is Hurts’ shoulder good enough for the Eagles’ offense to click on all cylinders? That answer won’t be clear until Saturday night, but not being on the injury report and getting that extra week off are great signs. The Eagles also have their starting contingent ready for this one, with Avonte Maddox being the only starter out (toe).

Philadelphia has more talent than New York, but the Giants are well managed and Daniel Jones is coming off his best game of the year. The Eagles’ defense is more aggressive than the Vikings’ and should take advantage of the Giants’ susceptible offensive line.

The Eagles will have to score early and often to get the Giants out of this, taking the momentum of the home crowd with them.
