I am feeling like some of these teams. One week on. One week off. 8-7 last week. REALLY? Maybe I should have known that Pittsburgh would break out finally or that Arizona would get their first win of the season. It is truly the players that decide these games. Any analysis of past games only pans out if the players stay in that same mindset. No one knows how they will play game to game. This is going to be another toss up of a contest tonight. The entire NFC East lost in week 5. On a short week, the Eagles and Giants meet up. Read on to see what my best guess will be.



The Eagles had a close one against the Vikings on Sunday. Come to think of it, the Giants had a close one against the Panthers too. Both teams are coming in with 2-3 records. Philly has lost Jay Ajayi to an ACL injury. The defense has not exactly been stellar. That is not good news against a Giants team that was airing it out against the Panthers last week. The return of Alshon Jeffrey has given them a boost, but will that be enough? There is no real advantage for either team here. In situations like this, the edge goes to the home team. New York has the potential to step up and play up to the competition. The offense needs a little more to get over the hump at the end of games. This may well be the game they do it in. One team will be .500 at the end of this game. Let’s see if the home team will be the one.

New York Giants

Ok. I am hoping that my Thursday night winning streak continues this week. What do you all think? It’s Thursday night, and that’s what I think. Good luck to your teams and picks!
