Week 17: Three keys to Eagles-Giants
December 28, 2012, 7:30 pm
Keys to the Eagles' Week 17 matchup with the 8-7 New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
1. Let Vick be himself
The Eagles must let Michael Vick be himself. Don’t restrict Vick to the pocket only to run as a last resort. Let him use the legs and speed that made him famous.
2. Feed Shady
The Eagles need to give the ball to LeSean McCoy on the ground and in the passing game.
In recent years, McCoy has been the Giants' Kryptonite. A steady dose of Shady will take all the strength out of the G-men.
3. Get after Eli
The Eagles must turn their defense loose on Eli Manning. Manning has only been sacked 18 times this season. The Eagles' defense only has 29 sacks the entire year.
Let's see the Eagles' D step out of the norm and be unpredictable. Why not? What do they have to lose?
