Eagles Defense Will Feast on Monday Night Football

The Philadelphia Eagles are on a three game losing streak and coming off a very dissapointing loss to the lowly Miami Dolphins. But there's some good news the Eagles players and their fans can get excited about for the team's match-up on Monday Night against the Giants...Eli Manning is starting.

Manning was originally benched prior to Week 3 in favor of  Daniel Jones but New York's rookie quarterback has a high ankle sprain that will keep him out of action in Week 14. That means Manning will be back under-center for Big Blue.

Manning and the Giants haven't beaten the Eagles since Week 9 of 2016. In his last six games against his NFC East division rivals, Manning has thrown ten interceptions and has been sacked eight times. Combine that with the fact the 38 year old passer hasn't played since Week 2 and that's great news for anyone using the Eagles Defense during the first round of the fantasy football playoffs. 

New York Giants and Sports Illustrated reporter Madelyn Burke joined Jim Cramer and I and talked about Manning's match-up against the Eagles and his legacy as a 16 year NFL veteran. Burke pointed out Manning's career record is at exactly .500 thanks to a 116 wins and 116 losses. Will Manning's Hall of Fame consideration be influenced if the two-time Super Bowl winner suddenly falls below the .500 mark? Burke and Cramer both said no and predict Manning will one day be inducted into Canton.
