This weekend the Eagles will play their first of four-straight games against NFC East opponents when they take on the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Before the teams take the field, our writers need to make their bold predictions for the game known.

We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this week as the Eagles try to move to 6-7 on the season and tie the Cowboys for 1st-place in the NFC East. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Andrew: Eli Manning returns to the field for his likely last battle against the Philadelphia Eagles. The NFL record for most interceptions thrown by a single quarterback in a game is eight back in 1950 (the "modern" record is seven, last done in 2001). I say he ties the modern record by throwing seven of them, with the most being recorded by Ronald Darby.
Chalie: Eagles get creative this week with play-calling after weeks of bland play-calling. Look for two trick plays and Carson Wentz will rush for 40 yards and a touchdown.
Travis: Philly will finally break the 40+ game streak of no 100+ yard rushers dating back to LeGarrette Blount back in 2017.
Dylan: I think this will be a messy game for the Birds with multiple turnovers from a stalling offense, allowing the Giants to come out on top.
Alexis: Couching finally gets on top of their game and guides the players to a sweet 24-10 victory to tie the Cowboys for 1st place.
