Watching the Eagles offensive line perform during the preseason, it became obvious that the Birds had depth at a position that was one of the biggest strengths during the 2013 season that produced a 10-6 record and an NFC East title for rookie head coach Chip Kelly.
No one though could have imagined that depth would be tested to the level it has been during this young season.

BIG BLUE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN GET READY FOR HOUSTON’S J.J. WATT

Michael Eisen
J.J. Watt comes to the Meadowlands, arriving in ill humor.

A committee of Giants is preparing to confront the one man who might well be the NFL’s best defensive player.

J.J. Watt will bring his unique blend of energy, versatility and production to MetLife Stadium Sunday when they 2-0 Houston Texans visit the Giants. Now early in his fourth season, the 6-5, 289-pound defensive end is a force unlike any other in the league. If the Giants are going to run their offense efficiently, they will almost certainly have to minimize the Watt-created mayhem.

The expectations of the Birds offense are very high and when you see the three receivers who played in the Eagles exciting come-from-behind 30-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts were targeted 18 times and caught just six passes, the questions are going to be asked.

Al Thompson
Things are not going well for Eli Manning and the New York Giants offense.

The oldest no-no in football at any level is… If you turn the ball over, regardless of your opponent, you will most likely lose.
The Giants coughed up the ball in key situations all afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals, who were playing without starting quarterback Carson Palmer.
The result was a 25-14 loss that left Big Blue with a 0-2 record to start the season.
