Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants
Playoff Preview - 3rd Round KO?
January 07, 2001
The Giants' offense is built on balance. The combination of running backs Tiki Barber and Ron Dayne could give the Eagles fits. But the biggest Eagle killer has been QB Kerry Collins. In two games against the Eagles, he's 43-66 for 473 yards and 3 TDs. The Eagles have to pressure him into poor decisions, or it could be a three-round knockout by the Giants.
- The Eagles love to bring heat on opposing QBs. They trust their secondary to provide solid coverage.
- Against pressure, Giant QB Kerry Collins (5) likes to go to Amani Toomer (81).
- The Eagles bring eight, including SS Damon Moore (43). Collins has to unload quickly.
