Week 14: vs New York Giants

All WR vs NYG

FBG says: Great matchup. Philadelphia's struggling passing attack finally got back on the board last week with just its second 300-yard passing day of the season, and its first since Week 1. Volume-wise, the Eagles' pass offense grades as a middle-of-the-road unit, lacking eye-popping volume, yardage, touchdown, or interception totals. However, they rank 23rd in the NFL in net yards per attempt, which encapsulates the unit's overall struggles to move the ball efficiently through the air. Quarterback Carson Wentz's main issues in 2019 have been due to a lack of chemistry and trust with his backup receivers, as their starters have struggled to remain healthy. With Alshon Jeffery returning to action last weekend, Wentz looked his way early and often, peppering him with 16 targets, connecting 9 times for 137 yards and a score. Elsewhere, Dallas Goedert continues to grow in Philadelphia's passing attack, especially as Zach Ertz battles a hamstring injury. Ertz's passing volume will likely tail off in the coming weeks from the double-digit target numbers he posted in November, as the Eagles' receiving corps returns to near-full-strength. A potentially-lingering hamstring injury could also limit his role in the team's aerial attack, leading to increased action for Goedert. Expect Carson Wentz to rely heavily upon his established pass-catchers, like Jeffery, Goedert, and Ertz, if he is fully-healthy, down the stretch this season, as the team vies for an unwarranted spot in the playoffs. The New York Giants, considering they frequently are playing from behind, rarely face pass-heavy offensive attacks. Through 12 games, the Giants have defended the 6th fewest pass attempts in the league, yet they have allowed the 8th-most passing yards, 8th most passing touchdowns, and the 2nd most net yards per attempt in the league. In all, there is very little to get excited about on this defense, aside from one shining rookie in the secondary. Along the defensive line, Leonard Williams, whom the Giants acquired from in-town rivals, the New York Jets, is the team's most effective pass-rusher. However, even his pass-rushing numbers have not been too impressive this season, grading as a slightly-above-average pass-rusher during his time with the Giants. The glaring weakness of this unit is in the defensive backfield. New York's secondary is one of the worst in the NFL, and their struggles are the primary reason that the Giants rank amongst the league's worst pass defenses this season. Rookie DeAndre Baker has struggled during his time as a starter for the Giants, and opposite him, Janoris Jenkins has not been much better. These two grade as one of the worst cornerback pairs in the NFL against the pass, as they've allowed 8 100-yard receivers this season. Julian Love, a rookie safety out of Notre Dame, is the lone bright spot on this defense. Love, filling in for the injured Jabrill Peppers, has played just over two full games of NFL action, but he has impressed throughout that time. His emergence could bolster one of the league's weakest pass defenses down the stretch. Overall, expect Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles' passing attack to build some momentum in Week 14 against another porous pass defense as they try to creep up on the Dallas Cowboys atop the NFC East.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 12 vs SEA (5 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)

The second-round rookie saw an elevated role against Seattle with the Eagles wide receivers missing Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor. Arcega-Whiteside's longest gain was in garbage time with his earlier reception converting a third down with a slant. Arcega-Whiteside has been slow to see the field in Year 1 and both his targets and yardage were high-water marks to-date in his career.
