Week 3: vs New York Giants

All RB vs NYG

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Here's one of the few teams that can rival the Giants in terms of disinterest in the run game. Maybe it's due to personnel, but for whatever reason, Eagles coach Doug Pederson is defying his coaching upbringing. As Kansas City's coordinator, his offenses were rush-dominant, but in Philadelphia, he's actively avoiding the run. It's hard to fault him: the Eagles possess shaky running back talent at best. LeGarrette Blount was phased out of the Week 2 game plan (six snaps, one touch), while Wendell Smallwood started and was promptly ignored (14 and 4). The Eagles will eventually run more, but never a ton, and their efficiency will always be in question. Smallwood is a mediocre athlete and runner, one who's been held to 2 yards or less on a troubling 44% of his NFL rushes. And Blount looks done, chugging to just 46 yards on 14 carries and converting only 1 of 4 short-yardage tries. Darren Sproles' third-down and change-of-pace role has been the only sliver of dynamism yet in this attack. Surprisingly, the Giants have been a run defense to target thus far. They've allowed 129 and 138 rushing yards in their first 2 games, and opponents have been able to comfortably salt away wins against a typically elite unit. The numbers haven't been inflated by the game script of two bad losses, either - 58% of that production has come in the first halves. The loss of middle linebacker B.J. Goodson may have been an issue in Week 2, but altogether it's been a far cry from their dominant 2016, which saw them hold 8 of their 17 opponents to 90 ground yards or less. Still, it's safe to expect run-stuffing tackle Damon Harrison and company to regroup somewhat in Week 3. The Philadelphia offensive line has been a shell of its usual self thus far, and the Giants are in a position to take advantage.
