Eli Manning and the G-Men were supposed to bounce back from a disappointing 2012 campaign to make another random run at a Super Bowl. Instead, they’ve been ineffective at running the ball, while struggling with pass protection and even their pass-rush on defense. Overall, it’s resulted in two straight horrible blowouts and an abysmal 0-4 start.
While the skies are dark in New York these days, the Giants still have hope. After all, they’ll be hosting the Eagles, who roll in with a Chip Kelly offense that has suddenly turned conservative and ineffective over the past two weeks.
That impressive, fast-paced Philly offense we saw through the first two weeks and averaged over 30 points a game has vanished. Michael Vick has turned into a passive quarterback who takes too many hits and sacks, and Philadelphia has continued to abandon the run due to falling behind.
As bad as both teams have been through four weeks, it’s hard to kick either while they’re down due to so much talent gracing the field this Sunday. Both teams have sketchy defenses, but there’s no denying their ability to light up the scoreboard on a good day.
That being said, it’s actually not crazy that this one comes in at $322 on average with a get-in price of $93. The crazier thing is it’s actually 7% cheaper than the average price for Giants tickets at home this season.
Ultimately, Giants and Eagles fans want a good game and a bargain, if they can get it. That just might happen this week.
Neither team has been good at stopping the opposition, which should allow a bit of an offensive fire fight. That should lead to explosive plays and a high-scoring affair. How it ends and who ends up winning is going to be fairly unpredictable, but a division rivalry this heated with so much potential is sure to be worth the steep price.
