Jaws' Pick

Philadelphia at N.Y. Giants

Time: 8:20 p.m. today (Fox/NFLNetwork)

Records: Eagles 2-3; Giants 1-4

The skinny: Both teams are struggling coming into this NFC East battle. The champion Eagles have underachieved and now are a mess at running back with Jay Ajayi (knee) out for rest of season. That'll put more attention on tight end Zach Ertz, who has been the Eagles' best weapon. The Giants have been dealing with more Odell Beckham drama, as the diva receiver criticized the offense last week before he became the second player with 100 yards receiving, a touchdown catch and TD pass of 50-plus yards in a game. The Giants have lost three straight to the Eagles and seven of eight.

Prediction: Giants 24-20

Last week: 9-6; Season: 38-23-2
