Only one more game and then we get to ride out Sunday night and Monday for 49ers-Rams on Monday Night Football! Sunday wraps up with the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. The game kicks off at 5:25 p.m. PT, and features the team of Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michele Tafoya. Some folks are not big fans of Collinsworth, but I generally don't mind him. And any Al Michaels broadcast gets me excited about the potential for his always fun, subtle gambling references.
Speaking of gambling, the Eagles are a mere field goal favorite. The Eagles are 3-6 ATS in their last nine home games against the Giants. The problem with historical information is the changes we see with new coaches, and new systems. The Eagles 3-5 home record includes a 4-game losing streak against the spread from 2006 to 2008. The Eagles are actually 9-3 in their last 12 total games against the Giants, and have split the season series each of the last three years.
One upside to Sunday Night Football is the game has a live online stream at NBCSports.com for those so inclined. Even if you're watching the game on television, the stream provides different views, which can be an interesting way to watch the game.
