Giants' Manning to start on MNF

Giants' Manning to start on MNF

The point spread in tonight's Monday Night Football matchup between the Giants and Eagles has climbed a full point and a half in favor of Philadelphia. They beat Washington the next week, but have lost eight straight games since.

If the Giants decide to rush Jones back, no one would be surprised. Is that too many points to lay with a struggling Eagles squad?

The Giants are long out of the playoff hunt, but the Eagles are still in the race for the NFC East crown, despite a 5-7 record entering Monday's tilt.

The good news is that he's trending towards playing in Monday night, as the former MS star practiced in a limited capacity for the first time since his injury multiple times this week.

ESPN's "Monday Night Football" presentation this season features Joe Tessitore on the play-by-play call and Booger McFarland providing analysis.

The timing of Monday's report is interesting on many fronts.

Manning will see his first game action since posting a 29.8 QBR and being pulled as the team's starter following Week 2.

Eagles vs. Giants: What time is kickoff?

Eli Manning was officially named the New York Giants' starting quarterback Saturday for the first time since Week 2, but offensive coordinator Mike Shula doesn't envision the veteran showing signs of rust against the Philadelphia Eagles. As of now, what figures to be a massive game between the Eagles and Cowboys in Week 16 remains scheduled for the late Sunday afternoon window.

According to a report from NFL Network, Jones could be forced to miss the next two-to-four games, which could leave him sidelined for the remainder of the season because the Giants only have four games remaining. NY will play early Sunday afternoon games over the last three weeks of 2019.
