The Giants (7-4-1) must get creative to beat the Eagles (11-1) on Sunday.
New York started the season 6-1 in large part because of an aggressive philosophy. Because the team lacked playmakers besides running back Saquon Barkley, the offense innovated out of necessity, and it worked.
In Brian Daboll’s first game as head coach, against Tennessee, he took risks. After New York scored with 1:06 remaining, Daboll went for two and the lead instead of kicking a tying extra point.
The successful two-point conversion was the difference as New York defeated Tennessee, 21-20.
In their Week 5 game against Green Bay, the Giants trailed 17-3 until they got creative. Rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger scored on an end-around touchdown run, igniting the offense in a come-from-behind, 27-22 win.
