Nick Foles reportedly took less money to sign with Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles will face and deal with the new reality of not having star quarterback Carson Wentz in the starting lineup when they face the New York Giants on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV). They fired coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese after the team opted to bench Eli Manning and subsequently lost to Oakland. Nick Foles has experience. Philadelphia leads the National Football League in scoring (31.1 points a game) and is second in rushing (143.0 yards a game).

It's going to be interesting to see how much the Philadelphia Eagles adjust their offense with quarterback Carson Wentz out for the season.

In five games with the Eagles, Ajayi has gotten just 44 carries while catching six passes.

The Giants have been in a spiral since Week 1, while the Eagles have been darn near unstoppable.

NY is suffering from several injuries to their secondary, with safety Landon Collins listed as doubtful and cornerback Janoris Jenkins on IR. CB Brandon Dixon (heel/hamstring), WR Roger Lewis (ankle), WR Travis Rudolph (hamstring) are QUESTIONABLE.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game, or follow along as we bring you the latest score, live updates and more. The Giants have not approached that kind of production since. Wayne Gallman led the team in carries with 12, managing to pick up 59 yards, but the defense struggled mightily to get any pressure on Dak Prescott and that ended up hurting them.

Wentz (829,174 votes) finished fourth overall after leading the voting for the season up until the deadline.

The Eagles (11-2) lost Wentz for the season after he suffered a torn ACL in his knee during the Eagles 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.

And while he won't be suiting up on January 28, it's still worth noting that Wentz's 829,174 votes were fourth among all players and second among quarterbacks to future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady (833,481).

The Giants are going to have a hard time blocking Philadelphia's talented defensive front, and I have no faith in the NY offense anyway. Expect the pass rush to get home this time around.
