NFL picks and predictions 2013, Eagles vs. Giants: Experts split on game at MetLife

Rob Carr

Eagles-Giants could be a lot of fun to watch, considering the lack of consensus among experts as to who is actually going to win.

The NFC East is a pretty depressing place these days. The Dallas Cowboys stand alone atop the division standings at 2-2, and further back is a wasteland of shaky play from quarterbacks who should know better and even worse defense. The good news is that all four teams are on relatively even footing, making for some tightly-contested football when they meet in intra-division matchups. Though the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles are a combined 1-7 on the season, Sunday's game should be entertaining at the very least.

Unsurprisingly, experts are split as to who is going to win at MetLife Stadium. SB Nation's crack team of experts is overwhelmingly in favor of the Eagles, with fantasy football editor David Fucillo the only voice of dissent. Elsewhere, the Giants get a little more credit.

Frank Schwab, Les Carpenter and Yahoo! users at Yahoo! Sports all sided with the Giants, as did 6-of-11 experts at ESPNThe panel at CBS is 5-4 in favor of the Eagles. For those keeping score, that's a perfect 14-14 split among the experts who chimed in around the web.
