If you look at statistics and try to analyze any sporting event, you will slowly go insane and probably lose all your money.

I have a simple philosophy when it comes to this - and anything - in life.

"Don't look at what is being pointed at...look at who is doing the pointing."

By following this mantra, I can basically tell you why anything in this world is happening and who is behind it.

Las Vegas is favoring Philadelphia over the Giants by three points tonight with an O/U of 47 1/2.  That tells me that they aren't buying into the invincibility of the Eagles and Michael Vick.  They see this as almost a pick'em game.

Which, it is.  The Eagles can score. We know that. We also know they can give it up, too....

The Giants, if they avoid turnovers, can beat any team in the league fairly easily.  They actually could be favored in this game. Vegas doesn't trust them.  They have been sloppy. If they play their regular game - meaning committing 3-4 turnovers - they will lose by 3.

Consider this...

The Giants are much better team on the road than they are at home. No one can quite figure this out, but it gets truer every week. Tonight, they are on the road. In a close match up, Vegas usually gives the home team a small advantage.  That means very little when it comes to the Giants.

On offense, if they can hang on to the football and pound the Eagles' average defense with a balanced attack, they will knock the starch, and perhaps some of the will, out of Philadelphia. Brandon Jacobs - this is your night to earn your check.

The Eagles also fear Eli Manning. He's scorched them more often then they've vexed him. Everyone is fixated on that 2008 playoff game where Eli came up small.  Throw that out. He's in for big game tonight....

On defense, they must keep Michael Vick in the pocket. Do not let him beat you with his legs. Make him throw short passes. He is a great deep passer, but he has only one speed on his ball. He has difficulty with touch passes. His accuracy is not good and his receivers can't find the handle on those rockets from ten yards and in.

The Eagles' top rusher and receiver is RB LeSean McCoy. The Giants need to rock his world. Be physical and make him earn every yard. The Giants need to remind the Eagles they are in a football game tonight.

NBC will be playing the Vick card all night, but it could be the Giants that steal the show...just like they did to the Cowboys and Jerry Jones in last year's opener.

Tavarres King has been ruled out for the remainder of the game against the Eagles with a concussion, the team announced

King exited the game in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion at the end of the third quarter, after scoring a 57-yard touchdown.

He enjoyed a productive afternoon, catching two passes for 70 yards, both touchdowns. In his three year career, he'd only scored one touchdown before Sunday, which came earlier this year.

Giants head coach Steve Spagnuolo doesn't feel he needs to interject in the drama between S Landon Collins and CB Eli Apple.

Apple made controversial headlines this week after he was caught tweeting on the sideline of Sunday's contest against the Cowboys, which is a violation of the NFL's social media policy. The second-year safety has had a tumultuous season thus far, -- both on and off the field -- and Collins supposedly talked to Apple about it. However, Apple refuted these claims, saying he spoke with other teammates like Brandon Marshall instead. 

Spagnuolo had no comments specifically on the Collins-Apple debate. Instead, he noted how this Giants team is a family.

Giants S Landon Collins may have to miss his first career game on Sunday as he continues to battle an ankle injury. 

Collins was listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Eagles. He showed some promise on Thursday being a limited participant at practice. However, he was out for Friday's practice. 

The 23-year-old has played in all 45 career games over three season. He is currently leading the Giants in tackles (102 combined) while have two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and six passes defended this season.

Giants S Landon Collins fired back at CB Eli Apple's claim on Thursday that Collins hasn't tried to help him with the recent turmoil he's been dealing with.

"I guess he don't remember things," Collins told reporters when informed of Apple's claim that he hadn't tried to help him.

Apple had earlier suggested Collins was a liar, responding "no" to a question of whether Collins had spoken to him and tried to help him.

Landon Collins' season isn't over yet. But the end may be coming soon.

The Giants are still considering whether to shut down their star safety for the final three games after he re-injured his ankle on Sunday afternoon, according to interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo. Collins has been playing through a high ankle sprain since Week 5, and it he aggravated it on Sunday in the Giants' loss to the Cowboys.

Spagnuolo had already indicated on Monday that they might put the 23-year-old on injured reserve "to protect Landon from himself."

Davis Webb will remain the Giants' third-string quarterback this week, and he likely won't be activated on Sunday afternoon.

But one week from Sunday - on Christmas Eve - it's possible all that may change.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo opened the door on Wednesday for the 22-year old Webb to make his first career start on Dec. 24 in Arizona. He made no promises, of course, and it's possible it hasn't even been discussed among the coaching staff and decision-makers yet.

But even if Dave Gettleman is the first to be interviewed, he won't be the last.

Though there is strong speculation around the league that the Giants will eventually hire the 66-year-old Gettleman -- who worked for the Giants as a scout, the pro personnel director, and a senior pro personnel analyst from 1998-2012 -- the truth is they intend to cast a wide net in their search, according to a team source...

But they've reached the point in their season where they can win for losing, and on Sunday they did. Their 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, plus the San Francisco 49ers' 26-16 win in Houston, helped solidify the Giants' position in the 2018 draft, where right now they'd have the second pick.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Rashad Jennings has told the story before of how he was once a chubby 6-year-old with asthma and some seemingly unlikely NFL dreams. He thought of that kid again on Friday, as his eight-year NFL career officially came to an end.

"It's not every day you can ask a kid that's 6 years old and say, 'What do you want to do when you get older?' and you talk to him at 32 years old and he tells you that's exactly what he's been doing," Jennings said. "And because of that I'm full, I'm complete, I'm humble. I have no regrets. If I could rewind the tape, I would do it the exact same way."
