For the Giants, it’s another bad blow to a wide receiving corps that placed Dwayne Harris and Odell Beckham Jr. on injured reserve Monday following injuries each suffered in Week 5. While Marshall was carted off the field with what looked like a serious injury, Giants coach Ben McAdoo called it a sprain after the game.
Evidently, it’s more serious than that.
Sterling Shepard also suffered an ankle injury and is day-to-day in his recovery. The Giants signed Travis Rudolph and Tavarres King on Monday when the team placed Beckham and Harris on injured reserve, but may need to continue to make moves at the position.
The Giants are 0-5 and No. 28 in points scored. With Marshall done for the year, things aren’t looking like they’ll be getting much better any time soon.
The defense has also been great, ranking fifth in total yards allowed with 274 per game and ninth in points per game allowed at 18.8.
In their last 14 games at home against teams with winning records, the Panthers are 10-4 SU per the OddsShark NFL Database.
The Eagles have reigned supreme in the NFC East so far with a 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS record, fueled by an offense that ranks third in the NFL in total yards with 397.8 per game and fifth in scoring with 27.4 points per game. Carson Wentz has passed for 1,362 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Six of the last seven games played on Thursday Night Football have been decided by five points or less. These two teams look likely to continue that trend of close games as they match up strength against strength in Carolina’s defense vs. Philadelphia’s offense. Home field gives Carolina the slight edge on paper, but this looks like an extremely evenly-matched game.
