Updated May 29, 2018 07:05:06 New York Jets quarterback Eli Manning said on Tuesday he will start Week 3 against the New York Eagles.
The Giants are 3-1 in Manning’s two starts, and he is 6-0 in his career against the Eagles.
Manning, who is 3-0 against the Giants this season, was asked about the Eagles’ offensive line, which has allowed a team-high seven sacks this season.
“It’s going to be hard,” Manning said.
“I’m excited about it.
We just want to go out there and play well.”
Manning has thrown for more than 3,000 yards in three of his four starts against the Redskins this season and he has thrown two touchdowns.
Manning threw for 2,094 yards with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions in two games against the Seahawks.
The Jets have won three straight games and are 6-3 in the series.
The Eagles are 4-5 this season in the season series and 4-3 at home.
New York has won three consecutive games in the past five meetings, and the Jets have lost two of their past three.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 212 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Giants on Sunday, but he has not thrown for over 300 yards in his past three games.
“We have to stay focused and be ready,” Wentz said.
The Browns have won four straight games against New York and are 5-2 in the first-round series.
Cleveland has won the past two meetings between the two teams, with Wentz throwing for 479 yards and three touchdowns in the Browns’ 34-28 win in Cleveland last season.
The Redskins have won two straight against New Jersey, with quarterback Kirk Cousins throwing for 303 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-21 win in Washington on Dec. 20, 2016.
Washington has won at least three in a row since losing to New York.
New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees threw for 439 yards and seven touchdowns in his team’s 45-24 victory on Sunday.
Brees is 6 for 14 on third down in his last four starts.
The Falcons have won at a career-best 11.6 percent of their third downs in their past two games, while the Cowboys have won on the road by an average of 10.2 percent of the time.
