Like everyone else in the place Sunday, Cre’Von LeBlanc knew where Eli Manning was going to throw the football on that third-and-4 play at the Philadelphia 11-yard line in the fourth quarter.

Right at him. Right at the man he had the unenviable task of covering.

Right at Odell Beckham Jr.

“Everybody in the stadium knew where it was going,” the Eagles cornerback said. “To [No.] 13 on the outside.

“New kid on the block covering him. I knew they were going to him. Highest-paid receiver in the league. Everybody knows what type of receiver he is. Hats off to him.

“But I know what type of player I am. I fear no one. No man. He puts his pants on [one leg at a time] just like me.”

LeBlanc, who was signed off the street by the Eagles three weeks ago after all of the bodies started to fall in their defensive secondary, was one-on-one with Beckham on the play. No help. Mano a mano.

But he managed to stay with the three-time Pro Bowler as Manning’s throw went high through the end zone for an incompletion, forcing the Giants to settle for a third Aldrick Rosas field goal in a game the Eagles would win by three points, 25-22.
