Did you know?

From 1933 to 1999, these teams met in the playoffs only once, but this will be their third postseason meeting this decade. These two teams have combined to win every NFC East title this decade except one.

Bottom line

Despite the fact that Giants are trying to play the underdogs and victims, pretty much the rest of world thinks they're going to win. They're being picked by most experts, the entire philly media, entire NY media, they're Vegas favorites... No matter how much the Giants try to convince themselves otherwise, very few people think the 6th seeded Eagles will go on the road and beat the the #1 seed Giants.

Of course, very few people thought we'd even be here. Heading into the final week of the season the Eagles probability of getting into the postseason was in the single digits. Time after time this Eagles team has defied expectations and done what people thought they couldn't.

Let's hope today ends up with a trip to the desert booked for next weekend.
