The Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) control their own destiny in their Week 17 matchup against the New York Giants (4-11), and will win the NFC East and a spot in the playoffs with a road victory. You can still buy tickets to Eagles vs. Giants at MetLife Stadium from StubHub HERE.
These teams last played each other just a few weeks ago in Week 14 on Monday Night Football and the Eagles got the win at home in overtime, 23-17. It wasn’t the smoothest win for Philly, but Eli Manning eventually went full-Manning and finished the game completing just 15-of-30 attempts.
But the Eagles will face Daniel Jones this go-around, and the rookie quarterback is fresh off a career-best 352 passing yards and 5 touchdown performance against Washington. Not to mention, a healthy Saquon Barkley was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after notching a franchise-record of 279 yards from scrimmage in the same contest.
Still, the Eagles offense has found a bit of a rhythm with their younger skill players, like Greg Ward and Boston Scott. They might have a harder time with Zach Ertz potentially missing the game — and not drawing double coverage — but the team is at least used to improvising at this point.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
