The Philadelphia Eagles are playing their fourth must-win game in a row this weekend as they travel up the turnpike to face the New Jersey Giants. In order to preview this week’s matchup, Jimmy Kempski and I got together to record the second half of this week’s BGN Radio podcast (click here if you missed the first half).

NEWS AND NOTES
- Lots of injuries for the Eagles and Giants. No Zach Ertz? Lane Johnson back soon? New York’s struggling secondary even worse off?
- Thoughts on the Eagles’ roster moves from earlier this week: Ronald Darby to injured reserve (who should start in his place?), Richard Rodgers re-signed (should the team have promoted Alex Ellis instead?), Jay Ajayi waived (what’s Jordan Howard’s role going to be like?), and Deontay Burnett promoted from the practice squad (he might actually be kinda good?!)
- Playing a game of “Will this Eagles player be back in 2020? And should they be?” with one player at every position on the roster.
EAGLES VS. GIANTS MATCHUPS
- Saquon Barkley is looking like a beast again.
- Daniel Jones is better than Eli Manning. Some huge games statistically, but the turnovers are a big issue.
- Pass rush has been quiet. Needs to show up on Sunday. BLG thinks BLG is especially due for a big game.
- Giants defense is big up front, and good against the run. Eagles ran outside on them. Need to run in the rain.
- Confidence level in Carson Wentz staying hot.
- Assuming the Eagles find a way to beat the Giants, should they rather play the Seattle Seattle or San Francisco 49ers in the wild card round?
- The silly Eli Manning lovefest.
- Shouldn’t Giants fans want to see their team lose this game?
- Krista Kempski returns to the podcast for an important post-Christmas update!
- BLG and Jimmy call for you to specifically leave them some love in the iTunes reviews!
- Final thoughts and more!
