The NFC East is very much up for grabs, with the division collectively being fairly “meh”, making Week 7’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles (1-4-1) and the New York Giants (1-5) a bit more exciting.
Giants’ QB Daniel Jones is currently the teams leading rusher with Saquon Barkley injured, but still managed to pull his team to their first victory over Washington last week — a very narrow, one-point win. The Eagles have lost, a lot, the past few weeks, but they’ve been pretty close to pulling off the upset — even if it was with ugly, undisciplined football.
This will be the second game in a row at Lincoln Financial Field with fans in the stands, and that kind of energy is both a blessing and a curse — as Eagles’ players inevitably hear a chorus of boos from fans (as appropriate).
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
