This is the final game before the team’s late-season bye, which should be good news the Eagles’ growing list of injured players. After being limited for most of the week with an ankle sprain, it was reported Saturday evening that quarterback Jalen Hurts will miss Sunday’s game, and Gardner Minshew will instead be the starter. Minshew took the majority of the walk-through reps on Saturday, but aside from his 14 snaps in garbage time back in Week 8, this will be his first taste of substantial playing time for Philly.
After their first back-to-back wins of the season in Weeks 10 and 11, the Eagles were right back to looking every bit like the undisciplined and unprepared group from earlier in the season last week against the Giants. Hurts threw three interceptions and running back Boston Scott turned the ball over at the most inopportune time. The defense for their part held the Giants to just 13 points, and while they didn’t get any takeaways, were still the bright spot in a (very) frustrating game.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
