Despite being firmly at the top of the NFL at the moment, the NFC East is still a pretty tight race compared to a lot of the other divisions, so this will be a big game. The Giants are fresh off a tie with the Commanders, which only helped the Eagles as we head into the final few games of the season.
Through 13 games leading up to this matchup, the Eagles offense continues to show new and different strengths. Quarterback Jalen Hurts has deservedly been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week two weeks in a row, and keeps setting new franchise and league records with both his run game and his passing attack. He has no shortage of offensive weapons, and even some of the newcomers like Jack Stoll have started contributing more.
On defense, things are just as dominant. With rookie Jordan Davis back in the mix, the Eagles were able to hold Titans’ RB Derrick Henry to just 30 rushing yards last week. Davis joins an extremely deep DT group that rotates often enough to keep everyone fresh for a full 60 minutes. Combine that kind of run defense with a secondary group that includes Darius Slay and James Bradberry, and will likely welcome Avonte Maddox back from injury, and you’ve got one of the most complete defense’s the Eagles have had in years.
The Giants are certainly a much better team under Brian Daboll than they’ve been in recent years, but it’s still tough to imagine what will be able to stop this Eagles team and the momentum they’ve created heading into the final quarter of the season. Although, Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni spoke a lot this week about how Daboll is one of his greatest mentors, so if anyone is going to be able to find kinks in this armor, it might just be the Giants’ coach.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
