This Week 18 matchup has few implications for the Giants, who have (surprisingly) already clinched a playoff spot, but will give the Eagles a chance to win the NFC East title and No. 1 overall seed heading into the postseason with a win. The Giants are likely to rest their starters, which explains the Eagles being more than 14-point favorites, and is a move that will likely make the Cowboys — who need the Eagles to lose — mad. Which is just a happy by-product.
Head coach Nick Sirianni hasn’t confirmed that Jalen Hurts will be back from a sprained shoulder this week, but you’d have to assume that they’d like the QB to get at least a few game reps to shake off any rust before the playoffs. One bye week is great, but five weeks between Hurts’ last pass of the regular season and his first of the postseason, is probably not ideal.
The Eagles’ starters might not play the whole contest, but the team and several players are really close to breaking even more franchise and league records. If the defense can get five more sacks, they’ll set a new league record for most in a single season, A.J. Brown is just nine yards away from breaking Mike Quick’s currently held single-season record for the Eagles, and if DeVonta Smith nabs 75 more yards, the Eagles can have the first 25-or-younger trio of teammates with 1,200 scrimmage yards in the same season.
These records would just be the latest in a very long list of impressive feats for the Eagles this season. If the starters don’t see the field for long, it’ll be a great opportunity for some of the depth players and rookies to get meaningful reps before heading into the postseason. We’ve all seen how important depth is down the stretch, and having guys ready to step in and execute is priceless.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
