A victory by the Giants could not only knock the Eagles out of the playoffs if the Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins, it could increase the chance Pat Shurmur returns as head coach next season.
A victory would be the Giants’ third straight. It would equal their victory total of five from 2018, and would mark their first three-game winning streak since they won six straight during the 2016 season.
This could also mark the final game in a Giants’ uniform for 16-year veteran Eli Manning. No announcement regarding Manning’s future plans has been made, but it’s hard to imagine Manning returning to the Giants as a backup quarterback in 2020.
The Eagles are 3-point favorites.
CB Sam Beal (shoulder)
QB Alex Tanney
RB Wayne Gallman
G Chad Slade
OT Mike Remmers
WR David Sills V
DT Chris Slayton
Beal, who missed all of his rookie season with a shoulder injury, suffered another one last week against the Washington Redskins.
TE Zach Ertz (back/ribs)
QB Nate Sudfeld
WR Nelson Agholor
OT Lane Johnson
G Sua Opeta
CB Jalen Mills
DE Shareef Miller
The Eagles will be without several key players. Most notably, tight end Zach Ertz, wide receiver Nelson Agholor, cornerback Jalen Mills and offensive tackle Lane Johnson will not play.
