Regardless of their record, the Giants are always an issue for the Eagles.
Once the Thanksgiving holiday wraps, hopefully, the Dallas Cowboys will have another loss on the ledger. That always puts a smile on the faces of Philadelphia Eagles fans, but in the grand scheme of things, all of that’s inconsequential for a Birds team that needs to be thinking about handling its own business.
Philly’s in a spot that many have said they’d be in, with a realistic shot at making the playoffs. Still, in all honesty, after some of the early-season performances that they put on, there was also some doubt as to whether or not they’d slide off of the rails early and continue to shoot themselves in the foot.
The Eagles are 5-6 after 11 games, but the difficult part of their schedule appears to be over. Their final six games feature the second matchup of their annual two-game tilt versus the Dallas Cowboys. They’ll see the Washington Football Team twice. There’s a Week 13 battle with the lowly New York Jets. Then, there’s the New York Giants.
As they are every season, Philadelphia’s scheduled for two tilts with Big Blue during the 2021-2022 regular season. They’ll see them in Week 16 at Lincoln Financial Field. They travel to MetLife Stadium to see them in Week 12.
The Eagles are favored, but Philadelphia would be unwise to take this game lightly. Here are ten Giants other than Saquon Barkley who have a chance at giving this team fits on Sunday.
