Occasionally, there are weeks in the NFL, where everything goes as it should. The Philadelphia Eagles have an opportunity to put a bow on an early Christmas present, one where every NFC East team loses except for the one that plays in the City of Brotherly Love.
Week 12 of the NFL season began with three games on Thanksgiving. The second of which was the annual game in Arlington featuring the so-called America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys.
They lost, and DeSean Jackson was one of the heroes for the Las Vegas Raiders. It was awesome!
That brings us to Sunday’s slate. The Eagles have an opportunity to win and, simultaneously, hand the New York Giants a loss. The Washington Football Team is scheduled to face the Seattle Seahawks in the final game of Week 12 on Monday Night Football.
As always, the health of every NFL team will be one of the big stories as we approach kickoff. Here’s who we’re expecting to be absent when the Birds meet Big Blue.
Philadelphia Eagles versus New York Giants Week 12 inactives
What’s been a relatively healthy season for the Philadelphia Eagles continues (knock on wood); however, Jordan Howard is ruled out for this one. Rookie cornerback Tay Gowan, according to the Eagles’ Week 12 status report that was released on Friday, is questionable for Week 12’s game.
On the Giants’ side, fullback Cullen Gillaspia (calf) wide receiver Sterling Shepard (quad), and tight end Kaden Smith (Knee) are all out for New York. Tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (quad) are doubtful. Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and wide receiver John Ross (quad) are both questionable.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ final inactive report will be released 90 minutes before kickoff. Bookmark this one, and watch the space below as we will update this post as soon as we get the information.
