. . New York Giants. . team. 31.

The Eagles will most certainly want to widen their narrow all-time margin versus the hated New York Giants.

Believe it or not, the only of their divisional rivals that the Eagles hold a winning record over is the New York Giants. Yes, as sad as it is to say, they have some ground to make up on the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Commanders.

178 meetings have led to an 89-87-2 lead in the series for our beloved Birds, and the recent years have been the best. Since 2011, Philadelphia has had its way, winning 16 of the 21 meetings.

When these two age-old rivals meet, the records don’t matter. Strangely, the Giants have been woefully bad during the last two seasons, but Philly hasn’t been able to complete a season sweep. Their loss at MetLife Stadium last year was truly heartbreaking, but revenge was sweet as the last meeting led to a 34-10 win. Jalen Hurts threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns in that one.

The Giants are in transition… again. They have a new head coach. They’re expected to compete for the right to stay out of the NFC East’s cellar. The Eagles will be favored in both meetings, in Week 14 and Week 18. They’re the better team. They’re the better-run franchise with the better roster.

We’re calling it now. The city of Philadelphia expects a season sweep, and they should see one. With extra firepower on both sides of the ball, these are two games that the Birds should win easily.
