The Eagles rest the starters in the regular-season finale but come close to another victory.
If everything works out as many of us are expecting, it seems likely that the Philadelphia Eagles will reach Week 18 and have nothing significant to play for upon arrival. They will have locked up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. A win or loss in the regular-season finale won’t change that, so we expect to see Jason Kelce take one snap to keep his streak of consecutive starts intact before handing the ball to Cam Jurgens and the second string to close this one out.
The Giants, on the other hand, probably will have something on the line in this one. They could be playing for improved seeding. Heck, with the way they’ve looked at times, they may still be in search of a playoff berth.
Something tells us they get in and that they squeak past an Eagles team that, at this point, has its sights set on winning two more games in January and football’s biggest game, one played during the second Sunday in February.
Final regular-season record (2022-2023): 15 wins, two losses, and the top seed in the National Football Conference
