The Philadelphia Eagles have one last chance to find some momentum before heading into the playoffs. Winning the NFC East is a longshot now, needing to beat the Giants and have the Commanders upset the Cowboys, but even if they can't win the division, a dominant victory will give them some much-needed confidence.

Eagles vs. Giants key players to watch

Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts: Fair or not, when a talented team is stumbling, all eyes are on the quarterback. Jalen Hurts is still playing elite football, but his turnovers and lack of ability to make big plays in key moments has cost the Eagles at times this season. He needs to have a big game to give fans the confidence in him heading into the postseason.

New York Giants

Darius Slayton: The Giants wide receiver is coming off back-to-back strong performances, including a three-catch, 90 receiving yards, and one touchdown performance against the Eagles two weeks ago. He will be a key player in this matchup once again.

Eagles vs. Giants prediction and pick

I know the Eagles are in a funk and failed to cover against the Giants two weeks ago, but I truly think it's time to jump back on them in a game they have to win for any chance of winning the NFC East. In Week 16, they should have blown the Giants out of the water, outgaining them 6.3 yards per play to 4.9 yards per play.

The Giants still rank dead last in the NFL in Net Yards per Play at -1.3 and have had some luck go their way in recent games which led to them covering the spread. I'll bank on their luck running out on Sunday and the Eagles finally getting right before returning to the playoffs.
