Alrighty Philly fans, the day is finally upon us. Yes, it is game day! With that being said, it is time to take a look at their upcoming matchup against the New York Giants. This will be the 178th-time these two divisional rivals have met, with the series lead belonging to the Birds.
Even though the Birds have the all-time lead over the Giants, they have been playing catchup, especially with the series being split last year. This game is a relatively big one for the Eagles. With a win today, they are looking at only being a game and a half behind the Dallas Cowboys for the division crown and should secure a wildcard spot by the end of Week 12.
This game is already looking to be far in the Eagles' favor as the 'G-Men' will be without several key players. Here is the final injury report for both teams.
Eagles' Injury list
RB Jordan Howard- Out
CB Tay Gowan - Questionable
With the Gowan Injury not being as impactful, it so far seems like he will be good to go against the Giants. The Howard injury however presents itself as big loss to this team. Howard's downhill style of running has wore defenses out week after week and coming up against a depleted New York team, he could've had a career game. With that being said, the Birds have a solid running back room with the likes of Miles Sanders and Boston Scott who should be able to take care of business.
Giants' Injury list
DB Nate Ebner - Out
FB Cullen Gillaspia- Out
TE Kyle Rudolph - Out
WR Sterling Shepard - Out
WR Kadarius Toney- Out
TE Kaden Smith - Out
RB Saquan Barkley- Questionable
With many of their star players out for this game and other star players, like Linebacker Blake Martinez, out on IR, this Giants team is in extremely bad shape. Once again, this is shaping up to be the Eagles' game to lose. The Birds need to march on the depleted Giants team and take care of business.
