The Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants are set to face off in the NFC divisional playoff game this weekend. The game to determine who moves on to the NFC Championship Game will be on Saturday at 8:15pm EST.

The Eagles, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, finished the regular season with a record of 14-3 and secured the NFC East division title. The Giants finished 9-7-1, good for 3rd in the NFC East but securing a Wild Card playoff berth, where they upset the Minnesota Vikings.

Both teams have had their ups and downs this season, but the Eagles come into the game as the favorites. They have a strong defense and a potent offense led by Hurts, his favorite target, wide receiver AJ Brown, and running back Miles Sanders. The Giants, however, have a solid defense of their own and will be looking to pull off the upset.

The key to the game for the Eagles will be to limit the Giants’ running game and put pressure on quarterback Daniel Jones. On the other hand, the Giants will need to find ways to score points against the Eagles’ defense and limit their turnovers.

The game is sure to be a hard-fought battle between two division rivals. The Eagles will be looking to start their playoff run hot after a first-round bye, while the Giants will be looking to pull off yet another upset to advance to the next round. With both teams bringing their best, it should be an exciting game to watch.
