When the New York Giants (6-9) and Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) met the first time this season, they were two teams going in opposite directions. They still are, but the roles have been reversed. The Giants are looking to end their campaign on a four-game winning streak, while the Eagles are limping to the finish line, hoping to snap a three-game losing streak.
The New York Giants (4-9) were finally able to shake the dry spell that saw the team drop its last seven contests. After last week’s disappointment against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Big Blue kept the pedal to the metal in the 36-7 win over the hapless Tennessee Titans (2-12).
The New York Football Giants (3-2) travel down to the City of Brotherly Love to battle the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) in a Sunday Night Football match-up.

The New York Giants unleashed their newest weapon, Odell Beckham, Jr., and the rookie speedster was certainly worth the wait.
