The Eagles defeated the Giants twice in the regular season – during Week 14 with a 48-22 win and during Week 18 with a 22-16 win to secure the No. 1 seed.

Even with the Giants coming out at the end of the season and quarterback Jalen Hurts still recovering from a shoulder sprain suffered in Week 15, the Eagles have the advantage after the bye week. Another thing to keep in mind: In that Week 14 game, the Eagles held Saquon Barkley back to just 28 rushing yards, his second-lowest performance of the season.
