The 1-6 New York Giants come to Philadelphia to face the 3-4 Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Giants enter the game with an eight-game road-losing streak.
The Eagles enter the game with a nine-game home losing streak.

The Giants won their last contest, easily beating the Minnesota Vikings on perhaps the worst matchup in the history of Monday Night Football. The Giants boast the ranked 22nd offense and the 19th ranked defense. Don’t expect the Giants to utilize the rushing game much with their 4th and 5th options.
The Eagles lost to the Cowboys to fall to 3-4, and one game back in the NFC. The Eagles are the NFL’s 3rd ranked offense and rank last in defense. Despite the defensive ranking, the defense has shown progress and continues to improve.
