Are you ready for a throw-down down I-95?
You better believe the fans of both the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles are ready to rock and roll!
The Giants (10-7-1) come rolling into Philadelphia (13-4) for a clash of not only bitter NFC East rivals, but with a date in the NFC Championship game at stake, perhaps against a team both Eagles and Giants fans agreed they hate: the Dallas Cowboys!
How are the fans reacting? Well there is plenty of back and forth going on. In fact Governor Phil Murphy said he was staying out of the fray between North Jersey (Giants) fans and South Jersey (Eagles) fans.
Legions of Eagles fans in South Jersey, hordes of Giants fans up north. 😱 What’s @GovMurphy to do? @johnsb01 https://t.co/rZthzAwjLB pic.twitter.com/1gc1uNpLLZ— njdotcom (@njdotcom) January 18, 2023
Better yet, during a preview of Saturday night’s game, which can be heard in full on Fox Sports New Jersey at 9 a.m. Saturday, Michael Cohen and Giants Beat Writer Charlotte Carroll were talking about the fan enthusiasm for the contest.
So what are the fans saying in social media circles? Let’s take a look!
