EAGLES 22 – GIANTS 16

Even though they sat most of their starters including Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkely, the New York Giants gave the Philadelphia Eagles quiet a scare in the late stages of their NFC East battle in Philadelphia.

Sure the Eagles had the collateral of the Dallas Cowboys no-showing in Washington against the Commanders, but Davis Webb brought the G-Men back from a 19-0 deficit to give his team a shot at coming back in the final minute.

With Big Blue trailing 19-3 entering the fourth quarter, Davis guided the Giants on a nine-play, 59-yard drive that culminated in a 14-yard Davis touchdown run to widdle the deficit down to 19-9. After the Giants held the Eagles to a field goal, Davis tossed a 25-yard fade into the back of the end zone that much maligned wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught for a touchdown that cut the deficit down to 22-16.

For the Eagles, the victory cemented another NFC East title, the franchises 12th all-time, and first since 2019.

The Eagles will get a week off as the NFC’s number 1 seed.

The Giants will visit the Minnesota Vikings in the wild card round. It will be a rematch of a classic Week 16 game that saw the Vikings squeak by the Giants 27-24.
