Are the Philadelphia Eagles Facing a Must-Win Game Against the New York Giants?

+Read full article


On Sunday Night Football, the Philadelphia Eagles will face the New York Giants in one of the most emotional games you can imagine.

That’s because the Eagles are honoring and retiring the number of free safety Brian Dawkins, arguably the most popular Philadelphia athlete over the past couple of decades.

The emotions and intensity will be at an all-time high, which will bode well for the Eagles as they play a game that is pretty much a must-win.

Let’s look at the facts. The Eagles are 2-1, tied for first place in the NFC East. If they lose, they’ll be 2-2, facing games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, and New Orleans Saints. All four of those teams made the postseason last year, as did the Giants.

Sure, the Lions and Saints have looked awful at times this year, but they still have really good offenses and would be a dangerous matchup for the Eagles.

The Eagles need to win against the Giants to prove that they can play a complete game against a worthy opponent on a night where they honor one of the greatest players in team history. If they fall flat before a national audience, or even lose, they’re in big trouble this season.

That would mean they would be 2-2 facing a desperate 1-2 Steelers team. Nobody wants to face the Steelers on the road in a must-win game, especially when you can play the Giants, where you’ve won seven of the past eight, at home in a must-win game.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
