Giants vs. Eagles 2016 picks and predictions: Experts think New York will clinch playoffs - SBNation.com
Philadelphia looked great at the start of the season on the back of strong performances from rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, but they have been much worse in recent weeks. They have lost their last five games, including a crushing 27-26 defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in their last outing.
It hasn’t all been bad for Wentz, but the Eagles really need him to get a handle on his decision-making and accuracy. Wentz was known for the fact that he took several games to throw his first interception, but now he’s thrown 13 of them on the season, the same number of touchdowns he’s thrown.
The Giants can clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2011 with a win over the Eagles. Philadelphia is not in the running for a playoff spot, but it would be more than happy to play spoiler to a division rival. New York holds the top wild card spot and trails the Cowboys by two games in the NFC East.
