The Eagles (7-7) are the NFC’s No. 8 seed, one spot away from qualifying for the playoffs.
A win against the Giants (4-10) this Sunday would boost their chances to around 40 percent.
They should win and easily cover.
Quarterback Jalen Hurts played one of his best games of the season last week — completing 77 percent of his passes for 296 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.
The offense, led by Hurts and running backs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, has rushed for more than 200 yards in five of the last seven games.
The Giants’ offense, which struggled even before Daniel Jones injured his neck, has not eclipsed 200 yards passing in six consecutive games.
It is unclear whether Coach Joe Judge will start Jake Fromm or Mike Glennon in Jones’s place.
Neither will be able to keep pace with the Eagles.
