The New York Giants (3-7) will visit the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday afternoon in what’s turned out to be an extremely important NFC East game. Who saw that coming a few weeks ago?
Opening the week, the Giants were listed as a 6-point road underdogs and little has changed in that regard. Opening business on Thursday, Big Blue is still listed at +5.5 at most sportsbooks.
