The Giants’ Divisional Round matchup vs. the Philadelphia Eagles brings some predictable storylines. But also, one that some may not have realized.
These squads squared off in Philly during Week 18. The Eagles won as New York rested its starters, and the Birds walked away with the NFC’s top playoff seed. Even with the Giants’ general lack of recent success against the Eagles, this might be exactly where Big Blue wants them.
Why is that? Well, facing top-seeded teams in the playoffs has been their specialty.
In 6 games against No. 1 seeds since the playoff restructuring in 1990, the Giants are a perfect 6-0.
