Why New York Giants will win the NFC Divisional Round
That could work.
Don’t flip the ball. Rely on the run defense. Assume that your running back might be the best player on the field. Get your defense off the field with a series of third-down stops. Take the attitude that nobody believes in you because very few do.
All the pressure is on the other side of the field and this is where not being the 1 seed could be a huge plus. The Giants know they can win a playoff game.
Last year’s Eagle team was roughly ousted by Tampa Bay in the wild card round, and the 2020 version won just four games. This may be a young team with a ton of talent, but there’s also a sense of urgency as a number of key parts will soon be very expensive, free agents, or both.
That, and the Eagles were barely over the finishing kick themselves. Jalen Hurts was busted, the team lost two of their last three games and defeating the Giants in Week 18 wasn’t exactly pretty.
Considering things didn’t go so well in defeating the miserable Bears, it will be well over a month since Philly has been operating at peak efficiency.
Granted, the last major performance was a blowout over the Giants, but this might just be a different and more confident team coming back from Minneapolis.
Win the Turnover Battle – New York is 7-2 if they don’t give it away. Run well – it’s 5-0 as it tears away over 170 rushing yards. Stay inside until then, check the clock and…

Why Philadelphia Eagles will win the NFC Divisional Round
The 2022-2023 Philadelphia Eagles are not the 2022-2023 Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota was a nice team with a lot of guns, but it also had the second-worst defense in the NFL — it made Daniel Jones look like Steve Young last week
As good as Jones was, when he was right, he only threw 300 yards three times — twice against the Vikings and once against Detroit. In the Week 14 loss to the Eagles — he didn’t play in Week 18 — he was held for 169 yards but ran for a point.
But that’s not the real problem for the Giants — if Jones bombs away, it means the game in progress isn’t working. They’re 4-6 when they don’t rush for 130 yards, including two losses to the Eagles.
What was the real problem for Minnesota? It couldn’t get the D off the field. It was terrible on third downs – it allowed the Giants to convert 7-of-13 chances – and the O was seven minutes down on the ball.
ownership time is not the Big deal for the Eagles, but the third stops will be there. The Giants converted just 8 of 27 attempts in the two encounters and lost the battle for ball control in both losses.

What will happen, who will win the New York Giants at the Philadelphia Eagles NFC Divisional Round?
Give the Eagles a while to get started.
The timing will be a little off. All the rest and all the bumps and bruises will matter against a Giant team who – arguably given the moment – are delivering their most effective performance of the season.
Give him about half.
The Eagle running game, which destroys the Giant D for 253 yards in the first meeting, will take over early and then Jalen Hurts will start to find his rhythm.
The Giants will hang around, however.
They’re going to keep the score relatively low for a while, but two Eagle Scoring drives will start opening things up. Once again, New York will keep up and do what it takes to be in the game, but the run defense won’t be able to stop all Philly bits over the last two drives.
