PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants have kicked off at Lincoln Financial Field as the crowd goes wild for the fifth all-time meeting between the Eagles and Giants in the postseason. New York enters this game as an underdog, but has defied the odds all season en route to the division round.
Daniel Jones put up arguably the best performance of his career, completing 24 of 35 passes for 301 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions (115.7 rating), as New York racked up a road season-high 31 points in its wild card game. victory over the Vikings. Jones set the franchise playoff record for most rushing yards with a quarterback (78), becoming just the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 300 yards and rush for more than 75 yards in a playoff game . Jones was also the first player in league history with more than 300 passing yards, more than 70 rushing yards and more than two touchdowns in a playoff game.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is coming off a two week rest on that sprained shoulder, but was not on the injury report all week. He is expected to be ready to go as the healthy Eagles only have one starter (slot cornerback Avonte Maddox). The Eagles won both matchups, 48-22 in Week 14 and 22-16 in Week 18, though New York rested its starters in Week 18 as it was already tied in the No. 6 seed in the NFC.
