Giants-Eagles Week 18 Preview

The Giants will wrap up the 2022 regular season in Philadelphia this Sunday with a 4:25 p.m. kickoff against the Eagles.

With Sunday's win over the Colts, the Giants clinched their first playoff berth since 2016 and are now locked into the No. 6 seed in the NFC. As the No. 6 seed, the Giants are guaranteed to face off against either the Minnesota Vikings or San Francisco 49ers on Wild Card Weekend, depending on how Week 18 goes for those two teams.

On the other sideline, the Eagles still have a lot on the line heading into Week 18. Philadelphia has lost two consecutive games and will now need to win in the season finale in order to secure the No. 1 seed in the conference and a bye in the first round of the playoffs.

Here are notes and stats for players from both teams ahead of the regular season finale.
