It’s a playoff showdown in the NFC East, and the stakes are high.
The New York Giants, after Sunday’s big win over the Minnesota Vikings, head to Lincoln Financial Field Saturday night to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFC Divisional Playoff game, starting at 8:15 p.m.
The Eagles, who left last week after securing the top seed in the conference, are favored by 7.5 points, with odds bolstered by Typical sports book.
So, who do you like: Daniel Jones and the J-Men, or Galen Hurts and the Birds?
Which team will pull this one and head to the NFC Championship Game? Here are our staff predictions:
Martin Frank, Eagles writer, Delaware News-Journal
We can assume Jalen Hurts shoulder won’t be 100%, but we can also assume she’ll be a lot better than she was two weeks ago against the Giants. That will be enough for the Eagles, who will have their defensive hands complete with Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.
Prediction: Eagles 28, Giants 20
Galen Hurts:“There is a reward for me every week.” What the Eagles can do about it against the Giants
Art Stapleton, Giants writer, Bergen Record
The Giants are now a much better team than the one the Eagles destroyed. That would be close, but Philly is the top seed for a reason.
Prediction: Eagles 27, Giants 21

Tom McGurk, Sports Editor, Courier-Post
Better attack, better defense. Eli Manning wouldn’t be the only one dealing with too many birds at Link.
Prediction: Eagles 30, Giants 16
Bob Jordan, Sports Editor, Asbury Park Press
It would have been nice for the Giants to rest their top players at the end of the regular season against the Eagles, but the bill came due, with the Eagles spurring through their sweep of the Big Blue on the season.
Prediction: Eagles 21, Giants 17

Zach Miller, deputy sports editor, The Bergen Record
The team with the best player often wins the game. Saquon Barkley will be the best player on the field in this game.

Dave Rivera, Sports Editor, The Bergen Record
The third time is the charm of the Giants, who kept Jalen Hurts around long enough to cause an upset at The Link.
Prediction: Giants 27, Eagles 24
