Christmas Day Football: Giants at Eagles Open Thread

The Philadelphia Eagles will host the New York Giants on Christmas Day in Week 16. Come chat with us during the game!

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Week 16 of the 2023 NFL regular season on Christmas Day!

In a critical NFC East matchup, the Philadelphia Eagles have a chance to move past the Dallas Cowboys for sole possession of the division lead with a win over the New York Giants. This is a game they have to have and it is against a pretty bad Giants team, so we should expect the best the Eagles can offer this afternoon.

Kickoff is set for Monday, Dec. 25, 2023 at 2:30 p.m. Mile High time at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will air on FOX.

My Prediction

In partnership with DraftKings Sportsbook, we will get to do a lot of picks this year. Straight-up, against the spread, and over/under picks. For better or for worse, I love taking the cover on double-digit spreads between divisional rivals. I still think the Eagles win and could even blow out the Giants, but I think the chances of a closer type game is higher when teams know each other as well as they do when divisional rivals. So give me the Giants to cover, but the Eagles to win here this afternoon.
