The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to finish with a 10-6 record as they finish their season against the New York Giants even though it won’t be enough to get them to the playoffs.

The New York Giants won their third game in a row with a 37-27 victory over the St. Louis Rams to improve to 6-9, and quarterback Eli Manning put on a clinic with 391 yards and three touchdowns on 25-of-32 passing.
Running back Andre Williams rushed for 110 yards on 26 carries, but he is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury. However, starting running back Rashad Jennings will return after sitting out with an ankle injury.
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continued to shine with eight catches for 148 yards and two touchdowns, and he eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdown catches.
The Giants will look to finish strong for head coach Tom Coughlin as they face the Philadelphia Eagles, who were just eliminated from the playoffs after losing their third game in a row to the Washington Redskins.
Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez performed solidly throughout with 374 yards and two touchdowns with one interception on 37-of-50 passing. However, his interception came at an inopportune time as the Redskins were set up for their game-winning field goal.
Kicker Cody Parkey ultimately sunk the Eagles though as he missed two field goals, which was uncharacteristic for him as he had only missed one all season.
The Eagles will seek to make a statement by finishing strong despite their unfortunate playoff exit.
Prediction: Eagles 27, Giants 21
