The Eagles and Giants are just a few hours away from kicking off an important Week 16 matchup at Lincoln Financial Field.

The matchup has lasting playoff ramifications and Philadelphia must take care of business with Jake Fromm making his first NFL start on the road.

The Eagles 53 man roster looks a little different this week with Andre Dillard, Ryan Kerrigan, and Shaun Bradley on the COVID-19 list.
