The Eagles defeated the Giants twice in the regular season – during Week 14 with a 48-22 win and during Week 18 with a 22-16 win to secure the top seed.

One more thing to consider: In that Week 14 game, the Eagles held running back Saquon Barkley to just 28 yards, his second-fewest production of the season.
