The Eagles–Giants rivalry is a National Football League (NFL) rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants. The rivalry began in 1933 with the founding of the Eagles, and slowly strengthened when both teams came to relative prominence in the 1940s and 1950s. The two teams have played in the same division in the NFL every year since 1933. The ferocity of the rivalry can also be attributed to the geographic New York-Philadelphia rivalry, which is mirrored in Major League Baseball's Mets–Phillies rivalry and the National Hockey League's Flyers–Rangers rivalry. It is ranked by NFL Network as the number one rivalry of all-time[citation needed] and Sports Illustrated ranks it amongst the top ten NFL rivalries of all-time at number four,[2] and according to ESPN, it is one of the fiercest and most well-known rivalries in the football community.[3]

Notable rivalry moments[edit]

  • The two teams split their 2008 meetings. The Giants rallied to edge the Eagles in Philly 36-31, then the Eagles stymied New York's offense en route to a 20-14 win at Giants Stadium. They met again on January 11, 2009 in the 2008 NFC Divisional Playoffs at Giants Stadium, the fourth career playoff matchup between the two as #6 seed Philadelphia Eagles defeated the top-seeded New York Giants 23-11, leaving the series tied 2-2 in the playoffs; it was also the 11th time in the 2000s that the road team won.
  • On December 19, 2010, the Giants led the Eagles 31-10 with 7:28 left in the first game between the teams at New Meadowlands Stadium where first place in the NFC East was on the line. But the Eagles would rally to tie the score, then win the game on DeSean Jackson's 65 yard punt return for a touchdown with no time left on the clock for a shocking 38-31 victory.[4] The Elias Sports Bureau also believes that this is the first walk-off punt return in NFL history.[5] The Giants went on to miss the playoffs, despite finishing tied for first with the Eagles at 10-6,[6] and the Eagles lost their last two games.[7]
  • The Eagles on October 12, 2014 authored the first shutout in the series since a 20-0 loss in 1998, and their first shutout win in the series since 1996, winning 27-0. Quarterback Nick Foles threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns while he and three Eagles backs rushed for 203 yards (led by LeSean McCoy's 149 yards). The Giants failed on a fourth and goal attempt in the third quarter following a Foles interception; even worse, wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a season-ending injury on the play. (This would lead to an off-field episode in the rivalry, as the cover of the next morning's New York Daily News showed a cheering Eagles employee and the fallen Cruz under the headline "PHILTHY!", implying that the man was celebrating the injury rather than the result of the play.[8]) Eli Manning was held to 151 yards and backup Ryan Nassib connected for 60 yards.
  • On September 24, 2017, at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, kicker Jake Elliott booted a 61-yard field goal to beat the New York Giants with no time on the clock for the final play of the game, resulting in a 27–24 victory. Previously regarded as nothing more than a replacement kicker for injured Caleb Sturgis, the kick earned Elliot NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, cementing him as a strong kicking option for the 2017 Eagles. Elliot's kick set an Eagles franchise record for longest field goal, tied for the 7th-longest field goal in NFL history, and was the longest since November 2015. Elliot helped the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory later that season in Super Bowl LII.

Rivalry outside football[edit]

  • The 2006 film Invincible follows Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg) and his rise to playing for the Eagles. He crushes on a coworker, who, being from New York, is a Giants fan, and in his breakout game, the Eagles play the Giants when he recovers a muffed punt for a touchdown.
