Tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup features longtime NFC East rivals that have been struggling. The weather for the game is fitting given the circumstances.
The 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles host the 2-10 New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives, while the Giants are just trying to play out the season.
Fans will have to brave adverse conditions to watch this game. It has been raining all day in Philly and the wind is also a factor.

Philadelphia has won the last five meetings between these teams. The Eagles and Giants will also face off in Week 17 in New Jersey.
When New York takes the field tonight, it will do so with Eli Manning running the offense. Manning hasn’t played since being benched following a Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Rookie Daniel Jones has started the last 10 games for Big Blue, but he suffered a high ankle sprain in last weekend’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. Thus, Eli is back in the fold.
Catch Eagles-Giants at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.
