Watch Thursday Night Football Live Streaming New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles Live Online Week 16 match will be kick off at Lincoln Financial Field Stadium, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, Thursday 22 December 2016 online, Time 08:25 ET and its broadcast CBS, ESPN, NFL Network Online.
The Eagles and Giants will renew a longstanding NFC East rivalry in primetime Thursday night And sure, the Birds probably wish they were in a better position, fighting for a playoff spot. But a victory over New York might still be sweet.
They could keep the Giants from clinching a trip to the postseason, end a five-game losing streak and move into next week’s season finale with a semblance of momentum.
Big Blue, meanwhile, has more concrete motivation. A win means the Giants are in the playoffs.

1) The band is back together
The Eagles’ original starting offensive line should be in place for the first time since Oct. 9 when they hit the field Thursday, with right tackle Lane Johnson returning from his 10-game suspension and Barbre’s hamstring injury healing. So, with the lineup steadied up front, can the Eagles move the ball against the Giants’ fearsome defense? Philly’s performance might hint at just how costly their offensive line absences were this season.
2) Big plays, big problems
The Eagles offense hasn’t produced enough plays of more than 25 yards this season and the defense has allowed too many. That’s been a storyline for much of this season, including the last time the team played the Giants — Philly outgained New York on the road but suffered a 28-23 loss because Big Blue made more explosive plays than the Birds.
3) Fighting for jobs
As Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins explained a couple weeks ago, NFL players are always under evaluation. So while Philly is out of the playoff hunt, several individuals have plenty at stake Thursday as they audition for roster spots and larger roles next season.
