Things To Look For

It’s now “The Nick Foles Show” for the newly-crowned NFC East champions as the Philadelphia Eagles will now rely on their backup signal-caller to help lead the offense. Of course, the beauty of Doug Pederson’s club is that it has been well-balanced all season in terms the three key areas of the game. On the other hand, it’s been nothing short of disastrous for the New York Giants, who still haven’t won a divisional or conference game to date in ’17.
