The New York Giants will wear custom cleats dedicated to different causes next Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Next Monday night, the New York Giants will travel to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles. At 2-10, Big Blue will be looking to snap an eight-game losing streak. They haven’t won a game since Sept. 29 when they ousted Washington 24-3 at home.
For the upcoming division matchup, the Giants will be altering their overall uniform a bit. Players will be wearing custom cleats, each dedicated to a different cause. It’s all a part of “My Cause My Cleats,” a campaign the NFL will be carrying out for their Week 14 slate of games.
A few examples for the Giants include Saquon Barkley‘s “22Q” cleats dedicated to the awareness of a rare genetic disease that his niece, Myra, possesses.
Markus Golden’s “Sickle Cell Foundation” cleats are dedicated to his cousin, Jonah, who passed away at 10 years old with the disease.
Also, Oshane Ximines, “MSP” cleats are dedicated to bringing awareness to domestic violence.
Not just the Giants, but hundreds of players from around the league will be wearing custom footwear this week to commemorate many different causes. After the games, players will have the opportunity to auction their respective cleats off. The money raised will be 100% donated to their cause.
The Giants are entering this game having just fallen to the Packers by a score of 31-13. Although the Eagles have been struggling, it’s never easy to come into Philly and oust this team. Especially, on a primetime stage.
