The NFL wraps up a wild Week 14 with a big NFC East matchup on Monday Night Football. It might not be the prettiest of games, but the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants with plenty on the line for both teams. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET and airs on ESPN, with a live stream via WatchESPN.
The Eagles are 5-7 and with a win would move into a tie with the Cowboys atop the NFC East. Both teams are on track for a potentially deciding Week 16 matchup in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, the Giants are 2-10 and firmly in the hunt for the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Oh, and Eli Manning returns to the starting lineup for the first time since getting benched for the now injured Daniel Jones!
We’re here to give you a hand in preparation for the final game of Week 14, considering how to watch the game and what to watch throughout.
Game Time/TV channel/Streaming
It’s an 8:15 p.m. ET start, which means inactives will arrive at 6:45 p.m. The game will air on ESPN. If you prefer streaming, WatchESPN will have a live stream.
Fantasy football start/sit advice
Nobody is going to be starting Manning on Monday, and while the Eagles have struggled with inconsistency, Manning is just about done at this point in his career. He’s a decent 2-QB league start, but that’s about it.
Decent start: WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate, WR Sterling Shepard, K Aldrick Rojas, TE Dallas Goedert, K Jake Elliott, Eagles D/ST
Sit: TE Kaden Smith, Giants D/ST, QB Eli Manning
Pick against the spread
The Giants are a dumpster fire, the Eagles are doing everything they can to hand the Cowboys the NFC East. The Eagles are a nine-point favorite in this game at DraftKings Sportsbook, and I don’t see how anyone can justify laying more than a touchdown with this team against anybody. It’s not a great reason to bet on the Giants, but I can’t justify that kind of number. And wouldn’t we all love to see Eli Manning sink the Eagles playoff chances a little bit?
