Eli Manning is back for the Giants (2-10) on Monday night, but his opponent, the Eagles, are the team with a lot on the line.
While Philadelphia (5-7) should be taking advantage of a down year across the NFC East, the Eagles’ own struggles put them a half game behind the Cowboys for the division lead. A win at home against New York would force a tie for the top spot.

Manning lost his starting job after Week 2, but an ankle injury to his replacement, Daniel Jones, forces the 39-year-old back into action, potentially for the rest of the year.
His return comes against a rival that has been a thorn in his side for years. Since becoming a starter in 2004, Manning is 10-22 against the Eagles, including an 0-2 record in the playoffs.

End third quarter: Giants 17, Eagles 10
10:29 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, Eagles. Philadelphia gets a score it desperately needed late in the third quarter with a 10-play drive that lasts just short of six minutes. Running back Boston Scott finishes it off from 2 yards out. Giants 17, Eagles 10.
10:05 p.m.: Both teams go three-and-out to open the second half.

9:17 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Giants. Another big catch from Slayton moved New York down the field, and Aldrick Rosas nails a 34-yarder to extend the lead. Giants 10, Eagles 3.
9:10 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Eagles. Philadelphia scored a touchdown from the 9-yard line, but it was nullified by a holding penalty. Instead, a 34-yard field goal a few plays later. Giants 7, Eagles 3.

End first quarter: Eagles 0, Giants 0
8:54 p.m.: It’s raining, but I’m not sure that fully explains the level of play on display tonight. There is almost certainly a better use of your time than watching the rest of this game.
8:39 p.m.: New York does nothing with the strong field position. Three-and-out.
8:32 p.m.: FUMBLE, Eagles. Philadelphia went for it on fourth-and-1 just shy of midfield. Wentz tries to sneak and gets stood up, then the ball apparently comes out toward the end of the play. Likely would’ve been a turnover on downs anyway.
8:27 p.m.: Manning misses Barkley on a third-and-7 checkdown. Looked like he probably had enough room for a first down.
8:22 p.m.: A sack derails Philadelphia’s drive. It’s time for Eli.
8:18 p.m.: The Eagles begin at the 25 after a touchback.
7:07 p.m.: Inactives:
