Trev’s Top 10 moments between the Giants and Eagles (Watch)
So they meet again, Monday night Oct 18, the Eastern Division leading New York Football Giants meet the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. You could call it the battle of the New Jersey Turnpike.
The hatred these two teams feel for each other has been well documented. In fact the NFL has even done a “Top Ten” show on the rivalry of which I am one of the commentators.
