The drive wasn’t without controversy, though. The Giants would get a first down on another catch by Shepard, where he would be taken down right at the first down marker and given the first by the referees. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson would wait to throw the challenge flag right as Jones would snap the ball for the next play, which stopped the Eagles from challenging the spot of the ball.
The Giants and Eagles both only have one win on the season, with the Eagles also having a tie. In spite of their losing records, both teams are still squarely in contention in the abysmal NFC East, with the leading Dallas Cowboys only having two wins on the season. Whoever wins this game will gain the advantage in the head to head record, for better or for worse.
