Watch Eagles-Giants because it’s the Thursday Night Football game 2020 deserves

Good lord, this game is going to be brutal.

The NFC East is the worst division in fotball this year, and it’s not particularly close. The Cowboys are the best team in the division and have a 2-4 record, making it clear just how terrible things have been thus far.

Unfortunately, we’re getting an NFC East showdown in primetime tonight. and it’s exactly the kind of likely crapfest this awful year deserves. The Giants are 1-5 and have scored the third-fewest points in the NFL, while the Eagles are 1-4-1 but have surrendered the sixth-highest number of points. I’d say something’s gotta give, but it’s very possible this game ends up at 9-6 and no one’s happy.

If you can stomach it, watch anyways, because there’s a very real chance one of these two teams ends up being the NFC East’s representative for the playoffs, and that’s sort of sad and hilarious if it’s nothing else at all.
