Chip Kelly a fit with Jets? 00:00:46
Marc Malusis and Jon Hein debate whether or not Chip Kelly would be a good fit with the Jets on their offensive staff.

The Eagles have denied the Jets' request to interview QB coach John DeFilippo for their offensive coordinator vacancy, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

DeFilippo finished his first season as Eagles QB coach following one year as the Browns' offensive coordinator and three years as the Raiders' QB coach.

DeFilippo worked with rookie quarterback Carson Wentz in 2016, as the former No. 2 pick threw for 3,782 yards (most among rookies), 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions (tied for ninth in the league).

While the New York Giants are still alive in the postseason and head to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round, their 2017 opponents became official on Sunday.

The Giants will have four road games on the West Coast next season, traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. 

In addition to home and road games against their division rivals, New York will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV: 

PHILADELPHIA -- Odell Beckham Jr. has spent all season battling the officials, so he certainly wasn't surprised by what he saw on Thursday. Once again, there were a series of inexplicable penalty calls and non-calls, and the Giants were pretty sure it all went against them.

"We know what it is over here," Beckham said after the Giants' 24-19 loss to the Eagles. "We know what it's always going to be. We're not looking for any calls. We've just got to play through it. That's the bottom line."

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV: 

PHILADELPHIA -- There were several common threads between the New York Giants' last two Super Bowl runs, but one of the most important ones was this: Eli Manning, in 2007 and 2011, played brilliantly when it mattered the most.

And that is absolutely not happening now.

There are reasons why, and it's not all Manning's fault, but that doesn't really matter as the Giants head (they hope) for their first playoff berth in five seasons. Manning, as the Giants' franchise quarterback, needs to find a way to rise above his team's problems and carry them on his shoulders, and he hasn't figured out how to do that with this team yet.

The Giants' 21-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night completed a clean sweep for the NFC East this weekend. All four teams won close ballgames to keep the order in the division for at least another week. The NFC East is the only one of the NFL's eight divisions where all four clubs have winning records.

First place Dallas (8-1, 2-1 in the division) won their eighth straight game, a thrilling 35-30 victory over the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 114 yards with two touchdowns, including the game-winning 32-yard score with nine seconds remaining and had 95 receiving yards with a touchdown.

Giants QB Eli Manning was very productive in New York's 28-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, going 22-for-36 for 257 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.

While the two interceptions put a damper on the quarterback's stats, neither were necessarily Manning's fault. The first interception came when Nolan Carroll ripped the ball out of Odell Beckham Jr.'s hands on the way to the ground, a call that appeared to be very close and was reviewed by the officials, but not overturned. The second interception occurred in the game's final two minutes, when Connor Barwin deflected a pass intended for Will Tye at the line of scrimmage and Jordan Hicks was able to make a sliding catch before the ball hit the turf.

Odell Beckham turns 24 years old on Saturday. He's used to playing football in, on and around his birthday. Needless to say, he usually plays pretty well, too.

Last year on Nov. 1, OBJ had eight catches for 130 yards with three touchdowns in the Giants' 52-49 loss to the Saints in New Orleans. In his rookie year of 2014, he hauled in eight passes for 156 yards in a 40-24 loss at home to Indianapolis on Nov. 3.

This year, Beckham is nearly recovered from a hip ailment, claiming he is "85 percent." The hip issue hasn't hampered him too much, however. He hasn't missed a game and has looked pretty normal. The bye week has certainly helped him convalesce and he's ready to take it to the hated Eagles.

GEICO SportsNite: Hackenberg 00:00:33
Christian Hackenberg discusses his performance in the Jets' 14-6 loss to the Eagles in the preseason finale.

Jets quarterback Bryce Petty threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson before injuring his shoulder, but a pair of big plays helped the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Jets 14-6 Thursday night.

Paul Turner returned a punt 71 yards for a touchdown and Ed Reynolds took an interception 90 yards for a score to help the Eagles (4-0) complete an undefeated preseason for the first time since 2012, when they finished 4-12 in Andy Reid's last season as coach.

Petty tossed a perfect strike down the right sideline that Anderson caught in stride after beating JaCorey Shepherd. But the second-year pro took a hard shot on the play and left with a shoulder injury. Petty didn't return even though the Jets said he was probable to come back.

Desperate for a franchise quarterback, the Philadelphia Eagles can get their man. Soon.

The Cleveland Browns will wait for their guy.

The Eagles acquired the No. 2 overall pick in next week's draft from Cleveland in exchange for five picks on Wednesday. The Browns are getting Philadelphia's first-round pick this year (No. 8), a third-round pick (No. 77) and fourth-rounder (No. 100), plus a first-rounder in 2017 and a fourth-rounder in 2018.

Two longtime NFC East rivals find themselves in the same predicament for the first time decades. Both the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are looking to hire a head coach at the same time since 1991, when both Buddy Ryan and Bill Parcells ended their tenures.

They were replaced by Rich Kotite and Ray Handley, respectively, and well, you know the rest. Both teams are hopeful they do better this time around. The usually stable Eagles are looking for their third coach in five years and the Giants are in the coaching search business for only the third time in 23 years.

While Tom Coughlin has been rumored to be on the hot seat, Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Eagles' controversial and innovative head coach, has been fired with one game left in the season.

As the Giants and Eagles gear up for their season finale on Sunday, Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie fired Kelly on Tuesday after a disappointing 6-9 season and failing to reach the postseason for the second straight season.

Coughlin, who has led the Giants to the playoffs just once since 2009, may be coaching his last game on Sunday, too, but the Giants would never dump him during the season. They'll at least wait until the season is over, on what is typically known as "Black Monday."

While the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles are both eliminated from the playoffs, their Week 17 matchup will determine who plays in London next season.

In addition to determining draft position, next week's regular-season finale will determine who plays the St. Louis Rams at Twickenham Stadium on Oct. 23, 2016 (Week 7).

Because NFL scheduling relies on how teams finish in the division, the Rams, who will finish third in the NFC West regardless how Week 17 shapes up, will play whichever team finishes in the same position in the NFC East standings next season. The Washington Redskins clinched the division and the Dallas Cowboys are locked in last place.

The Friday after Thanksgiving is always a laid-back day with very little excitement. This year, there is no excitement in the land of the Giants. They are officially out of the play off picture at 3-8 and are headed into NFL obscurity in a season where most teams are talking about how they can still grab a playoff spot.

The Giants will be practicing today in preparation for their trip to Jacksonville. They will head down to Florida tomorrow to play perhaps one of the NFL's most meaningless games of the year. FOX is only televising the game in the Jacksonville and New York markets, with former Giant David Diehl providing color commentary alongside a play-by-play man that I'm sure most Giant fans have never heard of, Justin Kutcher.

Although the scoreboard doesn't indicate it, the Giants completely dominated the first 27 minutes of the first half vs the Eagles this afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

K Josh Brown kicked four FGs (from 40, 44, 33 and 46 yards) as the Giants defense thoroughly throttled QB Michael Vick (6/9, 31 yards, 1 INT and 1 yard rushing), forcing him to leave the game with re-injured hamstring.

Rookie QB Matt Barkley relieved Vick right before the half and took the Eagles deep into Giants' territory on a 10-play drive that ended when Terrell Thomas forced Barkely to fumble. The ball was recovered by Jacquian Williams on the Giants' 12 yard line.

Myself and Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast kick around some of the changes and discuss some new faces coming into the NFC East this season...

Dallas Cowboys

Jimmy:?They did nothing in terms of outside free agents. The only guy that may see the field at all would be Justin Durant, who may start at SLB, but will be the first guy off the field in most sub-packages. There?s a sense that a bunch of their draft picks will see action right away. I don?t see it that way. Their first-round pick Travis Frederick should start at C from Day One, but aside from him, I?m not seeing how any of their other picks are going to have immediate impact roles as rookies.

That's right. Philadelphia PR DeSean Jackson's game-winning punt return against the Giants on December 19, 2010 has been voted The Greatest Play in NFL History by NFL.com's readers. This ultimate insult of a play beat out 49ers QB Steve Young's TD scramble vs the Vikings in 1988.

Like all Giant fans, this play will be lodged in my brain for the rest of my life. It was a play that never should have happened, as we all know. I was in the press box that day and what really burned my @$$ was having to endure some members of the Philly media, who were jumping up and down like a gaggle of grade school girls at a Justin Bieber concert. What a disgrace.

According to Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast, when it comes to DT Mike Patterson, the Eagles' loss is the Giants' gain.

The Giants have gone only 3-8 vs the Eagles since winning Super Bowl XLII and one of those wins came last year in Week 17 when Philly had one foot on the bus in Andy Reid's finale. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but considering the Giants have missed the playoffs three of the past four years buy a single game, it looms large as the difference....

A big part of the Eagles' dominance over the Giants has been the huge advantage Philly held over the Blue in the trenches. With Patterson switching sides, hopefully that will change. From Jimmy:

The latest dope form the cap-strapped NFC East as only our colleague Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast can tell it....

The Giants signed kicker Josh Brown, ending Lawrence Tynes? run with the Giants. He got two rings out of it, so good for him. Don?t be surprised if the Giants continue to address the kicker position in the draft. The guy that I would keep an eye on is Caleb Sturgis of Florida, who was absolutely murdering the ball at the East-West Shrine Game practices.

The Giants hosted Jasper Brinkley, but he left to go visit the Cardinals. I can?t say that I know anything about Brinkley?s game, but the overwhelming theme in reading up on him quickly is that he wouldn?t be much of an upgrade over Chase Blackburn, a player who shouldn?t have been starting in the NFL in the first place.

The Andy Reid era is over in Philadelphia after a decade and a half. The Eagles are pushing the restart button and hired Chip Kelly, the highly-successful, offensive-minded head coach from the University of Oregon to take over the reins.

The Eagles have been going through the exercise of cutting salaries for the past month. Currently, according to spotrac.com, they have a cap number of approximately $101 million thus far, which is around $20 million or so under the cap.

That is not an official number, btw. ?The cap limits have not been released as of yet (reported to be $122 million), and more moves are coming, so don't hold us to the penny on these. ?They do have money to spend, just put it that way. From Rueben Frank of CSNPhilly:

According to reports Jim Herrmann, the Giants' LB coach, is a candidate for the Philadelphia Eagles' DC job. Herrmann has been with the Giants since 2008 and has a long, distinguished resume as a defensive coach.

He both played coached at Michigan under the legendary Bo Schembechler. After a 20-year college career (the last nine as DC), he was hired by the Jets' Eric Mangini to handle the linebackers. When Mangini was booted by the Jets in 2008, Herrmann was hired by Tom Coughlin and the Giants.

Giant Rout Too Little, Too Late to Save Season

by Jon Wagner SNYGiants Columnist

After enduring yet another second half swoon under head coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants finally put forth the type of effort in their regular season finale that might have given them a chance to repeat as Super Bowl champions, had they only played with a similar sense of urgency more often this season.

Instead, a 42-7 dismantling of the lowly Philadelphia Eagles (4-12) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday left the Giants (9-7) with a solid 6-2 home record, but out of the NFC playoffs.

Fourth Quarter

-? The Bradshaw/Hynoski combination is still working well and the Giants may use the running game to finish off the Eagles.

- At this point more Giants fans are watching the Lions/Bears game than are watching this game. The Giants may not get the lucky breaks they were afforded last season. The late season lull that they have been accustomed to having has to change if they want to add more Super Bowls during this Eli era.

Kel Dansby: The Giants will give their final gutsy performance of the season against the Eagles. The pass rush will look elite against this Eagles offensive line & turnover prone Mike Vick. They'll collect the victory but fall short of the playoffs. Giants 27, Eagles 17

Sam Spiegelman: All season we've seen the Giants rise to the occasion when need be, but when their playoffs lives were at stake -- against Atlanta and Baltimore -- they failed to show. I expect the Giants to give it their all vs. Philly, but I'm afraid it's too late and the odds are stacked against them. Giants 23, Eagles 16

Jim Mancari: The Giants need to win to keep any slim hope of a playoff berth alive. I believe they will beat the Eagles, and in fact I believe they will beat the Eagles soundly. But I'm not confident that all the other teams that need to lose will all lose. It could happen, and the great thing about sports is that it can happen. The Giants just need to worry about themselves and hope for a little bit of luck. Giants 31, Eagles 17

The Giants (8-7) will attempt to keep their faint playoff hopes alive when they host their biggest nemesis - the 4-11 Philadelphia Eagles - today at MetLife Stadium.

What's at stake for the Giants.....they need to win and have Chicago, Minnesota and Dallas all lose in order to continue playing this season. A win would also give the Giants a winning season at 9-7 and recapture some of the pride they lost the second half of the season.

If Vick wants to be employed next year, first and foremost he needs to be healthy. The Eagles almost certainly will release him before they have to pay a dime of his $15.5 million 2013 salary.

The Eagles also have money to lose if Vick is seriously injured in the final game. Because of an injury clause in Vick?s contract, the team is on the hook for up to $3 million of Vick?s base salary next year if the quarterback can?t find another team to sign him. Any contract Vick would earn next year that called for less than $3 million because of an injury, the Eagles would owe the rest.
