The Eagles play the Giants today at the Linc.
And the last time they played at MetLife the Birds won 48-22.
Defensive end Brandon Graham had three quarterback sacks that helped the Eagles win for the 12th time in 13 games.
“Truly, it’s a blessing and you have to appreciate every minute of it,” Graham said later at his MetLife Stadium locker after the 48-22 victory over the Giants.
“Here I am in my 13th season doing this and we’re winning and the chemistry, man, I’m telling you, it’s amazing here. We’re all having so much fun and everybody wants each other to have success and do well and that just doesn’t happen on every team.
“It’s special here with us. You have to enjoy all of it. It’s special.”
One of the most beloved Eagles ever, Graham’s place in franchise history was already secured before he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Week 2 of the 2021 season. The defense sorely missed Graham, as did the locker room, but coordinator Jonathan Gannon schemed around the loss of pass-rush effectiveness without Graham and the Eagles kept the score down and the team rallied in the second half of the season to reach the postseason.
