ESPN is giving fans the inside scoop on Sunday’s NFC playoff matchups, which means you need not check the site to find out who the winning teams are.
The network’s preview show, “ESPN Insider,” will air at 10 a.m.
ET/PT on Sunday.
Here’s a look at who will be playing for the NFC Championship:New York GiantsNew York’s offense is loaded with talent, with five first-round picks (two each from the Eagles and Steelers), a fifth-rounder (from the 49ers) and a second-rounder in 2018.
It’s hard to overstate how dangerous the offense is.
The Giants are led by quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who leads the league in yards after the catch.
They also have wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who is fourth in the league with 10 touchdowns and fifth in catches.
The defense is led by safety Reshad Jones and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, who are second in the NFL with 29 sacks.
The Giants are the only team with a winning record since 2007, and their playoff hopes will be tested if the team loses its playoff spot.
The Eagles and the Steelers are the favorites to win the NFC East, and they both have two picks in the top two of the first round.
The 49ers have the No. 1 pick and the New Orleans Saints have the Nos.
2 and 3 picks.
The Steelers, however, are expected to win their division, while the Eagles are expected not to make the playoffs, according to a report from ESPN’s Mike Garafolo.
The NFC South is expected to be a wild-card race, and the Eagles would like to finish higher than fourth in its division.
