Let’s start off by saying the NY Giants and Brian Daboll had an unforgettable season in 2022. No one expected this team to make the playoffs – and not many people gave them a show to beat the Vikings in the Wild Card Round. Yup, ’22 was a whole lot of fun and it’s a campaign people will be talking about for a while. The ending to it? Not so much.

In the NFC Divisional Round, the G-Men traveled across state lines to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The birds stomped Big Blue, straight up. Philly punched its ticket to the NFC Championship Game with a 38-7 thrasing of Daboll’s men.

It marked the third loss for NY against Philly during the campaign, which you know still stings. While speaking to the media, Daboll let everyone know that the January loss in Philly is still on his mind.

Brian Daboll hasn’t forgotten about the postseason loss to the Eagles

Everything that could have gone wrong for the Giants in that January loss, well, it did. Things were so depressing that even Boston Scott recorded another rushing touchdown against the Giants. Come on, seriously?

Daniel Jones returned to his old form, finishing with 135 passing yards and an interception, which of course just had to be recorded by James Bradberry. Again, come on.

Giants fans were brought back to earth. After taking down the Vikings 31-24 the week before, with Jones looking like an MVP-caliber signal-caller in that win, a lot of folks had hopes that another upset would be on the way. Jalen Hurts and Co. had other ideas. Coach Dabes hasn’t forgotten about how things went down.

That’s why once the official schedule is released for the 2023 season, you already know he’ll be focused on the two matchups with the Eagles. Philly was the superior team in ’22, but that doesn’t mean history will repeat itself next fall. Daboll will do everything in his power to make sure revenge is served with a cheesesteak on the side.
