Don't tell anyone inside of the NY Giants locker room that this was a meaningless game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite the G-Men entering the contest with a 5-11 record and being eliminated from postseason contention, the guys in blue came out with passion and FIRE.

The same can't be said for the Eagles, who were embarrassed by the G-Men at MetLife Stadium in the 27-10 victory for the home team. Who in the heck saw that kind of a performance coming? We've got our takeaways from the action, as Big Blue was able to end the season on a high note by taking it to their NFC East rivals.

4. The Eagles should be ashamed of themselves for that showing

It's hard to believe that the Eagles had a chance to win the NFC East on Sunday. Yes, they needed the Commanders to upset the Cowboys, but Philly still needed to come out with some energy and put themselves in a position to try and win the division. Instead, the Eagles laid a massive egg and the Giants dominated.

You would have thought that Philly was the team with the 5-11 record and not the Giants. Leading up to kickoff, Nick Sirianni and Co. were dealing with plenty of injuries and things got even worse for them when A.J. Brown went down with a serious-looking knee injury early on. However, the Eagles came out flat and the Giants kept on landing punch after punch on them.

Jalen Hurts and the offense couldn't do much of anything - it got to the point where Hurts was sent to the bench late in the first half. Once this happened, Sirianni was throwing in the towel on the game and the division. Now, the Eagles will head to Tampa Bay as the No. 5 seed for the NFC Wild Card Round. After how they looked at MetLife, though, no one should feel confident in the Eagles to move on to the Divisional Round. This squad just looks lost right now.
