The NFL announced today that the Week 18 regular-season finale between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field will take place on Sunday, January 8, at 4:25 PM. The game will be televised on CBS.
The NFL kept open the possibility for teams to play either Saturday or Sunday during the final week of the regular season to ensure that the games in the nationally televised windows have playoff implications.
The Eagles clinch the NFC East division title and the No. 1 seed throughout the NFC playoffs with a win or a tie against the Giants. The Giants are locked into the No. 6 seed regardless of what happens against the Eagles.
The Eagles beat the Giants 48-22 at the Meadowlands on December 11.
