The "Thursday Night Football" game today is a classic division rivalry matchup: Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants. The Eagles-Giants kickoff time is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday, October 11.

Neither team has played particularly well thus far in the 2018 NFL season. The Giants have a 1-4 record, including a heartbreaking loss to the Carolina Panthers last Sunday thanks to a successful 63-yard field goal in the game's final seconds.

Nonetheless, the Eagles are only 2-3 so far.
