Eli Manning, who vowed to never return to Philadelphia after retirement, will be in attendance on Saturday night when the Giants face the Eagles
The Dallas Cowboys rolled over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last night in the final Wild Card game of the 2022-23 NFL season.
Dak Prescott’s five touchdown night led the Cowboys to a 31-14 victory over the Bucs. Dallas will now play the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round, while Philadelphia will host the sixth seeded New York Giants on Saturday night.

Eli Manning on Attending Giants-Eagles Game
During last night’s Manning Cast, Eli Manning talked about his former team heading to Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night and how he plans on attending after stating that he would never go back to Philly for a football game upon retirement.
“I said when I retired that I would never go back to a football game at Philly, but I think I have to break my promise (for Giants-Eagles). I think I have to go there. I can’t wait to see the amount of double birds I get. Could break a record.” – Eli Manning
Manning has a 10-21 record against the Eagles and lost the last six games he played against Philly from December 22, 2016 to December 9, 2019.
Of course, winning two Super Bowls with the Giants trumps all of the regular season losses but regardless, Eagles fans aren’t ones to hold back when an arch rival returns to Philly in any capacity.
At this point in Manning’s career, I think it’s safe to say that Eagles fans have a love-hate relationship with Manning, and any shit talk he receives is just a badge of honor after playing in the NFC East for 15 years.
