Ahead of this weekends big NFC Divisional round clash between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants, we’re taking a look at the squad values of the two teams. 

They’ve already met on two occasions so far this season, with the high-flying Eagles winning both games. The first meeting ended in 48-22, and the second on the season finale was a 22-16 win in favour of the Eagles once again.

Can the Giants get a third-time lucky victory and advance to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 2011?

It may be a hard task for Brian Daboll’s Giants, with the Eagles holding a 14-3 record for the season. However the sides have met four times in the playoffs before, with both of them having two wins each.

Eagles Wage Bill $25m More Than Giants’

According to Spotrac, the Eagles active contracts equate to around $193 million, with only two players having a higher wage than the average $10 million NFL salary, bringing their cost down quite significantly compared to other NFL teams.

  1. CB – Darius Slay ($17m)
  2. RT – Lane Johnson ($14.1m)
  3. C – Jason Kelce ($1.5m)
  4. DE – Brandon Graham ($1.5m)
  5. WR – A.J. Brown ($1m)
  6. LT –  Jordan Mailata ($1m)
  7. OLB – Haason Reddick ($1m)

With the Eagles active roster being fairly big (50), this makes paying more players a bigger wage a lot harder, which explains why they only have two players on the roster who earn more than the average player in the league.

Spotrac also say that the Giants have a wage bill of up to $168 million, with 42 active contracts making up the figure, and unlike the Eagles, they do have a few more players earning more than the average earners in the league.

  1. DE – Leonard Williams ($18m)
  2. WR – Kenny Golladay ($13.25m)
  3. CB – Adoree’ Jackson ($11m)
  4. DT – Dexter Lawrence ($12.4m)
  5. LT – Andrew Thomas ($5m)
  6. G – Mark Glowinski ($4.65m)
  7. QB – Tyrod Taylor ($5.45m)

Franchise Total Value

The total value of NFL franchises calculate as some of the highest sums in all of world sport, and according to Forbes, the Eagles are worth around $4.9 billion. Meanwhile the Giants are worth more at $6 billion.

With the Super Bowl just around the corner, both teams aren’t really expected to win at all. However, BetOnline does offer odds of +525 for the Eagles to go all the way. However, the Giants are the least favourite to win Super Bowl LVII at +2800 on BetOnline.
