Notes

  • The Eagles acquired an additional second-round selection (No. 53 overall) as part of a trade that sent their 2018 first- and fourth-round selections to the Baltimore Ravens.
  • The Eagles traded their third-round selection (No. 88 overall) to the Detroit Lions in exchange for wide receiver Golden Tate.
  • The Eagles acquired an additional seventh-round selection in a 2017 trade that sent guard Allen Barbre to the Denver Broncos. This selection was later traded to the New England Patriots in exchange for the Patriots' seventh-round selection.
  • The Eagles traded their sixth-round selection (No. 208 overall) to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for wide receiver DeSean Jackson and Tampa's 2020 seventh-round selection.
  • The Eagles traded their first-round selection (No. 25 overall) as well as a fourth-round selection (No. 127 overall) and a sixth-round selection (No. 197 overall) to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for their first-round selection (No. 22 overall)
  • The Eagles traded their fifth-round selection (No. 163 overall) to the New England Patriots in exchange for a fifth-round selection (No. 167 overall) and a seventh-round selection (No. 246 overall)
  • The Eagles traded their seventh-round selection acquired from the New England Patriots (No. 246 overall) to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway.
  • As the result of a negative differential of free agent signings and departures that the Eagles experienced during the 2018 free agency period, the team is projected to receive three compensatory selections for the 2019 draft. Exact numbers of the selections from rounds 3–7 will be determined when compensatory selections are awarded at the NFL's annual spring owners' meetings.[8]

Game information

Week 14 featured the Eagles facing the rival New York Giants, lead by Eli Manning, who was taking over for an injured Daniel Jones. Following a scoreless first quarter, Manning opened the scoring with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Darius Slayton, giving New York a 7-0 lead. After the teams traded field goals, Manning would throw another touchdown pass to Slayton, this time from 55 yards, to build the Giants' lead to 17–3 before halftime. However, Philadelphia's defense would stifle Manning in the second half, forcing three-and-outs on four of six possessions and allowing just 30 yards total offense. The Eagles offense would step up and score 14 unanswered points over the final two quarters to force overtime. After the Eagles won the overtime coin toss, they drove down the field and won the game on Carson Wentz's second touchdown pass of the night to Zach Ertz. With the comeback win, the Eagles improved to 6–7 on the year. Further, the Eagles won their sixth straight against the Giants, and took the lead in the all-time series for the first time in franchise history. It also marked the first time since 2006 an Eagles-Giants game would go to overtime.
