The Giants vs Eagles live stream is scheduled to start at 8:20 p.m. ET / 5:20 p.m. PT today (Thursday, October 22) on Fox, NFL Network, and Amazon Prime.
It's the first game of week 7 of the NFL 2020-21 season.

Tonight's Giants vs Eagles live stream is a battle of the teams that nobody wants to bet on or root for anymore. Each team boasts just a single win at the opening of week seven of NFL play. That win came more recently for the Giants, with a one-point victory against Washington last week, so New York may be entering tonight's game with a bit more confidence.

The Eagles, instead, come off a disappointing loss to the Baltimore Ravens after a thwarted two-point conversion that could have pushed that NFL live stream into overtime. Still oddsmakers favor the Eagles, with BetMGM putting them up six points.

That's more a testament to how poorly the Giants have been playing, however. New York's scoring has been anemic. The team is averaging just 16.8 points per game this season, vs. 23.5 for Philadelphia. And Giant's quarterback Daniel Jones is one of the weaker in the league. He's thrown just three touchdowns, vs. eight for the Eagles' Carson Wentz. Jones has run in another three TDs, which actually makes him the team's leading rusher this season. But that in itself is a testament to how weak the Giant's ground game has been.

Not that the Giants are taking on a powerhouse in Philadelphia. The Eagles' defense isn't terribly hard to score against. It's been allowing 229.7 passing yards per game, which puts it 12th in the league. Nor have the Eagles defended their quarterback well. Poor Carson Wentz has been sacked more than any other quarterback this season, a whopping 25 times. It's a miracle he hasn't sustained a serious injury like the one that took out Cowboys' quarterback Dak Prescott for the rest of the season. Having tossed Washington's QB three times last week, the Giants defense will be looking to help Wentz bolster his dubious distinction.

A question mark hangs over the Eagles' rushing game, as their top yard maker, running back Miles Sanders, sustained a knee injury in last week's game against the Ravens. If Sanders can't make it, Boston Scott will lead the Eagles’ rushing attack. Ranked 12th overall in the league, he's not a bad replacement.

With the teams fairly well marched, this could be a suspenseful game that goes down to the wire. Each team has shown the ability to surge at the end when needed.

The home advantage may mean something this time, since the Eagles will have some real live fans cheering at Lincoln Financial Field. The city is allowing a judicious 7,500 people (including players and personnel) into a stadium that could seat over 69,000. The Eagles will also have the benefit of historical precedent. They have won 11 of their last 12 games against the Giants.

How to watch Giants vs Eagles live stream with a VPN

Football fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you can't get FOX, Amazon Prime or the NFL Network where you are for some strange reason — and you can't watch the Giants vs Eagles live streams you want, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for.
