Philadelphia Eagles (6-9) at New York Giants (6-9)  

Now here is a game that can directly influence New Orleans’ fate in the draft.  Both NFC East teams share the same record as the Saints at 6-9, with Philadelphia currently picking behind New Orleans at twelfth and New York slotted in at tenth.

There’s no telling how Philadelphia will play without head coach Chip Kelly, who was fired on Tuesday, and New York is reeling with an uncertain Tom Coughlin inching closer to retirement.

Who to root for:  New York, because they will pick ahead of the Saints if they have the same record while Philadelphia will pick behind the Saints if they have the same winning percentage.
