PHILADELPHIA — On paper, the matchup was lopsided in favor of the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Compared to the New York Giants, they entered this NFC divisional round matchup as the better team on both sides of the ball. 

The Giants were a good story. The Eagles are contenders. And they proved it with a dominant 38-7 win Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field to set up a date with either the Dallas Cowboys or San Francisco 49ers next Sunday in the NFC championship game. 

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, still battling an injured throwing shoulder, accounted for three touchdowns, and the Philadelphia defense held a Giants offense that posted 31 points of its own last week in their wild-card win to a single touchdown.
