Michael Strahan was all smiles in a photo he posted on social media Sunday morning prior to kickoff of the NFL’s Week 14 slate of games.
The Fox Sports analyst and popular television personality has been excited lately. His former team, the New York Giants, are currently tied with the Washington Football Team for first place in the NFC East division.
Strahan is a former defensive end who played his entire 15-year career for the New York Giants. In 2001, he set an NFL record for the most quarterback sacks in one season. That same year, he was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year and helped his team win Super Bowl XLII.
Strahan took to Twitter to send a happy message to his followers ahead of Sunday’s games. “All smiles on the set at @NFLonFOX! Fun and football!! Let’s go!” Strahan wrote.
Michael Strahan Cheering for the New York Giants to Make the Playoffs
Although the Giants sit at the number one spot in the NFC East now, that could very well change after this week. The Giants’ starting quarterback, Daniel Jones, is back after missing last week’s game with an injured hamstring. Back up Colt McCoy filled in for him last week in an upset win against the Seattle Seahawks. However, they are currently losing to Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 20-7.
The Washington Football Team is currently tied for first with New York at 5-7. They are facing a San Francisco 49ers team also sitting at 5-7. Despite working through some quarterback problems early in the season, they are currently trusting veteran Alex Smith under center. The Dallas Cowboys, also without their starting quarterback, are 3-9. They are playing a beat-up Cincinnati Bengals team who lost their starting quarterback, Joe Burrow, to a season-ending injury.
The 3-8-1 Eagles, third in the division, will face a red hot New Orleans Saints team on Sunday. Carson Wentz, the Eagles high-dollar quarterback, was recently benched for rookie Jalen Hurts.
The entire NFC East has struggled this year. Unless Strahan’s Giants make a miraculous comeback, it looks like they will be dropping to 5-8. As a result, Michael Strahan will no doubt be cheering for a loss from the Washinton Football Team later today.
No matter their record, the first-place team in the division will get a playoff birth. So as long as Washington loses, Strahan should still be all smiles after this week.
