Let the mind games begin! The New York Giants are running out of water after a pipe burst at their Philadelphia hotel just hours before their post-season rivalry showdown against the Eagles
Faulty plumbing left the New York Giants without water at their Center City Philadelphia hotel for several hours just hours before they face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC divisional round.
The unidentified hotel blamed a “broken pipe” for the morning’s water shortage, according to ESPN’s Giants reporter Jordan Raanan.
That issue was fixed within hours, however, with NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo saying the water was turned back on.

Fans on social media immediately sensed a conspiracy – with Philadelphia being notorious for making opposing teams’ stays as uncomfortable as possible.
Just last year, several Philadelphia restaurants turned down catering orders from the Houston Astros when they were battling the Phillies in the 2022 World Series.
Social media was quick to share their belief that the situation was suspicious. Many thought this looked like the plot of an episode of the sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Social media suspected a conspiracy and littered Twitter with references to “It’s Always Sunny…”
Others either gave the Eagles “props” for their sabotage or complained that the game was “fixed” in Philadelphia’s favor.
“Well played Philly,” one user wrote, while another put “broken pipes” in quotes.
Another user noted “THE FIX IS IN,” while another used the Philadelphia regional accent to call this incident “Woodergate.”
Other comments weren’t so light-hearted – believing this was deliberate sabotage
This is the third time the Giants have played the Eagles this season with two losses to their tally.
The first loss came at home and was one of the few games the Giants couldn’t hold at one result – falling 48-22 behind.
Their second meeting came in the final game of the season, with the win cementing Philadelphia’s spot as the NFC No. 1 and giving them a bye.
The Eagles have won their last two meetings this season by an aggregate score of 70-38
