The Eagles are in the midst of a three-game losing streak heading into a Week 16 matchup with the Giants.

It's suddenly a must-win game, but Philly's offense will trudge on without star guard Landon Dickerson, who reportedly needs thumb surgery and will miss at least this game.

Eagles Injury News: Landon Dickerson to Have Thumb Surgery

Dickerson isn't expected to miss much time and could return as soon as Week 17 vs. the Cardinals. At the least, he should return in time for the playoffs.

Philadelphia certainly needs its offensive line at full strength. The Eagles haven't scored more than 19 points in any game during this losing streak and Jalen Hurts even publicly questioned his teammates' commitment.

It's a rough time for the offense, so Philly hopes Dickerson will be back to full strength sooner than later.

Every game moving forward should be treated as a must-win contest. Dickerson started every game last year and has started every game this season until now. His importance can't be overstated, though luckily the Eagles face a pitiful Giants team in Week 16.
