The Giants played flip cup for the second week in a row, but this time it was on the field against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Listen to your team news NOW.

After their 41-35 overtime win in Washington last week, the Giants went viral when they were seen enjoying the victory in a Hoboken bar by playing flip cup.

Fast forward to their final game of the 2019 season and the celebrating continued. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones found veteran wide receiver Golden Tate in the endzone for a 20-yard touchdown pass during the third quarter and the Giants broke out a preplanned flip cup celebration.

This time Eli Manning wasn’t involved in the drinking game, instead standing on the sideline, but despite a disappointing season, the Giants have displayed a positive locker room atmosphere.

They rallied around Manning for a victory in what was likely his final start for Big Blue two weeks ago and the veteran quarterback didn't hesitate to celebrate with his successor after Jones led the Giants to their win in Washington.

After hearing about the team’s flip cup game last week, head coach Pat Shurmur said, “they should've invited me!"

The touchdown likely had a little extra meaning for Tate, who signed a four-year, $37.5 million contract with Big Blue in March. Tate joined the Giants after playing the second half of last season with the Eagles, even catching an important touchdown pass for Philly during their 16-15 playoff win in Chicago.

Ultimately Tate's touchdown wasn't enough to help the Giants beat Philly as Big Blue fell to the Eagles 34-17 and finished the 2019 season with a 4-12 record.
