Eagles Squeeze By Giants in TNF battle
The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants, 22-21 on Thursday Night Football.
The Eagles have improved to 2-4-1 on the season after rallying to defeat the Giants late in the fourth quarter.
The Giants fall to 1-6 on the season.
The Giants continue their offensive struggles as they totaled only 325 yards, and failed to protect Daniel Jones in the backfield once again.
Carson Wentz totaled 359 yards passing yards, with two touchdowns and one interception while adding 15 rushing yards and a touchdown in the division win.
The Giants had this game ultimately won late in the fourth quarter when Daniel Jones threw a perfect pass on 3rd-and-7 to a wide open Evan Engram.
Coach Joe Judge couldn’t have asked for a better throw from his quarterback that would have given the Giants their second consecutive division win.
Unfortunately, Engram dropped the perfect pass to seal the Giants win, sending New York’s punt unit onto the field.
The Eagles had zero timeouts, the catch would’ve ended the game.
Instead, the Eagles took over with 2:14 remaining in the game.
Carson Wentz then led the Eagles with a 71-yard touchdown drive to give the Eagles to the lead with just 40 seconds to play.
The Eagles failed the two-point conversion attempt after Wentz connected with running back Boston Scott on an 18-yard touchdown reception.
The Giants failed to string together anything on offense, and the Eagles end the game with a strip sack on Jones, recovering the football.
After a well put together 97-yard drive by Daniel Jones and the Giant offense, the game almost seemed out of reach for the Eagles as they trailed 21-10 with just under seven minutes left.
Instead, Wentz rallied this team from a 21-10 deficit with little left to play and willed the Eagles to a victory.
Philadelphia is now in first place in the NFC East thanks to Wentz, and the Eagles offensive effort.
