Running back D’Andre Swift rushed for 92 yards and a score while quarterback Jalen Hurts racked up 335 total yards of offense to lead the Birds. Rookie cornerback Kelee Ringo’s first career interception sealed the win as time expired.

First Quarter

TOUCHDOWN!

On the next play, the quarterback pushed his way into the end zone. Hurts set a new NFL record with his 15th rushing touchdown of the season, breaking Cam Newton’s record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season (14 in 2011). (Eagles 7 – Giants 0)

Second Quarter

Game Recall Giants vs Eagles : Field Goal! Elliott made his first field goal of the game, a 28-yard attempt, with 14:53 left in the first half. The 18-play drive was kept alive by a Dallas Goedert fourth-down conversion and a wild throw and catch from Hurts to Grant Calcaterra after a bad snap.

However, the Eagles were held to just three points after failing to convert in the red zone. Swift had a touchdown taken away after it was ruled his knee was down well before finding the end zone. (Eagles 10 – Giants 3)


TOUCHDOWN!

DEFENSE!

Haason Reddick flew home to take down Saquon Barkely on fourth-and-1. The Giants had converted on two fourth-and-1 plays on the drive.

A costly offside penalty on Jalen Carter on a punt allowed the Giants to extend the drive.
Field Goal! Elliott ended the half on a high note, drilling a 21-yard field goal as time expired.

The Eagles were driving but ran out of time as a delay of game penalty on the Giants stopped the clock after Hurts was tackled in bounds with 10 seconds left and no timeouts remaining. (Eagles 20 – Giants 3)

Third Quarter

Game Recall Giants vs Eagles : Boston Scott fumbled the football on the opening kickoff after running into Zaccheaus. The Giants took over in the red zone at the Eagles’ 14-yard line.

The Giants made the Eagles pay. Barkley went untouched into the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown rush with 13:41 remaining in the quarter.

All three plays on the 14-yard drive were rushes by the veteran. (Eagles 20 – Giants 10)
Hurts’ pass was intercepted by Jackson and taken back to the house for a 76-yard touchdown with 9 seconds left in the quarter.

A horse collar tackle penalty on Hurts allowed the Giants to attempt a two-point try from the 1-yard line, which was successful as Barkley took the ball out of the Wildcat formation and plowed into the end zone. (Eagles 20 – Giants 18)
Fourth Quarter

TOUCHDOWN!

Swift found the end zone, and this one counted! A nasty cut inside helped Swift evade two defenders as he leaped in for the score with 11:07 left in the game.

Hurts found A.J. Brown for a gain of 32 on third-and-20 to keep the drive going. Brown also caught a 12-yard pass just prior to the touchdown, his 100th reception of the season.

He is the first wide receiver in Eagles history to surpass the 100-catch plateau in a single season. (Eagles 27 – Giants 18)

DEFENSE!
