Giants Can’t Overcome Their Mistakes As They Fall To The Eagles

By Gary W. Marchese Jr.

Philadelphia, PA (Nov 22) – The New York Giants lost to the Philadelphia Eagles last night by the score of 27-17. It was a wild game, but a very good one. The Giants seemed to be dominated completely for the first half. The first half ended with the Giants blocking a field goal and that seemed to change some momentum.

The Eagles had a 16-3 lead at the half but if it was not for the Giants defense it could have been a lot worse. The Giants turned the ball over twice but the Eagles only got two field goals out of that.

The first play of the second half so Hobbs of the Eagles being hit hard and knocked out of the game, he had to leave on a board and play was stopped for several minutes. The Giants though after being dominated, you looked up and it was 16-10 in the third quarter. It did not seem possible but this became a game.

The Giants took a 17-16 lead in the fourth quarter and the big play of the game was with about four minutes left in the game the Giants stopped the Eagles on third and five but they were flagged for being off sides. The Eagles had third and one and the Giants stopped them again.

The Eagles went for it on fourth down and as Michael Vick bobbled the ball, somehow he was able to toss it to his running back as Osi Uminyeora just missed tipping the ball and it was ran 50 yards for a touchdown and a 22-17 lead for the Eagles. The Eagles went for the two-point conversion and got it.

The Giants still had a chance to go down the field, tie the game, and try to get it to overtime. The Giants next big play or mistake was when they had third and long and Manning scrambled out of the pocket and was able to run for a first down and about 10 extra yards. He decided to dive though and as he hit the ground and rolled over the ball popped loose before anyone touched him meaning it was a fumble. I really do not get that rule because if he would have went down and slid feet first, he would have been ruled down automatically with no one touching him. The Eagles got the ball and were able to kick a field goal to put the game away. The Giants had four turnovers once again, which if they are going to win against good teams cannot happen.

Manning was 20-33 for 147 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. One of the interceptions was on the last play of the game so that did not really count. Manning has been terrible this season at giving the ball away.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed the ball 12 times for 29 yards, Brandon Jacobs rushed the ball five times for 10 yards, and Manning rushed it twice for 22 yards. Hakeem Nicks was the leading receiver with six catches for 65 yards, Mario Manningham had three catches for 24 yards, and Derek Hagan had three catches for 10 yards.

Kevin Boss caught two passes for 22 yards, Brandon Jacobs had one big catch for 22 yards, and Travis Beckum caught a touchdown pass. Bear Pascoe and Duke Calhoun each caught a pass. Lawrence Tynes kicked a field goal.

The bottom line for the Giants is they are turning the ball over too much and they are not going to beat good teams especially on the road that way. The Giants will now take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at home and then the Washington Redskins at home before heading to Minnesota to take on a struggling Vikings team who fired their coach today.
