The New York Giants defended their home turf on Sunday, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles, 13-7, at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants intercepted Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts three times. Dexter Lawrence forced a fumble from Giant-killing Philadelphia running back Boston Scott and Julian Love recovered at the Giants’ 37-yard line with 1:34 to play. That seemingly ended the game, but a quick three-and-out by the Giants gave Philadelphia another chance.
Love said Lawrence made a “great play” to cause the fumble and practically “tossed me the ball.”
The Eagles took over at their own 41-yard line with 1:11 to play. The Eagles reached the Giants’ 27-yard line, but a fourth-and-10 pass with :25 to play fell incomplete. Aaron Robinson broke up a pass intended for Jalen Reagor at the goal line.
Daniel Jones finished 19 of 30 for 202 yards and a touchdown. Jones also ran eight times for 31 yards. Saquon Barkley carried 13 times for 40 yards, most of that coming on a 32-yard run. Kenny Golladay had three receptions for 50 yards.
