The New York Giants fell, 34-10, to the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday afternoon. The Giants have now lost four straight games and, at 4-11, are officially eliminated from the postseason. The Eagles are now 8-7 on the season and improved their playoff chances.
The Eagles had a dominant second half against the Giants, scoring 31 unanswered points in cruising to the 34-10 victory — and grabbing hold of the No. 7 seed in the NFC playoffs thanks to the Minnesota Vikings falling to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Philadelphia and New York were tied 3-3 at halftime as the Eagles struggled to move the ball in the first half, but the Eagles capitalized off plenty of Giants miscues in the second half to make it a rout. The Eagles scored on four consecutive possessions to open the second half, highlighted by a 3-yard touchdown run by Boston Scott to give Philadelphia the lead for good at 10-3 and a 4-yard catch for DeVonta Smith that put Philadelphia up 20-3 and in full command of the game.
The Giants’ offense was abysmal against the Eagles, starting with QB Jake Fromm in his three quarters of action before being benched for Mike Glennon.
Fromm was abysmal in his first career start, finishing 6 of 17 for 25 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the loss. The Giants finished with under 200 yards of offense.
