The Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) beat the New York Giants (2-2) 19-17, last night at Lincoln Financial Field from Philadelphia, PA. What a heartbreaking loss for the New York Giants as Lawrence Tynes missed the potential game winning 54 yard field goal which felled short of the goal post at the end of the game. The blame obviously goes to Ramses Barden who was called for offensive pass interfernce on Nnamdi Asomugha which tooked them out of Lawrence Tynes's field goal range. This game was going tough for both teams and the Giants seem to always come away losing these big games. They have now lost 8 of their last 9 games against the Eagles. Game Stats: Passing Eli Manning had another good game despite making that bad iNT in the endzone in the 4th quarter. He went 24 for 42 with 309 passing yards, 2 touchdown passes and 1 INT. Rushing Ahmad Bradshaw made his return since he injured his neck back in week two. He had 13 carries for 39 rushing yards and caught 3 passes for 38 receiving yards. Andre Brown had no impact whatsoever, He had 5 carries for 14 rushing yards. Receiving Victor Cruz had a very good game by catching 9 passes for 109 receiving yards and scored a one touchdown. Dominek Hixon I thought did a good job in last night's game coming back from his concussion. He had 6 catches for 114 receiving yards. Ramses Barden screwed the Giants a possible win by holding onto Nnadmi Asomugha in the endzone for offensive pass interfernce which screwed Lawrence Tynes a good field goal range. He had 2 catches for 36 yards. Special Teams Lawerence Tynes went for 1 for 2 and he missed his first FG of the season which came in the end. Defense Osi Umenyiora and Chase Blackburn had one sack each. Offense/Defense The Giants offense had 20 first downs, had 366 total yards, went 2 for 13 on 3rd down conversions and went 2 for 4 in the redzone. The Giants defense allowed the Eagles to get 22 first downs, 422 total yards and almost allowed 200 yards on the ground. Final Thoughts This Giants defense was awful in the 2nd half, even though they only allowed 19 points and only allowed one touchdown. Personally, if Hakeem Nicks played in last night's game. They would've won that game.
