Giants defend smothers Eagles 13-0, get 2 picks


New York Giants defense stood tall to stop Jalen Hurts 3 times, and Philadelphia was held to an all-time low in points by holding them to 13-7 victory over the Eagles.

As the Giants (4-7), somewhat responded to Jason Garrett’s firing as offensive coordinator, Daniel Jones scored a one-yard touchdown on Chris Myarick of Philadelphia. Graham Gano also kicked field goals from 35 yards and 39 yards.


They were their worst foe, the Eagles (5-5) Their four turnovers included running back Boston Scott’s loss of a ball that Julian Love recovered at New York Forty with just 1:34 left.

In the final 1:01, there was one more opportunity for the Eagles. The Eagles had one more chance in the final 1:11. Hurts threw 3 passes and almost had Jalen Reynolds for a TD. Jalen was allowed to throw a sideline pass that the receiver took before it fell. Reagor was also unable to catch a pass at fourth-and-10.

Hurts had thrown five interceptions all season before finding Darnay Sherlock, Tae Crowder, and safety Xavier McKinney. Crowder was the most hurt, as he made a goal line pick in the second half.

Scott’s 1-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the fourth period brought Philadelphia within 10-7. But, Scott who is the Giants’ longest-serving TD holder had a big error later.

Gano also added his longer field goal to a possession which lasted 7 minutes before the Scott fumbled for the 13-7 lead.

Gano’s 35yarder from Gano in the opening quarter gave Giants a 10-0 lead. Former Browns coach Freddie Kitchens called plays.

Myarick played for Temple and caught his first career catch in the middle of the third quarter. This was enough to give Temple the win margin.

On Monday, the Giants defense did not do much against Tom Brady or the Bucs. However, it got its first shutout in the opening half since December 2018. It intercepted Hurts twice during the second period. Crowder scored a goal-line intercept on Hurts’ third-and-goal. Crowder made a goal-line interception on a third-and-goal from the 1.

Gano also failed to reach 51 yards and ended an 11-year winning streak.



Jason Kelce, Eagles’ center, missed the second quarter due to a knee injury but returned for the third. His 117th consecutive regular season start was his. On the final drive of the second half, two holding violations by Nate Herbig (backup) were applied. One that negated Scott’s 21-yard TD run was also nullified.

Giants saw Adoree Jackson (quad), and Holmes (chest), leave the game. Holmes was the first to intercept.
