Dave Weinberg’s Eagles-Giants 2-Minute Drill
A quick look at the Eagles disappointing loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Eagles' best number: 208 (Eagles rushing yards)
Eagles' worst number: 4 (Eagles turnovers)
View from my living room: I took my wife to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway Saturday. It was infinitely more entertaining than the game.
1. Giants safety Xavier McKinney (1 intercepion, 2 pass defenses, team-high 8 tackles)
2. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (202 yards passing, 1 TD pass, no interceptions)
3. Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton (team-high 11 tackles, 3 tackles for loss)
Eagles' best play
For the first time ever, I can't think of one.
Eagles' worst play
Plenty of candidates for this one. Running back Boston Scott ruined the Eagles' chance for a comeback with a costly fumble late in the fourth quarter.
Despite Jalen Hurts' three interceptions and Scott's fumble, the Eagles still had a shot at pulling out a win. On fourth-and-10 from the Giants' 27-yard line, wide receiver Jalen Reagor let Hurts' pass slip through his hands at the goal line.
