View from my living room: I got much more enjoyment out of watching my two oldest grandsons opening presents from Santa this weekend.
1. Eagles tackle Lane Johnson (first career touchdown)
2. Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton (pick six)
3. Eagles running back Boston Scott (eighth career TD vs. Giants)
Eagles' best play
Tackle Lane Johnson snuck into the end zone and caught a 5-yard pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter for his first career TD. It was the first touchdown catch by an Eagles offensive lineman since Todd Herremans at Dallas on Dec. 12, 2010.
Eagles' worst play
The offense was atrocious in the first half, starting when Kenny Gainwell fumbled the opening kickoff. Hurts also had a fumble in the first quarter.
The game essentially ended in the third quarter, when Boston Scott capped the Eagles' opening drive of the second half with a TD that put the Eagles ahead 10-3.
