Dave Weinberg’s Giants-Eagles 2-Minute Drill
(Observations from the Eagles' 22-21 victory over the Giants)
Eagles' best number: 3 (takeaways by Eagles' defense)
Eagles' worst number: 0 (successful two-point conversions)
View from my living room:
I was more interested in watching Appalachian State's 45-17 win over Arkansas State. Go Mountaineers! (Class of '80).
1. Eagles running back Boston Scott (game-winning TD reception)
2. Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham (game-clinching strip sack)
3. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (2 TD passes, 80-yard run)
The Eagles' comeback was set up when Giants tight end Evan Engram dropped Jones' on-the-mark pass on third-and-7 with 2:09 left in regulation. If Engram catches the pass, the Giants likely win.
Eagles' best play
The Eagles were trailing 21-10 when Carson Wentz found wide receiver John Hightower open down the right sideline for a 59-yard completion that led to an Eagles' touchdown. It was the Eagles' longest pass play this season.
Eagles' worst play
Jones broke through a wide hole in the middle of the Eagles' defense and sprinted upfield for 80 yards before tripping and falling at the Eagles' 8-yard line.
Did you notice?
DeSean Jackson was a factor early in the game, but Travis Fulgham and John Hightower were clutch down the stretch. ... Lane Johnson was in and out of the lineup with a knee injury. ... Sua Opeta started at left guard for the Eagles. ... St. Augustine Prep graduate and Galloway Township native Austin Johnson had a big stop as a defensive tackle for the Giants. ... Wentz threw his league-high 10th interception. ... The Eagles were 0-for-2 on two-point conversions. ... Jake Elliott missed a 29-yard field goal.
Wentz on the fourth-quarter comeback: "When are backs are against the wall and we have to make plays, I'm going to give guys all the opportunity in the world to make them."
Jones on his 80-yard run and stumble: "I tried to run faster than I was running and I got caught up. We finished the drive and scored a touchdown. That was a relief."
