The Giants Lose Second-Straight Game, Fall to Eagles, 27-17 by Derrel “Jazz” Johnson

The New York Giants had a 17-16 lead in the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles, but were unable to hold it, as the Eagles scored 11 unanswered to defeat the Giants 27-17.  Michael Vick threw for 258 yards, and the Giants only gained 208 yards on offense, as the Giants fell to 6-4.

The Eagles took the lead early on a four-yard Vick touchdown run to take a 7-0 lead.  The Eagles would add three field goals to one by the Giants, to take a 16-3 lead, but the Giants stormed back, with a two-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Travis Beckum after a 31-yard pass interference call put the Giants in the red zone to close the lead to 16-10.  After a Vick fumble recovered by Barry Cofield, the Giants scored on two plays, capped by a Manning touchdown pass to Derek Hagan for a 17-16 lead.  Unfortunately, this would be all of the scoring for the Giants.

On a crucial fourth and 1 play at the 50, Eagle running back LeSean McCoy busted the play for a 50-yard touchdown play that would give the Eagles the lead for good, as they converted a two-point conversion for a 24-17 lead.  The Giants would turn the ball over twice, once on a fumble by Manning, and the other on a interception, and the Eagles would add a field goal for the final score of 27-17.
