Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes, Brandon Jacobs blasted in two more and the Giants did just enough to beat the Birds 36-31 and positioned themselves for another postseason run. The Eagles who rank 14th in the NFL in rushing defense at 104 ypg allowed, found themselves getting murdered up front and allowed 219 rushing yards to the division foe G Men. The consistent ability to run opened up the passing attack for Eli who was able to his find receivers all night.
The Eagles had the ball at their own 45 with 1:55 left, but B West couldnt convert a 3rd and 3 on a sweep to the otuside. And was then stopped on the following play by Chase Blackburn on fourth-and-1. Andy Reid has no power run game, and his play calling on 3rd and 3 acknowledges it. I’m really starting to get sick of tired of some of the moronic things he has been doing lately.
The Giants (8-1) are now two games ahead of the Redskins and three in front of the Eagles (5-4) and the Cowboys. New York is 3-0 against the division, the Eagles, 0-3.
