Between two mediocre teams – at best – members of the worst division in the league (the NFC East), the image of the evening could have been this burlesque fall of Daniel Jones, the New York Giants quarterback, unable to finish his run mad to the opposing endzone, stumbling alone after 80 yards traveled. But a few actions later, the Giants had scored to regain the advantage over the Philadelphia Eagles (14-10, 39th) and store the bloopers without consequence the fall of their quarterback.
The Giants even believed they made the difference six minutes from time when Jones found Sterling Shepard for a new touchdown (21-10, 54th). But these Eagles, as irregular as they were unruly, still had resources. Carson Wentz first found Greg Ward to quickly reduce the score (21-16, 56th) after an offensive series of 78 yards in just 1’39. And then in the last minute after a new penalty against them, the Philadelphia players ended up finding the solution, via a spectacular reception from Boston Scott to regain, definitively, the advantage (22-21, 60th).
This result changes everything for the Eagles, who would have been bottom of the division in the event of a loss and now take the lead with two wins, four losses and a draw. The Dallas Cowboys (2 wins – 4 losses) to respond on Sunday for their match against Washington.
