The Eagles Won Against the Giants
The Philadelphia Eagles won against the New York Giants 27-7 on Monday night as Sam Bradford bailed out, making Eli Manning miserable. DeMarco Murray ran for about 109 yards, scoring a touchdown; while Nolan Carroll II scored from Manning’s two interceptions.
This might just be Murray’s best game since he joined the Eagles after having a record-breaking season with the Dallas. This professional player led the NFL last year, breaking the single-season club record of Emmitt Smith; but, struggled with Philadelphia as he enters the game with 130 yards this season.
Murray said, “We have a long way to go.”
What Happened to the Game of the Giants?
When asked to comment on the defense of Philadelphia, Bradford said, “All the credit goes to them. It seemed like every time we needed a stop or a big play, they created a lot of turnovers tonight. That always gives us a lot of momentum and always gives us juice.”
Bradford threw 280 yard pass, as well as a 32-yard touchdown pass to Riley Cooper; however, he intercepted 3 times in an effort to keep Giants in the game. The Giants had zero points from the turnovers.
Tom Coughlin, the coach of New York Giants, said, “We were stagnant. They did more with their opportunities than we did.”
The Much-Needed Win of the Eagles
The Eagles’ win improved their standing in the season to 3-3. Though it may not sound that impressive, but this actually puts them in the driver’s seat of this division title. Only few would have guessed that they’d be in this position after starting the season with only 1-3.
Neither team, however, looked sharp during the game as they have made seven turnovers and accumulated 21 penalties in total.
“That’s bad football,” says Coughlin. His team played a no-huddle offense during the game.
