Eagles' wings were clipped by the Giants, 27-17

Philadelphia- The Eagles' secondary gave up some huge plays against the Giants, as they suffered another key loss in the division.

Coming off a bye week, the Eagles' defense looked a bit sloppy in the first half. A couple of bad penalties on the defensive side caused the Eagles to dig themselves in a hole against the Giants. A few plays later, Daniel Jones called his own number and scored a touchdown to strike first against the Eagles. The Eagles responded with a field goal to cut the lead to four late in the first quarter, 7-3.

The Eagles' defense seem to struggle with getting to Jones and making it hard for him to find his receivers, as well as stopping the run in the second quarter. The Eagles gave up 218 total yards to New York in the first half. At the end of the half, the Eagles had to dig themselves out of a 14-3 hole.

In the second half, the Eagles offense finally scored a touchdown, as Boston Scott scored on a 56-yard run early in the third. The Eagles went for the two-point conversion, which was successful to make it a three point game, 14-11. On the ensuing drive, the Giants went down the field and in a blink of eye scored a touchdown to extend their lead 21-11. Wentz answered the Giants' touchdown with their own, as Corey Clement scored on a five yard touchdown run. Instead of kicking a field goal, to cut the Giants' lead to three, the Eagles went for the two-point conversion, which they did not convert, 21-17.

Midway in the fourth, the Eagles had a productive drive going, but came away with nothing. The Giants tacked on a field goal late in the quarter to ice the game.

Wentz finished with 208 yards
