Eagles Can’t Stop Manning; Fall to Giants 28-23

Philadelphia Eagles v New York Giants

Even with Eli Manning toying with Philadelphia’s secondary for much of the game, the Giants barely held off the Eagles on Sunday.

Manning threw for four touchdowns and New York’s defense had two interceptions and three stops on fourth downs to beat Philadelphia 28-23 on Sunday.

The Giants (5-3) won their third straight game, stopping the Eagles (4-4 after a 3-0 start) from the New York 17 after Manning was intercepted with less than two minutes to go.

“At the end of the game you have to go out there with confidence, confident that you are going to stop them,” said cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. “We have been playing well in games and when they get the ball down there and our backs are against the wall, we know we have to stand up.”

Eagles Hand Vikings First Loss to 2016; Top Minnesota 21-10

617523386

Josh Huff returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, Carson Wentz outplayed Sam Bradford and the Eagles beat Minnesota 21-10 on Sunday, handing the Vikings their first loss of the season.

The Eagles (4-2) snapped a two-game losing streak while the rested Vikings (5-1) hardly looked like an unbeaten team after having a bye.

Bradford returned to Philadelphia for the first time since his trade to Minnesota eight days before the season opener paved the way for Wentz to start. Bradford was 7-7 in his only season with the Eagles and won his first four starts for the Vikings.

But the Eagles pressured and harassed their former quarterback all game, sacked him six times, and forced his first three turnovers this season.
