    It was a game the Giants had to have and game the Eagles needed to clinch the NFC East. Both teams defenses came to play early in this one. The first three possessions of the ball game started with turnovers by each offense, twice by the Eagles. Jason Pierre-Paul had 3 sacks in the first quarter alone. He, and the rest of that Giant line, caused Tannehill to play off balance and uncomfortable for sometime in this ball game. He would eventually lead his team down the field in the 2nd quarter and put up the halfs only points when he found Jeremy Maclin in the end zone from 20 yards out. The Eagles would go into the break with a 7-0 lead. The second half was all running back Lesean McCoy. Having a huge day on the ground, McCoy had his nicest run of the year in this one. An 81 yard scamper in which he took the rock right off his centers left hip and was off to the races. That would make it 21-0 and put the game out of reach for the G-Men. The Eagles would go onto win this one 27-7.

    Next up for the Eagles are the Baltimore Ravens. The Eagles are now playing for playoff seeding so these next few games are as important as ever for them. And with the Ravens in a neck for neck race in the AFC North, that game should be a doozy. The Giants will travel to Cincinatti to take on the other team in that heated AFC race. Another big game as the Giants need the victory in these next three if they want any shot at the post season.


    Player of the Game:

    PHI - RB Lesean McCoy - 21 carries, 181 yards, 1 TD
