    31 - 14

    East Rutherford, NJ - The New York Giants took on a substantial facelift in their roster, but did not change the way they compete. With a new QB under the helm of the offense, New York took on division rival Philadelphia to open their 2012 season. They continued their winning ways over the Eagles with a 31-14 victory in MetLife Stadium. QB Jason Campbell had a solid performance for Big Blue. He was 8 for 11 with 98 yards and a touchdown pass. Unfortunately for Campbell, his offensive line did not give him much time early on as he was sacked 4 total times, 3 of which came in the first half. New York running game continues to be huge, and with the loss of Brandon Jacobs, the Giants drafted rookie Corey Mays from the Citadel to fit his shoes. Mays did that, and more. In his first career game as a Giant, Mays won Player of the Game honors with his monumental performance. Mays rushed for 147 yards and 2 TDs on 15 attempts. His partner in the backfield, Bradshaw also scored a touchdown for Big Blue. The Giant defense also played very well, managing 4 sacks of their own. DTs Linval Joseph and Marvin Austin each recorded a sack, as well as ferocious DE Justin Tuck and newly acquired OLB Brandon Johnson. Filling in the shoes of Antrel Rolle, Chris Conte found his palce with an interception on the day, one that would seal any chance of a Philadelphia comeback. Next week, the Giants head south to Landover, MD to take on rival Washington in a much anticipated game.​
