Eagles Down Giants on MNF, 27-7

Despite throwing three interceptions, quarterback Sam Bradford was able to lead the Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-7 victory over their NFC East rival, New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

To start the game, the Giants set the pace with Eli Manning tossing a 13-yard TD pass to Odell Beckham Jr. to put New York up 7-0 with 10:23 left in the first quarter. That score would be the Giant’s only one of the game, as the Eagles would score 27 straight points to close out the contest. Those points would come from a 32-yard TD pass from Bradford to Riley Cooper in the first quarter, a Nolan Carroll 17-yard pick six in the second quarter, a 12-yard rushing TD from DeMarco Murray in the third quarter, and 2 field goals from former Florida Gator Caleb Sturgis.

For New York, Eli Manning threw for his lowest passing total of the season finishing at 189 yards with one TD and 2 INTs. As a team, New York would only amass 247 total yards, including an abysmal 81 rushing yards, the largest chunk of that coming from Rashad Jennings’ 13 carries for 63 yards.

DeMarco Murray averaged almost five yards a carry for the Eagles last night, finishing with 22 carries for 109 yards and a TD. Riley Cooper led the Eagles’ receiving corps with 3 catches for 76 yards and a TD catch.

ESPN NFL analyst Steve Young discussed the Eagles offense.

“They’ve got to match up the ability that they’ve brought into town, with what Chip Kelly wants to play. If not, they don’t look like a team that’s going to go the distance.”

After last night’s game, the Eagles and Giants both stand at 3-3 on the season. The Eagles currently sit in first place in the NFC East, holding the tie breaker after last night’s win over the Giants. This week, Philadelphia takes on the Carolina Panthers in another prime time match up on Sunday Night Football, while the Giants face off against the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC East rivalry game dating back to 1960.
