Giants-Eagles analysis: Studs and Duds

Opportunities were precious for the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, and the margin between Sunday night's Studs and Duds.


Eagles, 19, Giants 17: Giants come up just short

Lawrence Tynes came up about two yards short on a game-winning field goal try with 15 seconds remaining as the New York Giants lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, 19-17, Sunday night


Giants trail Eagles, 13-10, after 3 quarters

A pair of third-quarter field goals by kicker Alex Henery has helped the Philadelphia Eagles earn a 13-10 lead over the visiting New York Giants in a Sunday Night Football game that reached the conclusion of the third quarter. However, the Giants will begin the fourth quarter with the ball facing a 1st-and-10 at the Eagles' 10-yard line.

Henery connected from 20 and 48 yards, the last came with 2:12 to go in the third quarter and gave the Eagles' a three-point advantage. Philadelphia used eight plays to march 50 yards to setup the field goal, which answered a touchdown drive by the Giants.

That score was a 14-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Victor Cruz from quarterback Eli Manning. The march took just eight plays and went 57 yards in 4:27.

Just before the conclusion of the third quarter, Manning found Cruz on a 30-yard pass that converted a critical 4th-and-1 play. The catch could help setup a game-tying field goal or a go-ahead touchdown for the Giants.


Giants trail Eagles, 7-3, at halftime

A 19-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver DeSean Jackson from quarterback Michael Vick has helped the Philadelphia Eagles earn a 7-3 halftime lead on the visiting New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. Jackson's first touchdown of the season capped a 11-play, 70-yard drive that ended with 1:47 to go in the first half.



The Giants' answered the Eagles' score with a 24-yard field goal from kicker Lawrence Tynes. Quarterback Eli Manning helped New York march 81 yards in 10 plays to setup the kick which came with five second to go in the half.

So far, Jackson has tallied three catches for 62 receiving yards in the first half, while Vick completed 11 of 19 passes for 132 yards. Vick also has ran the ball for 19 yards on three carries, one of came on the touchdown drive and helped the Eagles' convert a 3rd-and-4 at the Giants' 24-yard line.

Before the pair of late second-quarter scores the contest showcased little offense. Both teams ended the first quarter without a tally on the scoreboard, as only the Eagles' moved inside its opponent's territory in the first 15 minutes. That drive, which stretched into the beginning of the second quarter, ended when the Eagles failed to convert on a 3rd-and-11 situation at the Giants' 45-yard line and was forced to punt on fourth down.

Meanwhile, the Giants had only one other drive to march inside Eagles' territory. That march stopped at the 49-yard line after Manning couldn't complete a pass on 3rd-and-3 and New York was forced to punt for the third time near midfield with about nine minutes to play in the first half.

Manning finished the first half 14-for-26 with 151 yards.


Kenny Phillips return doubtful

A knee injury has forced New York Giants' safety Kenny Phillips to leave Sunday night's showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles early, and according to the Giants' official Twitter feed his return is doubtful. Phillips, a five-year veteran that has spent his whole career with New York, went down in the first quarter with an apparent knee sprain.

Despite walking off on his own power, Phillips' return doesn't look good. In his place will be Stevie Brown, a three-year player out of the University of Michigan. This season, Brown has played in all three of the Giants' games and has recorded five tackles and one interception. In his career, Brown has played for the Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders.

The loss of Phillips could be key for the Giants (2-1), who are trying to earn sole possession of first place in the NFC East Division. New York is trying to extended its winning streak to three straight games.


Eagles, Giants tied 0-0 after 1st quarter

Sunday night's Week 4 showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants has reached the end of the first quarter tied at 0-0. A victory would help the Giants (2-1) or Eagles (2-1) earn sole possession of first place in the NFC East Divisions standings.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning has struggled completing just 4 of 11 passes for 35 passing yards. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick hasn't been much better as he's 5-for-9 for 72 yards.

So far only the Eagles have surpassed the 50-yard line, as they will begin the second quarter with the ball on the Giants' 48-yard line facing a 2nd-and-10 situation. Philadelphia's other drives in the first quarter never got any further than its own 42-yard line.

New York twice has reached midfield but were forced to punt both times as they failed to convert on third-down situations. The Giants finished the first quarter with only 12 rushing yards.


Sunday night inactives include Diehl, Nicks

The New York Giants will be without Hakeem Nicks as they play their biggest rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, on national television Sunday night. Nicks is among the inactives listed by the teams before kickoff, and is the biggest name to miss the primetime game.

The Giants list Nicks, right tackle David Diehl, cornerback Jayron Hosley, linebacker Keith Rivers, defensive endAdewale Ojomo, right guard Mitch Petrus, and tight end Adrien Robinson as the players who won't dress. Safety Antrel Rolle was a question mark earlier in the week, but he'll be on the field. In Nicks' place will be Ramses Barden, who came up huge during last week's Thursday night game and will again start. Ahmad Bradshaw, who missed last week's game, will also start, but he's expected to cede some carries to Andre Brown.

The Eagles won't dress offensive tackle King Dunlap, linebacker Akeem Jordan, wide receiver Riley Cooper, offensive lineman Nate Menkin, running back Dion Lewis, safety Colt Anderson and defensive end Vinny Curry. Jamar Chaney will start at WILL linebacker in place of Jordan.

Wednesday's Giants, Eagles injury reports

Wednesday's injury report for the New York Giants has been released, and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not participate in practice as the Giants prepare for their Week 4 showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles (8:20 p.m. on NBC). Nicks played in New York's first two games of the season, but missed last Thursday's contest against the Carolina Panthers after he re-aggravated his injury in Week 2.

Others listed as "did not participate in practice" were: cornerback Michael Coe (hamstring), tackle David Diehl (knee), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and linebacker Keith Rivers (hamstring). Safety Antrel Rolle was limited in practice.

The good news to come out of Giants practice was the return of running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who missed last Thursday's game with neck injury but is expected to start on Sunday says head coach Tom Coughlin.

Meanwhile, the Eagles had a handful of players that did not practice, and those players were: defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (migraine), safety Colt Anderson (knee), long snapper Jon Dorenbos (ankle), tackle King Dunlap (hamstring) and linebacker Akeem Jordan (hamstring).

New York Giants Finally Back On Normal Schedule

The New York Giants have had a wacky start to the 2012 NFL season. They played on a Wednesday to open the season, waited 11 days to play their second game on a Sunday, then played their third game four days later on a Thursday. The Giants managed a 2-1 start in all that chaos.

"Whenever they ask us to play, we go play, that's all we know," head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday.

[Related: Injury Updates]

The Giants are back to Sunday games this week as they have a road game against the Philadelphia Eagles. A Dec. 3 Monday night game against the Washington Redskins is New York's only non-Sunday game the rest of the season.

"This is the routine that we had used prior to (the start of the regular season). It's good to have the weekend for the guys to rest and then bring them back on Monday and have a crisp, short practice and then do a little running at the end. Tomorrow will be the day off for them and then we'll go back at it," Coughlin said.
