The New York Giants didn't do much on offense in the third quarter of their Sunday night showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles, and they were trailing 10-3 entering the fourth quarter because of it. Then Eli Manning made that lead disappear in moments.
Manning, harassed by the Eagles' defense all night, found Hakeem Nicks while scrambling for one bomb to get the Giants into Eagles territory, then found Victor Cruz while on the move for the Giants' first touchdown of the night. Lawrence Tynes' extra point tied the score at 10-10.
That drive made up for a lackluster third quarter, in which the best thing the Giants did in the quarter get a defensive stop. That came from Aaron Ross, who intercepted Vince Young in the red zone to end a Philadelphia drive.
Ross has now completed an unusual triple crown in 2011. He has interceptions of every Eagles quarterback: Young tonight and Michael Vick and Mike Kafka earlier in the season.
