Giants 29, Eagles 16: Eli Manning Throws Four TD Passes In New York Victory

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – A maligned Giants defense peppered Michael Vick with hits, knocking him out with a broken hand, and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes Sunday to lead New York to a 29-16 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

After what happened last time these teams played, you might say the Giants owed their NFC East rivals one.

Manning threw two touchdown passes to Victor Cruz and one each to running backs Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. Cruz and Bradshaw reached the end zone in the fourth quarter for the Giants (2-1), who scored 14 unanswered points to win the game.

The Eagles (1-2) trailed 14-0 in the first quarter, then scored 16 straight points to take the lead but Vick came out of another game, giving way to Mike Kafka for the second week in a row.

Vick was knocked out of last Sunday’s game against the Falcons because of a concussion, but passed his tests during the week and started against New York.

Although he suffered several hits in a bruising first half against the Giants, including one from Rocky Bernard that slammed his helmet on the turf, Vick likely broke his hand on a hard hit by Chris Canty later in the game.

Kafka came in with 8:07 remaining in the game and threw an interception on a deep pass down the right sideline. The Eagles trailed 22-16 at the time.
