Eagles vs. Giants score: Philadelphia leads New York, 13-10, after 3rd quarter

New, 1 comment

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.
