Giants Vs. Eagles Halftime Score: New York Trails, 10-3

The New York Giants spent most of their first half struggling on offense. But after the Eagles opened up a double-digit lead, Eli Manning led a late drive that made the halftime score 10-3.

Lawrence Tynes made a 48-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter to close Philadelphia's lead to one possession. 

Manning found D.J. Ware on a checkdown to set up the field goal; Ware was crushed by Eagles defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins at the end of his catch-and-run, and may have sustained a concussion.

Manning has just seven completions on 18 passes; that's fewer than Vince Young, who is making his first start of the season for the Eagles. But the Giants are doing more through the air than on the ground, where Brandon Jacobs, Da'Rel Scott, and Ware have combined for 19 yards on 10 carries.
