Eagles Beat Up Helpless Giants, 27-0

first_imgPHILADELPHIA — Asked about the New York Giants’ trash-talking during the week, Jeremy Maclin replied: “27-0. Thank you.”The Philadelphia Eagles answered the Giants with a dominant performance from start to finish on offense, defense and special teams in a 27-0 win Oct. 12.Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes and LeSean McCoy had a season-high 149 yards rushing to help the Eagles earn their first shutout in 18 years.“We played great in all three phases,” coach Chip Kelly said. “We’re pleased; we’re not satisfied. Still a lot of things we can do better.”A rough night for the Giants (3-3) became worse when wide receiver Victor Cruz tore the patellar tendon his right knee while leaping for a pass on fourth down from the Eagles 3 in the third quarter. Cruz, a 2012 Pro Bowl pick, was crying and holding his hands to his face as he was carted off the field with an injury that’s expected to end his season.“Huge loss,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “It wasn’t a good situation, a grim scene.”Wearing all-black uniforms for the first time in franchise history, the Eagles (5-1) stayed tied with Dallas (5-1) for the lead in the NFC East. They hadn’t shut out an opponent since a 24-0 win over the Giants on Dec. 1, 1996, at old Veterans Stadium.Foles had 248 yards passing, Darren Sproles ran for a score and the offense had a rare strong start.The defense harassed and pressured Eli Manning often, sacking him six times and preventing New York’s upstart offense from getting on track. The Giants had won three in a row, scoring more than 30 points in each victory.“It’s a good reminder that you just can’t show up on the field and have things go well for you automatically,” Manning said. “We got outplayed, outperformed.”The Eagles entered with 11 offensive touchdowns and seven from their defense and special teams. But Foles and Co. didn’t need much help in this one.Foles tossed a 15-yard scoring pass to Zach Ertz for Philadelphia’s first offensive TD in the first quarter this season. Ertz made a diving catch, dragging his feet to stay in bounds.Foles hit a wide-open James Casey for a 26-yard TD pass to make it 17-0 in the second quarter. Sproles had a 15-yard TD run to put the Eagles ahead 27-0. He left the game with a left knee injury and didn’t return.(ROB MAADDI, AP Pro Football Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
