Eagles Domination of the Giants: A Look Back

 Eagles have won 6 straight against the Giants.  Most of those games have been nail biters, with plenty of 2nd half drama. 

We start off by taking a look at the last time the Giants beat the Eagles.  I include this only because it sets the stage for the next victory, as the Giants would be atop the power rankings until the showdown in NY on week 14.

Week 10 2008  Giants(8-1) 36 - Eagles(5-4) 31


This was a close game in Philly.  We took the lead in the 3rd, but just could not contain the Giants rushing attack, which went for 219 yards.  Brandon Jacobs was 22/126 and 2 TD's.  On the flip side, McNabb was our leading rusher with just 35 yards.  Still, this game was down to the wire and I am certain it caused me to break something in the house.

The Streak Begins



Week 14 2008  Eagles(7-5-1) - 20 Giants(11-2) 14

This was a hard fought game in NY.  The Giants come in at 11-1, unbeaten at home and ranked #1 in the NFL in every major power ranking.  The Eagles took the lead 3-0 in the 1st with a rare good use of a timeout by Reid so Akers could kick with the wind at his back as the 1st quarter expired.  The Eagles never gave up the lead and rode Brian Westbrook to victory, giving NY their first home loss of the season.  Westy's stat line: 33/131 1 TD, 6-72 1 TD.  Yardage for the game - Westbrook 203, entire Giants offense 211.  Though there were many memorable Westbrook games vs the Giants, this was his last great performance, and he would bequeath the title of "Giant Killer" to a young Desean Jackson. 

Note - On Westbrook's 40 yard TD catch in the 4th, he surpassed Harold Carmichael to become the Eagles all-time leader in yards from scrimmage.

Divisional Playoffs 2008 Eagles(9-5-1) 23 - Giants (12-4) 11

Giants take the lead in the 1st and again in the 3rd on a Carney FG, but that would be the last Giants score.  The Eagles went 10 plays for 63 yards ending in a 1 yard TD to Celek to end the 3rd.  The Eagles D would then stop Eli on a 4th and inches sneak, and on the next possession stonewall the Giants on short yardage rushing attempts on 3rd and 4th down to force consecutive turnovers on downs.  Q's pick of Eli with 3 minutes left sealed it.  Fantastic road playoff win vs the #1 seeded Giants.  It felt absolutely awesome to gloat in work at the jints fans on Monday after this win.

Week 8 2009 Eagles(5-2) 40 - Giants(5-3) 17

Total domination.  As in the previous playoff game, Eli once again stunk, while McNabb was just flat out awesome, going 17-23 for 240 and 3 TD's with a QB rating of 146.7.   Eli's line - 20-39 222, 1 TD 2 INT (both in the first half) with a rating of 55.7.  This game was over at halftime, with the Eagles scoring 4 TD's to go up 30-7.

Week 14 2009 Eagles(9-4) 45 - Giants(7-6) 38

Going into the game, the Eagles are 8-4 and the Giants are 7-5.  This is an absolute must win division game for both teams.  While the Eagles won, this was not like the previous game.  As good as Eli was (27-38 391 and 3 TD's), the Eagles D were equally sloppy.   Eagles were up 30-17 at the half, but would lose the lead towards the end of the 3rd as the Giants went up 31-30 on a Hixon 61 yard TD grab, during which the Eagles D put on a clinic of how not to tackle.  However, the Eagles answered right back with a 60 yard TD to DJ.  More poor tackling in the 4th as Bradshaw takes a little shovel pass in the backfield and turns it into a 31 yard gain.  (I specifically remember being sooo pissed at that play) Giants then convert a 4th and 4, get penalized making it 1st and 20.  Manningham is wide open in the endzone and catches what appears to be a TD, except his toe was out.   Giants eventually score with 1:30 remaining, kick it out of bounds, force the Eagles to go 3 and out and get the ball back, but Darren Howard stripped Eli from behind, ballgame Eagles.  DJ was outstanding, finishing 6-178 1 TD, and a 72 yard punt return for a TD.

Week 11 2010 Eagles(7-3) 27 - Giants(6-4) 17


This was a close game.  There was sloppy play on both sides.  Avant dropped a TD that hit him right between the numbers, Eli threw 3 picks, Vick fumbled for his 1st turnover of the season, Bradshaw fumbled and Asante fumbled on an interception return (that play really pissed me off, as I absolutely despise when players fumble int or fumble returns).  The Giants take the lead in the in the 4th, but the Eagles answer on Shady's 50 yard TD run on 4th down with 4:25 remaining.  With 3 minutes left, Eli has a nice run, but slides head first, is untouched by the D and fumbles.  Just an absolutely boneheaded turnover.  Shady rips off another long run  and Akers adds a FG to seal the win.

Week 15 2010 Eagles(10-4) 38 - Giants(9-5) 31


MM2.  Eagles and Giants both enter the game with a 9-4 record. Just like last year, this is an absolute must win division game for both teams.   As many times as I am sure you all watched this comeback, the game needs no further description.
