EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The wounds stay mounting for the Eagles.

So even if the suffering offense had via some distance its absolute best sport of the season because the Eagles buried the Giants, 34-13, on Thursday night time, there used to be motive for fear when left take on Jason Peters left the sport with a biceps harm and cornerback Sidney Jones left with a hamstring harm.

As well as, proper take on Lane Johnson, a game-time choice with an ankle harm, by some means controlled to limp his means thru prior to leaving on the finish of the 3rd quarter.

Then beginning cornerback Jalen Turbines left halfway during the fourth quarter with an harm. He got here again in a single play later. 

Nonetheless, the Eagles needed to shuffle their offensive line and secondary round. All of this got here 4 days after working again Jay Ajayi tore his ACL, finishing his season.

It is a excellent factor that the Eagles do not play once more for 10 days. Even that will not be sufficient for the ones harm Thursday to go back. 

For one night time, then again, the Eagles (Three-Three) had greater than sufficient to overcome the bumbling Giants (1-Five) in a a very powerful NFC East department sport.

That is as a result of quarterback Carson Wentz survived a number of hits to seek out Alshon Jeffery for 2 landing catches whilst finishing 26 of 36 passes for 278 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Eagles wanted a powerful sport from Wentz, and he delivered. So did the working backs unit as Wilmington local Wendell Smallwood was the lead again, speeding for 51 yards on 18 carries.

Corey Clement, who neglected the former two video games with a quadriceps harm, had 43 yards on 11 carries.

The Eagles began speedy, scoring 14 issues within the first quarter. That they had scored simply seven first-quarter issues of their earlier 5 video games mixed. They led 24-6 at halftime. The 24 issues used to be greater than that they had scored in any in their earlier 5 video games.

The Eagles wanted all of that desperately.

Handiest rookie Saquon Barkley may do anything else. Barkley completed with 130 yards speeding and 99 yards receiving. Barkely scored on a 50-yard run, bringing the Giants to inside 31-13 early within the 3rd quarter.

The Giants looked as if it would get a damage when Smallwood fumbled and the Giants recovered on the Eagles’ 15. However after a replay evaluate, the fumble name used to be overturned and the Eagles stored the ball.

They ended up riding down the sphere and kicking a box objective for a 34-13 lead.
