Foles' 4th-quarter magic helps Eagles take down winless Giants
East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Foles threw a pair of fourth- quarter touchdown passes in relief of an injured Michael Vick, and the Philadelphia Eagles capitalized on more turnover woes from the mistake-prone New York Giants to come through with a 36-21 victory at MetLife Stadium.
Foles finished with 197 yards on 16-of-25 passing after taking over for Vick, who pulled his left hamstring late in the second quarter on a 13-yard scramble. DeSean Jackson hauled in one of the fill-in's scoring tosses as part of a 7-catch, 132-yard effort, while Alex Henery went 5-for-5 on field goals to help Philadelphia (2-3) halt a three-game losing streak.
New York, on the other hand, fell to 0-5 for the first time since 1987 after committing four turnovers that were converted into 17 Eagles' points. The Giants now have a league-high 20 giveaways through five games, including 12 Eli Manning interceptions after the struggling quarterback was picked off three times in the fourth quarter.
The injury-riddled Giants also saw another key player go down, with running back David Wilson exiting in the first quarter with a neck injury.
Manning did accumulate 334 yards despite completing just 24-of-52 attempts and hit Rueben Randle for a pair of touchdowns in the second half. Hakeem Nicks racked up 142 yards on nine catches in the setback, while Randle put up 96 yards on six grabs.
Prior to departing, Vick rushed for a team-best 79 yards on seven scrambles and went 6-for-14 for 105 yards through the air.
