Week 14 NFL 2019 – Giants 17-23 Eagles

New York Giants

With their end-of-season aspirations on the board, the Eagles got some Giants that brought Eli Manning back in what was perhaps his last game as a starter. And they needed extra time to get a spectacular 23-17 victory at home. This is our correspondence analysis.

Why did the Eagles win?
If we had seen the first half of the game without knowing who the team was fighting in the playoffs and without thinking about next year’s draft, they would have been easily confused, because the Giants played much better than the Eagles.

And one of the reasons was Eli Manning, who started two scoring passes before the break, while his defense kept the Philadelphia attack at bay, which booed local fans. For the second half, the Eagles began to feel the need to win to stay alive and began to play better.

After receiving 17 points in the second quarter, the Eagles scored 14 unanswered points in the second half, first with Boston Scott on the field, then with a pass from Carson Wentz to Zach Ertz in a score that amounted to the game.

After this annotation, the Giants could not get points in one last attempt and this sent the game in overtime, where the Eagles easily advanced to get the touchdown with the second Wentz pass to Ertz that ended a meeting that was complicated more than the expected

With the victory, the Eagles are 6-7 and tie Dallas first in a very bad season for all the teams in this division. The Giants, meanwhile, fall to a 2-11 mark that keeps them as the worst team in the NFC and the second-worst in the NFL.
