Giants Lose On Final Play
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock the last 24 hours, the Eagles came back from a 21-point deficit at the New Meadowlands and won in shocking fashion by a score of 38-31 over the New York Giants.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the final play of the game where DeSean Jackson returns a punt 65 yards for the Eagles’ game-winning touchdown.
The Giants had complete control of the game for the first three quarters, but then had a complete team meltdown in the 4th quarter, blowing a 31-10 lead in the final 8 minutes of the game.
A lot of Giants fans have been trying to put the blame on just one person, whether it’s been punter Matt Dodge or head coach Tom Coughlin. But in my opinion, there is no way to place the blame on just one person.
The offense was non-existant in the 4th quarter, the defense was horrendous and the special teams was awful. This is one of those losses where you just have to give the Eagles credit for having heart and blame the entire Giants team for letting their foot off the gas pedal at the wrong time.
