The Giants (2-1) used big-play offense, and a defense that was both opportunistic is creating turnovers and terrific in defending short-yardage and goal line situations to earn the victory.
The Giants also knocked Michel Vick out of the game with a broken right hand. Ending up in a victory formation at the end of the game on the Lincoln Financial Field turf, though, was the highlight of this game for the under-manned Giants.
The Giants led early, 14-0, but the score was just 14-13 at halftime. The Eagles led, 16-14, after three quarters, but the Giants scored the game's final 15 points on a tremendous 28-yard touchdown catch by Cruz, an 18-yard screen pass to Ahmad Bradshaw and a two-point conversion run by Brandon Jacobs.
