Your second-half open thread

NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The first half of the New York Giants‘ trip to Philadelphia couldn’t have started out worse.

First a three and out to start the game, then the Giants’ defense gives up a long touchdown drive, then Eli Manning almost immediately throws a pick 6.

The Giants’ defense settled down, coming up with a pair of three and outs and an interception, but the offense failed to capitalize on any momentum the defense captured. The Eagles stretched their lead to 21-6 on a screen pass given up by over-pursuit by Keenan Robinson, a bad penalty on Eli Apple, and a touchdown off a busted coverage.

The Giants responded with a methodical drive that saw them convert four of four third downs, and ended with a touchdown to rookie wide receiver Sterling Shepard on an impressively run route, making the score 21-13.

The Eagles will get the ball to start the second half, can the Giants make the comeback?
