Giants take lead: A 54-yard Graham Gano field goal gave the Giants a 3-0 lead with 11:41 left in the first half. The Giants took 11 plays to go 39 yards to put Gano in position for the lengthy kick.

0-0 after first quarter: The first quarter was a defensive struggle, with each team generating only two first downs. Giants’ quarterback Jake Fromm is only 2 of 7 for 4 yards. Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts is 3 of 10 for 11 yards.

Matt Peart injury: The Giants’ right tackle, starting in place of Nate Solder, was helped off the field with an apparent left knee injury late in the first quarter.
