EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants stunned the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-10, on Sunday. The Giants finished the season 6-11. The Eagles, once 10-1, finished the season five losses in six games. At 11-6, they placed second in the NFC East behind the Dallas Cowboys.

The victory by the Giants snapped a five-game losing streak against the Eagles.

The ‘Let’s Go Giants’ chants from the handful of Giants’ fans in attendance in a largely empty MetLife Stadium began late in the second quarter, with the Giants leading, 24-0. That is about the time Eagles coach Nick Sirianni pulled star quarterback Jalen Hurts in favor of Marcus Mariota.

The Giants took control of the game with touchdowns on three straight second-quarter possessions.

  • Wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson had a huge game, with 5 catches for 85 yards. He had a 33-yard catch to set up a Mason Crosby field goal and a 25-yard catch to set up a Saquon Barkley 2-yard touchdown run.
