All she wrote

The Eagles lost to the Giants, 27-17, to move to 3-5-1 on the season in an afternoon filled with unforced errors and underwhelming play. The Giants are now 3-7 and are heading into their bye week. The Eagles have a daunting stretch ahead with games against the Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and then the New Orleans Saints, four teams significantly better than the Giants team they just faced.

Piling on

The Eagles now trail the Giants, 27-17, after New York converted on a 44-yard field goal with 3:06 left in the game. The Eagles offense will need to put together two scoring drives without any timeouts and will need to do so in a hurry.

Offense heating up

Jones responds

The Giants took just 2 minutes and 42 seconds to respond to the Eagles' first touchdown of the day, scoring one of their own by way of a one-yard run from Wayne Gallman. Daniel Jones had two consecutive precise passes for a combined 65 yards, the first one to Sterling Shepherd, who beat Avonte Maddox. The second was to Golden Tate, who made an impressive catch over Nickell Robey-Coleman, who was in good coverage.

Run defense?

The Giants went up, 14-3, after a goal-line score from New York running back Wayne Gallman to conclude a 13-play, 75-yard drive. The Eagles run defense, typically solid against conventional running-back runs, has been anything but so far today. They’re allowing 7.2 yards per carry on 13 attempts so far.

Ironman Kelce

Eagles center Jason Kelce is set to make his 98th consecutive regular-season start, which is the longest streak among all NFL centers. For most of the first half of this season, Kelce, Carson Wentz, and Greg Ward have been the only constants on the Eagles' offense ravaged by injury.

Welcome to the blog

Good afternoon, Eagles fans. Greetings from a windy, chilly MetLife Stadium. Did you miss us? The Eagles are back after two weeks, well-rested off a bye week and currently preparing for a 1 p.m. matchup against the New York Giants. At 3-4-1, the Eagles lead the NFC East and have a chance to stretch that lead over the rest of the division, which is a combined 6-20.

The Giants (2-7) are coming off a 23-20 win against the Washington Football Team. Daniel Jones has put together a few solid games, including last Sunday when he had a season-high 67% completion percentage and no turnovers. In 22 career games, Jones has only had two games without a turnover.

The Eagles are coming out of the bye week getting much healthier on offense. Miles Sanders, Lane Johnson, and Alshon Jeffery are all expected to return to the lineup. When you consider Jalen Reagor and Dallas Goedert also made their returns against the Cowboys in Week 8, this is the healthiest the offense has been in months. It will be interesting to see how Doug Pederson utilizes the variety of offensive threats at his disposal after so many weeks without them.
