The Eagles beat the Giants 20-13. The absolute worst part was watching our defensive line get pushed around. Watching our offense get shutout for over 59 minutes wasn’t all that great either though.
Was scoring that TD at the end of the game some sort of mental victory for the Giants? Considering how the offense couldn’t seem to get on the same page and held the ball for about 25 minutes, I think it is. Maybe ending the game with something positive will help guys focus as they prepare for the Cowboys.
No one expected the Giants to go undefeated, but I certainly didn’t expect them to get pushed around like they did in the Cleveland game. Was it a motivation thing? Was it the Plax distraction? Was it not having Plax (Hixon had a pretty big drop)? Was it something I’ll never understand?
The only thing I’m pretty sure about is that the Giants got their butts kicked but not because Plax wasn’t on the field. He didn’t push our defensive line around. He didn’t bribe the refs to let the Eagles hold all day (like they seem to get away with every time we play). He didn’t slow down our linebackers (did our guys look like the slowest LBs in the NFL today?). He didn’t make our receivers drop passes.
Let’s just hope the Giants down play like this again until next season…
