Nolan Carroll pick-six gives Eagles the lead

AP

Monday Night Football has turned around in a hurry.

After the Giants jumped out to a quick lead on the strength of an Eli Manning-to-Odell Beckham touchdown pass, it appeared that the Giants were going to take control: The Eagles went three-and-out on their first possession, the Giants started marching down the field again, and everything was going New York’s way.

But when Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans intercepted a Manning pass, everything started to shift. An Eagles drive was prolonged by a stupid third-down roughing the passer penalty on Damontre Moore, and the Eagles ended up scoring on a Sam Bradford-to-Riley Cooper touchdown pass.

And then with the Giants backed up in their own territory, Manning was picked off by Nolan Carroll, who easily jogged into the end zone for a touchdown.

The Eagles now lead 14-7, and suddenly it’s the Giants who need to get things turned around.

  1. Bradford is clearly the worst QB in the NFL. His lucky TD should of been knocked down by one guy, and picked off by the 2nd. Never thought I would want Mark Sanchez on the field.

    Pull this bum before he throws the season away

  2. I feel for Eli – he’s the only one not named Beckham worth a damn on this team… And sadly enough seems to be the only one trying (Donnell needs to see the bench right next to any rb not named vereen)

  3. These two teams are laughable with their incompetence. The AFC south is lowly regarded, but the NFC least is really the bottom of the barrel.

  4. Cowboys beat both of these clown teams already. It’ll be pretty funny when Dallas takes the division despite no Romo for half the year.

    The Cowboys will be dead and buried long before Romo gets back. I’d take the QB situation on either of those “clown teams” over the atrocious combo of Weeden and Cassel. Cowboys fans have been living under Jerrah Jones too long, reality doesn’t apply.

  6. Regardless of what team “wins” this game, this is one of the worst officiated games I have EVER seen. Bad calls all around, not favoring either team. Clock screw ups, bad penalty calls, overall incompetence. It just sucks.

  7. As a Pats fan, preseason I was a little nervous about playing Dallaas, NY and Philly. Dallas, w/o their two best players, doesn’t have much of a chance. They say the AFC South is bad, and it is, but the NFC East isn’t far behind. In both cases, I guess somebody has to win the division.

  8. As a Giants fan, I must say this is the worst excuse for a D-Line I have ever seen. I’m 53 years old, and they couldn’t sack me.

    As a Cowboys fan I consider myself very critical of them. I believe Jerry should retire as GM, I think Cassel should have been in there last week, and I can’t stomach the fact that Greg Hardy is on my team. With that said, they are no where near dead and buried. their next four games are all winnable. The Eagles and Giants have both proven to be inconsistent at best. Those are winnable games. The Seahawks are what their record says they are. No way around it, the Panthers proved that this week. Then there are the Bucs. That defensive line is a lot better like it or not. ALOT better.

  10. EAGLES WEARING BLACK, YET ANOTHER TEAM TRYING TO COPY THE RAIDERS! THE EAGLES OR ANY OTHER TEAM WILL EVER LOOK AS GOOD AS THE RAIDERS!

    What’s the NFL record for combined turnovers in a game?

    _________

    Better question, what’s the NFL record for interception thrown in the endzone? Bradford is at what, 5 so far this year?

  12. The Eagles offense looks shaky but they haven’t given up a point since the opening drive with 4 turnovers. That’s impressive against an offense that was hot.

    Maxwell should give Nolan Carrol some cash for taking the attention off him along with shutting down every receiver he was on tonight.

    ———————————-

    Maxwell should give him his paycheck. Worst CB on the Eagles since the Nnamdi overpayment by Reid.

  14. Giants and Eagles both suck.

    All the Cowboys have to do is hang around a few more weeks…

    The defense has already shown improvement with Hardy / McClain returning. And they get Gregory back this week.

    About to become the best defensive line in the league.
