Eagles beat Giants 34-17 to clinch NFC East

Getty Images

Appropriately, the Eagles had to scratch and claw and sweat it out Sunday against the Giants. It’s what they have done all season.

They made sure their season didn’t end Sunday.

Philadelphia took care of business, though the Giants made things interesting. The Eagles’ 34-17 victory clinched the NFC East.

The Eagles (9-7) head to the postseason next weekend, while the Giants end the season 4-12.

Eagles running back Boston Scott had two career touchdowns in his career before Sunday. He had three Sunday. Tight end Josh Perkins scored his second career touchdown.

Scott caught four passes for 84 yards and had 19 carries for 54 yards and three touchdowns.

Carson Wentz went 23-of-40 for 289 yards and a touchdown.

The death knell for the Giants — and for the Cowboys, who needed a Philadelphia loss to win the NFC East — came when Daniel Jones fumbled the snap on a rainy afternoon with 13:03 remaining. Fletcher Cox recovered at the New York 2-yard line.

On the next play, Scott scored to give the Eagles a 27-17 lead. He later added a 2-yard touchdown.

That began chants of “Cowboys suck!” with Giants fans joining in with Eagles fans.

Giants center Jon Halapio was carted off late in the fourth quarter.

  1. Eagles went 4-0 down the stretch, all divisional games, with half their team injured.

    Granted, the records of those teams were poor, but so was Philly’s, and they smacked Dallas in the process.

    Nice rally Eagles, now, do something with it in the playoffs.

  2. Don’t worry Dallas fans there’s always next year. Yea next year you’ll be better you’ll see. Next year Dak will sign his $40 Million Dollar a year contract, and somehow he’ll be better. Next year when you have Zeke all year you’ll be awesome, because Jerry says he’s the straw that stirs the drink. So don’t worry Dallas fans next year is right around the corner. Yea next year you’ll see you’ll be great

  3. Both the Eagles and Giants fans screaming Cowboys suck? Who says the Cowboys aren’t America’s team. Look at how they bring enemies together.

  4. Cowboys and Steelers both missed the playoffs. I’m a happy camper. Somehow next preseason all the talking heads will still have both teams as Superbowl contenders like they do every year.

  5. Hopefully this shuts up the Wentz haters. Wentz essentially led the Bad News Bears to the playoffs…a literal team of practice squad players and castoffs.

    I dont think we are going anywhere in the playoffs but this has been an amazing year for the Eagles given all the circumstances.

  6. Gotta give all credit to Pederson and Wentz. That lineup is the walking dead and a bunch of stiffs that got hired from a Home Depot parking lot.

    I don’t recall Rosen or Lurie getting on a weekly radio show (or their children for that matter) to cause of swirl of uncertainty or media circus that ultimately undermines the one justifiable voice in the locker room: the head coach.

    I hope the eagles beat the Vikings or whomever they host.

  7. One things for sure there’s no Nick Foles to come in and save the day when Wentz smells it up next week. Not impressed with a win over the Giants Eagles fans so slow your roll a little. Yes its nice to see Dallas get knocked to the curb, because theres no better team to hate then those losers in Dallas, but you guys haven’t beaten anyone who was any good this year so we’ll see next week won’t we? Yes we will…Yes we will

  8. Not an Eagles fan, but they got some guts. I think they give Seattle a good fight. Not sure about 49ers, though.

  9. On paper and on individual talent, the Eagles are no better than the Cowboys, not at all.

    The difference seems to be culture. The Eagles just radiate a sense of guts, daring, and determination. The Cowboys radiate listlessness, fog, inconsistency.

    The Eagles are like a slightly lesser Seahawks – a mess in a lot of ways, but a belief in themselves that is always dangerous, and a coach with the killer instinct.

    The Jimmy Johnson Cowboys had that edge. The current Cowboys need it back, or they’ll never go anywhere.

    Hopefully this shuts up the Wentz haters.

    ===============

    It will take better than 9-7 to do that.

  11. Hey camstinks,

    They beat the Packers, Bills, and Bears on the road and were one play away from beating the Pats, Lions, Dolphins and Falcons. Literally one dropped pass in each of those games changed the outcome.

  12. Btw…I do NOT hold out much hope of advancing in the playoffs. I’m no fool. But it’s just nice to shut skip up.

  13. What a great day. Eagles in, Cowboys out, Steelers out, Patriots in freefall. Attention Media: Dallas is eliminated – please stop talking about them.

    Wentz smells it up? Wentz the first qb in history to throw 4000 yards with no wide receiver getting 500+? Wentz who led all NFL QB’s in the 4th quarter the past 4 weeks? Love Foles….always will but cmon.
    The “haven’t beaten anyone good” gets old. Beat Dallas, Green Bay, Bills, Bears….and are NFC East champs and have one skill position starter who was there week 1.

    Yeah, those schedule makers sure looked out for Philly! You forgot to add the Dolphin game as a 5th……………….oh wait. Spread the NYG games out next year so maybe the Eagles play them prior to tanking.

  16. good job Philly beating the dregs of the East the last 4 games to get in the tournament..

    Now come the real teams with real resume’s

  17. Congratulations to Dallas, Washington, and most likely Ny organization who get a jump on their coaching search. Fly Eagles Fly!

  18. Totally amazing what this team has done and what the coaching staff has done given all the injuries. Really happy for Carson. A playoff win would really get the monkey off his back.

    Imagine being so unhappy with your life that you leave bitter negative comments on every teams posts.

  20. Wow. Played 4 terrible teams and the .500 Dallas Cowboys down the five game stretch and made the playoffs by winning the worst division in sports by beating 2 tanking teams over their last three games. Wentz really is a God on Earth.

  21. Congrats Eagles fans. Better team won the division. I hope you can do something in the playoffs.

    Because all the receivers are hurt so they scheme to spread ball around foles would be 14-2 right now

  24. Lest we forget that Foles got benched for a rookie and was 0-4 in games he started this year…

  25. As a Giants fan I obviously hate the Eagles and the boys….BUT, if I have to pick one of them to win the east, it’s going to be Philly.

    SO, SO happy to see another boys season go down in flames.

  26. Jerryjones real teams? What’s missing starts with a C and ends with a Y. How bout dem 🤠 s…?

    NFC South & AFC West each have 3 teams with losing records. That would make them worse than the NFC East. But good story though.

    I wish Philly had lost so I could see a coach (Garrett) actually get fired BEFORE the playoff game.
    ———-

    LOL! Never thought of that!

  30. @ camstinks, winning in Green Bay on a short week is pretty good, isn’t it? In buffalo, not bad eh? Two wins against solid, playoff caliber teams on the road. Personally, I don’t think the eagles have the talent when the rubber meets the road beyond next week. In fact, I don’t think they’ll be as talented as the team that comes in next week but whatever, we’ll see. Either way, you don’t know what you’re talking about even if you May be right in your overall assessment of them not being a great team. Trust me, eagles fans know this probably isn’t a Super Bowl team but the team is incredibly resilient, which is extremely commendable. Don’t forget, desean Jackson is back if they make it past next week, I promise you, no dome team will want to see the eagles if that happens and I assure you, the NFC teams In general will be rooting for the Seahawks if they play the eagles

  31. As a cowboy fan,
    Thank you eagles!

    You just successfully secured Jason Garretts exit. I was kinda worried about a playoff run and then Jones would be happy with extension. Now, things changed!

    Thank you again, Philly!
    Win, Win scenario

  32. bdawkhof..

    I have no illusions about my team, glad its done..

    now my postseason pleasure will be watching your team getting served up instead of mine.

    but you did win the ho hum division..

    one step above a participation trophy..

  33. Not an eagles fan, but you have to credit Pederson for what he has done with a beat up roster. Has any coach done more with less?

  34. Dear Carson Wentzs Inflated Wallet…

    None of us eagle fans are saying we’re great. At least we should know that. We know we suck. We’re just amazed what they’ve been able to do with SO MANY injuries. We were told, after a 3-0 Dallas start, that Dallas was a lock for the super bowl. Well we shut them up. And that’s why we’re excited. Not because we think we’re gonna do anything in the playoffs. We also love how angry you are that the eagles won. Your misery is our food.

    I’m not even a fan and I know they beat Green Bay in Green Bay in a prime time game. I know the NFC East beats each up more so than any other division every year no matter the teams records. I’d put the AFC West second.

    I know that Carson Wentz has done more with nothing this season than any other QB.

    I know that Philly doesn’t throw up peace signs while scoring on other teams that make them look foolish. I know Boston Scot has more heart then Zeke or Saquan combined.

    Saquan should change it to Saqone because he’s only good for one run per game.

    The NFC East has a combined record of 24-40, NFC South is 32-32, AFC West is 31-33. All three have 1 team over .500. Tell me again how that makes the NFC East better.

    ……………………
    Foles the Mariano Rivera of Pro Football. If he’s back with the Jags next season he’ll start it on the bench were he belongs ; he’s shown as much this season .
    Won’t be surprised if he offers to give some of his salary back , that’s the kind of guy he is

  38. I’m pulling for Wentz and the Eagles since the Rams are out. Still, they have a ways to go to equal the miracle Foles/Eagles Super Bowl win of a few years ago. Teams sometimes go decades without winning a SB. Keep paying homage to Foles because it might be a while before that great victory happens again.

    Eagles beat Green Bay in Lambeau and Buffalo at New Era Stadium troll.

  40. Congrats to my Eagles! Never doubted, although I was extremely frustrated after the Miami loss. But, sometimes a wake up call arrives just in the nick of time!

    Philadelphia Eagles 2019 NFC East Champions!

  41. The Cowboys are who we thought they were! #Trash!

    Dallas had an easy schedule beginning of the year. Ultimate collapse for them.
    But Skip and the rest of Jerrys Boys will have them as SB front runners next year like they always do.

    May Skeletor Live Forever!
