Eagles Deny Giants A Playoff Spot, 24-19
Malcolm Jenkins had two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants, 24-19, on Thursday night.
Philadelphia (6-9) kept their division rivals from clinching a playoff spot, but they handed the NFC East title — and home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs — to Dallas as a result of the victory.
New York (10-5) was gaffe-riddled on Thursday. Eli Manning completed 38 of 63 passes for 356 yards and a touchdown, but he threw three interceptions. His first pick, which Jenkins returned 34 yards for a score, gave the Eagles a commanding 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
Odell Beckham Jr. had 11 catches for 150 yards for the Giants. Kicker Robbie Gould made four field goals for New York, which can still clinch a playoff spot this weekend if Detroit, Green Bay, Tampa Bay or Atlanta loses.
Carson Wentz threw for 152 yards, with a touchdown and an interception for Philly.
