Philadelphia started fine and dandy at MetLife Stadium, nonetheless, and moved to a 34-13 prevail upon the Giants.
“We as a whole just watched it, we didn’t do anything all around ok to win today,” Giants mentor Pat Shurmur said. “Credit Philadelphia, great football group that exploited things that we didn’t do well, excelled on the focuses.

The Eagles scored a touchdown on the resulting ownership and afterward again when they got this show on the road the ball back at the Giants 44 in the wake of driving a punt, taking a 14-3 lead and putting the Giants on their foot rear areas for whatever is left of the night.

“What was my opinion about my execution this evening? Doesn’t make a difference to me,” said Barkley, who had a 50-yard touchdown run and stunning 55-yard catch-and-run. “We didn’t get the win. To get directly to the point, couldn’t care less. For whatever length of time that we get the win, I couldn’t care less in the event that I went for anyway numerous yards or regardless of whether I went for 30 yards, on the off chance that we won, in the event that we got the win, I would be fulfilled, yet by the day’s end we didn’t so none of that issues.”
