The New York Giants were thoroughly dominated in all three phases of the game Thursday night as they were defeated by the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-13.
EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY—With the New York Giants in desperate need of a win coming into Thursday night, head coach Pat Shurmur was hoping his team would put on their best performance of the year.
What he received, instead, was the Giants worst and lackluster effort for the season as they were embarrassed by the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-13.
The tone of the game was set on the Giants second offensive play of the game when Eli Manning’s pass that was intended for Scott Simonson was intercepted by Kam Grugier-Hill. Three plays later, the Eagles scored on a Carson Wentz 13-yard touchdown to Alshon Jeffery and never looked back.

The Giants offensive line was overmatched against the Eagles defensive front seven. They sacked Manning four times but pressured him constantly. As a result, the Giants offense was relegated to throwing short passes—keeping with the 2018 theme.
