Murray, Eagles cut down Giants
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — DeMarco Murray ran for 109 yards and a touchdown, Nolan Carroll returned one of Eli Manning’s two interceptions for a score and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 27-7 Monday night.
Sam Bradford threw for 280 yards and a 32-yard TD pass to Riley Cooper, but had three interceptions to keep New York in the game.
The Eagles (3-3) have won two straight to move from last place in the NFC East into a tie for first with the Giants (3-3). The teams meet again in Week 17.
Neither team looked sharp in front of a prime-time audience. They combined for seven turnovers and 21 penalties.
The Giants gave the Eagles first downs on a roughing-the-passer penalty and a running-into-the-kicker penalty to keep both of their TD drives going.
