The Philadelphia Eagles easily defeated the New York Giants 38-7 to secure their ticket to the Nationals Final.
Quarterback Jalen Hurtz threw two touchdown passes and added his middle finger to the ground in the win. He completed 16 of 24 passes for 154 yards.
The Eagles wasted no time setting their pace in this matchup. On first offense, Philadelphia raced down the field thanks to a long 37-yard reception from DeVonta Smith. Moments later, quarterback Jalen Hurts tipped a pass to Dallas Goedert who then managed to force his way into the end zone.
The Eagles attack seemed to be in complete control of its capabilities during the first quarter. While in the push zone, Hurts found young wide receiver DeVonta Smith completing the line with a nine-yard touchdown. After two possessions, the Eagles lead 14-0.
The story is no different in the second quarter. After a few productive runs of 11 and 12 yards from running back Miles Sanders, it was finally a Boston Scott who crossed the opposing end zone with a three-yard run. Scott continues to enjoy success against the Giants with his 11th career touchdown against that team.
While the Eagles already led 21 points to 0, they decided to add more before halftime. At the Giants’ goal, Hurts went on a five-yard run to extend the lead. If anyone doubted the health of the Eagles’ quarterback heading into the game, Horts showed the soccer world that he was ready for the playoffs with three games in the middle of the game.
After halftime, it was the Giants who managed to score the first points. After a long 39-yard run from Saquon Barkley that brought Giants camp to life, Matt Breida went there for an eight-yard touchdown run to put New York on the board.
The next points added to the board came in the fourth quarter as the Eagles added their lead thanks to a 30-yard field goal from Jake Elliott. Philadelphia’s kicker has been a perfect playoff hitter since the start of his career with a total of 12 successful field goals.
With minutes left in the game, Kenneth Ginwell delivered the final blow with a 35-yard run that ended in the Giants’ end zone. The Eagles handily defeated the Giants 38-7 and now await the winner of Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.
