Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 New York Giants: Carson Wentz's three TDs fires Eagles to convincing win

Published at 2:07am 12th October 2018. (Updated at 10:17am 12th October 2018)

The Philadelphia Eagles got their season back on track with a 34-13 hammering of a toothless New York Giants outfit on Thursday night.

The Giants struggled throughout the divisional match-up, particularly on offense, with the exception of a breakout performance from rookie running back Saquon Barkley.

Barkley tallied 229 total yards from scrimmage, including a 50-yard touchdown run. But, his breakaway TD came with the game already all but over and the Giants already trailing 31-6 in the third quarter.

The Eagles got off to a fast start in the contest after Eli Manning turned the ball over on New York's opening drive, leading to a 13-yard touchdown strike from Carson Wentz to Alshon Jeffery - the two would connect again for a score on the opening drive of the second half.

Wentz finished 26 of 36 passing, throwing for 278 yards and three TDs, while Manning and the Giants offense struggled to stretch the field, much to the audible frustration of the home crowd.

Manning completed 24 of his 43 passes on the night, for 281 yards, while Odell Beckham Jr was held to only 44 yards receiving off six catches.

The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles move up to 3-3 on the year with the victory, while the Giants slip further back in the NFC East to 1-5.
