Eagles Week 12 studs and duds: Philadelphia gives one away in Jersey
The Giants take what the Eagles give them, a win.
There’s nothing that can be said about this one other than what Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said. You can’t turn the ball over four times and lose the turnover battle by a 4-0 margin and expect to win many games in the NFL (if you can expect to win any).
Leading up to Week 12’s game, much had been made about the fact that Philly was in control of their playoff lives. This was one of those games that the Eagles should have won, but they didn’t. The ride home will be a tough one as the Birds drop one to a last-placed division rival.
There’s a saying that teams learn more from losses than they do from wins. There will, most certainly, be much to talk about in Week 13 as Philly prepares for the New York Jets.
You’ve heard the stats on this all week. The Philadelphia Eagles have won 21 of their last 27 games versus the New York Giants. Unfortunately, they’ve now lost two straight versus Big Blue.
This one stings, but the Eagles have to move on. Here are the studs and duds from Week 12.
