Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is the big, bad Giant killer, and Eagles fans are loving it in the NFC Divisional Round game against New York.
Every once in a while, a player just simply owns an opposing team. Jerry Rice vs the Falcons. Chipper Jones vs the Mets, and — of course — Boston Scott vs the New York Giants.
Scott continued his ownership bid of the Giants with a 3-yard touchdown run to put the Eagles up 21-0 over New York in the first half of their Divisional Round matchup in the 2023 NFL Playoffs. Scott has now scored a touchdown in all nine games he’s played versus the Giants, giving him 11 total against the Philly rival.
Twitter and Eagles fans in general had a ball with Scott’s streak of touchdowns and made the Giants’ defense the butt of a lot of humorous memes and tweets.
Seriously, the string of tweets, videos and memes just never ended…kind of like Boston Scott scoring TDs against the Giants
The Eagles have the game well in hand and Jalen Hurts has shown no real ill effects due to his injured shoulder in this game, despite his contention that he was “nowhere near 100 percent” prior to kickoff.
How many more touchdowns will Boston Scott have in this game? If Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni wants to really turn this thing into an epic drubbing, he’ll give Scott the ball every time the Eagles are even close to the goal line.
