Giants vs. Eagles final score, result: Jalen Hurts, run game shine as … – Sporting News

If there was any doubt as to who the team to beat in the NFC is, the Eagles put that to bed on Saturday night.
Fueled by impressive performances from Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell, among others, Philadelphia waltzed past the Giants 38-7 at home to advance to the NFC championship game.

In the battle of dual-threat QBs, it was Hurts who got the better of Giants signal-caller Daniel Jones. The first-time Pro Bowler completed 16 of 24 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns and added another score on the ground. It was a continuation of what Hurts and company have done throughout the season. The pass game was efficient, the run game was effective and the defense was stifling.
All of that amounted to a wire-to-wire beatdown.

With its showing, Philadelphia cemented its status as a Super Bowl contender. Not only did the Eagles beat a division foe, a team that played them tight in their final game of the season, they made it look easy, something the vaunted Chiefs couldn’t do in Saturday’s first game against the Jagusars.
Confidence is brimming in the City of Brotherly Love. A dominant display like Saturday’s will do that for a fan base.

The Sporting News tracked live updates from the divisional round matchup between the Giants and Eagles. Below are highlights and results from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
11:02 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Philly gets an insurance marker through Gainwell, who has deserved a score for his productivity today. The Linc will host an NFC Championship game.

Eagles 38, Giants 7
10:59 p.m.: TURNOVER ON DOWNS! Eagles make the stop on fourth, which should all but seal their spot in the NFC Championship.
10:57 p.m.: The Giants get a temporary stay of execution when Jones hits Collin Johnson past the marker.
10:54 p.m.: Jones misses Richie James, who had acres to run into. Just that type of day for the Giants so far.
Clock is winding down. New York’s season looks to be nearing its end.
10:50 p.m.: FIELD GOAL! Philadelphia augments its lead after Jake Elliott sinks from short range. Dominant display tonight.
Eagles 31, Giants 7
10:43 p.m.: Another excellent effort by Gainwell — with the help of his offensive line — nabs the first for Philly. This game is almost on ice.
10:40 p.m.: Gainwell has had himself quite the display so far. Finds some space behind the right guard and takes it 16 yards to move the chains. Although he only has five carries, he’s been quite efficient: Gainwell’s averaging over eight yards per carry tonight.
10:37 p.m.: Seems like Philly is in pure “milk the clock” mode. Running the ball consistently as it looks to salt the game away.
10:32 p.m.: …Not quite. The Giants’ drive stalls out, prompting another familiar sight: punter Jamie Gillan booting the ball.
10:30 p.m.: Barkley leads off the fourth with a bang, trucking through a would be defender in route to a first down. Maybe that will breathe a little life into New York’s dour offense.
10:22 p.m.: The Eagles did end up punting the ball away. But before they did that, they tried to draw the Giants offside with an unusual punt formation. Sirianni always looking to keep opposition coaching on their toes.
10:20 p.m.: The Eagles got away with one. The ball slipped out of Hurts’ grasp after Xavier McKinney jarred it loose. However, Hurts was quick to react, falling on top of the ball to prevent the turnover. Looks like Philly will punt the ball away.
10:13 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Breida takes it in from close range, securing the Giants’ first points of the game. One score down, three to go.
Barkley hands it off to Breida and the @Giants are on the board. #NFLPlayoffs

10:12 p.m.: A pair of Slayton grabs bookend a solid Jones’ scramble, taking New York inside the 10 for the first time today. The Giants desperately need points here.
10:06 p.m.: Huge gain by Barkley, who finds a little daylight for the first time today. That’s a 40-yard pickup, one that will take the Giants deep inside Eagles’ territory.
.@saquon takes off for 40 yards!

10:02 p.m.: The Giants’ defense finds a way to hold Philly scoreless to start the frame. However, a subpar punt return once again pins New York back to start its next drive. Beggars can’t be choosers, I suppose.
9:57 p.m.: New York opens its first drive of the second half with another goose egg. Big Blue boots the ball back to the Eagles after yet another three and out.
9:34 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Hurts trots in from short distance as the Eagles add to their overwhelming edge. What a display by the young QB early: 12-of-17 for 118 yards and two touchdowns through the air, another seven carries for 31 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
.@JalenHurts doing what he does 🙌

Eagles 28, Giants 0
9:32 p.m.: It goes from bad to worse for the Giants. Gainwell takes a big shot after Hurts misses the target, one that draws a flag for unnecessary roughness. The ball is placed inside the 10. Rancid showing by Big Blue so far.
9:30 p.m.: Gainwell with a pair of decent gains, first through the air then on the ground, bringing the Eagles to the cusp of the end zone. Two minute warning approaching and things are looking smooth for the Birds thus far.
9:25 p.m.: Smith moves the chain with an impressive catch and carry. Philadelphia surging once more, with the ball just outside NY’s 30.
9:21 p.m.: Eagles charging downs he field once more; they already have the ball deep in New York territory. Things are getting uglier as we speak.
9:16 p.m.: Yet another three and out for New York’s offense. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Jones can’t seem to find time in the pocket. Lots of pressure descending on him.
9:10 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Boston Scott takes it in to extend Philadelphia’s lead to 21-0.
.@Eagles up 21-0! @BostonScott2 #FlyEaglesFly

9:07 p.m.: Goedert with a wonderful block to open up space for Hurts, who scampers into the red zone. Things are getting punchy for the Giants.
9 p.m.: Giants have yet another drive halted under the crunch of the Eagles pressure. The ball is headed back to Philly.
8:56 p.m.: A brief hiatus as Jones puts his contacts but on.
8:54 p.m.: New York’s defense holds up, forcing a three-and-out to get the ball back.
8:48 p.m.: INTERCEPTION! Spoke too soon…Jones slings a pass behind Darius Slayton, who is unable to stoop down to get it. Instead, it falls perfectly into the path of James Bradberry, who comes up with the pick. That’s another Eagles drive slated to start in good field position.
James Bradberry picks it off 🙌 @Brad_B21

8:47 p.m.: Giants got to get something going. Jones seems to have taken it to heart, evading pressure before placing a beautiful strike right into Matt Breida’s bread basket.
8:42 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Hurts hits Smith on the screen play. Great blocking from A.J. Brown on the outside, opening up a lane for Smith to take it in for Philly’s second score of the game. Perfect start for the Birds.

Eagles 14, Giants 0
8:41 p.m.: After a trio of positive plays, Philly finds itself just outside the five yard-line. The offense is looking as well-oiled as they come early.
8:39 p.m.: The toss play to Kenneth Gainwell works a treat, with the diminutive tailback finding a hole and taking it for 14 on third down. Eagles on the verge of another scoring drive.
8:34 p.m.: TURNOVER ON DOWNS! The Eagles’ defense holds! Nick Sirianni brings the cavalry on back-to-back plays, forcing Jones into a fourth down incompletion. Philadelphia will get the ball just outside midfield, an enticing position for such a high-powered offense.
8:32 p.m.: Play resumed and New York is starting to find its rhythm. Jones makes a pair of chunk throws over the middle to move the chains as the Giants break into Philadelphia territory.
8:28 p.m.: And…one play into the Giants drive, the chains appeared to have, quite literally, broke. Go figure.
8:26 p.m.: Big Blue takes the field, led by two of their offensive captains: quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley.
8:21 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Hurts connects with Dallas Goedert, who makes a highlight reel one-handed catch before turning upstream and taking it into the end zone!
Oh my @goedert33.

8:19 p.m.: Hurts has been incredibly efficient to start tonight’s game. He’s already 4-for-4 with 52 yards. Eagles have trekked their way inside the red zone.
8:17 p.m.: Second play from scrimmage results in a huge gain for Philly! Hurts hits DeVonta Smith for a 40-yard gain. That’s one way to start the game.
Jalen to DeVonta. Good for 33 yards!

8:10 p.m.: About five minutes from the start of tonight’s game, should be a doozy of a matchup at the Linc.
7:40 p.m.: Big news for Eagles fans: Hurts has no restrictions on his play count after suffering a shoulder sprain in Week 15. Looks like Philadelphia’s staff is letting his off the leash for this one.
According to @JayGlazer, Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will play with “no limitations” tonight after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 15 #FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/mXaxuNyb64
7:35 p.m.: Jalen Hurts is looking for Win No. 15 of the season. He’s only lost one game as a starter this year. Simply sublime stuff.
