The Giants will seal the playoff spot. This was the thinking of Will Tye on Thursday night as he made a spring with 10 yards of what according to him was open field between him and the end zone.
The tight end of the giants Giants was gazing at a bright way to the postseason.“I was open. Wide open, Saw the end zone. Thought it was gonna be a touchdown for sure.” Says Tye.
The difficulty was Eagles safety Terrence Brooks was out of the sight of Tie until it was too late, and as soon as he drifted toward the goal line waiting for an Eli Manning pass that sailed higher than intended, Brooks attacked the football, wrecking the Giants’ plan of holding a playoff party inside Lincoln Financial Field in the process.
The Giants Lost The game 24-19 to eagles, and on a night that began filled with such promise, there was plenty of remorse for an opportunity lost after the game.
The Giants – the team playing for something – let the Eagles – eliminated from contention last week — jump out to a 14-0 lead before scratching and clawing in what would have been a heck of a comeback, only to have their final two offensive drives fall short: first at the 37 with 1:54 to go, then at the 5 with just five seconds remaining.
The Giants have now lost their last 19 games when trailing at halftime by eight points or more. The last time they won a game under those circumstances: Week 2 of the 2012 season against Tampa Bay.
