Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles were brilliant defensively, defeating the Giants 27-0 on Sunday night.

Running back LeSean McCoy enjoyed a productive night, rushing for 149 yards as the Eagles improved to 5-1 to keep pace with Dallas in the NFC East after the Cowboys beat the Super Bowl champs, the Seahawks , at the beginning of the day.

A miserable night for the Giants got even worse when receiver Victor Cruz left the field in agony with a torn tendon in his right knee in the third quarter and was taken to a hospital.

The Giants, who had scored 105 points in winning their previous three games, were found with wet gunpowder, and fell to 3-3. They have a tough schedule ahead, facing Dallas, Indianapolis and Seattle in their next three games.

The Eagles, meanwhile, had allowed 115 points in its previous four games, but were much more effective to keep the Giants at zero. Quarterback Eli Manning was sacked six times and completed only 13 of his 23 passes for 151 yards.

"The big difference from other games we've played this year is that we executed in all phases, offense, defense and special teams", said coach Chip Kelly of Philadelphia reporters after the first shutout of the Eagles since 1996.

"It was a football game consistent from beginning to end. It is something that you can build."

Giants coach Tom Coughlin described it as a "great defeat" that can not be explained by any simple reason.

"We were excited to come here and play in a meaningful game, but had nothing to show for it", he said.

"They played hard, made things happen and we did not and were not able to stop them."
