Jalen Hurts, Eagles Defense Prove Too Much for Giants as Philadelphia Earns Trip to NFC Title Game

The Philadelphia Eagles soared to victory in their NFC Divisional Round match-up against the New York Giants on Sunday. Jalen Hurts and the Eagles’ defense proved to be too much for the Giants, as the Eagles rolled to a 27-17 win and a spot in the NFC Championship Game.

The Eagles’ offense was firing on all cylinders in the first half, with Hurts throwing for two touchdowns and the defense making big plays to keep the Giants off the board. The Giants, however, mounted a comeback in the second half, with a touchdown from Daniel Jones and a field goal from Graham Gano. But it was not enough to overcome the Eagles’ strong performance.

Despite the final score, experts had mixed opinions on the outcome of the game. The New York Post had a variety of opinions on the match-up, while Sports Illustrated weighed in on why the Giants would beat the Eagles and why they wouldn’t. Ultimately, the Eagles proved to be too much for the Giants, who were unable to replicate the same defensive performance that allowed them to beat the Eagles twice during the regular season.
