Football News

The Thursday Night Football clash between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles certainly had one main theme - turnovers.

Five interceptions and two lost fumbles between the two teams tonight saw a very mistake prone game end with a Philadelphia win.

Clear winners

The Eagles claimed a 27-7 win over their divisional rivals but it was far from an impressive performance from either quarterback.

Sam Bradford threw three of the five interceptions in the game and also recovered the fumble but was able to reclaim it.

Meanwhile on the other side of the line of scrimmage, Eli Manning threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once.

It was a night to forget for the quarterbacks but for Philadelphia runningback DeMarco Murray, it was another good game for him.

Murray rushed for 109 yards and scored a touchdown tonight as he helped the Eagles claim a big divisional win.

On the other side of the ball however, the Giants big star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr had a less productive night with 61 receiving yards and one touchdown.

It was far from an encouraging performance from anyone - except the two defenses as both teams will now look to improve.

Both teams now 3-3 and make up the top half of the NFC East in what is quickly being considered as one of the worst divisions in the NFC.

Tough tests approaching

Both the Eagles and Giants face tough tests in week seven as the Eagles face a tough trip to the 5-0 Carolina Panthers.

Meanwhile the Giants take on yet another divisional match when they welcome the Dallas Cowboys to MetLife Stadium.
