Giants-Eagles 3rd quarter update: Eagles up 13-10 with Giants driving

After the game's first nine possessions ended in punts, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants have scored on their last five possessions, as the Eagles are up three at the start of the fourth quarter. Lesean McCoy broke things open for the Eagles after his team received the kickoff to start the third quarter, with back-to-back 34- and 22-yard runs that brought the team to the one-yard line. However, that's as far as he got, as the Giants stonewalled him three straight times to force a 20-yard field goal, which Alex Henery drilled with ease.

David Wilson got the Giants started off in good field position with a 45-yard runback on the ensuing kickoff, and Eli Manning completed all three of his passes on the drive that culminated in a Victor Cruz 14-yard touchdown right down the middle of the field. That tied the game up at 10 apiece. The Eagles bounced back, though, with Michael Vick completing a 27-yarder to Brent Celek and running for 18 more of his own with Henery hitting another 48-yarder to move himself to 3-for-3 on the night.

The Giants are currently driving, as their final play of the half appeared like they would simply line up to draw the Eagles offsides, but they shifted into a shotgun set that saw Manning complete a 30-yard gainer over the middle against an Eagles team expecting a run up the gut.
