If Boston Scott solely played his game against the New York Giants, he would be the greatest running back of all time. The Eagles’ 5’6 complementary back scored a touchdown against New York in Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff game, and normally one carry for 3 yards would not make the news.
But that single play becomes much more notable when you consider that no player has ever scored on a higher percentage of his plays than Boston Scott against the New York Giants.
Eagles’ RB Boston Scott now has scored 11 touchdowns in nine games vs. the Giants.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 22, 2023
Scott has scored seven touchdowns in 52 games vs. all other NFL teams.
The touchdown is Scott’s 10th rushing score on 87 career attempts against the Giants. He has scored at least one touchdown in all nine games against New York: 10 rushing, one receiving. He has absolutely dominated the Giants, having scored 11 of his 18 career touchdowns against this one team.
This was not a huge concern for New York’s defensive coordinator Wink Martindale leading into the week, noting that he was “not here” for most of those games. Well, you’re here now, Wink. Is Boston Scott a “Giants killer” now?

Boston Scott is a free agent this year. You think maybe the Giants need to make him their top priority?
