Giants soar to 24-0 lead over freefalling Eagles

There was a time when the Philadelphia Eagles were 10-1.

They are looking at finishing the season 11-6, which would mean five losses in their last six games heading into the playoffs.

Not good.

The Eagles needed a Dallas loss in Week 18 and a Philly win over the Giants to repeat as NFC East champs.

Heading into halftime, neither appears on the horizon.

The Cowboys took a 21-10 lead over Washington,

Meanwhile, the New York Giants had raced to a 24-0 lead over the Eagles at MetLife.

The Giants scored three touchdowns in the second quarter.

Matt Patricia running the defense does not appear to be working.
