The New York Giants collapsed in the second half against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, watching a 19-3 lead evaporate along with their razor thin playoff hopes. In the end, the Giants were booted from Philly with a 25-22 loss and a 3-8 record.
It was a disheartening turn of events for the Giants and their fans who had bought into the notion of running the table, winning the NFC East and making the playoffs. But that’s the nature of the game.
Despite the loss, there were a number of records broken, marks set and interesting statistics to share.
With the loss, the Giants have now dropped five straight to the Eagles, nine of the last 10 and 18 of the last 22.
Additionally, the Eagles have now tied the all-time series 83-83-2.
The Giants have now lost seven consecutive games to defending Super Bowl champions.
The Giants put up 346 yards in the first half, which was their highest first half total since 1985.

Eli Manning started his 225th regular season game on Sunday, becoming just the fifth quarterback to start 225 games for a single team.
