The Eagles came out of the half with a 14-play, 82 yard drive that took over eight minutes.
Unfortunately, the drive ended in a field goal when the Giants stopped the Eagles on third-and-11 from their own 18-yard line.
The kickoff return to start the quarter featured a harrowing collision between Ellis Hobbs and Dave Tollefson. While a clean play, it was also pretty much the definition of a helmet-to-helmet hit.
At the point, the Giants regained some momentum, driving 68 yards on nine plays on their ensuing drive to answer the Eagles' field goal with a touchdown of their own. Eli Manning found Travis Beckum on the left side of the end zone out of a short crossing route for a two-yard touchdown pass.
Those two drives took up nearly the whole third quarter. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Giants sacked Vick on the ensuing drive and forced the MVP candidate to commit a turnover for the first time this season.
The fumble, which occurred on the Eagles' own 32-yard line, proved costly. After Brandon Jacobs rumbled for 22 yards, Eli Manning threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Derek Hagan.
After that, Vick fumbled the ball on the very next drive, but recovered the ball.
The teams then traded punts before LeSean McCoy scored what would be the decisive 50-yard touchdown run off a botched snap on a fourth-and-one play that Vick was barely able to pitch to his running back before being engulfed by a Giants' defender.
A successful two-point conversion attempt made it 24-17. Eli Manning turned the ball over on the Giants' final two drives.
A tacked-on field goal made it 27-17, and that was all she wrote from Lincoln Financial Field.
