Eagles vs. Giants: 5 Things We Learned from New York's 17-10 Loss

If you are looking for a place to find optimism concerning the New York Giants, you won't find it here. After an embarrassing 17-10 loss to the 3-6 Philadelphia Eagles, there wasn't much good to find.

Despite a good showing by the defense, it was an 18-play, 8:51 80-yard touchdown drive that put the Eagles ahead for good. They let Vince Young convert six third downs, including the go-ahead eight-yard touchdown on 3rd-and-goal.

I don't care how good they played all game long, letting Young do that to you is inexplicable.

But as bad as that was, the offense had its worse game of the season by far. They gained only 278 yards, were 5-for-14 on third down conversions and only scored one touchdown on a defense ranked 19th in points per game.

Oh, and wouldn't you know it, the Eagles' first touchdown was set up on a DeSean Jackson punt return that gave the Eagles the ball on the 14-yard line.

So as you can see, there wasn't much good about tonight's loss, so the five things we learned will reflect that.
