Half-Time Report: Philadelphia Eagles come from behind to lead

The Philadelphia Eagles lead the New York Giants by 12 points at the break in their NFC East clash at the MetLife Stadium.

The Philadelphia Eagles come from behind to lead against the New York Giants in their NFC East clash at the MetLife Stadium.

The Giants looked to put their poor start to the season behind them and that's just what they did on their first drive. Eli Manning moved the ball with ease downfield driving his team inside the Eagles' 20, before running back David Wilson went over for a touchdown from one yard out.

However, the Eagles responded with a good spell on offense of their own, including one huge run from quarterback Michael Vick as he evaded the rush of the Giants' defensive line to set up a field goal for his side, which Alex Henery knocked between the posts from 40 yards.

Vick looked in good form and a deep completion to Riley Cooper set his side up in the red zone, but they could not punch the ball into the end zone which forced Henery into knocking a 27-yarder through the posts.

The Eagles finally clicked and took the lead in the game after Vick hit DeSean Jackson on a deep route over the middle of the field for 56 yards, which moved his side inside the five-yard line and LeSean McCoy was able to power into the end zone to get the score.

Henery added two more field goals just before the break to increase his side's lead to 12 points.
