One play after Joselio Hanson almost picked off an Eli Manning pass right out of Derek Hagan’s hands, the Eagles got their turnover. Ahmad Bradshaw was gangtackled by a number of Eagles defenders when rookie Brandon Graham ripped the ball out and onto the ground. Asante Samuel picked up the loose football, taking it to the Giants 20 for a very short field. This was Graham’s first turnover forced in his young career.
Michael Vick and the Eagles offense stalled when Desean Jackson just missed a touchdown reception. David Akers hit his 17th field goal to give the Birds a full touchdown lead.
10-3 Eagles in the back end of the 2nd quarter.
