PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles were the only team to reach the end zone in the first half of their game against the New York Giants Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field.

Quarterback Michael Vick's 19-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DeSean Jackson with 1 minute, 47 seconds left in the first half gave the Eagles a 7-3 lead at intermission.

The Eagles' offense sputtered for most of the half before embarking on a 70-yard, 11 play drive. Vick hit rookie wide receiver Damaris Johnson for a 17-yard gain and running back LeSean McCoy for 12 yards during the series. Vick also kept it alive by scrambling for 4 yards on a third-and-four play.

The Giants answered with a 25-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes with five seconds remaining in the half. That ended a 10-play, 81-yard drive by quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants offense.

Until those drives, the scoreboard didn't change.

Both defenses dominated for most of the first half.

Vick completed 11 of 19 passes for 132 yards in the first half and also led the Eagles in rushing with 19 years. Running back LeSean McCoy was held to 2 yards on six carries.

Manning completed 14-of-26 passes for 151 yards.

The Eagles also staged a moving halftime ceremony with a video tribute, laser show and fireworks in honor of former safety Brian Dawkins, who had his No. 20 jersey retired before the game.
