Wentz throws 3 TD passes, Eagles look Super vs. Giants

Just the spark we needed to get back on track, even if it was a win against the stinkin’ Giants.

As I listen to the remnants of Michael beat on my skylights, I realize how unimportant football is to the residents in the panhandle of Florida.

But to the Delaware Valley fans of the Eagles, a road win vs. a division foe is the right prescription for what ails our now-.500 team. Wentz to Jeffery has become the proper dosage for big conversions.

Time to take the New England approach of forgetting what you accomplished in the past.

We got the bounce and breaks tonight, something that had not gone our way this year. The offense looked better putting up 24 points in the first half.

Barkley is the real deal, and what moves and speed. We will have to put up with him for years. Giants quit in second half.

The Eagles came away with a much-needed win, but they are still not playing like a team that should be making the playoffs.

Defense needs some more work, like “Tackling 101.”

As for the Giants, with an experienced quarterback, they should be winning more games. Whatever the Giants' problem, I will be rooting for them and, of course, the Eagles in the weeks to come (except when the Eagles play the Giants on Nov. 25).

A win is a win. Finally, a good team effort.

Yes, the Giants are a bad team, but a bad team with some good offensive players. Our defense played with intensity, and our offense was more equally divided between runs and passes.

Finally, very few penalties, but still so many injuries! Let’s hope the 10 days before the next game give the players plenty of good rest!

Carson Wentz pulled pass completions from nowhere. The Eagles looked incredibly good compared to last Sunday, but the Giants, with the exception of Saquon Barkley, looked incredibly bad. Odell Beckham Jr. is this week's "Man on the Milk Carton" and was last seen yelling at some sideline equipment.

Still too many hits on Carson Wentz with Vaitai subbing for Jason Peters. Four good sacks on Eli Manning, and the penalty rate was down. Bottom line, Eagles win!

This was the way the Eagles should be playing football.

They came out and looked like the champs they are. Just hope they can keep playing this way.

The defensive backfield really improved. Darby and Smallwood did a good job. Wentz took too many hits. But all in all, they played a good game, even though they beat the hapless Giants.

A much-needed win! The Eagles finally looked like the Super Bowl champions that they are.

Thank God for the Giants. We needed that division win. Too bad we don't play more games in the Meadowlands. I love that "we got our butts-kicked" look on the faces of New Yorkers.

This team still has a lot to work on. We must have the worst tackling secondary in football.

A great all-around effort in Week 6 by this Eagles team! Boy, how about that Barkley kid? Imagine him on our team, but it will never happen.

Now, lets keep the momentum moving forward to next week against the Panthers.

Note to Howie: Ten days to find this team some needed help. Maybe a CB, offensive lineman or a running back.

Big win for the Eagles. They came into this game with a lot of injuries. They handled the Giants easily.

It"s now obvious the NFC East is not that good. The Giants have a superstar in the making in running back Barkley but are in rebuild mode. So even with all the injuries, the Eagles are still looking like the best in the division.

What an improvement from the last two games, even though the Giants are 1-5.

Good job Jeffery, Ertz, Agholor, Smallwood and Clement.

Bring on the Panthers. Great game by everyone. The best one this year.

If someone can tell me how I can add Saquon Barkley jersey sales to my 401k, I would greatly appreciate it.

Just the thing the Eagles needed, a bad Giants team, a really bad Giants team.

I think we should be OK in the East — 6-0, maybe 5-1, but first place looks pretty good.

I don't feel that Wentz is up to last year, yet. I'm curious to see if any of the fans have that sense, too. His timing and accuracy seem to be off. He is holding the ball just a bit too long, especially when his line is still not giving him enough time.

Barkly is the real deal, a Hall of Famer if he stays healthy, and the Eagles will have their hands full with him for some time to come. We are .500 and on the way up. Go, Eagles! Beat Carolina.

So did the Eagles finally break out of their funk or are the Giants that bad? I'm not feeling all warm and fuzzy yet. Certainly a vast improvement over the last two weeks and a crucial division win. Hopefully, this gets them back into a winning rhythm.

Is the Eagles' offense back to its 2017 form, or are the Giants just an inept, dispirited team?

Of course, Wentz having time to connect with Ertz, Jeffrey, Agholor and Mathews made a huge difference tonight.
