Philadelphia eagles looked back to business last night.
Yeah and to be honest--i thought their struggles this year we're a little overplayed--i thought they'd just ran into some bad luck early--but are still a darn good football team.
Last night proved that to be correct.
Philly played last sunday afternoon--leaving them just 4 days minus time for travel to play the division rival new york giants.
Philly got off to a super fast start--they pick off eli manning on the second play of the game--score a touchdown--and on their 3rd possession--another score--corey clement in from a yard out--14-6 lead.
Late in the second--carson wentz throws his second touchdown of the half--this one to zach ertz!
Eagles up 24-6 at halftime.
Second half--watch how easy this is--alshon jeffrey walks into the endzone for his second score of the game!
Only bright spot for the giants was rookie saquan barkley---229 total yards and this 50-yard touchdown--that brought the giants a little closer--but otherwise a very frustrating night for new york--including one odell beckham junior.
6 catches for just 44 yards--eagles win 34-13 they get to 3-3 and back up to the top of the nfc east.
That stuff was huge so a big win for us.
And its friday night so of course that means we've got an all new delmarva sports insider.

And in the hockey world--the capitals with a bad draw--their 4th game in 10 days--while the devils haven't played in 5 days--fresh legs for new jersey and it showed--kyle palmeiri gets the goal to go there.
Caps down 2-0 after the first--two minutes into the second--another goal given up--phoenix copley in net for braden holtby--allowed 6 goals on the night.
And look at this last one--just a bad night overall for the caps they suffer their first loss of the season and go down hard 6-0.
That's it for sports.
