Giants lose to the Eagles 34-10

"The Giants won the last game with the Eagles, so I thought maybe they had a shot even without Daniel Jones playing. Boy was I wrong. Once again the defense was doing a great job against this team as they had the last time, and the score was tied at 3-3 at the half. With Jones on injured reserve, backup quarterback Jake Fromm was the starter for the first time in his career.
Things were tough from the start on the offensive line as Matt Peart suffered a bad knee sprain, and Nate Solder was already out due to COVID-19 issues. The Giants weren't moving the ball that well except for two promising drives, and one resulted in a field goal to give the Giants a 3-0 lead until the Eagles later scored one to tie things up.
I was hoping that during the halftime break the players would get some meaningful coaching before they next took the field. I don't know what they came up with, as the first two plays were a run for no gain by Saquon Barkley, followed by an interception by Fromm on his next pass. Things only got worse from there, and soon Mike Glennon replaced Fromm.
Glennon did lead the Giants to one garbage time touchdown to make the score look slightly better, and the Giants ended up with a 34-10 loss. I don't know where they go from here with two games left, and I hate to say it, but I'm glad there's just two. It's been a real disappointing season for all the fans."

"A quarterback switch from Mike Glennon to Jake Fromm, resulted in a quarterback switch back to Mike Glennon. Fromm hardly expected to have an opportunity to make his first career start as a quarterback for any NFL team this year when he was on the Bills practice squad earlier this month. Fromm came off the bench last week in the fourth quarter and went 6 of 12 for 82 yards, and looked to take good control of the offense in his short stint.
Whatever skills he showed then did not translate to being a starter this week. Fromm had completed only 5 of his 16 passes for 10 yards by halftime, but with the score tied at 3-3, they stuck with him to start the third quarter. Two plays in, Fromm threw an interception, and the Eagles had the ball at the Giants 21-yard line, and soon a touchdown. Fromm's next possession started with a 10-yard sack, and after the 3-and-out, he was done for the day.
Glennon had two short stints before throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown, which made the score 34-3, as the Eagles had been scoring every time they touched the ball in this half. With a little over ten minutes left, and the score being what it was, the Eagles likely didn't mind that the Giants next drive lasted six and a half minutes, even though it cost them a touchdown.
The Giants had the ball just one more time with a little less than two minutes left. Playing against soft coverage, Glennon completed 4 passes out of 5 for 20 yards, so factor that in looking at his overall numbers, 17 completions on 27 passes for 93 yards with 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. The Giants likely wish they had kept Colt McCoy as a backup, as it's been nothing but losses since Daniel Jones has been out."
