EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ Vince Young threw a go-ahead 8-yard
touchdown pass to Riley Cooper with 2:45 to play and the
undermanned Philadelphia Eagles finally got things right in the
fourth quarter, posting a 17-10 victory over the New York Giants.
In what was a must-win game for Andy Reid’s struggling team
Sunday night, the Eagles, who had lost five games in the fourth
quarter earlier this season, marched 80 yards in 18 plays over
8:51. They converted six third-down plays with DeSean Jackson
setting up the first-and-goal with a 10-yard catch to the 10.
On third-and-goal, Young found Cooper, who hadn’t caught a pass
all season, alone in the end zone for the lead that gave the Eagles
(4-6) hope in what has been a dismal season.
