EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles couldn't do much against New York's defense. So they took advantage of the Giants' stodgy offense instead.
Brandon Whiting of the Eagles celebrates after recovering a fumble in the final minutes.
Strahan, who leads the NFL in sacks, now has one more than he had in 16 games last season. ... Philadelphia defensive tackle Corey Simon left the game in third quarter with a head injury. ... In two games against the Giants last season with the Redskins Thrash had five receptions for 119 yards, including catches of 46 and 45 yards. That was one reason why Philadelphia signed him. ... This is the first time Fassel has lost a game when his team led going to the fourth quarter. He had been 31-0 in the regular season although his team lost to Minnesota in the 1997 playoffs after leading by nine points with two minutes left.
