Morning Rewind, 10/20: The Eagles beat the Giants, but it wasn't pretty

By JOHN DORN

Nobody really expected a Monday Night Football bout between the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles and 3-2 New York Giants to be the most thrilling television, and for good reason. The tire fire that is the NFC East features four of the NFL's biggest disasters, and while Monday's game was technically a battle for first place, that title doesn't carry nearly as much weight as it sounds.

But when the clock struck zeros, the Giants had made a laughing stock of themselves, while Philadelphia game-managed its way into a 27-7 blowout win.

While Sam Bradford was picked off three times by the Giants defense, Eli Manning mustered just 189 yards on 38 pass attempts. Manning completed two passes to Eagles defenders, one getting wrestled away from Larry Donnell on what looked to be a sure-fire reception for a decent gain. The other interception was returned for a touchdown.



DeMarco Murray seems to finally be hitting stride with his new team, getting 25 total touches and rushing for 109 yards and a touchdown.

The mystery that is Eli Manning continues, as the 34-year-old continues to follow up great performances with incredibly mediocre ones. The Giants share he same record as Philly at 3-3, which leaves plenty of time to recover. But with the personnel currently in place, there may not be enough firepower to keep up -- even in one of football's worst divisions.

Eagles 27, Giants 7


**



The Toronto Blue Jays needed a win at home to effectively keep their season alive. And in front of their home fans for the first time this series, the team's bats put on a show like only they could.

Down two games to none entering Game 3 of the ALCS, the Jays sent Marcus Stroman to the mound opposite Kansas City's Johnny Cueto -- the trade deadline acquisition who (probably) very badly would like a new name right now.


The ace was forced to endure non-stop "Cue-to, Cue-to" mock cheers all evening, but after two innings an eight runs, Cueto was forced to the bench. Kris Medlen allowed two more over his five relief innings, and after a brief ninth-inning scare, the Blue Jays had themselves a convincing home win to cut their series deficit in half.

Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson and Ryan Goins all homered, each accounting for three RBIs, and just like that, Toronto is right back in the series.
