[GAME RECAP: GIANTS FALL TO RIVAL EAGLES, 17-10

](http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Giants-Fall-to-Eagles-17-10/a03a8474-cfd5-42e0-b87a-277be9b8f351)The fourth-quarter comeback has become the Giants' signature event this season. Five times they have rallied from a late deficit or tie to win a game. They came up short last week in San Francisco, but when the Giants had a first down at the Philadelphia Eagles' 21-yard line with 1:25 remaining Sunday night, it seemed that San Francisco would be merely a brief interruption in a string of inspiring victories.

But it was not to be. Instead, the Giants got another lesson that waiting until the game's final few minutes to play at a high level is risky business.

POSTGAME QUOTES

Coach Coughlin: "That is the biggest disappointment that we have had around here in a long time. I didn't like the way we played. I know our offensive line was completely outplayed by the front eight of Philadelphia. Our defense did some good things in the first half but the second half was not very good and not what you like. Top it off by putting ourselves in position to tie the game and go into overtime and again we have penetration, breakdowns in protection, somebody gets beat and the quarterback doesn't see him. We didn't protect the ball and the ball comes out, so the opportunity to give ourselves a touchdown there with overtime coming forward doesn't happen. I thought, with exception of the one punt, we did okay in that department. Our coverage in the game was good but we punted too many times. We have no first downs to show, we have no yardage to show, we have no rushing yardage with 29 yards, which is about as pathetic as it can get. It was a very poor performance." FULL TRANSCRIPT
