    EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Atletico Madrid Diego Costa Jersey .J. -- Even with Eli Manning toying with Philadelphias secondary for much of the game, the New York Giants barely held off the Eagles on Sunday.Manning threw for four touchdowns and New Yorks defense had two interceptions and three stops on fourth downs to beat Philadelphia 28-23 on Sunday.Philadelphia, the last few years, has had our number, said Manning, whose team had lost five of the last six to the Eagles. Weve played close games, but havent been able to win those close games. So to be able to pull it off today and get that win was nice.The Giants (5-3) won their third straight game, stopping the Eagles (4-4 after a 3-0 start) from the New York 17 after Manning was intercepted with less than two minutes to go.At the end of the game you have to go out there with confidence, confident that you are going to stop them, said cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. We have been playing well in games and when they get the ball down there and our backs are against the wall, we know we have to stand up.Two of Mannings touchdowns went to Odell Beckham Jr., with the others to Roger Lewis Jr. and Sterling Shepard .It was a game marked by big plays on offense -- six of more than 30 yards in the first half alone- and defense (four interceptions) and special teams (Jason Pierre-Pauls block of a field goal , Darren Sproles 66-yard punt return). Most of Sunday, it was a mismatch of Manning and his receiving corps against a sieve of an Eagles secondary. New York picked on every Philly defensive back, with the biggest Leodis McKelvin, no matter who he tried to cover.Less than two minutes in, Landon Collins made his third interception in the last two games; he had one pick as a rookie last year. Manning found Beckham on a slant after McKelvin failed to bump him at the line, and Beckham surged into the end zone for a 26-yard score.Andrew Adams, a rookie safety from UConn, had no interceptions in his previous five games. He sure knew what to do with the ball after hauling in Carson Wentzs high pass moments later, returning it 19 yards. Manning hit Lewis three plays later after McKelvin and Jaylen Watkins collided and it was 14-0.Mannings third TD throw came on a 1-yard jump ball to Beckham over McKelvin to make it 21-10.Wentz looked like a rookie from an FCS school in the first half, often appearing befuddled by coverages. Twice, the Eagles failed on short fourth downs while in field goal range.But he came out of halftime a different player , quickly guiding the Eagles 70 yards to Kenjon Barners 3-yard TD run.Manning, though, was just as precise and decisive on the ensuing drive, capped by his fourth TD throw, 32 yards to rookie Shepard. That gave Manning his first four-TD game since Game 14 last season.Wentz remained much sharper in the second half, leading the Eagles to two field goals by Caleb Sturgis. But Philly went 3 for 15 on third downs, 1 for 4 on fourth downs.MALCOLMS MESSAGE: Eagles players said veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins spoke up in the locker room after the game, saying they needed to learn how to finish games.Speaking for the defense, whose two interceptions in the fourth quarter resulted in no points, Jenkins said: Are you giving your team a chance to win defensively? There were a couple of plays here and there (early in the game) we feel weve got to have back. Those small mistakes -- there might be only one or two -- for our team to win we need to make those plays.ELIS COMING: Manning moved into ninth place in career yards passing with 46,428. Manning, in his 13th NFL season, threw for 257 yards against Philadelphia. He passed Vinny Testaverde, who had 46,233 yards through the air.ROOKIE FIRSTS: In addition to Adams first interception, Eagles WR Bryce Treggs made his first NFL reception, an 11-yarder on a field goal drive. It got even better for the undrafted rookie from Cal when his 58-yard reception set up Philadelphias first touchdown. Treggs was in the lineup because Josh Huff was released after being charged with possession of a handgun without a permit and having a small amount of marijuana during a traffic stop.INJURIESGiants WR Victor Cruz hurt an ankle in the first half, and LG Justin Pugh sprained his right knee in the second quarter. Neither returned. Eagles safety Terrence Brooks left with a hamstring issue.UP NEXT:Philadelphia hosts Atlanta next Sunday.New York hosts Cincinnati on Monday night, Nov. 14.---For more NFL coverage: and Atletico Madrid Rodri Jersey . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. Atletico Madrid Thomas Partey Jersey . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. At an optional practice session on Friday, Ravindra Jadeja took first strike against the spinners. He treated them with roughly the same kindness Daffy Duck is used to.Considering how all their best-laid plans backfired - tossed-up deliveries were biffed straight, quicker ones cut away and even the good-length balls were turned into half-volleys and dispatched - it was entirely disappointing that none of the bowlers accused Jadeja of being dithpicable.Then a 46-year-old man took the ball and bounded up to the crease. Oh boy. Where was this going to go? Slog-sweep to midwicket? Over the training area at the back and into main ground?Jadeja planted his front foot forward, but realised he couldnt reach the pitch and was forced to defend. Eight years after his retirement, it still wasnt easy to play Anil Kumble.The sequence continued. Jadeja attacked the rest, but he had to be watchful against his coach, slowly building up to a back-foot punch along the ground through the covers. Kumble had basically grabbed Jadeja by the ear and led him into a tutorial on how to play quality spin.Not that he is a bad one, mind you. Jadeja plays a lot of his first-class cricket on rank turners. He had been one of Indias most important contributors in the last home season, when they played on pitches that spun from day one. His lower-order runs against South Africa were often vital in securing leads. Now he was in Mohali again - scene of his Man-of-the-Match winning comeback from a shoulder injury.It was here also that Virat Kohli admitted to the teams problems against slow bowling, after they lost four wickets to the genial left-arm spin of Dean Elgar. Before that they had lost a Test to the genius left-arm spin of Rangana Herath.Kohli took pains to say the issue wasnt technical. He felt India were giving away too many wickets in clumps. He would be pleased to know, then, that only one of Englands three slow bowlers - Adil Rashid - has a strike-rate under 50 on this tour.Kohli himself has played a big part in that. He has read them out of the hand, tried to play late and off the back foot, trusting the slowness of the pitches and the quickness of his wrists. Even balls that stay low havent been spared from his wrath and barring the time he was hit-wicket in Rajkot, his methods have been flawless. His stats against spin from this series are: 83 singles, 19 twos, one threes and 15 fours that make up 185 runs in 332 deliveries.Cheteshwar Pujara has been even better. He has been collecting four runs per over of spin and averages 163 against it. A lot of those numbers are a resullt of his confidence in playing a spinner. Atletico Madrid Juanfran Jersey. He loves coming down the track, so much that he wouldnt think twice about doing so for a whole over. He did so quite early against Kumble in the nets on Friday, unleashing an on-drive against the turn, all along the ground. And hes no slouch on the back foot either, as the bowler finds out when he makes the adjustment and flattens his trajectory. It is because of his vast range of shots versus spin that Pujara is often happy to defend or take blows from the fast bowlers. He knows he can prosper later.M Vijay is quite similar, only he takes the aerial route, and tends not to give any warning of those intentions. His hundred in Rajkot was replete with such shots that caught the slow bowler off guard. R Ashwin has become a rock-solid No. 6 at home and he has tackled spin off the back foot with the late cut as his cheat code. None of these strengths are new though. They are just being used a little better and some of the credit for that must go to Kumble. India were bound to improve their batting on turning pitches with one of the greatest spinners in the history of the game in charge.The one area that they clearly have done better is in making sure they are set before dominating a spinner. Moeen Ali, at home in 2014, got a lot of wickets with the Indians going after him blindly. This time, he has been made to work a lot harder because Kohli and company have learnt to rate him better.Not taking anything away from Moeen, I think he is a pretty terrific bowler, Kohli said. He makes an impact in England as well, so he understands which lines and lengths to bowl, what speed to bowl at. Even Adil, I payed against him at the Under-19 level and I told him in Rajkot I was surprised he didnt make it to the England squad in the next two years. When we played back in 2006 he was that good even then.So we understand the quality these guys bring to the table for England. Not everyone plays for England in Test matches. We respect that but at the same time, we understand and we believe that we are good enough to counter that. You saw in Rajkot, they put us under pressure with their quality and we respect that and we are still going to find ways to keep countering what they throw at us.The surfaces India have played on this season have been considerably less extreme and that helped the batsmen as well. But the self-belief that Indias captain spoke about may just have a lot more to do with it. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
