Everybody knows by now that the Eagles and Giants Rivalry is one of the most storied in the NFL, especially when it comes to explosive punt returns..but there’s something about the number 19 that is pointing towards another one in tonights game.
November 19th 1978- Herman Edwards picks up a fumbled punt to return for a touchdown against the Giants in what became known as the Miracle in the Meadowlands.
October 19th 2003 – Tonight’s HOF Inductee Brian Westbrook returned a punt against the Giants for a touchdown after it bobbled in front of him.
December 19th 2010 – Desean Jackson returned a punt against the Giants to hand the Eagles one of their most memorable victories in the 21st century.
The one thing that they all have in common? They all took place on the 19th of the month…are we destined for another amazing Eagles finish tonight?
