NFL: Philadelphia 17, New York Giants 10

Nov. 21, 2011 at 12:16 AM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Vince Young capped an 18-play drive with a go-ahead, fourth-quarter TD pass Sunday, sending Philadelphia to a 17-10 win over the New York Giants.

Young engineered the 80-yard drive after Eli Manning had forged a 10-10 tie with a 24-yard scoring strike to Victor Cruz earlier in the final frame.

Young, substituting for the injured Michael Vick, found Riley Cooper down the middle with an 8-yard touchdown pass with 2:45 remaining and Philadelphia (4-6) sealed the win when Manning lost a fumble after a Jason Babin sack.

Young overcame three interceptions, finishing 23-of-36 for 258 yards with two touchdowns.

LeSean McCoy carried the ball 23 times for 113 yards for the victors.

Manning went 18-of-35 through the air for 264 yards, a touchdown and an interception for the Giants (6-4), who fell into a tie with Dallas atop the NFC East.
