NFL: New York Giants 42, Philadelphia 7

Dec. 30, 2012 at 4:22 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Eli Manning threw a career-high five touchdowns passes and New York routed Philadelphia 42-7 Sunday, but the Giants still missed the NFC playoffs.

Manning finished with 208 yards on 13-of-21 passing and hooked up twice with Rueben Randle on scoring strikes as the Giants (9-7) rolled to a one-sided win, but Chicago's victory over Detroit Sunday eliminated New York from post-season contention.

Rookie David Wilson also caught a Manning scoring pass for the defending NFL champion Giants, whose season was doomed by 2-5 stretch late in the campaign.

Philadelphia (4-12) got 148 yards from scrimmage and touchdown from Ahmad Bradshaw in the loss as the Eagles wrapped up their worst season under the 14-year tenure of Coach Andy Reid.
