The Philadelphia Eagles were struggling late and looked like they would drop a tough one to the New York Giants on Week 7 Thursday Night Football. Instead, Carson Wentz and Boston Scott might have saved the say in a huge way. Wentz placed a perfect pass in front of Scott and he somehow hauled it in around a Giants defender and as he fell to the ground. It gave the Eagles a 22-21 lead they would hold on to for the victory.

Scott was in a position that was not in the cards as recently as last week. Miles Sanders suffered a knee injury last week and was ruled out for this game. Scott got the start and finished with 92 total yards and this key score.
