Drew Hallowell/Philadelphia Eagles/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) — The Philadelphia Eagles keep finding ways to win close games. 

The Eagles captured their third come from behind win by defeating the New York Giants 19-17 on Sunday night. 

Lawrence Tynes had a chance to win it with 15 seconds left for the Giants (2-2), but missed a 54-yard field goal that sent the Eagles fans home happy. Tynes had two chances at it after Eagles coach Andy Reid called timeout in an attempt to ice the Giants kicker, but missed both kicks. 

LeSean McCoy ran for 123 yards for the Eagles (3-1), who played their first game without a turnover this season. “It’s just the Giants and Eagles, this is what it comes down to,” McCoy said. “Eventually our running game would crack it and that’s what we did.”

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick threw for a touchdown and ran for 49 yards to pace the Eagles offense, who trailed 17-16 after Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a touchdown pass to Bear Pascoe with 6:45 remaining in the game. 

Vick would then drive the Eagles down the field and set up a 26-yard field goal from Alex Henry that would prove to be the game-winner.
