Lawrence Tynes missed a 54-yard field goal with just 15 seconds remaining, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants, 19-17, in Philadelphia on Sunday night. Trailing 17-16, quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy guided the Eagles into position for Alex Henery's go-ahead, 26-yard field goal with 1:49 left to play. New York (2-2) has now lost eight of its last nine meetings with Philadelphia (3-1).

Eli Manning passed for 288 yards and a touchdown, as the New York Giants routed the Carolina Panthers, 36-7, on Thursday night in Charlotte. Running back Andre Brown added a career-high 113 rushing yards and two touchdowns for New York (2-1) in his first NFL start in place of the injured Ahmad Bradshaw.
Two battles between unbeaten teams and a rematch of last season's AFC title game highlight the Week 3 NFL schedule. Here's a preview of all of the week's action:
Thursday, Sept. 20
NY Giants at Carolina Panthers — 8:20 p.m.
Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC
After rallying to a win behind Eli Manning's 510 passing yards, the Giants (1-1) face a short week of preparation for Carolina (1-1) and their versatile quarterback, Cam Newton. Expect New York to pressure Newton and respect the Panthers' solid running attack. Though Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks was ailing after last Sunday's win, he should be in uniform on Thursday. New York running back Ahmad Bradshaw is less likely to play.
Matt Ryan passed for 219 yards and two touchdowns, as the Atlanta Falcons took advantage of three first-quarter interceptions by Peyton Manning to beat the Denver Broncos, 27-21, in the Georgia Dome on Monday night.
In their 20-point, Week 1 win over the Colts, Chicago (1-0) was led by its offense, namely quarterback Jay Cutler and receiver Brandon Marshall. The duo will look to continue its success against a Packers' defense that didn't stop the 49ers often enough last week. Green Bay (0-1) needs to show better balance on offense, as the Packers piled up most of their positive yardage last week after the game was all but decided.
