Biggest lead: 14 points (second quarter)
Nov. 19, 1978

Herm Edwards debuted in New York folklore with a game-winning fumble return for a touchdown in the ?Miracle at the Meadowlands.? The Eagles, trailing 17-12 late, had no timeouts left. To protect quarterback Joe Pisarcik from injury, the Giants opted to hand the ball off to run off the clock instead of kneeling on it. On third down, Pisarcik botched a handoff to Larry Csonka, Edwards picked it up, and scampered to the win.
