PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lawrence Tynes missed two field-goal tries from 54 yards with 15 seconds left and the Eagles held on for a 19-17 victory over the Giants on Sunday night.

Tynes missed wide left, but the Eagles had called time-out to ice him. He was short on his second attempt.

With LeSean McCoy leading the way on the ground, Michael Vick guided the Eagles (3-1) to another comeback.

Alex Henery kicked a 26-yard field goal with 1:49 left and the Eagles overcame two pass interference penalties on New York's final drive.

The defending Super Bowl champion Giants (2-2) have struggled against Philadelphia, losing eight of the last nine meetings.

McCoy had 121 of his 123 yards rushing in the second half. The All-Pro had six carries for 2 yards at halftime.
