"I've got a lot of confidence in Alex," Kelly said. "He's been really consistent. I think myself and him are probably the most surprised with those three misses that we had this year."
Fipp and Henery focused on his mechanics during the week, and the results were evident. Of course, there's more of a test when the kicks are from a longer distance.
"It's just one of those things, they come when they come," Henery said. "You don't have control of it, and when they come, hopefully you make them."
Eagles tight end Brent Celek scored his second touchdown of the season, topping his one-touchdown total from 2012. The Eagles are counting on Celek as their top tight end, and his 25-yard touchdown was a nice catch in the back corner of the end zone.
"It was kind of a play where I sneak out the back," Celek said. "They actually covered it decently. I was just able to kind of get behind them and Nick [Foles] made a great throw. It was one of the better catches I think I've made."
Celek has 10 receptions for 178 yards this season.
The Giants started former Eagles first-round pick Mike Patterson, who finished with one tackle for a loss. He chased Michael Vick on the play when Vick injured his hamstring.
In the tunnel afterward, a few players and Kelly stopped to say hello.
"It felt good to see those guys," Patterson said. "It wasn't strange at all. I played with those guys for a long time. Of course, I wish they were teammates still. But I'm excited for those guys. They're still in the league, and I'm proud they're in the league."
Patterson had a big stop on LeSean McCoy on one third-down play, and McCoy knew it was Patterson right away.
"I messed with him a little bit," McCoy said. "He's with the Giants now, and that's all that matters."
Patterson and Cullen Jenkins both played prominent roles for the Giants. Patterson said the losing situation in North Jersey is different than last season with the Eagles, when he dealt with personal issues. But he's hoping the Giants can turn around their 0-5 start.
"It's definitely a tough thing," Patterson said.
Linebacker Connor Barwin left the game in the first half to get X-rays on his left leg, but he returned in the second half. . . .
