Eagles 35, Giants 30

Tough loss again for Giants, Coughlin

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Coughlin has walked off the field surrounded by photographers and camera crews many times in his 12 years as Giants coach, most notably after two Super Bowl victories.

This time his head was down heading to the tunnel after a close season-ending loss to the Eagles, and he only lifted it momentarily to wave to the crowd in what might have been his final game.

"The frustration continues," said Coughlin, who led the Giants to Super Bowls in the 2007 and 2011 seasons. "You've got your questions prepared for what direction I'm going in, I'm not going to answer anything about that. The season just ended, there will be time for that."

Sam Bradford threw two short touchdowns to Jordan Matthews as Philadelphia got a win for interim coach Pat Shurmur, who took over after Chip Kelly was fired last week.
