Former Michigan star Brandon Graham makes game-clinching play on Thursday Night Football
Former Michigan pass rusher Brandon Graham made arguably the biggest play of the night in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 22-21 victory over the New York Giants Thursday night.
With less than 40 seconds remaining, the Giants were on a drive to attempt a game-winning field goal, but Graham beat his man and got to quarterback Daniel Jones for a strip-sack.
Here’s the play:

Without this win, the Eagles would be staring at a 1-5-1 record and in a big hole to make the playoffs. Instead, they’re now 2-4-1 and currently sit in first place in their division.
The former Wolverine now has 18 forced fumbles in his career and at least one in each of his last seven seasons. Graham also has 19 solo tackles and nine tackles for loss, both of which are on pace to be career highs through seven games.
Graham and the Eagles will be in action again next Sunday night vs. the Dallas Cowboys.
