Boston Scott, running back for the Philadelphia Eagles, scored a touchdown in the second quarter of the NFL divisional playoff game against the New York Giants. The two teams locked horns at the Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday.
With Scott’s score, the Eagles took a 21-0 lead in the game.
Commentators described Boston Scott as a Giant slayer. The RB has scored 19 touchdowns in his NFL career. Eleven of those have been made against the New York Giants.
“Boston Scott, the true David, because he is certainly a Giant slayer! 11 Out 19 career TDs are against the #NYGiants #FlyEaglesFly,” a fan said.
“Of course, Boston Scott was gonna score tonight. He’s the Giant slayer,” another said.
“Boston Scott now has 19 career touchdowns. 11 of which have come against the Giants.” Wowza, a true Giant slayer indeed.
“Perfect nickname for Boston Scott is “David”, the Giant slayer,” the third one said.
The New Orleans Saints selected Scott in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft (201st overall). Scott and the Saints agreed to a rookie deal on May 10, 2018, but that was waived off in September 2018, and was pushed to the practice squad.
Scott became an Eagles player in December 2018, after the Saints allowed him to sign over as he was not deemed fit to make it to the first team.
On October 11, 2019, he received a promotion to the Eagles’ active roster. On October 27, 2019, the Eagles defeated the Bills 31-13, and Scott scored his first career touchdown on a 4-yard run.
On December 9, he played an even bigger part in the New York Giants’ 23-17 overtime win thanks to his 10 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown and six receptions for 69 yards.
On April 1, 2021, Scott and the Eagles agreed to a one-year exclusive-rights free agent tender. Then in March 2022, he penned another contract with the Eagles.
