"You have ups and downs, and you move onto next week".
Never mind that long snapper Rick Lovato, holder Donnie Jones and Elliott had never tried a field goal longer than 57 yards in practice or that Lovato admitted "we didn't even know he had that in him". "I think every situation is different, your opponent is different, the game situation is different". Quarterback Eli Manning has thrown one touchdown and two interceptions. "It makes it tough on the players who are covering kicks and it makes an impact on field position". Other Giants players, and coach Ben McAdoo, locked arms on the sideline. "We are all irritable right now, and rightfully so", he said.
What would a win this Sunday night versus an outstanding 2-0 Oakland Raiders team mean for the Redskins within the NFC East?
"I'm going to have to see what took place there", he said.
NY called a timeout in an effort to ice Elliott, but Lovato made sure not to snap the ball back to Jones because "we didn't want it to get in his head if he missed it".
The Giants had failed to score 20 points in eight straight games, but Manning led them to 21 in 5 minutes 21 seconds. Unless Odell Beckham can single-handedly turn things around for the whole Giants team, the Eagles will be running the ball. The Eagles played the second half without defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, running back Darren Sproles. The Eagles won when Jake Elliott kicked a 61-yard field goal as time expired. We dropped too many balls.
On a hot, humid day, both N.F.C. We're down, what, 14-0?
The Giants had 10 penalties that amounted to 137 yards, including separate pass interference calls on cornerback Eli Apple for 41 and 36 yards. Beckham, down on all fours, took a few steps and then lifted his right leg in the air to mimic a puppy going potty. So I don't know if there's anything that you draw back and do. So I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on.
But the penalty was not costly. NY quickly got the ball back when Landon Collins forced Zach Ertz to fumble and Apple recovered at the Eagles 33.
In the game's final period, the Steelers weren't able to contain the Bears, who scored a walk-off victory on a 19-yard TD run by Howard. The spectacular Beckham almost willed the Giants to win with two touchdown receptions - one a trademarked, spectacular one-handed grab - along with the help of Shepard, who took a simple slant 77 yards for another score.
Those three wide receivers combined for 34 catches, almost 300 receiving yards and three TD receptions. Last season's National Football League rushing touchdown leader, LeGarrette Blount, did not have a carry versus the Chiefs, leaving 34-year-old Darren Sproles with the majority of playing time due to the Eagles' preference for an up-tempo attack.
Wentz also had an 11-yard scramble for a first down on a third-and-8 play on that 18-play drive.
