Giants Fall To Eagles On 61-Yard, Last-Second Field Goal


Giants Fall To Eagles On 61-Yard, Last-Second Field Goal

"I don't really have a set number with him", Pederson said.

PHILADELPHIA, PA - SEPTEMBER 24: Sterling Shepard #87 of the New York Giants catches a pass and runs for a touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on September 24, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Having spoken with our players, I can attest to the great respect they have for our national anthem and all it represents.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said he didn't have an opinion on the unsportsmanlike penalty.

"We definitely knew the ball was going to come out quick", safety Malcolm Jenkins said. The Philadelphia Eagles led for three quarters before the New York Giants went on a ridiculous and opportunistic run.

Since 1990, only three teams have survived such a start to reach the playoffs, the most recent being the Bills in 1998.

"I don't care about history; I care where we are at", the veteran receiver Brandon Marshall said. We've just got to finish it. At the end of the Giants game, he had a chance to, well, give the Eagles some much-needed momentum as they prepare for a west-coast trip and the rest of their season.

Before the 61-yard game-winner, Jake Elliott had to convert a 46-yard field goal with 51 seconds left that tied the game at 24.

Belief persevered the Giants past many shortcomings in Week 3, but ultimately it did not match reality on the final scoreboard.

In the third quarter, with the Eagles up, 14-0, the Giants had a third and 2 at the Philadelphia 13.

"Everything adds up in this league".

Reluctantly, Pederson addressed Beckham's antics during his Monday press conference, and admitted the celebration is one that he and his team will remember when the NFC East rivals meet again in Week 15. Beckham, on all fours, lifted his leg like a dog and pretended to pee on the turf. Asked if he is bothered by that lack of regret from Beckham, McAdoo said, "I gave you my response". "I'm going to enjoy this one".

To keep that going if they are forced to continue operating so shorthanded will be the next challenge.

But the penalty was not costly. But his mobility is one of the things that appealed to the Eagles when they drafted him.

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. Beckham then made a spectacular one-handed grab for a 4-yard touchdown and a 14-14 tie. Blount had a rumbling 17-yard run early in the drive, and Wentz later kept it going with an 11-yard scramble on third-and-8. He averaged just 5.7 yards per attempt and threw just one touchdown pass.

Joe Flacco's pass to Maclin was intercepted by A.J. Bouye during the second quarter after it came off the wide receiver's hands.

His second one came after Manning tossed three TDs in a span of 5:21 in the fourth quarter to give NY a 21-14 lead.

Despite the loss, the Giants have reason to be optimistic their offense is finally coming out of a long funk.
