Corey Clement ran in for a score on the next play to tie the game.
When your rookie kicker boots a franchise record 61-yard field goal as time expires to defeat a division opponent, the special teams gets an automatic high grade as a result.
After the game, Beckham was asked if the gesture was related to protests by players around the league. "He's fired!" an impassioned Trump croaked. Actually, understated is putting it nicely. "This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag".
It can only get better from here, right? The Giants receiver appeared to have a touchdown, but he was pushed out of bounds inches from the pylon and then didn't finish the process of the catch in the end zone while falling to the ground on the next play.
The team had a meeting about the issue before the game.
Even Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was on the sideline during the anthem and his arms were locked with linebacker Brandon Graham. It's football ... Nothing dirty to me. The Giants opted to pass on the previous two plays, something that will surely lead to questions for Ben McAdoo after the game. "It was a collaborative effort to stand united. I thought it was cool".
"We can't worry about playoffs this week, we just have to get a win. And it was great to see". This act seemed more in tune with a theme running throughout the National Football League this weekend, with teams defying the words of President Trump.
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a decision to not come out onto the field for the anthem in Chicago, opting to stay in the tunnel instead of making players choose between protesting in public or not.
"We put enough points on the board to win", McAdoo said.
The Eagles got in position for Elliott's kick after a short Giants punt and a 19-yard completion to Alshon Jeffery left them with one second on the clock. That was Chip Kelly's final game as Eagles head coach. The demonstration was notably started by Colin Kaepernick a year ago, who was protesting police brutality and systemic racism.
While tensions were high inside and outside the stadium to start the game, there was nothing but joy throughout the Linc after Elliott's kick.
I'm not sure if a Colts fans will view this as a positive, but when interviewed, Brissett sounds very much like a Patriot.
"I approach every miss and every make the same way, I have a one to two-minute rule, something I sort of kind of learned to do in high school", Elliott said. "It was pretty awesome".
"Sounded like a cannon off his foot", Pederson said.
The whole day was just kind of weird, especially leading up to the improbable victor.
Went was 21 of 31 for 176 yards, one TD and no picks. Rasul Douglas and Patrick Robinson both had an interception and both far-exceeded expectations.
Pederson finally committed to the run, which resulted in 193 rushing yards on 39 attempts (4.9 average) and permitted backs Wendell Smallwood (12 carries for 71 yards) and LeGarrette Bount (12 for 67) to be factors. "According to [the media], the Giants were supposed to win the NFC East. Look where they are and look where we are". That was until the Eagles made an impressive stand on New York's final drive after Philly tied the game in the previous possession. Let's hope the ratings were good.
