Eagles, Giants stand united during anthem

25 September 2017

Trump's controversial comments came days earlier at an Alabama campaign rally and on Twitter and inflamed a situation that began a year ago when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt as the national anthem was played to bring attention to police brutality against minorities. However, overcoming extreme adversity is the makings for a great team.

Going into Week 3, in the NFL's NFC East division standings, the Washington Redskins are now tied with the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles at 1-1.

From October, 1938 to November, 1942, the Giants won nine consecutive games over Philadelphia, their longest win streak in the rivalry.

This game was a back-and-forth battle that the Bears were able to take in overtime.

As for the Giants, the first two games have been forgettable.

The president said maybe they should use the catchphrase he made famous as a reality TV star - "You're fired". President Donald Trump visited Huntsville on Friday night to offer support for Senator Luther Strange .

After Aldrick Rosas kicked a 41-yard field goal to put the Giants ahead, Elliott hit a 46-yarder to tie the score, 24-24, with 51 seconds left. Wendell Smallwood led the backfield in yards with 71, but LeGarrette Blount looked slightly more impressive with 67. Graham is one of the best pass rushers in the game and should have his way with the inept Flowers.

If Wentz is forced off his game and Philadelphia's offense is slowed down, and Manning can get even just a bit more protection; it's conceivable that NY could beat the Eagles.

Wisniewski, who rotated with Chance Warmack at left guard in place of the benched Isaac Seumalo, played 44 of 76 snaps, and had a number of big blocks, including one on safety Landon Collins during Corey Clement's 15-yard touchdown run. Verizon customers can also stream the game on Verizon NFL Mobile.

With the offense floundering, weaknesses have shown up in a previously strong defense. Sproles has consistently given the Eagles good field position as a punt returner. Rasul Douglas and Patrick Robinson both had an interception and both far-exceeded expectations. Douglas had an incredible game in his first start considering he shadowed Marshall the entire game. 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.

Eli Manning completed 35-of-47 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns.

Objection to protests "has nothing to do with race"
The continuing protest by NFL players who are "taking a knee" during the playing of the national anthem has gone worldwide .

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Middle linebacker B.J. Goodson and right tackle Bobby Hart are going to miss the New York Giants game Sunday against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Veteran QB Eli Manning has no offensive line and has been sacked a whopping eight times.

Now, that's not to say the Eagles defense played poorly by any means. "We've got a lot of guys out here who can do everything they want us to do". They did so by winning 11 of their final 12 games to win the AFC West.

Despite rushing for only seven yards, their lowest first-half total since 2011 against the Jets, the Giants revealed a relatively viable offensive game plan.

It's easier to execute the delivery if the ball is reverse-swinging, but controlling a new ball with that much accuracy is hard . But just like everything else about him and his game, there is an uncomplicated outlook to managing expectations as well.
