Jake Elliott goes kicking and screaming into Eagles' record book

Jake Elliott goes kicking and screaming into Eagles' record book

Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate was ruled to be just short of the end zone in the final seconds after a review, allowing Atlanta to beat the Lions 30-26 on Sunday. "I was trying to gain some more yards after the catch, and he kind of just reached around and pulled my arm down and I fumbled. According to [the media], the Giants were supposed to win the NFC East. Look where they are and look where we are". He tossed touchdown passes of 10 and 4 yards to Beckham to tie it at 14.

Coach Ben McAdoo said the Giants were not playing smart football.

On his smooth-looking touchdown pass, his first as a Colt, to wideout T.Y. Hilton: "I got the ball to the best player on the field, and he did the rest".

But the game was headed to overtime due to New York's 24 fourth-period points if not for a 5-foot-9, 167-pound kicker who graduated from the University of Memphis last May with a degree in marketing management.

After Sunday, it's safe to say all of his teammates know his name now - after Elliott booted an Eagles' team-record 61-yard field goal all but vanquishing the New York Giants in a walkoff 27-24 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. "The consequences are going to be what they are".

"I'm just real thankful for the opportunity and the whole opportunity the Eagles have given me", said Elliott, whose longest field goal prior to this was a 56-yarder at Memphis. "It makes it tough on the players that are covering kicks and make an impact on field position".

"They're an attacking scheme", McAdoo said. In the ballgame it helped us, but we had too many formation infractions that hurt, too many penalties.

The situation could have an impact on Myanmar´s transition and risked creating "a more significant terrorism problem". Buddhist-majority Myanmar denies ethnic cleansing, saying its security forces are tackling Rohingya terrorists.

But the penalty wasn't costly.

The defense came through with a three-and-out in the final minute to give the offense and special teams one last chance to cash in, which they did. NY quickly got the ball back when Landon Collins forced Zach Ertz to fumble and Apple recovered at the Eagles 33. Beckham scored again late in the quarter on a one-handed, acrobatic catch in the corner of the end zone, and afterward, he raised his fist in the air to celebrate. Darkwa ran into the middle of the line and was stopped cold, and the Giants were kept off the scoreboard. Wendell Smallwood led the backfield in yards with 71, but LeGarrette Blount looked slightly more impressive with 67. This week it was the call to go for it on a fourth-and-eight near midfield in the first half of the game, with the Eagles leading 7-0.

Manning's second interception came on a tipped ball that came down into Patrick Robinson's hands in the third quarter. Wentz threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Ertz on the ensuing possession to give Philadelphia a 14-0 lead.

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

The Eagles created a lot of pressure with their front seven on Alex Smith, sacking him four times and recording seven tackles for a loss.

"We keep learning hard lessons to things we already know the answers to", McAdoo said. Chance Warmack started at left guard but alternated with Stefen Wisniewski for most of the game.
