Week 3 of the NFL Season is nearly in the books.
And he's not the winless coach in Sunday's matchup.
Since 1990, only three teams have survived such a start to reach the playoffs, the most recent being the Bills in 1998.
He has 113 yards on 29 carries, and 1 touchdown, which he scored on Sunday in the Eagles' 27-24 win against the Giants. With premier talents like Brandon Graham, Tim Jernigan, and more, someone should be able to hit the quarterback regardless of the tempo. "It's an NFC East opponent". The Eagles only got the ball back with 13 seconds to play after the Giants horribly mismanaged the clock in a push for overtime. Every week is important. At 34, Sproles, a 5-foot-6, 190-pounder, continues to be the Eagles most explosive player. The team's leading rusher is quarterback Carson Wentz. And the consequences are gonna be what they are. He wasn't great in the first game, either. Marshall said. "We didn't really do anything the first two games". "We didn't execute the run game at all".
From October, 1938 to November, 1942, the Giants won nine consecutive games over Philadelphia, their longest win streak in the rivalry.
On a third and 2 at the Philadelphia 18, the Giants ran a quick no-huddle play, with Manning completing a 7-yard pass to running back Paul Perkins that would've given the Giants a first down at the 11. Wentz returned but he wasn't the same. But credit the coaching staff for not losing it in the fourth quarter.
Eagles punter Donnie Jones: "When we were going out for the last field goal, I just looked at Jake and said, 'You got this, baby. The offensive line played their tails off all the way across the board". It's an offensive unit, yeah. "I'm going to try to spark this team".
Bold move to start with the dog piss celebration and just hope you get another chance for the raised fist later. I had a wide receiver play nickel for me when I was in Detroit.
While we can sometimes be fooled by what we see in the National Football League preseason, the Giants didn't pull the wool over anyone's eyes. If they put up that same kind of performance Sunday, Manning will be picking grass out of his helmet all day.
Manning completed 35 of 47 passes for 366 yards, three TDs, two interceptions and was not sacked for the first time this season. We have to make sure we're prepared to come out and fight battles like this. Get you into something that gives you a little better chance, a little better angles. "They play downhill at all three levels, so they're very aggressive there".
In the end, even the guys up front knew who the real heroes were in this game. That was partly due to injuries at safety and cornerback.
Did you notice? After benching left guard Isaac Seumalo after two games, the Eagles went with a rotation at the position. "They fought harder than we did".
