But wanting and doing are two separate things. East rivals looked sloppy for the first three quarters.
"It was an organizational decision along with the players", Coach Doug Pederson said of the decision to lock arms.
Later, Beckham scored a second touchdown on a remarkable one-handed grab after which he celebrated by standing in the end zone and raising his right fist. They got the ball back with 13 seconds and threw an incomplete pass. Wentz then found Jeffrey for 19 yards along the right sideline where he ran out of bounds to stop the clock.
In a span of 106 seconds early in the fourth quarter, Beckham lifted the Giants from the dead just when it looked like their season was about to combust. That touchdown came off a slant and went for 77 yards. "To say that, as a president, that everybody who protests peacefully deserves to be fired, maybe you're leading the wrong country because that's not America". The 15-yard penalty forced the Giants to kick-off from their own 20-yard line while trailing 14-7 with 12:39 remaining.
Elliott said he didn't even know if the timeout came from the Eagles or Giants. "If we lost that game, I would have been in the dumpster". Down 14 in the fourth quarter, struggled offensively, didn't finish some drives. That defensive line needs to make sure they get after Manning because their secondary will have trouble covering Beckham Jr. and company.
This game was a back-and-forth battle that the Bears were able to take in overtime. "So a tough one to swallow". I was praying it was going to be short.
"I might give this [game-winner] a day".
"I had no idea what they were going to do", Elliott said after the game at Lincoln Financial Field. Had to write 109 miscellaneous yards in the NCAA because it never really happened before. If they are going to win games this season, they are going to need the offensive line to step it up. If you aren't, you should check them out when you have a moment. "I see him as a vet". He thought it was pass interference. They made the trip from IL to see their son play. I think those who have not been involved felt more pressure to get involved at this point.
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".
A constant refrain, or excuse, during the course of last season was that defenses were running cover-2, a base defense that has been around for decades, and that was simply a superior defense to what the Giants were trying to do on offense. Big Blue hits the road again in Week 4 for a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who fell to 1-1 with a 34-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
ABOUT THE EAGLES (1-1): Wentz (NFL fourth-best 640 yards passing) has re-established chemistry with tight end Zach Ertz (league third-best 190 receiving yards), but Philadelphia's rushing attack hasn't gotten off the ground with the running backs averaging just 3.1 yards per carry.
