One more look at Eagles kicker Jake Elliott's record breaker

Eagles Corey Graham Jaylen Watkins out vs. Giants

The silver lining for the Giants is that the Eagles last week held the Chiefs without a touchdown in the first half but gave up two in the fourth quarter. After a week on the Bengals' practice squad, Elliott signed with the Eagles when Caleb Sturgis was hurt opening day.

"I'm thankful I had the opportunity to try it", Elliott said.

"We got into a little bit of a rhythm".

Elliott kicked a 61-yarder as the clock expired to lift the host Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-24 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. Brissett had a nice game Sunday in the 31-28 survival test against the Browns: 17 of 24, 70.8 percent accuracy, one touchdown pass, no picks, two touchdown runs, 120.0 rating.

Put another way: Beckham wasn't apologizing for his celebration, though he understands that the 15-yard penalty that came with it wasn't in the team's best interest.

On a hot, humid day, both N.F.C. It hits other people close to home when you see a teammate or a player across the league that you know is a great person, who is out there trying to do their part, rebuilding our communities and making our communities safer and is then attacked.

Only five teams since 1980 have made the playoffs following an 0-3 start, and in his Monday conference call with reporters, Giants coach Ben McAdoo offered up his three D-words "that cause irritation" for Big Blue moving forward.

But the penalty was not costly.

On the Eagles next drive, Giants safety Landon Collins punched the ball out of tight end Zach Ertz's hands, leading to a turnover.

Orleans Darkwa ran 20 yards to the 6.

With that in mind, here's a look at three players whose stock went up and three players whose stock went down. He broke up three passes and intercepted a ball tipped by linebacker Mychal Kendricks.

Before his winning kick, Elliott missed from 52 yards earlier in the game and last week missed from 30 yards and shanked an extra point.

"I just ran over to the sidelines to get a couple extra [practice] kicks in", Elliott said. "You have ups and downs, and you move onto next week".

Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson's pass-happy approach has led to a one-sided plan of attack, with the team throwing the ball 85 times compared to just 41 rushes. During the course of writing this, Manning has thrown another interception, following a quick screen to Brandon Marshall for four yards. That one probably would have been good from 60 yards away as well.

QB Kirk Cousins finished with 365 yards and 3 TD passes, including a highlight toss and snag by WR Josh Doctson in the third quarter. Wendell Smallwood has also helped by sharing the workload out of the backfield with eight carries for 38 yards.

The Giants had scored exactly 13 points in 11 quarters and counting on Sunday when - finally - they found the end zone in Philadelphia.

On fourth and 2, defensive tackle Tim Jernigan managed to get pressure on Eli Manning as he targeted Shepard once again.
