They also could go without starting safety Rodney McLeod, who'll test his hamstring in the pre-game Sunday.
Ben McAdoo's New York Giants (0-2) clown show rolls into eastern Pennsylvania to perform in front of the resurgent Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) Sunday. A Darren Sproles fumble on a punt return and a Jake Elliott missed field goal gave the Chiefs the extra momentum to take control of the game The Giants also had themselves a not so delightful week as they let up a punt return touchdown to rookie Jamal Agnew and Brad Wing just looked flat out awful. We're not participating in the anthem today - not to be disrespectful to the anthem, but to remove ourselves from the circumstance. The Giants finished as the No. 1 wild-card with a 10-6 record and got red hot in the playoffs winning three road games before stunning the undefeated Patriots in the Super Bowl.
With his team reeling after back-to-back losses to the Cowboys and Lions - one more dispiriting than the other - and with his offense in the kind of disarray never before seen in the Eli Manning era, McAdoo abruptly has moved to the epicenter of his team's early-season dysfunction.
What does Giants history tell us the last few times the they've started 0-2? The three-time Pro Bowler leads all active players with 19,144 all-purpose yards. "I don't think it's the playcalling that's been the problem", Manning said.
"Once we break through this wall", Adams said, "we're gonna get the ball rolling". So we'll evaluate the whole thing.
At the time, it was only the Giants' second touchdown of the season. That Trump heard applause for his insistence that kneeling for our anthem is inherently disrespectful absolutely speaks to a strong current of belief across this country, one that should be afforded the same brand of respect for its existence as these players deserve for their belief in the opposite, even if that makes you angry.
Pederson, who calls the Eagles' plays, could find himself in the same situation if his offense sputters.
The Eagles will head out to Los Angeles to play the Chargers in Week 4.
Well said, but what about the original question - is this a must-win game? Following the score, Ertz fumbled near the Giants sideline at the Philadelphia 33. This weakens both, the offense and the defense of the New York Giants.
At a rally in Alabama on Friday, Trump said, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you say, 'Get that son of a (expletive) off the field right now. Out!"
Even when it appeared the game was destined for overtime, the Giants made some costly mistakes late. Then running back Shane Vereen stepped out of bounds after catching a short pass on the next play. We didn't play our best.
The clock is rapidly ticking on the Giants to do so. The New York Giants ground game is averaging 48.5 yards per contest, and Orleans Darkwa leads the way with 31 yards on six carries.
