Is Sunday's game a "must win" for Big Blue?

Despite only needing a half-yard, they didn't go for it from their own 34-yard line and punter Brad Wing shanked a punt that went out of bounds after just 28 yards.

Tight end Evan Engram (concussion) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (ankle) are questionable for the Giants (0-2). A hostile crowd at the Linc awaits them. "I think when somebody's down like this they're going to give us their best shot so we've got to make sure we're prepared".

An NFL Network report stated McAdoo never even considered giving up play call duties to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, despite the fact he told reporters all week it was on the table.

His playcalling has been questioned and he's considering relinquishing those duties.

"It was an organizational decision along with the players", Coach Doug Pederson said of the decision to lock arms. You've just got to believe that going through tough times will make you stronger. "But you've got take positives from everything and continue to learn". On Monday, PhillyVoice reported that McLeod's initial diagnosis was a 'grade 1 hamstring strain.' That is the lowest grade of hamstring pulls, and could keep him out short-term, but is not considered to be a long-term injury, assuming proper rest and treatment. "Hopefully, we've kind of hit the rough patch and we'll work ourselves out of it".

The Eagles were in a slugfest with the Kansas City Chiefs until the bitter end last week, which bodes well for their long term prospects this season. They're improved and eager to go 2-0 in the division.

"When we don't get the ball snapped and the play clock runs out, that's not good football", McAdoo said.

The Eagles seemed to ticket Seumalo for the spot right from the start of training camp, trading last year's starter, Allen Barbre for a seventh-round pick to the Denver Broncos (where he's a starter) and keeping Seumalo ahead of Warmack and veteran center/guard Stefan Wisniewski after he started four games last season. We've started 0-6 before. He held back nothing this week in describing the play of current starter Isaac Seumalo when discussing the move with Philly.com.

If the offense can stay on the field to keep the defense fresh, NY will be tough.

Before suffering the wrist injury that ultimately ruled him out of the game, Sproles had three carries for 11 yards.

None of the Eagles' players have knelt during the anthem this season. "It's not going to be one guy that'll do it". In any event, Washington spiked the ball, threw incomplete and then the Giants stopped two runs by Ladell Betts.

NY has Beckham, Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and rookie tight end Evan Engram.

Eagles" QB Carson Wentz: 15 TD passes, 16 INT, 4 lost fumbles in last 15 games (5-10); 5 TD passes, 0 turnovers in first 3 games (3-0) in "16. That's a talented group of receivers who should see plenty of passes coming their way.
