Including post-season games

Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , Eli Manning had led the New York Giants on 40 last-minute game-winning drives when he stepped into the huddle with the Giants trailing the San Francisco 49ers Monday night. After engineering his 41st such drive in a 27-23 victory Manning enjoyed the moment.“No, it doesn’t get old. That’s fun. It’s fun playing in those games and having a two-minute drive to win it. Those are the situations you want to be in if you want to have a chance. Obviously, you’d love to have a two-score lead with a little time, and run it out or whatnot, but you prepare and practice for those two-minute drives to go win football games. To come through is exciting. “The team needs that. The defense needs that to know that we can do that. Offense, we needed that for ourselves, saying, ‘Hey, we can win.’ If we get close in games, we can go win football games and we just had to do it.”Manning said the Giants were rewarded for continuing to work.“It means a lot, and that’s kind of what I told the guys this week. I said, ‘We’ve worked too hard not to be rewarded with wins,’ “ Manning said. “We’ve kind of stayed true to the course though, and each week prepare hard, practice well, play hard in games and we just weren’t able to get some of the outcomes or make some of the plays we needed to to win. And, today we were able to do that.”Manning was, of course, asked about the impact on him of the speculation about his future.“It’s more just getting asked about it. Just trying to – it doesn’t bother me what people say Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey , but just having to answer questions about it, I guess,” Manning said. “You want to go out there and play football and that’s what I want to do. I want to be with my team and prepare and practice and go play football and obviously, get wins and feel good about what we’re doing.”More from the locker roomSaquon Barkley on his reaction to the game-winning drive ...“After we went and scored, I came back to the sideline and said to him, ‘Man, you’ve been doing this since I was like 12!’ That’s Eli. When he’s in one of those moments, he’s a heck of a player. You know why when you’re around him. When you’re young and you’re watching him on the television, you’re like, ‘Oh wow!’ It’s his craft that he works on. He’s such a smart player and such a hard worker. When he’s in those positions, he just thrives.”Odell Beckham Jr. on the game-winning drive ...“It’s like I always tell Eli]. It’s the same thing I always tell him: ‘take me home 10’. He’s been there plenty of times. We put together a drive. Our offensive line did a great job all night. He had time to throw. I have to back to watch the film to see everything but I feel like we put a game together. It wasn’t my very best game but we got the win, and that all that matters.”Beckham on a chance to salvage the season ...“We are working on seven more games. We are working on Tampa. We’ll see what happens after that. I don’t know about salvaging. I wasn’t joking when I said we have to win eight games. That’s obviously the goal. I don’t come here to line up and lose. We come here to win these games.”Evan Engram on Manning in the final drive ...“Eli has been doing this forever. He was on the same beat back there. Everybody else was anxious, ready, hopping around. It was a big drive. We have just been working and fighting all season. Tonight was a big night for him and a big night for our team. It was just great to be out there and be a part of that with him.”Engram on making three of his four catches on the final drive ...“I mean, all night, honestly, I was just working and working and working. The perfect time came. It was just a great team effort tonight. That whole last drive, we had a couple of penalties that backed us up and put us out of field goal range and we still answered. We were down 10 points and we put two big drives together to tie it up and keep ourselves in the game. Forget about getting involved at the end. It just felt good to be a part of a great team win tonight.”Wide receiver Sterling Shepard on Manning ...“It frustrates me when people go at him. I see that from the media, but you wouldn’t want a better guy with the ball in his hands. You saw what he did on that last drive. When we need him Alec Ogletree Jersey , he’s going to come through for us.”Shepard on getting a victory ...“It means a lot to the team. We’re not a group of guys that’s going to quit. We want to show everybody what the first half of the season should’ve looked like. We’re going to try and accomplish that in the second half of the season. Like I said, guys aren’t going to quit and we’re going to finish this thing out.” Breathe a little easier Philadelphia and surrounding areas. The Eagles are back and looking super.Just goes to show you what a little urgency, some big plays — and a timely game against the New York Giants can do for the defending Super Bowl champions.Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes and the Eagles got an early lift from their defense and special teams in beating the struggling Giants 34-13 on Thursday night, avoiding their first three-game losing streak since the 2016 season."It's a big win for us," said Wentz, who finished 26 of 36 for 278 yards and no interceptions. "NFC East and the conference. It's huge. Being 3-3 is better than 2-4. This is more like who we are. We can build from this."The win put the Eagles into a first place tie with Washington (2-2) in the NFC East with Dallas (2-3) a half game back. The Giants are fading fast.Wentz sandwiched touchdowns passes of 13 and 1 yard to Alshon Jeffery around a 10-yarder to tight end Zach Ertz to help the Eagles build a 31-6 lead. They beat the Giants (1-5) for the fourth straight time and seventh in eight games.Corey Clement scored on a 1-yard run and Jake Elliott added field goals of 33 and 30 yards."This is finally the game where we played like the Philadelphia Eagles," said Ertz, who was limited to seven passes for 43 yards. "We're finally the Eagles again."Rookie halfback Saquon Barkley scored on a 50-yard run and rushed for 130 yards in one of the few bright spots for the Giants' offense, which was booed repeatedly in losing at home for the third time. Aldrick Rosas had field goals of 33 and 21 yards.This was seen as a must-win game for both teams in the weak and wide-open NFC East, and the Eagles went out and grabbed it.They came into the game having scored seven points in the first quarter and they doubled that against New York.Eli Manning was under pressure all night from the Eagles. They sacked him four times and hit him 13 other times. He finished 24 of 43 for 281 yards."We want to get after the passer every week," coach Doug Pederson said. "These games are battles. It all comes down to which team gets after the passer. We hit Eli and put him on the ground. That was big."It started on the opening series.Kamu Grugier-Hill intercepted Manning's pass that was tipped by fellow linebacker Jordan Hicks and he returned it to Giants 16. Three plays later, Wentz was forced out of the pocket and found Jeffery after getting all day to throw.A 46-yard run by Barkley set up Rosas' 33-yarder to cut the gap to 7-3, but the Eagles took control later in the quarter after DeAndre Carter returned a punt 23 yards to the New York 44. Passes of 17 to Jeffery and 14 to Clement set up Clement's touchdown run.A spectacular tackle-breaking run by Barkley on a 55-yard screen pass helped cut the lead to 14-6 in the second quarter but Wentz hit a wide-open Nelson Agholer on a third and 3 and connected with Ertz for a 21-6 lead on the next play.Elliott made it 24-6 just before halftime and Philadelphia put the game out of reach with a 75-yard drive that ended with a short Jeffery TD catch."We didn't do anything well enough to win tonight," Giants coach Pat Shurmur said. "Credit Philadelphia. Good football team."The only thing meaningful after that was Barkley's touchdown run."How do I feel about my performance tonight?" Barkley asked rhetorically. "Doesn't matter to me. We didn't win."FAN OF THE GAMEOdell Beckham Jr. headbutted a giant cooling fan during a second-half fit that also included him screaming from the sideline and eventually being calmed by Barkley. Beckham also left for the locker room before the end of the first half, though Shurmur said Beckham was excused early because of cramping.Beckham said his tirade was just a bit of self-motivation."I was just trying to get myself going," he said. "I felt like some of those plays where I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff. So I was just trying to get myself fired up. I did that and it helped me."Thursday's scene comes a week after Beckham bemoaned the lack of downfield passes from Manning and the team's subpar energy following a 33-31 loss to Carolina. Beckham had six catches for 44 yards Thursday, and his longest reception was 12 yards.INJURIES: Eagles LT Jason Peters left with a biceps injury. Backup cornerback Sidney Jones left in the first half with a hamstring injury. The Giants had LB Ray Ray Amstrong (concussion), WR Cody Latimer (hamstring) and CB Antonio Hamilton (illness) leave the game.BARKLEY GAINS: Barkley has gained at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first six career games. He is one off the NFL rookie record set by Kansas City's Kareem Hunt.UP NEXTEagles: Host Carolina on Oct. 21.Giants: At Atlanta on Oct. 22.
